What you'll do
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!
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.

Zarut was personable and very knowledgeable about his way around and the history and other information about Bangkok, that we wouldn’t have known on our own. He gave us a preview of the day’s plan and have considered our interests , expectations and our time frame. We experienced a daily commute of a local in the city which was a good experience. He took us to the tourist attractions that we requested. He shared a lot of information with us about his city. He recommended a good restaurant that we ended up having dinner and enjoyed it a lot. Thank you for a great experience!

We really enjoyed our tour of the Grand Palace. It was really nice hearing about the history and learning facts that we would’ve never known otherwise.

Two days private tour at Bangkok with Zarut
We were in Bangkok for 2 days and our option was to be with a guide who made us a personalized tour. Zarut was our guide, we said him which places we wanted to visit and also that we did not want to shop or stop at shopping unless we suggested it. The tour was totally personalized. His suggestion was to try out public transports, which locals use and also eat authentic Thai food. The boat as public transportation was a unique experience, and our view on Bangkok was much more real. We also saved a lot of time, since the traffic can be a great conditioner in this city. Zarut, was not only extremely punctual, but also very available and informed. The food was amazing. He even arranged to accompany us at night to a bar we wanted to know with a fabulous view over Bangkok (Sirocco), of course this part was on our own expensives. Transport and food was all includeed except the entrees in two locations. His ability to enlighten us and even help, made these two days a unique experience. I do recommend Zarut (contact him via inbox) as a touristic guide option in Bangkok.
