What you'll do
Join a like-minded Local Host to explore the city and see its most famous attractions and immerse yourself in Bangkok’s unique culture, as well as discovering the hidden local spots you’d never have found in a guidebook!
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’ll 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, most authentic Thai cuisine can be a challenge, so your Local Host will help recommend extraordinary and unusual dishes that meet your dietary requirements and take you to the spots where locals really eat.
In the afternoon you could decide to move to the area of Saphan Taksin, or explore a local neighbourhood with your local by your side to navigate off the tourist trail.
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, head to one of Bangkok’s night markets or explore an area (in)famous for its nightlife!
What to expect
We’ll be in touch within 24 hours after booking to find out more about your personality 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.
How this benefits you
With a Local by your side, you’ll be able to go beyond the superficial and connect with Bangkok and its people, getting to know what truly makes the city unique.
Get relevant advice to help you save time and money during the rest of your trip; using local insight you’ll be able to get around, skip tourist pitfalls and experience life like a local.
See the main attractions with the benefit of local knowledge, like the best times to avoid the crowds, but also explore off-the-beaten path areas where the Locals really live.
Our Local Hosts can all speak English, but many also speak Thai, Indonesian, Laos and many other languages so that can connect with you culturally as well as with your personality.
