Tuk Tuk Tours
Explore Bangkok by the iconic tuk tuk
Discover the famous and the not-so famous
Rattanakosin Island is the historical centre of Bangkok and the home of the city's most famous temples and historical attractions. You will explore this area by tuk tuk and pass many of Bangkok's landmarks.
The Temple of Dawn (or Wat Arun as it is known as in Thai), situated beside the river, is one of Bangkok's most iconic landmarks.
The Temple of the Reclining Buddha (or Wat Pho as it is known as in Thai) is one of Bangkok's most famous temples. and situated in the heart of Rattanakosin and next to The Grand Palace.
Nang Loeng Market is a traditional food market and a lovely community in the heart of Bangkok. Here we will explore the market and pick up a range of snacks to enjoy throughout the morning.
Get around like a local. First we start by taking a local commuter ferry on the San Saeb canal, then explore by tuk tuk and then another ferry to cross the Chao Phraya River.
We will pick up a range of snacks at Nang Loeng market which you will then enjoy throughout the tour. Vegetarian options are available.
We offer a range of add-ons which allow you to turn it from a half day tour to create your own perfect full day in Bangkok: - Visit the Grand Palace - Explore the Thonburi Canals on a long-tail boat - Snack your way to Chinatown
This tour is designed to give the perfect introduction to Bangkok, both from the perspective of the main sights but also getting a little bit offbeat. A good blend between the main temples and local life. We combine 2 temples, with a traditional market, several forms of local transport, and a lot of interesting snacks. Along the way we will pass many of the most famous sights.
The tour starts with your guide picking you up from your hotel or a convenient meeting point. The focus of this tour is using local transport so we adapt the start and pick up method based on your pick up location.
After meeting your guide, you will head towards the Rattanakosin area using the most suitable method. Once you switch to tuk tuk for a few hours. The first main stop is Nang Leong Market, where you will pick up a range of snacks. Next we drive around Rattanakosin, passing many of Bangkok's most famous sites. The tuk tuk will cross to the other side of the river and take you to Wat Arun (The Temple of Dawn), where your guide will show you around. Next we move back to boats as we take the local ferry back across the river for our final stop at Wat Pho (Temple of the Reclining Buddha)
