My partner and myself did the Bangkok starter tour 2 weeks ago and it was fantastic! Our guide Sunny was very warm, friendly and helpful. She found out what we were interested in and tailored some of the places and information to this. As well as big sites we were able to see and visit different temples, areas and hidden... More

I have been to Bangkok many times and seen all of the sites. This tour lets you see the real Bangkok - from eating in peoples homes to sitting in a Buddhist ceremony. I love Bangkok and this tour made me love it even more.

My friend and I did the Bangkok 360 on our second full day in Bangkok with our guide, M. I have done a lot of tours in a lot of countries (including other tours in Bangkok and in Thailand), and this was by far the best tour I've been on. These guys will show you Bangkok in a way that... More

This tour far exceeded our expectations. We were able to see a side of Bangkok that you normally wouldn't see as a typical tourist. The history we learned was so unexpected. Stopping for snacks along the way at local vendors was a real treat. Our guide M made the whole experience that much better. He was professional, engaging, and fun... More

We had a fantastic time on our one day tour of the city. We saw more of Bangkok than a tourist would see in a week. Micheal and his staff were outstanding guides, taking us all over different parts of the city and on boats, buses, and trains helping us become familiar with the various transportation. We ate lots of... More

Following a visit to Thailand in August 2015, I was sure about doing another tour with Bangkok Vanguards when I decided to visit again -a year and a half later. And like the title of my review says - I don't regret it one bit. I contacted Michael two months before the trip because I was super keen to book... More

Well, all I can say is, awesome. We did the Starters tour today with Mu. It was great. We had high expectations due to the TripAdvisor reviews, and the tour fit the bill. Perfect pace, excellent sights, seeing things we would NEVER have been able to find or appreciate on our own, authentic food, etc. Mu was the perfect guide... More

This experience is like having old friends show you around their home town. Our guide Sonny was great company and has a contagious passion for Bangkok and its community. We saw and tasted so many aspects of Bangkok life, getting around to different parts of town on every means of transport available. This gave me a good understanding of how... More

Staying in Banglamphu

Neighborhood Profile
Banglamphu
While you’ll see skyscrapers in most parts of Bangkok, it’s the gilded roofs of ancient pagodas that adorn the skyline of Banglamphu, the city’s historical and most touristic district. Hordes of tourists flock to this area to tick quite a few must-see attractions off their to-do list, with the Grand Palace being the most spectacular of them all. Banglamphu is also home to Bangkok’s infamous tourist ghetto, centered around Khao San Road. Visit at night to feast on road-side pad thai, cheap beers and if you’re up for it, some dancing fueled by buckets of Thai whiskey.
