"[Our docent] was a lovely host, and if it wasn’t for their guidance – communicating with the locals, navigating, trying out new food and immersing ourselves in the local culture would have been an immensely difficult task.”
Bangkok Food Tour
Even walking in some of the most modern areas of the city, there are markets or street vendors under the sleek elevated walkways. Throughout the city, alleys turn into makeshift canteens at lunch and dinner time, many serving up tastier food than physical restaurants. We'll start at one of city's greatest concentrations of this phenomenon, located in its bustling Chinatown. Considered the world's oldest Chinatown, the area—and its culinary offerings—has evolved over the centuries, creating inventive, distinctly Bangkok-style takes on Thai food. Here we'll learn about the city's various specialties, how they're prepared, and how to go about ordering on our own before sampling a few of their delicious dishes, from soup to skewers.
By the end of our stroll we'll have a well-rounded introduction to the different types of Thai markets and their role in Thai culture, leaving with the right tools to navigate markets on our own. For those looking to delve further into Thai food, we also offer Bangkok Market Tour
, which visits a day market and focuses more on the basics of Thai culinary traditions.

We can warn your docent, so that they can make alternative arrangements.
