This night tour was awarded TripAdvisor Traveller’s Choice "No. 1 Experience in Thailand" in 2018, 2020 & 2023, 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 12 guests (available daily except Mondays)
• Private Tour for just yourself (suitable for families with young children).

As a lone traveller I joined a group of other travellers and I loved that this brought us to parts of Bangkok I’d otherwise not have seen whilst being able to chat to folks from other parts of the world. It was great to have P be there to help us buy street food and tell us a little about Thai society. A really great evening, great value and good fun.

Best way to see Bangkok!! Sasa is an amazing guide; so friendly, helpful, funny and knowledgeable. The tuk tuk drivers were all very friendly and experienced too. Sasa took extra care of my mother-in-law which was much appreciated as there are a few steps to climb in the temple and the streets can be busy and narrow. All the food was great; it was good to try the local snacks in the market, dinner in the navy club was delicious as was the secret dessert in Chinatown - we definitely didn’t go hungry. It was really interesting to see the 24 hour flower market and be able to walk through the busy part which we would never have done on our own. Definitely worth the money and we would recommend to anyone visiting Thailand.

20 stars for our guide Sasa!!!!! This was honestly one of the best tours we have ever taken! The perfect way to orient yourself to Bangkok. 10/10 would recommend taking this at the beginning of your visit so you can really get a feel for the city, the history, the food and the nightlife! We loved our tour and cant wait to come back and do it again one day!
