Bangkok by Night: Temples, Markets and Food by Tuk-Tuk

About this activity
After meeting your guide and small group at a central location in Bangkok, hop aboard your tuk-tuk, a fun and commonly used open-air vehicle that easily accommodates two passengers. Your tour takes place after the temperature drops, bypassing heavily trafficked routes as you drive to locations most frequented during the daytime. You will hop on and off the tuk tuk as we explore the city with your guide.

Your guide provides an overview of Thailand’s capital and insights into local life as you take in the beauty of Bangkok by night and explore markets, temples and its food. Stop at famous temples such as Wat Pho to admire its golden pagodas lit up at night, and walk through the famous 24-hour flower market, where vivid colors are in full bloom under the fluorescent lights.

At nightfall, Bangkok comes alive with food vendors, and you’ll stop to sample some of the best food in the city before finishing with a delicious dessert in a mystery stop. Your tuk-tuk tour ends near the Flower Market, and there’s still time to check out the tireless city’s nightlife on your own.

I was staying nowhere near the BTS so had to take a tuk tuk to the meet up point. Driver first took me to the wrong spot and then dropped me at a random BTS station. I received a phone call when I was late (I had given myself 1 1/2 hours to get to a spot 26 minutes away) I was lost with no idea how to get to the meetup point. They called me and I was able to hand the phone over in the BTS and get to where I should be. I was taken to the group at the end of the first spot. I was so glad I was able to still do the tour as I really enjoyed it. The flower market is amazing. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this tour but make sure you know how to get around in the BTS as it is very confusing. Also if you have to take a tuk tuk there show them the Google map which is what I should have done!

The tour was a very thorough tour and We had an opportunity to see many sights. All the Buddha’s and temples were thoroughly described and the purpose behind the structure was was explained. Our tour guides Noon and Dun were very personable and upbeat. I loved the fact that we were able to go to very unique spots where we could sample true Thai life. The flowers were beautiful and the food was amazing. I would advise that it was a considerable amount of walking. I am in decent shape and I was exhausted. It’s not a ride the Tuk Tuk only kind of tour. Also, it’s rain or shine and four us it was raining and that made it uncomfortable. All in all I enjoyed the thoroughness of our tour guides and the tour in general. Thanks so much to our guides and our most gracious driver Som!

Although this is listed as a food tour on Viator, this is in fact a cultural tour with some food experiences provided. We got to sample street food snacks, ate pad thai at THE BEST pad thai restaurant in Bangkok (totally deserved), and had fabulous mango and sticky rice overlooking the 24-hour flower market at the end of the tour. More memorable however was P the tour guide's description of daily life in Bangkok, and stopping at various tourist spots at night without the crowds. Although I thought the tour was very good and the food we ate was excellent, I thought there would be more food stops than there were - didn't help that the tour guide told us (at the end of the night) that this was 'not a food tour.' Okay, I just wished then Viator didn't promote this as a food tour and that you told us earlier in the evening...

It was great seeing the city at night on the tuk tuk. Lek was very enthusiastic and we had a wonderful time! Enjoyed not only the delicious food but also the cultural aspect of the tour!

Viator has never let us down and this was another great event. We were met by Mr P at the appointed MRT station and introduced to about 6 other travellers that formed the group. From there we met with our Tuk Tuk drivers and were given the first of many bottles of water! Being driven around Bangkok in a Tuk Tuk is one of life’s fun experiences and one where we felt very safe and well looked after. We started off by visiting a local night market, understanding why they exist and tasting a sample of the great food on offer. We then went off to the first of several temples. Whilst we couldn’t get into visit the various Buddha’s it was great visiting them in the evening when it was quieter and, marginally, less humid. Half way through the evening we stopped at a fantastic restaurant, huge queues outside but somehow we were taken straight to our tables. My daughter and I had the prawn noodle wrapped in egg, phenomenal! My wife had the vegetarian option as it was the only other choice. We then visited the Palace, could only see the outside but still great, and ended up in the famed flower market which a spectacular riot of colours and smells. There we had our desert of sticky rice and mango, very tasty. Along the way Mr P gave us a very personal insight into Bangkok it’s culture and why Buddhism is so fundamental to their way of life. In summary, this is a great tour if you want to gain a different perspective on the temples and understand the culture of Bangkok and it’s people. Above all Mr P was a wonderful host who could not do enough for us. The Tuk Tuk’s are Great fun way to travel around Bangkok!

Great tour of the city and our guide (Noon) was very knowledgable. It's a great way to see a lot of Bangkok's highlights without fighting big crowds.

A four-hour tour full of action, moving through traffic safely with a fun flair, stopped at local food markets tasting savory treats, clean and appetizing, including a local dessert well worth trying! All the above intermingled with a tour of the Grand Palace Temple and Wat Arun in the evening which was spectacular! Well worth it, make sure you treat yourself to this evening Bangkok Tuk Tuk tour!

I am taking the time to write as I believe feedback is important. I recently booked the Bangkok By Night tour. I was having difficulty figuring out how to get to the venue and reached out online for assistance. Your reply was detailed and I was able to make the trip across town in plenty of time to catch the tour. Thanks! My guide for the night tour was Nett- I cant say enough about her professionalism and positive attitude. She seriously was one of the best guides I have ever experienced and I wanted you all to know how fortunate you are to have her work for your company. She made an effort to know everyone’s name in the group, was clear when presenting facts and information, was humorous, and had a great command of English. She was a pleasure to spend the evening with. She is a great person to have representing your company. There were the extra things along the tour that made it really nice; The cold water, the photo stops, the chilled towels, ice cream, flowers, singing Tuk-Tuk drivers- a well thought out tour with ‘perks’. I will definitely recommend this tour and specifically Nett to friends and family coming to Thailand in the future. Respectfully, CP

Was well organized. Saw a lot. Tour guide was very nice. Couldn't always understand or hear her. She rode in our Tuk Tuk for awhile which really made it uncomfortable. There is only room for 2 adults. They feed you well on this tour so make sure you are hungry. Overall, very nice. You have to find your own way to the meeting point, but the Tuk Tuk will take you back to your hotel.

Did this your on our first night in Bangkok and I wasn’t disappointed. Our tour guide Lek was awesome! Riding around the city on tuk tuks was super fun!! I enjoyed seeing the temples at night without all the crowds. Wish all the temples were open but this isn’t the tours fault. Nonetheless it was great to go at night! This tour gives you a good comprehensive billet point your of highlights of the city without overwhelming you. Tour was very organized and flowed nicely! Two thumbs up!!

This excursion was a great mix of food and great sites. Nayla was fun and informative and spoke clear English. The tuk tuk drivers were attentive and they made a great team. We saw a lot, had great food and really enjoyed the experience.

This was a great starter to our holiday in Bangkok. Our guide was excellent, the temples at night provide a different experience from the daytime visits. My daughter and I loved it. Our tuk tuk driver (Mr Seksan) was great!
