Bangkok is too hot? There is too much traffic? We feel you! Have you ever wondered what happens in Bangkok after midnight, after everything is closed and streets are empty? Rather than resting in a hotel, take advantage of these golden hours to explore Bangkok’s Old City’s street food scene and experience local people’s nightly activities unique to the neighborhood. Time to put on your Vampire cape, get on the Batmobile, and roam Bangkok with Tour Guide Ron! (The cape is not included. Wear it at your own risk as some superstitious Thais might mistake you for a real vampire. And the Batmobile is really not a Batmobile, it’s a Tuk Tuk!)
We will visit 2 markets, one is a knickknack night market in Chinatown where you can buy souvenirs in a bunch at wholesale prices to take home. The other is Bangkok’s biggest flower market. We will be there to see the market at its peak hours when it is most busy and bustling. Here we will buy some fruits and flowers to use as offerings to monks later on. After the market, we will cruise Bangkok’s Old City. Let’s see how fast our Tuk Tuk can go on empty streets! We will pass lots of historical attractions, lit up and super pretty at night. And just before dawn, we go to a Buddhist temple to give monk’s their morning alms, offering them the fruits and flowers we buy earlier. Before the day breaks and city lives begin, our Tuk Tuk will drop you off at your hotel or at Phaya Thai Airport Rail Link station where you can head to Suvarnabhumi Airport.
Tour Guide Ron is a food tour guide at Bangkok Food Tours. The funny and heavy guy knows about the best spots to eat in Bangkok. He’s excited to show you perspectives of Bangkok at night never known among average travelers. Even if you have to trade the following day sleeping in, this is definitely worths it. The night will be FUN, cultural, and amazing!
