    Chinatown - Bangkok
    Stop: 4 hours
    Our four-hour journey weaves through the backstreets and alleys of Old Bangkok to small street vendors and eateries that have been serving hungry locals for years. It’s a tour that’s been carefully curated by a Bangkok chef who grew up in the district and visits many of the spots his father took him to decades ago. We’ve helped thousands of guests discover the real food of Bangkok in places they’d simply never find alone. It’s not just about the food though. It’s about Bangkok eating culture, its history and, most importantly, the people behind the food who have dedicated their lives to cooking on the street. There’s no doubt about it – you’ll most certainly eat well on this small-group tour that’s limited to just eight exclusive guests. While we don’t want to spoil the surprises, some highlights of this 16+ taster menu include working chopsticks over crispy chive dumplings with nam jim jaew sauce, mopping up rich satay sauce with charcoal-grilled coconut chicken skewers and slurping up workers’ noodles in slow-cooked pork broth. Drooling? We hope so. There's a reason we've got the highest rated Bangkok food tour on TripAdvisor. ✔️Suitable for lactose free ✘ Unsuitable for gluten intolerant ✘ Pork is unavoidable on the tour ✘ Unsuitable for vegetarians (try our lunch tour instead)

We had a great tour with Fon. She was friendly and informative and shared some insights into local life in Bangkok that we would otherwise not have known. It was great to learn a bit about the history of the area and try a variety of foods and to see the Chinese influence on Thai food and vice versa. There was a lot of food so I would recommend not eating everything you are given to try- especially early in the tour!

If you love food, this is a tour for you. Khun Tom was our tour guide (with Khun Fon shadowing) on this evening of great food and conversation. Watching Chinatown change from a mundane business street to a bustling street food mecca is a sight to behold. We ate so many different foods, some of which we would have never even ventured to try by ourselves. It is true; go hungry as you will eat your way through Chinatown! The wonder of ambling through alleys to find hidden food treasures is worth the time. Learning from Khun Tom and Fon about food, culture, and history through this entire feast for the taste buds made this experience so worthwhile. You will truly appreciate what street food means to Thai culture. We would not hesitate to book another food tour with them!

The tour guide and his assistant we’re very Easy to understand and knowledgeable. It was clear to see they had spent a lot of time researching the locations we visited. The locations offered a great sampling of a variety of dishes and specialties. The tour included a lot more food than anticipated I would recommend eating very small portions as you will fill up. I would suggest perhaps separate tours for families. We had a family with us and the guys did an excellent job of trying to manage rather unruly children.

What an amazing way to spend an evening in China Town! This tour isn’t cheap, but it’s amazing value for money- this is a four hour tour with queue jump at each busy stall meaning there was no unnecessary waiting around and we got to experience a huge range of dishes and flavours.
I would recommend this tour to anyone who wants to explore the variety of food that Bangkok has to offer.
I’ll be returning for the soy sauce ice cream!!

We did the Bangkok Backstreets food tour in Chinatown and we can’t rave enough about what an amazing experience it was. First off, just don’t eat at all that day, I think you try a total of 14 things with a mix of juices and desserts sprinkled throughout but I think by stall 7 we were so full we couldn’t imagine eating more but we did of course because you want to try everything. The highlights for us were the chicken satay with peanut sauce, the green curry and the soy sauce ice cream (the ice cream sounds so weird but was delightful). This tour gets you out of your comfort zone as you experience foods that might be too intimidating to try on your own. There is no pressure to try everything but you really want to because the guides make it so approachable by explaining the history of the food and how it came to find its place in Chinatown and how it should be eaten and the different sauces and extras that go with the food traditionally. The only thing we didn’t try is the insect stall, but the other in our group all partook in it! We also got to explore the bustling alleyways of Chinatown that I can’t imagine finding on our own and listening to the rich history found there. The guides and everyone in our group all wore masks and when we were eating our guides found us little tables out of the way that made you feel safe and comfortable despite the craziness all around us. If you are looking to try the famous Thai street food you hear so much about, don’t hesitate to book now. You will not be disappointed and you will not leave hungry.

As others have mentioned, this is an extensive food tour with only a small group of people and knowledgeable guides. We had Aa and Fit as guides and they were great, constantly asking if we needed water refills, scheduling bathrooms breaks and answering all our questions. Yes, it's pricey for this city, however you get the convenience of hitting multiple spots, some down hidden alley ways and side streets and there are tables and chairs waiting for you at your arrival. We never would have been able to eat this variety in a similar timeframe on our own. We had a total of 16 different dishes, including a drink, over almost 4hrs. Highly recommended.

We met Aww and Fit at the Shanghi Mansion Hotel and started our adventure. There were 16 stops & 20 foods tasted, a great value for the price. Our guides were so knowledgeable and eager to have us understand the food and it's related history to Bangkok's Chinatown. Would highly recommend you book this tour early in your Bangkok stay so you can return to enjoy Chinatown on your own with valuable learned insight.

We went on this tour back in November and it was the best food tour I've ever been on. We would never have found all these amazing places down twisting back alleys on our own. The food was incredible and so diverse. The tour combined the exciting busy main drag with jaunts off into the quiet back streets of Chinatown. Highlights included the Michelin recommended shrimp dumplings, the soy sauce ice cream, and the Tom Yum soup at this fantastic restaurant with four crazy floors and a line around the corner. The great part about the tour was no waiting in lines. The assistant would go ahead of the group and put us on the list and then we would just walk right in when we got there. The main tour guide and the assistant were such lovely people and full of great information. Highly recommend this tour! Come hungry!

An absolutely fabulous tour of the back street stalls around Bangkok's China Town.

You are escorted by a knowledgeable friendly chef guide, sampling 16 amazingly delicious foodie treats.

The 4 hours flew by as we navigated the unlikeliest looking back alleys, that we would have ignored by ourselves.

At the end I was flagging to eat everything...
And a great blend of fiery hot, savoury and sweet dishes.... who knew salty soya sauce flavoured icecream with a sweet soya topping could be so moreish.

The guide made the trip a delight, explaining the intricacies of Thai food, ingredients and the history of the district.

A brilliant tour, one of the best food tours I’ve ever been on! The guide was polite and helpful, and we got to eat so many different specialties that I would have never been able to find on my own. Come with a few belt notches spare as you’ll get fed plenty (although it’s not heavy or all consuming!).

It was a well paced tour, with lots of delicious little stops, and a few surprises too. The guide was knowledgeable and shared some fascinating stories, you can really feel his passion about Thai food and culture. The group was fun and we all had a drink to celebrate after the tour. Kudos to A Chef’s Tour for curating such a diverse itinerary and food choices, I would love to go on another Thailand tour they run, maybe Chiang Mai or Phuket and I saw they do a Bangkok lunch tour too. When India reopens I’ll definitely check this company out again as I see they have tours all over the world!

Highly recommend, go and try it, there is more to Bangkok than pad Thai!

Thanks A Chefs Tour for an amazing evening I won’t forget!
