Full description
This foodie walk starts in a neighbourhood that dates back to the founding of the city. You’ll pass by small canals, local market stalls, and heritage buildings, some of which still have signs of their original residents. As you walk, you’ll get to sample at least 6 different Thai dishes at a selection of small local restaurants and street food carts. Your guide will introduce you to noodle dishes that are commonly eaten by Bangkok locals such as kuay chap nam sai (rolled rice noodles in soup), rad na (noodles in gravy) or ba mi moo daeng (egg noodle soup with wontons).

Other savory dishes you might sample include Thai sausages or typical everyday dishes such as pad krapow (spicy basil stir-fry), khao man gai (chicken rice) or gai/moo bing (grilled chicken or pork skewers). Whichever dishes are available on the day, you can be sure they’re fresh, homemade and delicious, otherwise, the locals wouldn’t keep coming back for them. With a full stomach, walk back towards the starting point, passing some of the Old City’s most impressive historic buildings that are beautifully lit up at night.

Before the tour ends, you’ll divert into the grounds of Wat Pho, also known as the Temple of the Reclining Buddha. This temple is packed with visitors every day, but after dark, very few people enter. You won’t be able to see the golden reclining Buddha, but the temple’s spectacular buildings at night make for a magical experience. The place is truly special and a pleasure to see without the crowds. The tour ends at Sanam Chai MRT station. Your local guide can give you suggestions on where to head if you’re looking for a night out or direct you back to your accommodation using the MRT (subway) or local taxis.
