What you'll do
This experience is essential for anyone who is serious about exploring the 'real' Bangkok. Despite having a reputation as an intimidating city, the Local Host will help you feel like you belong. A personalised experience with a Local Host will give you an authentic taste of Thailand's cosmopolitan capital and make the most of your time.
You could start the day with your Local Host taking the Chao Phraya Express Boat to Tha Chang to explore Bangkok’s oldest district, the artificial island of Ko Rattanakosin. Here you will get an introduction to Thailand’s traditions and must-see temples, Wat Phra Kaew and Grand Palace, Wat Pho and Wat Arun.
Finding the best, authentic Thai cuisine can be a challenge so do not hesitate to ask your Local Host for advice and get them to recommend extraordinary & unusual dishes that meet your dietary requirements.
In the afternoon you could decide to move to the area of Saphan Taksin, where you can take advantage of Bangkok’s cheap, high-quality massage parlours. Refresh with a spa treatment or soothe overworked legs with a traditional Thai massage. After freshening up, get a new perspective on Bangkok with cocktails in one of city’s best rooftop bars and get recommendations for dinner at one of the many unique restaurants.
After dinner, consider heading to Bangkok’s nocturnal flower market or enjoy a rowdy live-music show at a bar loved by locals.
This experience is great for all ages.
What to expect
We’ll be in touch within 24 hours after booking to find out more about your personalities and interests so we can assign a like-minded local who can create a bespoke experience for you.
Your Local Host will communicate with you directly to suggest an itinerary and agree a meeting time and place. Your itinerary is flexible, so during the experience you can always change your mind about what you want to do.
Your Local host may also suggest adjustments or new routes if they feel that there is something just around the corner that you may enjoy, or perhaps if the weather affects your itinerary.
Although you will see the main attractions in the area, your Local Host will also help you to discover the places, things and stories that you won’t find in a guidebook and that make the city unique.
