Overview

This night tour was awarded TripAdvisor Traveller’s Choice "No. 1 Experience in Thailand" in 2018 & 2020, and for good reason.

Exploring at night and by the iconic tuk tuk is a great way to discover Bangkok and learn about the local culture.

On this 4-hour tour you will:
• Whizz around Bangkok in a tuk tuk
• Visit The Flower Market, the grounds of Wat Arun, and Chinatown
• Explore the historic part of Bangkok, and see famous temples and sights illuminated at night
• Enjoy snacks, dinner and a dessert!

This is considered a cultural tour with food. However, it should not be considered an in-depth food tour.

This tour is available in 2 options:
• Small group join in tour with maximum 10 guests (available Wed / Fri / Sat / Sun)
• Private Tour for just yourself.

NOTE: We are now regularly running this tour after almost 2 years disruption due to COVID. We are regularly reviewing the route and may make changes as needed.

What To Expect

Thonburi
For this tour your will need to make your way to our meeting point at Krung Thonburi BTS Station. Here you will meet your guide, who will introduce the tour before you hop into your tuk-tuk (2 or 3 people per tuk tuk).

Krung Thonburi is the first station when you cross over the river to the Thonburi side of Bangkok. Thonburi has a much more local feel and we will explore both local life and history on this side of the river before crossing over to the historic area of Rattanakosin.

10 minutes • Admission Ticket Free

Wongwian Yai area
We will stop at a local street food market area to sample a selection of snacks and learn about the local way of life and culture.

Temple Of Dawn (Wat Arun)
Wat Arun (The Temple of Dawn) is one of Bangkok's most famous temples, but very few people get to explore it after dark, when it is beautifully lit up. While some of the buildings are closed, the grounds are magnificent at night and truly memorable.

We will cross back over the river to explore the historic area of Rattanakosin, which is where many of the most famous landmarks in Bangkok are.

Bangkok
We will stop at a local restaurant for dinner. Our restaurant choice does change to ensure we best accommodate the group.

We will pass by The Grand Palace, and while it is closed in the evening it makes a great photo stop with it lit up in the background.

Bangkok by night is full of spectacular sights. My favourite part of the tour was being able to sample a variety of street food. Our guide was very knowledgeable and kept us all informed about the history of all the sites that we visited

Vi/Bi/Or Pi? I'm not sure how to say her name, but she was excellent! Just had a wonderful private tour of all the markets that we would never have stumbled upon on our own. Very good experience, would highly recommend. She was very informative and led my wife and I to all the markets and temples and we learned a lot! Thank you!
Great evening

Tuk tuk are dangerous things. However, driven properly in its natural environment, they are exciting and a perfect way to get around. The markets fascinated, the food there was good. Palaces and temple at night were beautiful. Jo Jo was passionate in telling the story.
Good
