Bangkok: Midnight Food Tour by Tuk-Tuk

1. Bangkok: Midnight Food Tour by Tuk-Tuk

Get off the beaten tourist tracks and follow a well-planned route to savor typical Isan food from north-east Thailand, the best Pad Thai in town, scrumptious chicken fried noodle and much more. See the landmarks of the Old Town along the way as you pass temples and flower markets without the tourist crowds. Explore and wander around the peaceful Wat Pho, which is also known as Temple of the Reclining Buddha, at night. Enjoy a drink at a rooftop bar with a stunning view of the Chao Phraya River with Wat Arun on the other side of town. The experience will be ended just before midnight and you will be transferred back to your hotel in Bangkok downtown by a tuk-tuk driver.  

Bangkok by Night Tuk Tuk Tour: Markets, Temples & Food

2. Bangkok by Night Tuk Tuk Tour: Markets, Temples & Food

Discover the beauty of Bangkok by night, and visit sites that most tourists only see during the daytime. On this 4-hour evening tour by tuk tuk you’ll take in some of Bangkok's most famous temples, including Wat Pho. Take a walk through local Bangkok night markets, such as the 24-hour flower market that comes to life as the night goes on. You may even be surprised with stops at places you’ve never heard of! While the temple buildings may be closed at night the grounds are often beautifully lit up at night and you will walk around two temples including the famous Wat Arun. You’ll also stop to sample some of the best food in the city, whether that be random snacks in a market, some of the city’s best noodles, or dessert in Chinatown. You certainly won’t go hungry, so there’s no need to eat beforehand! Vegetarian food options are available throughout the tour. During most of the tour you’ll get around by tuk tuk, and traveling at night should mean a lot less traffic and cooler temperatures than during the day.

Ayutthaya Evening Tuk Tuk Temples Tour From Bangkok

3. Ayutthaya Evening Tuk Tuk Temples Tour From Bangkok

On this tuk tuk tour, experience the city at night to see the lit up temples of Ayutthaya. The first stop is just in time for dinner as you will get to experience the local night market and explore different Thai dishes! Afterwards, start your journey to the 3 significant temples of Ayutthaya. The first temple on the itinerary is Wat Phra Si Sanphet, which was the holiest temple on the site of the old Royal Palace in Thailand's ancient capital of Ayutthaya until the city was completely destroyed by the Burmese in 1767. It was the grandest and most beautiful temple in the capital and it served as a model for Wat Phra Kaeo in Bangkok. Then, visit Wat Ratchaburana, which was founded in 1424 by King Borommarachathirat II of the Ayutthaya Kingdom and built on the cremation site of his two elder brothers. The two brothers had fought to their deaths in a duel for the royal succession to their father Intha Racha. In 1957, the temple's crypt was looted of a large number of Buddha images and gold artifacts. The thieves were later caught, but few of the treasures were recovered. Enjoy the last stop at Wat Chaiwatthanaram, which is a Buddhist temple in the city of Ayutthaya Historical Park located on the west bank of the Chao Phraya River, outside Ayutthaya island. It is one of Ayutthaya's best-known temples and a major tourist attraction. The tour will end with a transfer back to your hotel in Bangkok with a unique memory from your time in Thailand. 

Old Bangkok Temples and Markets by Tuk Tuk

4. Old Bangkok Temples and Markets by Tuk Tuk

Climb aboard a tuk-tuk for a rambling adventure through Bangkok. These little vehicles are similar to rickshaws and are the best way to discover Bangkok’s buzzing backstreets. Your driver guide will show you all the famous and not so famous sights of the city. Marvel at the Phra Sumeru Fortress, visit the quirky Amulet Market and take-in the stunning Wat Phra Chetuphon Temple, the center of Buddhism in Thailand. Your guide will give you a tour of this ancient temple complex. Your next destination will be Wat Saket, another temple that lies at the foot of the Golden Mount. Your local guide will take you up the 318 steps (sorry, your tuk-tuk can’t help you here) to the top for a 360-degree view of the surrounding Rattanakosin Island, a view which makes the climb totally worth it. You’ll hop back into your tuk-tuk and head towards Pak Klong Talad, the flower market. This is the biggest flower market in Thailand and is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Many different types of flowers are shipped here and the market acts as a distribution center, transferring flowers to other cities throughout the country. Your guide will introduce you to a local market vendor who'll show you how to fold the petals of lotus flowers just as Thai people often do when they use them in worship. You'll have a chance to try preparing the flowers for yourself and we'll take them to our next stop to learn how local people use them at the temple. Just around the corner is the small community of Ban Baat who have been making alms bowls for monks by hand since the late 1700s. In Thai Buddhism, monks traditionally walk through the local community at dawn to collect donations of food so an alms bowl is an essential accessory. Learn how a handful of families in the locality are preserving the traditional methods that you'll discover as you walk through this hidden village. Meet one family who will give you the chance to try your hand at whichever stage of bowl-making they happen to be at on the day, it could be hammering in the pattern or polishing the finished surface. Onward you’ll go to Wat Po, the temple that houses the most beautiful reclining Buddha image in the country, which is also the birthplace of Thai massage and medicines. Your local guide will take you on a tour of the area and tell you stories about one of the most fascinating parts of Bangkok. This temple is one of the places that should not be missed when you visit Bangkok. From here you can either continue to explore on your own, or your guide will be happy to point you in the direction of your accommodation. No doubt they’ll recommend you take a tuk-tuk back, just to top off this tuk-tuk experience perfectly.

Bangkok Half-Day Rickshaw Ride and Walking Tour

5. Bangkok Half-Day Rickshaw Ride and Walking Tour

Explore Bangkok like a local on a combined 5-hour tour by rickshaw and on foot. Discover a side of the city that the brochures and travel magazines don’t show you, and see what happens behind and away from Bangkok’s concrete buildings. Your first stop will be a typical Thai temple with Chinese influences. Your guide will tell you the story of the temple and Buddhism in general. Continue at a relaxed pace through one of the city’s the poorest neighborhoods. Learn first-hand how the locals live on Bangkok’s many canals. Next, cross the Chao Phraya River by traditional long tail boat. On the other side, enter a jungle of banana, mango, papaya and coconut trees. Continue to a beautiful park to feed hundreds of fish in the pond. Keep a lookout for the resident monitor lizards. Continue your journey by samlor, a traditional Thai rickshaw or “bicycle taxi.” Stop at the oldest temple in the area, before heading to a riverside restaurant for a Thai lunch overlooking the “River of Kings.” Re-board your rickshaw for the short ride to the pier, where a public boat will take you back to the beating heart of Bangkok.
