Chinatown Street Food Tour on Foot
One of the world’s best rated street food destinations, Bangkok’s Chinatown is an easy place to get lost and submerged in its sea of food stalls. “Where to start?” or “what to eat?” are the first questions that rise in the mind of Bangkok’s first timers or even avid foodies. Chinatown, featured by CNN Travel and living up other media’s reputation, becomes extremely lively at night when stalls of Cantonese, seafood, Chinese-Thai savory and sweet dishes are put up on the main road and its side lanes. Our 3.5 hour tour walks deep to explore several delicious gems and hidden goodies, going down streets and soi (alleys). You’ll get to eat like a local at specialty restuarants, rub shoulders with Thai diners, hear exciting stories that restaurant owners want to share, and watch interesting characters and passer-by. The tour doesn’t only make your tummy happy but also offers you Chinatown’s food scene in a nutshell. We’ll also stop at the neighborhood’s landmarks where the neighborhood’s culture and traditions are demonstrated live in front of you.
