Departure Point

Yan Nawa, Sathon, Bangkok 10120, Thailand

Village of Love Tours will meet at the BTS station "Saphan Taksin" -- at the bottom of the stairs of exit 2. For those not arriving by BTS, this is the exit closest to the main river pier, next to the park. When arriving by boat, follow the covered walkway towards the BTS station and you will find your guide waiting near the bottom of the stairs.

This Bangkok food tour stops at several venues and includes food and drink tastings. At your selected departure time, meet your guide and small group at a central location and set out for the back streets of the Bang Rak district, known for its diverse offerings of local Thai food. Along the way, gain intimate knowledge of the neighborhood’s history, culture, and cuisine from your experienced guide.

Taste curry puffs at a street food vendor; sip Thai iced tea or coffee at the Bang Rak Bazaar; bite into a sampling of tropical fruits at Bangkok’s second-oldest wet market; and try Chinese herbal drinks at a local Chinese grocery, located in a traditional shophouse.

Visit a family-run eatery to share plates of fried and roasted chicken noodles topped with an egg. Then walk to a traditional Thai sweet shop for a tempting dessert platter. Be sure to save some room for som tam (green papaya salad) at an establishment popular with locals, and don’t be shy about tasting larb (minced meat salad)—a northern Thai staple.

Savor the regional flavors of Thai curry at your last stop, a traditional royal Thai restaurant run by descendants of the royal family, before your tour ends.

Please note: Participating venues and menu items may be substituted on any given day.

Another Great Eat and Learn!!
Jon_P

Very well done tour, with great mix of "street" food from vendors, small kitchens in the Bang Rak Market, and excellent local restaurant. Knowledgeable guide described the traditions of each dish, and ingredients. There was considerable local history she presented as well. Evening tour seemed best while market is busiest and most interesting. This is a must do tour; especially fun after having done a cooking class in the AM. This particular tour was a meal's amount of food. Don't eat a late lunch!

Good food tour overall

Bella was a great tour guide. We got to go to places we never would have stopped at on our own and got to try some great authentic Thai food. However, she took pictures at every stop and said pictures would be emailed to us and we never received them. Was really looking forward to the pictures to document what all we got to try.

Great Intro to Thai Food

Tour guide ( Ja Jaa) was informative & easy to understand. We tasted variety of foods...( grilled skewer pork, Thai tea, Thai dessert of sticky rice, noodle dishes, salads, fruits....) There is a bit of walking about. We went places we would not ventured on our own, which was the point of this tour. There were 2 opportunites for restroom on the tour. I would advise to skip breakfast or eat a light breakfast before this tour. Meeting point was easy to find. Tour guide helped us find our way back. Great tour.

We loved our tour. If you are staying near Bangrak and even if you are not, this tour is brilliant. We visited lots of different food places that we had walked right by before. Never again. The tour has opened up a world of dining possibilities.

Very tasty tour.

Overall it's a tour worth doing , we visited many tasty spots that we probably would never find. We had some of the best meals I've ever had in the little places or stalls that are included in this tour. I would give it 5 stars if the guide wouldn't run from one place to another without speaking to the group like she was in a hurry.

Besides the hustle of the streets...
Eduardo C
, Aug 2018
Besides the hustle of the streets, the stand-up joints, tables in the street and more formal sit-down restaurants we got to see the variety of condiments used in making curry paste, visited a sweets business that was created by a a former chef in the Thai royal court, how coffee is made in the streets of Bangkok and drank a very, very good coffee from a plastic bag!... Bella, our guide, and Pat, her aide in training, are obviously at home navigating this multicultural neighborhood. They provided a very enjoyable and unique experience. Some of the places we visited would be very hard if not impossible to find otherwise. This is a brief but very good introduction to the sights, colors, smells and the art of eating in Bangkok.
