Why Choose This Experience?
This year has been very different so why not do something different for Halloween!
Let us show you the dark side of Bangkok. Murders, torture, pandemics and ghosts! There will be surprises along the way. Some surprises are good, others are…… best kept a secret!
This is a pop-up tour that we are running to support our guides who have been severely impacted by COVID. Please do support by coming out to explore ;)
About Expique and “Dark Bangkok”
Expique is one of Bangkok’s most innovative tour companies and recently won the TripAdvisor Travellers Choice award for offering The No. 1 Experience in Thailand.
However, these are “dark” and difficult times for the tourism industry and tour guides in Thailand. So dark times call for dramatic actions.
This month Expique has been running weekly drama workshops for our guides to enhance their storytelling and presentation skills. Our goal is to use the current quiet time wisely. Our special Halloween tour “Dark Bangkok” is the result. We hope it will be dramatic enough!
For our “Dark Bangkok” initiative the profits are shared with guides getting 50% of the profits. Please do come and support.
We will meet at Sam Yot MRT station from where we will start the walk. Here you will meet your guides for the night and they will brief you before we set out into the night.
For a sense of mystery we will not disclose the full route in advance but we will be walking towards and around Rattanakosin. This is a walking tour but our vampire tuk tuks will make an appearance and take you for a ride for part of the route.
There will be surprises along the way. Some surprises are good, others are…… best kept a secret!
The tour will finish at our secret Halloween Hideaway in The Flower Market where we will serve drinks and Halloween desserts. 1 drink is included.
Finally, if you are wondering what happens if it rains? Well, don’t all scary stories start with, “It was a wet night, but hiding in the shadows of the full moon was ……” (But we will have ponchos and umbrellas.
