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.

Bangkok: Railway Market and Floating Market Private Tour

4. Bangkok: Railway Market and Floating Market Private Tour

Experience Thailand's unique market culture on this unique tour. Start with a drive to the railway market, located about 2 hours from Bangkok. Watch as vendors set up their goods along active railway tracks, with fresh produce, cooking supplies and more all lined up a mere few inches from the track's edge. See what happens when the train comes through: vendors gather up their things and lower their canopies and step aside as the train travels right through the middle of the market, getting back to business as soon as it has departed. Afterwards, continue on a short drive to a palm sugar plantation, where you’ll visit the house of a villager who still makes palm sugar the traditional way. Next, board a small boat for a ride through narrow village canals, to reach the famous floating market of Damnoen Saduak. Get off the boat here and walk around to explore more of the market. Around noon, head back to Bangkok and return to the meeting point which is right next to BTS (Skytrain) station National Stadium.

With an action-packed itinerary in store, the tour will start with swinging by a few of Bangkok’s most-loved attractions.

Old Bangkok Temples and Markets by Tuk Tuk

6. 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.

Private Bangkok: Chinatown Sightseeing and Street Food Tour

8. Private Bangkok: Chinatown Sightseeing and Street Food Tour

This tour of Bangkok will take you through Bangkok’s iconic Chinatown, a neighborhood so rich in sights, sounds, and smells that it could only really be described as an assault on the senses (in a good way!). Taking a stroll through this neighborhood is one of the best things to do in Bangkok, and with a local to guide you along, you’ll never miss a beat. Begin this tour at Ratchawong Pier, where you’ll step back in to the old markets in Yaowarat, right in the heart of Chinatown. It doesn’t get any more old-school Bangkok than this – these Chinese locals were traders living in the villages of Bangkok before it became the capital. Your local guide will tell you all about the history of this area, and why it’s such an important part of Chinatown. From the pier, your Bangkok tour will continue to Song Wat Road, which is bordered by old business buildings and warehouses that are still operating today, and also head towards the plastic and leather products quarter on Yaowa Phanit Road. This part of the tour is a journey through the bustling businesses of Chinatown, where you’ll be able to see the locals go about their daily duties and get a feel of what it would be like to live here. From industry to ancient history, the next stop on your tour will lead you to Wat Traimit Temple, an incredible sight to behold and one of the things in Bangkok you can't miss. This stunning temple enshrines the world’s largest solid gold seated Buddha from the Sukhothai Era, measuring nearly five meters high and weighing five and a half tonnes. Here your guide will let you in on the local secrets and history behind the Buddha, and the legendary tales that surround the original Buddha that sat there. This temple also houses the Chinese Museum, where you’ll learn all about the history of the Chinese people in Thailand and the fascinating relationship between these two countries. Next, get into everything you’ve been waiting for – bring on the food! With your local guide, head to a 100-year old coffee shop on Phat Sai Road, where you’ll be treated to a coffee, snack, and the opportunity to sit back and soak up the atmosphere. Fully rejuvenated, head to a market specializing in Chinese religious products and fresh food. At night, this area is filled with street stalls and becomes one giant and extremely tasty food bazaar. Pick and choose from street grills or the finest Chinese restaurants; this will be your opportunity to go wild and try all those dishes you’ve never even heard of, but after this experience you’ll never forget them! With a belly full of Bangkok treats, continue on this Bangkok food tour towards Talat Pak Khlong, the largest wholesale flower and vegetable market in Bangkok, an area rich in colour and vitality, and the perfect spot to take some bright Bangkok photos. The tour will finish in this area, which you're free to continue exploring, or your local guide will be happy to assist you in finding a taxi for you back to your accommodation. This tour is not only an opportunity to sample all the yummy delights that Chinatown has to offer, although it is a serious pro! It’s all that food, plus history, culture, and local life. You couldn’t pack any more into this tour if you tried!

Our guide Sugar was awesome, funny, attentive. We booked the tour one day in advance and were the only ones on the tour. We were pleasantly surprised, that the street food was included in the price. He even picked vegetarian options for us since we don't eat meat. We toured large parts of the city during the night, including a short boat trip. The road was a bit bumpy sometimes but Sugar was very carefully when crossing streets and making sure we did not get lost. The whole 3 hours were used up, we even took a bit longer since we arived a bit early. Strongly recommend, one of the highlight on our Bangkok trip.

The entire tour was memorable! Our guides, Sugar and Scott , were both very friendly, fun and knowledgeable. They made us feel welcome and at ease on our bikes. We tasted some delicious local food which is impossible to find for new travelers and this was a perfect way to see the city!

Great way to get an overview of the city’s main sights with a guide who really knows her stuff..as well as eat some great street food of course
