Bites & Sites in the Village of Love
Discover the flavours and spices of Bangkok's 'Village of Love', the historic Bangrak area. Enjoy unique local food tastings whilst learning of how locals live, eat and shop. Ideal for foodies, it is an experience bursting with authentic encounters.
Accompanied by your own English-speaking guide, you will stroll through the streets of Bangrak, soaking up the atmosphere and learning about the history of the area. Enjoy a hand-picked selection of food tastings guaranteed to excite your taste buds accompanied by stories of the local neighbourhood.
Bangrak has a village-like feel to it, and it is famous for its plethora of wonderful food stalls, many of which are family-run. Stop off to try some of the best local snacks in the city, ranging from the traditional to the rather more unusual. The chefs and shop owners are often keen to chat, and so this is a lovely way to gain a deeper insight into day to day life and the importance of food in Thai culture.
Highlights of this tour include sampling Thai cuisine in an exclusive hidden restaurant run by descendant of the royal family, experiencing tastes from the four regions of Thai cuisine, savouring 5-star local flavours in ancient recipes, enjoying an array of herbal drinks in an 80-year-shophouse and attending a fruit class to master the art of shopping for Thai fruits.
We recommend starting the tour at around 9.00-9.30am, in order to make the most of the morning buzz and avoid the heat of the day. The whole tour takes around 3.5-4 hours.
