What To Expect

This walking tour will take you through Bangkok's historic Chinatown, a neighbourhood 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 neighbourhood is one of the best things to do in Bangkok, and with a local to guide you along, you'll never miss a beat.

You'll begin this Bangkok Chinatown tour at Bangkok Hua Lamphong Railway Station, it doesn't get any more old-school than this – the station is more than a hundred years old and one of Bangkok's architectural gems. There's plenty of action inside with locals coming and going, but catch it while you can. There are plans to close the station and replace it with a modern terminal in the next few years.

10 minutes • Admission Ticket Free

Temple of the Golden Buddha (Wat Traimit)
Our first stop is Wat Traimit, the Golden Buddha Temple - an incredible sight to behold and one of the can't miss things to do in Bangkok. This stunning temple enshrines the world's largest solid gold seated Buddha from the Sukhothai Era, measuring nearly five metres 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.

30 minutes • Admission Ticket Included

Chinatown - Bangkok
We'll then head to a market specialising in Chinese religious products and fresh food. At night, this particular area is filled with street stalls and becomes one giant and extremely tasty food bazaar. This will be your opportunity to go wild and try dishes you've never even heard of. But trust us, after this experience you'll never forget them!

A totally different side of Bangkok

Many big cities around the world have a Chinatown, but Bangkok’s Chinatown can be an overwhelming experience. This tour helps you to really understand the neighborhood and its history. My guide “A” showed me places I never would have explored on my own and provided plenty of background information on what I was seeing. As I was the only one on the tour that day, he even took pictures of me whenever I needed. The food was excellent and the view at the rooftop bar was amazing. I would definitely recommend this tour if you’re visiting Bangkok, and if “A” is your guide you’ll be in good hands.
An Immersive Experience Diving Through Chinatown
Andrew C, 23-11-2019
Bangkok's Chinatown is a can't miss destination while visiting the city, and while solo explorable, so many things would go unseen. That's where this tour and the wonderful guide 'A' steps in. This tour took us through alleys, into the backstreets to explore temples, neighborhoods, and of course fantastic food. I cannot recommend this tour enough as it was a high point of my trip to Bangkok
Had the best time

Nai was absolutely amazing, energetic and tailored the tour and the types of foods to me. He’s full of knowledge of his city and definitely made the tour so much fun. 10/10!
Amazing experience with Sasha

Wuttsup y’all, we booked a Chinatown food tour through our travel agent. We weren’t sure what to expect (honestly wasn’t expecting much). We had bad instructions, and showed up 30 min late to the tour. We were fortunate the tour guide (Sasha) waited for us. She called the tour agency, got my number, and found us =) The tour started at the Chinatown rail station and worked its way through Chinatown. We stopped along food stalls that were more for “locals” which was my favorite part. We walked through the vendor only streets, samples a bunch of great food, and received a history lesson at the same time. The tour ended at a cool rooftop bar, and Sasha hung out with us the whole time. Overall great experience, exceeded our expectations and we’d recommend it to anyone (you get a BARGAIN for what you pay).
Amazing tour and tour guide

Apple was an amazing tour guide. She really made us feel comfortable, answered every question we had, exposed us to more culture than we would’ve ever experienced on our own. She was so sweet and overall, amazing company. We felt safe everywhere we went, especially when trying street food. She was able to accommodate our allergies when showing us around. Highly would recommend!
Good for history but not vegetarian food
Travelqueenss, 01-01-2023
Decent tour and guide was knowledgeable on the temple and area. She was great at explaining a lot of the Chinese and Thailand history.

The only drawback was we are vegetarian and while I confirmed if the tour was suitable for vegetarians, i did not expect to eat 5 deserts!
I wish they did a variety- the coffee shop was great with good toast and great coffee.
