Sunset Tuk Tuk Ride through Bangkok

Sunset Tuk Tuk Ride
through Bangkok

A Bangkok institution on three wheels, the exhilaration of riding a tuk tuk is best defined
as a vivacious blast of energy reverberating throughout its streets. Add a sunset,local
food and fabulously illuminated landmarks and it’s a guaranteed success.

WHY THIS TOUR?

No visit to Bangkok is complete without riding Bangkok’s ubiquitous three-wheeled taxi. Named after the sound of its engine powering its recognisable shape through the often manic-looking traffic with ease, riding a tuk tuk takes the element fun to a whole new level.

With Bangkok as its playing ground, the task to set aside ample time to explore all that makes the City of Angels by tuk tuk just adds to the Sanuk factor. A late afternoon / evening exploration of its streets, its landmarks and memorable spots with you, your own tuk tuk and a guide to drive into the sunset to round off a day in true local style.

TRAIL ITINERARY

Sunset Tuk Tuk Ride through Bangkok

16:30 - 21:00

In the late afternoon, an English-speaking guide welcomes you at your booked accommodation in downtown Bangkok before heading out into the city to meet your tuk tuk and its driver. Depending on traffic conditions, the location of your hotel and other factors, the start may include taking other means of public transport to mitigate traffic jams. Once joining with your tuk tuk, it is off riding under the evening sky to see, taste and walk among the capital’s most notable landmarks at night in Old Bangkok. Our first stop is Wat Saket.  Also known as the Golden Mount – because of its gilded Chedi on top – it towers 80 metres high above the ground and provides impressive, panoramic views over the Banglamphu area. It takes a climb of 320 steps to reach the top to admire the historic Rattanakosin Island district, so the perfect spot to see the final sun rays. Following this visit, we head out, by tuk tuk of course, for a delicious dinner at a local restaurant before moving deeper into the heart of one of the world’s busiest districts – Chinatown.

Bangkok’s Chinatown is one of the largest such districts in the world and visitors will find a vibrant, bustling enclave packed with market stalls, meandering narrow alleys, restaurants, temples, and traditional stores that guarantees a beehive of activity, day or night. We end the evening with a walk through Pak Klong Talaad, better known as the Flower Market. The sea of colours of abundant flowers is simply astonishing. We end our tuk tuk trails at the spectacularly lit Wat Pho (outside only), one of Bangkok’s most visited temples. It is one of six temples that are of the highest grade of first-class Royal temples.

Time to head back to your hotel in the heart of Bangkok or connect with the nearest public transportation stop when your booked accommodation lies outside the allocated drop-off area.
