      The best private Bangkok food tours & experiences

      Bangkok locals don’t eat to live; they live to eat. Thailand has a reverence for cuisine that’s more evident in its capital city than anywhere else in the country. Food can be found, quite literally, everywhere: in restaurants and markets, colossal food courts, on the streets, and even floating on the water. As Thai cuisine’s fame has peaked and the city’s best restaurants compete on an international stage, fine dining establishments and world-renowned eateries are almost as prevalent as humble local haunts. But on our food tours in Bangkok, no matter where you eat, it will be startlingly clear why Thailand is the Southeast Asian capital of cuisine.

      City Unscripted food tours in Bangkok are anything but bland. Local palates have become accustomed to sweet, savory, spicy and herbaceous flavors – not separately, but perfectly balanced in a single aromatic dish. The characteristics of Thai cuisine aren’t modern. As early is the 13th century, the heart of this food – meat and seafood combined with vegetables, herbs, and spices and served with rice – had already been established. The food scene in Bangkok today remains a perfect reflection of Thai culture, and our food tours with local guides can paint any traveler a profound picture of Thailand’s heritage.

      The epicenter of street food

      Bangkok is among the world’s greatest cities for street food, and some of the best restaurants in the city aren’t restaurants at all! On our private food tours in Bangkok, you can find everything from quick snacks to entire multi-course meals right in the city streets, 24 hours a day. In fact, the line between a sit-down dinner and street food can be blurred. From bowls of piping hot noodles slurped down on the sidewalk to grilled meats, rice and papaya salad tucked into at rickety plastic tables, eating street food in all its forms is a must in the Southeast Asian capital of cuisine.

      City Unscripted food tours in Bangkok don’t end when the sun sets – in many cases, they’re just beginning. The city is known for its electrifying nightlife, and the market scene is just as invigorating as late-night restaurants, bars, and clubs. Bangkok’s iconic night markets come in all shapes and sizes, spread out in most areas of the city, and offering night owls a diverse range of fantastic food and shopping opportunities. Let your local insider teach you the art of bargaining for your bites – and why not grab a beer or cocktail at one of the cheap bars? On our Bangkok food tours, the night is always young.

        I would recommend local host Ping to anyone visiting Chinatown. I was reluctant to go on my own due to dietary restrictions, but Ping was very accommodating and up for the challenge. We did a food/night tour and I got to sample many delicious dishes. Afterwards, Ping suggested we go to the Loy Krathong festival that was occurring the same night. She helped me buy and offering that was placed in the river. Ping really goes the extra mile as she wants her guests to have a memorable experience. Thanks, Ping, for such a fun night!

        Had a brilliant time in Bangkok with our lovely guide Sopa. She was very flexible and accommodating to what we wanted to see and do and when we didn’t know she stepped in and showed us something we didn’t expect. Not to mention making sure we didn’t get overcharged by taxis etc! Would highly recommend.

        As we moved along information about the foods and shops at a very nice pace. Introduction to the temple and all the China town side topics were well informed. Her English was very good and accommodating to our needs. It was fun to talk about stuff and she managed the transportation well. It was touching to say goodbye.
