You will be picked up at 08:30. Drive through the old town of Bangkok to City Hall where this Bangkok street food tour begins! Before sampling the first bite, stop at Wat Suthat, one of the oldest and largest Buddhist temples in Bangkok. Then make a quick photo stop at the Giant Swing, located at the front of the temple.
After that it is time to start the Bangkok culinary walking tour. Wander down quiet side streets to a small, historic coffee shop for a cup of ‘kafae boran’, the old-style Thai coffee. Venture onwards to a small stall making ‘khanom thua paep’ and sample this unique rice crepe mixed with mung bean. Then, just a few steps away, continue to another local stall to sample ‘gui chaii’, a dumpling stuffed with various vegetables like bean sprouts and spinach.
Walk a bit further to the Chinese Chao Phor Suea Shrine and admire its unique tiger god image. Then it’s back on the food trail with a visit to a coconut ice cream shop. Located in a heritage neighbourhood, the small shop has been selling this dessert for generations. Hear about the family’s background while enjoying the sweet, creamy ice cream.
More food awaits! Venture to a small market and browse the stalls selling fresh seafood, fruits, spices and more. Learn about the local market culture and discover the uses for some of the more exotic ingredients on sale.
After this tasty experience, walk through the neighbourhood to discover a Buddha statue manufacturer. Witness the process of making the statues and see the various sculptures and images for sale.
