If 8 or more people we will upgrade you to a private tour for free. Otherwise 2000THB per group to upgrade to private.

For private tours, the experience can be customised and price will vary. An example of customisation would be to remove the dinner option and shorten the tour.

 


The Concept:

If you are looking for a Christmas to remember why not combine exploring Bangkok with the festive spirit.

This is an adapted version of our award winning Bangkok Night Lights Tuk Tuk Tour. Our tuk tuks will be decorated for Xmas and driven by Santa on (Dec 24/25). We will stop for snacks at some of Santa's favourite street vendors. You will have a special festive dinner in the flower market. We will add some extra quirkiness and special surprises!!!! This is probably the most unique Xmas experience in Bangkok.


The Plan:

Upon arrival at Krung Thonburi BTS Station you will meet your guide (also known as Santa's Little Helper) and the rest of your merry group - at least we hope you will all be happy and smiling. After a short introduction we will walk to find our team of Santa's (on Dec 24/24 only) and their special Xmas Tuk Tuks. Then it's time to explore.

The first stop will be Lhong 1919 where you will be treated to a welcome drink. After that we will drive to Tha Din Daeng where we will seek out some of Santa's favourite appetisers (street food style).

Don't eat too much yet! Next stop we will visit a local temple that is beautifully lit up at night - maybe even more beautiful than our festive tuk tuks!!!! After a quick stop it is off to The Flower Market.

The Flower Market is the location for tonight's feast and even a cheeky drink. We will have a leisurely dinner here combining Thai and Western options and a few Festive surprises - but please don't expect a full roast turkey.

After dinner we will have a quick drive around Rattanakosin and see a few more of the sights at night.

The order may change depending on the start time of the tour.

This is a Christmas Experience:Expique is a tour company and our aim is to create a truly unique Xmas experience. We are not a restaurant or 5 star hotel so difficult to compare the meal and price to all the other Xmas dinners available. For dinner on December 24 what we aim for is a unique experience with great food. The whole experience is comparable in price to many 5 star hotel buffets!

Getting to the meeting point: Please allow plenty of time and aim to arrive 15 minutes early. The traffic can be bad, especially in the evening, and we suggest you take public transport and avoid taxi where possible. If you have any issues please call us. After the tour Santa has a lot of presents to deliver so please help ensure he sticks to schedule.

Dietary requirements: This tour is suitable for vegetarians, halal, gluten free and other dietary requirements. We also have food suitable for reindeer!

Minimum Age: There is no minimum age, but for families with young kids we recommend the earlier start times. For families we also have a festive version of our Family Canal and Tuk Tuk Adventure.

Small amounts of walking are required: The tour also includes walks through markets and temples. It is not suitable for people with wheelchairs. Please contact us if you have difficulty walking and we can advise you on the suitability.

If it rains it is more fun: It is unlikely through in December!

And if it snows: It is a miracle!

Travel by Tuk Tuk:

  • - The main mode of transport is tuk tuk. Tuk tuks are small fun vehicles that are open air (just like Santa's sleigh). Our tuk tuks are gas powered and not reindeer powered so some people do find them noisy, hot and open to traffic fumes.
  • - This tour is at night when the temperature is lower and the tour has been designed to avoid traffic. We did try to get special flying tuk tuks to imitate Santa's sleigh but found too much bureaucracy in getting a license.
  • - Several of our tuk tuks now have transparent roofs. However, we cannot guarantee every tuk tuk will have such a roof. Sometimes the roofs get covered in snow anyway!.
  • - Normally there will be 2 people per tuk tuk, However, when odd number of passengers there may be 3 people per tuk tuk. Santa is actually used to squeezing 7 elves and 1 billion presents in the back!
