This night tour was awarded TripAdvisor Traveller’s Choice "No. 1 Experience in Thailand" in 2018 & 2020, and for good reason.

Exploring at night and by the iconic tuk tuk is a great way to discover Bangkok and learn about the local culture.

On this 4-hour tour you will:
• Whizz around Bangkok in a tuk tuk
• Visit The Flower Market, the grounds of Wat Arun, and Chinatown
• Explore the historic part of Bangkok, and see famous temples and sights illuminated at night
• Enjoy snacks, dinner and a dessert!

This is considered a cultural tour with food. However, it should not be considered an in-depth food tour.

This tour is available in 2 options:
• Small group join in tour with maximum 10 guests (available Wed / Fri / Sat / Sun)
• Private Tour for just yourself.

NOTE: We are now regularly running this tour after almost 2 years disruption due to COVID. We are regularly reviewing the route and may make changes as needed.

This tour was sooooo amazing. Please do it! You get to experience Bangkok in its fullest. Pat was our tour guide and he was so knowledgeable and attentive. You get to eat a lot, so make sure you are hungry. The food is delicious and you walk a lot too. I did it after a 22 hour flight and I was exhausted. They are a lot of fun too!
