Know More about this tour

Your guided evening tour begins along Ratchawong Pier on the Chao phraya river. Step back in time to the old markets in Yaowarat, located in the heart of the vibrant Chinatown district. The land that now occupies the Grand palace once belonged to Chinese traders. When King Rama I moved the capital from Thonburi to Bangkok over 200 years ago, the community was asked to move and the region became the capital of the Kingdom of Siam.

Continue from the pier and walk along Song Wat Road, which is bordered by old business buildings and warehouses - most of which are still operating today. See Wat traimit Temple that houses a large seated Buddha and the Chinese Museum which preserves the history of the Chinese in Thailand. You'll stop at a 100 year-old coffee shop on Pha Sai Road. Relax and enjoy coffee and a snack while you take in the atmosphere.

Walk to Issarnuparb Road and a market specializing in Chinese religious products, fresh food. In the evening Yaowaraj Road becomes a sea of street stalls, collectively becoming one large food bazaar. The food options range from street stalls to the finest Chinese restaurants.

Your Chinatown and Night market tour concludes at Pakklong Talad ("talad" meaning market), the largest wholesale flower and vegetable market in Bangkok. You will be amazed by the amount of flowers, all in different colors and shades overflowing in the streets.

Your guide can assist you in getting a taxi back to your hotel if needed.

    Enthusiastic guide with reasonable English and GSOH. Chinatown was very crowded because of the Chinese New Year, but he guided us through the crowds and made sure we all kept up. The boat trip gave us a chance to view Bangkok from the river, which provided new views and a little fresh air. The food was eaten where there were no other Westerners eating, so we got the local version, restaurant version and street food version.

    We all went away feeling we had eaten enough for a week, but of course the following day I was dining again. This is Bangkok!

    We had a small group of 5 travelers. Everything was great from the guide to the sights, shopping and the food.

    Our guide "Gof"was really great. Showed us around and let us sample some food and beverages from shops we probably wouldn't have gone into alone. We enjoyed the river cruise and seeing the vibrancy of Bangkok city.
