For those who want to see the REAL Bangkok. Traditional foods, local life,
After being to Bangkok before I have spent a lot of time exploring the wonderful city and fell in love with it the first time I arrived. But my second time in Bangkok I wanted to see the party of the city and the local life, behind the stalls of elephant pants and massages and tourist.
It's easy to find some good street stalls on your own- just wander down pretty much any street and you'll find some- but to find the really best ones you need to know where to go. With Gege he will take you right to them and you will sample some of the best Thai food and street snacks Bangkok has to offer.
Not only does he have impeccable English, he really loves his city and you can really tell in the pride he takes throughout the tour. He will also take you to his secret beauty spots that are hidden all over the city (some only reachable by boat). Not only the spots for tasty treats but to see the heart of Bangkok, far away from the well trodden path. You will experience hidden temples, the best spot to watch sunset over the city, markets where the locals do their shopping, crazily bidding over flowers, shouting orders, eating and laughing.
A true experience in Bangkok is to travel by tuk tuk and in the evening -when the city comes alive- you really feel what an amazing atmosphere this city has.
I had a wonderful time on the tour with Gene, he's a wonderfully entertaining character and he introduced to me another side of Bangkok and Thai life I would never have experienced without.
