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

1. Bangkok: Markets, Temples and Food Night Tour by Tuk Tuk

Discover the beauty of Bangkok by night, and visit sites that most tourists only see during the daytime. Zip thorugh the streets of Bangkok in the back of a tuk-tuk and stop to try some delicious food and drinks. Visit sights like the Wat Pho, Wat Aru, the flower market, and Chinatown. 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.

Bangkok: E-Scooter Night Tour with Local Street Food

2. Bangkok: E-Scooter Night Tour with Local Street Food

The tour starts the convenient meeting point where you'll be given a short training session on how to ride the electric scooter. After the instructions, you’ll have a test run to get comfortable on the e-scooter then start the tour. First, you’ll get a brief history of Bangkok as you ride to the first stop. Now that you’re confident on the scooter you’ll tour through a few lesser-known areas to see Bangkok like a local, including a beautiful temple. Next up stop at Wat Arun and take photos of it shimmering in the night light, then cross the Chao Phraya River on a local ferry.   Once on the other side of the river, ride to Wat Pho, the largest temple in Bangkok famous for its huge reclining Buddha statue. Next, see the royal Grand Palace at night. Although it is closed at this time, it's still a magnificent sight to behold.   The next stop will be for a street food dinner where you'll get to eat like a local at a popular stall before moving on to the 24-hour flower market, Pak Khlong Talat. Delight in the colorful, fragrant, and exotic fresh flowers in the market, and see everything from common roses to bright orchids, lilies, and more.   Finally, visit Wat Prayoon with its huge white stupa lit up at night. After a ride along the riverside and winding back streets, you’ll arrive once again at the starting point of the tour.

Bangkok: Grand Palace, Wat Arun and Wat Pho Evening Tour

3. Bangkok: Grand Palace, Wat Arun and Wat Pho Evening Tour

With an action-packed itinerary in store, the tour will start with swinging by a few of Bangkok’s most-loved attractions. These include the Grand Palace and Wat Phra Kaew, also known as the Temple of the Emerald Buddha because of the enormous statue inside. Stroll around the old city of Bangkok. The only place to rival it is your first stop, Wat Pho. This ancient temple is home to over 1,000 Buddha statues, one of which measures more than 150 feet in length. Next, see the sights along the Chao Phraya River on a traditional riverboat. Your guide will then lead you to an authentic Thai market where you can tuck in for a tasty local dinner. After eating, explore bejeweled Wat Arun (Temple of Dawn). Stroll the banks of the river and check out Kuan An Keng Shrine, the Portuguese Santa Cruz Church, and Wat Prayurawongsawas, three monuments of religious importance to the locals. For the final treat of the tour, cross the river by bridge to reach Pak Klong Talad, the city’s largest flower market, overflowing with garlands, bouquets, pot plants, and fresh fruit. The tour will end after taking a tuk-tuk ride to Chinatown. The largest Chinese community outside of China is responsible for some seriously tasty fusion dishes; you can sample some fare after this evening tour.

We had a great time on the scooter tour. It was a great way to see many different aspects of Bangkok including markets, street food, riding down alleys and seeing how locals live. We had a delicious dinner in a local home-style restaurant. Our tour guide Scott took great care of us, sharing information about all the places we visited. He took photos and shared with us, and made the scooter riding fun but also safe and easy to learn.

Highly recommended! Our guides A and Ahmed were excellent and riding around in a tuk tuk all night was great fun. The tour was a great mix of sight seeing, exploring the city and tasting delicious food so we were very glad that we signed up for it for our first night in the city.

Elena was a fantastic tour guide! She was very knowledgeable and energetic the entire time. Food was amazing and the background history of all the temples was an eye opening experience.

Highly recommend to know Bangkok like a local within 4hrs. Well organize and amazing service

Very nice night tour with very nice guide and very good organised.
