The Best Tuk Tuk Tours in Bangkok. Which One To Choose?

Simon Philipp | Published: October 30, 2019

Exploring Bangkok by Tuk Tuk is fun, and the best time to do it is at night when there is less traffic and the temperatures are cooler. Night tours are quickly becoming a very popular activity. Therefore if you are considering a tuk tuk tour why not take one at night!

While we may be a little biased, our awards and rankings point to the fact that we run the best tuk tuk tours in Bangkok. In fact we have 4 different night tuk tuk tours for you to choose from depending on your interest. In this article we will we go through the options to ensure you choose the best night tuk tuk tour for you.


Bangkok Night Lights Tuk Tuk Tour

Exploring Wat Pho at night on a tuk tuk tour

Some of our partners call this “Bangkok by Night: Temples, Markets and Food”. This is our original and award winning cultural tour with dinner.

This year it won the TripAdvisor Travallers’ Choice award as The No.1 Experience in the whole of Thailand!!!!!

This is a great way to explore the city at night. This tour is suited for anyone who wants to get a great introduction to the city and the local culture. For many this provides a great orientation to Bangkok, but we still do host many guests on this tour who have been to Bangkok several times before.

This tour does include dinner (usually at a famous Pad Thai restaurant), plus stops for snacks and dessert. However, we ourselves never call it a food tour.

  • Ideal Time: 7pm – 11pm (4 hours)
  • Interest: Learning about Thai culture and local life
  • Food Style: Simple classic
  • Number of Food Stops: 1 for dinner + snacks + dessert
  • Suitable for Vegetarians / Dietary restrictions: Yes
  • Involves Walking: Short walks
  • Suitable for Children: Yes (on private tours)
  • Available as join in group or private tour

Evening Food & Tuk Tuk Adventure

This tour is food focused and specifically focused on street food around Bangkok. We consider this suitable for semi-adventurous eaters, but the reality is everyone has a different sense of adventurous. As examples you may get to try an insect but we would not go as far as pig brain soup! You will try a lot of local food and will not go hungry on this tour!

  • Ideal Time: 6pm – 10pm (4 hours)
  • Interest: Learning about Thai food
  • Food Style: Semi-adventurous street food
  • Number of Food Stops: 5
  • Suitable for Vegetarians / Dietary restrictions: No
  • Involves Walking: Limited
  • Suitable for Children: No
  • Available as join in group or private tour

Family Canal & Tuk Tuk Adventure

This tour is designed for families. Starting ealier and with more activities to keep the little ones engaged. Every family is different and we will try and adapt as much as possible to the ages of the kids and their interests. Activities include mask painting and climbing up the Golden Mount.

  • Ideal Time: 3pm – 8pm (5 hours). It can also be arranged in the morning.
  • Interest: Bangkok for kids
  • Food Style: Flexible depending on family
  • Number of Food Stops: 1 + snacks
  • Suitable for Vegetarians / Dietary restrictions: Yes
  • Involves Walking: Short walks
  • Suitable for Children: Yes
  • Only available as a private tour: And we will customise it

Bangkok’s Midnight Markets by Tuk Tuk

This tour is designed to open your eyes to the lives of many in the city who work throughout the night. Given the fact it is late we do not include food or drink but allow you to stop depending on how you feel. If you are hungry it could well turn into a late night market and food adventure.

Personally, we really love this tour as it is a real real experience, we just wish we could convince more people to do a tour at 2am!

  • Ideal Time: 10pm – 2am (4 hours)
  • Interest: The real Bangkok at night
  • Food Style: Flexible depending on hunger level
  • Number of Food Stops: Flexible depending on hunger level
