Tuk Tuk Tours
Explore Bangkok by the iconic tuk tuk
This tour is nicknamed: "The morning pork walk"
You may be surprised by the range of food the average local eats for breakfast and many dishes are eaten for breakfast, lunch or dinner. On this tour we will introduce several dishes that are more traditional for breakfast.
This tour include 4 sit-down breakfast stops, including shops that have been serving for over 60 years and 2 Michelin Guide recommendations. More importantly, many of our office staff live or grew up in this area, and these are personal favourites.
As we walk we will stop to pick up additional snacks from local vendors along the street. These will be the most typical items that are sold in the morning and of course there will be an opportunity for a morning coffee or Thai tea.
This tour combines walking and local transport. We will stop for food in 3 main areas (Bangrak, Thanon Chan and St Louis). Within these areas we walk, but between these areas we will take short rides on local transport including a local bus and a "songteow".
By the end of the tour you should be very full! For many locals a typical breakfast is a plate of rice with omelette, curry or meat on top. Our final stop on the tour will be of this nature, so will be sure to fill you if you still had space available! Ready for the day ahead?
This is a tour with a unique twist as it does not focus on the most famous Thai dishes that usually come to mind. Instead it focuses on breakfast dishes that are popular with locals in Bangkok among locals, whether they be due to traditions, convenience, or purely for the purpose of filling you up for the day ahead.
Many of the most famous breakfast dishes actually have Chinese origins, but adapted with Thai versions. Therefore this tour is more of a Thai-Chinese breakfast food tour. Many of dishes are pork based.
The tour meets at Saphan Taksin BTS Station from where we will explore the area of Bangrak.
We will start with a walk, a local coffee and one of the most popular breakfast items there is "Grilled Pork (moo ping) with sticky rice"
Next it's time to stop at a famous porridge (Jok) stop for our first sit down breakfast
The tour continues by taking a local bus for a 5 minute ride to the neighbouring district of Yannawa and specifically Charoen Krung and Thanon Chan Roads. Here we will stop at 2 more locations for Dim Sum and for a famous noodle soup
The final area the tour will visit is a road called St Louis, and this is a 5 minute ride by a local "songteow" (red van). Here there will be lots of snacks as we walk and one final sit-down stop to ensure you are full for the day ahead. This final stop may vary depending on the day but a typical example would be stewed pork leg on rice.
At the end of the tour our guide will help you get back to the BTS (Skytrain) or whether you are going next.

Dietary Requirements: This is a food tour and not suitable for vegetarians or people with specific dietary requirements. Many dishes are pork based. While we always do our best to accommodate, many of the stops are based around single dishes where there is not always a suitable substitute. Many of the dishes are pork based and the selected shops have no alternative options. Therefore, we cannot guarantee the same experience for people with dietary requirements.
Getting to the meeting point: Please allow plenty of time and aim to arrive 15 minutes early. We suggest you take public transport (BTS Skytrain) and avoid taxi where possible. The traffic can be bad, especially in the morning. If you have any issues please call us.
Is the tour suitable for children? There is no minimum age for this tour. This is a breakfast tour and most of the dishes are not spicy so can be eaten by children. However, we acknowledge some children are more adventurous eaters than others so we expect the parents to make the judgement as to whether a food tour is suitable. For families with small children we encourage a private version so we can adapt
There is walking on this tour: There is approximately 2km of walking during this tour so people with mobility issues may find it difficult.
Minimum numbers and individual customers: This tour requires a minimum 2 people to run it. We do allow individuals to book, but there is a possibility the tour will not run if there is only 1 guest.
Private Tours and Large Groups: If you have specific requirements or are a group of 6 or more people we suggest you contact us about a private tour. For private tours we can vary the start time between 6am and 10am and also include pickup. For private tours we can take up to 20 people. However, the larger the group the more restricted to food options as many street food vendors can only cater for small numbers at a time.
Food Safety: We take food safety very seriously and all the places that we eat at we believe are of an acceptable standard and cleanliness to take guests to, but it is impossible to 100% rule out any risk of food poisoning. Our food safety record is very good and we have found it more likely a customer will get sick from food prior to our tour than during it.
Changes to Itinerary: The food stops we eat at may vary from day to day depending on what's open.
If it rains we have more fun: We run the tour throughout the year and have never had to cancel a tour due to rain. If it rains we have ponchos and umbrellas. You may get a little wet but if you bring a positive attitude you may discover it is even more memorable.
