What you’ll do

Exploring a new city should never feel intimidating, and with one of our local Bangkok hosts by your side, it won’t. In 3 hours you’ll explore a pocket of the city which will help you get a sense of the ins and out of things work here.

Bangkok is dizzying even for the locals, so your host will help you slow down the pace as you get to grips with navigating, how to hail a tuk-tuk (and not get ripped off) and where the best spots to eat and drink are.

No one likes looking or feeling like a lost tourist on their first trip to a new city, so ask your host any questions you have about this metropolis, and get the low down on where to visit, and which tourist traps to avoid. Your host will give you their local insights into city life and what to do while you’re here so you can kickstart your trip and say “Sawadee ka” to Bangkok!

  • Choose your pace - a casual stroll or grand tour of Bangkok's inner city and its surrounds

  • Take the experience at whatever pace suits you - a casual stroll pausing to cool down with a drink, or squeezing in as much as possible

  • Get a taste of Bangkok through the eyes of your host, and get to hear the briefest of histories, safety tips and general know how

BANGKOK, KICKSTART YOUR TRIP TO BANGKOKZarut

Really Great Intro to Bangkok

Zarut spoke exceptionally good English and provided a great little intro to Bangkok. Took us to some markets and then helped us get some orientation in the city more generally. A few good stories to tell us too as we went around. Many thanks.
