Adventure through Bangkok

Time to hit the road and explore the vastness of Bangkok’s culinary landscape…on the back of a motorcycle!

WHY THIS TOUR?

Hues and flavours pour out of every corner when exploring Bangkok – it is that eclectic mix of its recognisable honking and street food that forms the core of its city life. The Thai capital’s enigmatic attractions is not only limited to the glistering temples and awe-inspiring sights beyond the city borders.

Defined as the 4th capital after the ancient Kingdom of Siam turned its vision towards its ubiquitous East-Meets-West atmosphere, Krung Thep (as it is officially is named in Thai) followed steadily in its path. The omnipresence of food and finding safe havens to dig in the culinary culture has resulted in delivering an evening of sheer pillion riding joy on the back of a motorcycle and mingle with the locals to dine the evening away.

TRAIL ITINERARY

A Motorbike Market Adventure through Bangkok

18:00 - 22:30

Meet your local motor cycle driver and English speaking guide in front of the Samyan MRT Station at Exit number 2 (transfers from your hotel to the MRT station is not included). The excitement commences from the moment you hop on the back of our skilled motor cycle drivers who effortlessly navigate through traffic deep in the heart of Bangkok’s local food galore. Accompanied by your guide, the evening will turn into a festivity from beginning until the very end with sampling local delicacies at 5 different spots. It comes as no surprise that Bangkok’s street food is rated among the finest worldwide and forms the spot where Thais commonly hang out and share a meal.

Still slaloming through traffic as if it is the most normal thing in the world, we move onward to the Talad Rod Fai, an institution in Thailand when it comes to finding vintage stuff, antiquities and, of course, more food. An award winning spot for photographers, the market gains its name from being positioned at an abandoned railway section (Rod Fai means Train) and a popular browse and shop-until-you-drop place for Bangkokians. It is here where we hit a local rooftop bar with stunning night views over the plethora of coloured stalls that brighten up the night. When still not enough in finding something through the incredible array of collectables and memorabilia, do this before we make our way back by motorcycle to our starting point at Samyan’s MRT Station. An example of bringing visitors even closer to the thriving lifestyle of those calling the Thai capital their home and do not want to follow in the footsteps of the common tourist.
