Know More about this tour

Meet your guide at Saphan Taksin BTS Station in the morning and start out on foot through the Bang Rak district of Bangkok. Meaning ‘village of love’ in Thai, Bang Rak is a popular neighborhood for couples to register their marriages, but the area also serves up a delectable selection of tasty bites. You’ll stop at approximately eight venues for 15 tastings, so be sure to arrive hungry!
From the skytrain station, stroll through Bang Rak’s backstreets to hidden gems. Visit a nearby street vendor selling curry puffs to sink your teeth into. Around the corner lies the Bang Rak Bazaar were you can sip Thai iced tea or coffee en route to a stall selling curry paste.
Learn about this culinary staple and discover ancient regional recipes before heading to Bangkok’s second oldest wet market, which features a wide array of meat and produce. Bite into a sample of Thai fruits and discover a range of tropical tastes as you master the art of fruit selection.
With a small group you’ll gain intimate knowledge of the neighborhood’s history, culture and cuisine from your experienced guide, including a stop at a local Chinese grocery, located in a traditional shophouse. Try Chinese herbal drinks with unique medicinal properties, followed by a visit to a nearby roast duck stall. At this family-run establishment started in 1909, share plates of fried and roasted chicken noodles topped with egg.
Walk down narrow winding lanes to a traditional Thai sweet shop and enjoy five treats from a scrumptious dessert platter. Just save some room for som tam (green papaya salad) at a favorite local eatery that specializes in more than 20 different varieties. Try a couple of versions as well as larb, a delicious minced meat salad from northern Thailand.
Get a taste of flavorful Thai curry at your last stop: a traditional royal Thai restaurant run by descendants of the royal family. Savor regional flavors and learn how the spicy tastes of Thai cuisine are properly mixed together.
Your tour ends at an easily reached BTS Station, with your guide on hand to provide directions to your next destination. After experiencing first-hand the sights, smells and flavors in the heart of Bang Rak, you’ll have the confidence to explore on your own from here.

  • Wonderful experience during my stop over at Bangkok! The half day tour was just right to me, it starts not that early so I had a good sleep and it fits in short time slot.

    Tried different styles of food from street food to Royal cuisine. The tour guide was really helpful and spoke good English, without her guide, I won't be able to experience the local markets, which was the highlights of tour.

    The improvement? I found some half day tour include a short diversion to local communities such as Buddhist Temple, if it's included in this tour it definitely will make it outstanding.

  • This was a lovely way to see the City and to experience the life of the real people living there. Our guide was very good. We had 12 stops and although it was very hot she maintained a reasonable pace that we could cope with. We were in a small group of only 4. We had a big variety of food and drinks. In the wet market I was pleased to be wearing closed shoes. We saw a woman mixing curry paste and the drawback was that we could not buy it as it would not have lasted until we came home. We tried a big variety of food, fruits and teas and each tasting add another layer to this vibrant city and its people. We ended off at a cool oasis which was at a restaurant which is an old house which is still used by the Royal Family. This is a gorgeous place and we left it with heavy hearts. Our tour ended close to a BST point which made it easy for us to find our way home. If i visited the city again I would do the tour again as it also gave me a different perspective on the street food.

  • Our tour guide was amazing and the food that we had was out of this world good. Highly recommended. Please go on an empty stomach!

  • Attended this good tour with Joker from Taste of Thailand. He lived up to his name, making jokes with my fellow friends on the tour, a couple from USA. This tour is all on foot around the Bangrak area - we sampled food from the street, a local food hall and fruit shop. The venues change according to time and availability - on my night, I was fortunate to have the best Duck and Egg Noodle at Prachak Ped Yang and a lavish Green Curry at the high class Than Ying Royal Cuisine restaurant. It was an eye opening and stomach filling experience!

  • Amazing tour tasting delicious food and seeing the vibrant city. Noom was a great tour guide who made this a very special experience.

  • Don't ask me what we ate because we ate so much and so many different food it was amazing. Guide was great at making sure we had enough to eat and that that we knew what we were eating. We had street food, fruits, and restaurant food. The tour ended at a special white tablecloth restaurant that was originally owned by royalty. The guide was knowledgeable and spoke great English. We got more than our money's worth!!

  • Felt just like an episode of Anthony Bourdain's No Reservation. Highly recommended cultural experience.

  • our tour are kind,courteous and energetic all throughout our tour.
    Worth the trip. and lots of food tasting.

  • The tour was really good and Khwan was super nice! We tried some interesting fruit and good food. I would have liked to try something really eccentric and exciting too like insects but unfortunatelly was not possible.

  • Great trip, lots of different foods, lots of history and a lot of laughs, especially when our tour guide was talking about a rough skinned lamb for ages... until we worked out he meant lime :D
