Itinerary
Stop At:  
Bangkok Train Station
This walking tour will take you through Bangkok's historic Chinatown, a neighbourhood so rich in sights, sounds, and smells that it could only really be described as an assault on the senses (in a good way!). Taking a stroll through this neighbourhood is one of the best things to do in Bangkok, and with a local to guide you along, you'll never miss a beat. You'll begin this Bangkok Chinatown tour at Bangkok Hua Lamphong Railway Station, it doesn't get any more old-school than this – the station is more than a hundred years old and one of Bangkok's architectural gems. There's plenty of action inside with locals coming and going, but catch it while you can. There are plans to close the station and replace it with a modern terminal in the next few years.
Duration: 10 minutes
Admission Ticket Free
Stop At:  
Temple of the Golden Buddha (Wat Traimit)
Our first stop is Wat Traimit, the Golden Buddha Temple - an incredible sight to behold and one of the can't miss things to do in Bangkok. This stunning temple enshrines the world's largest solid gold seated Buddha from the Sukhothai Era, measuring nearly five metres high and weighing five and a half tonnes. Here your guide will let you in on the local secrets and history behind the Buddha, and the legendary tales that surround the original Buddha that sat there.
Duration: 30 minutes

We'll then head to a market specialising in Chinese religious products and fresh food.

Enthusiastic guide with reasonable English and GSOH. Chinatown was very crowded because of the Chinese New Year, but he guided us through the crowds and made sure we all kept up. The boat trip gave us a chance to view Bangkok from the river, which provided new views and a little fresh air. The food was eaten where there were no other Westerners eating, so we got the local version, restaurant version and street food version. We all went away feeling we had eaten enough for a week, but of course the following day I was dining again. This is Bangkok!

It's a good tour to get around to areas that aren't necessarily touristy places. Having a local guide to show you the way was great - and she introduced me to new street foods I was unaware of. Alot of walking [not recommended for elderly or people that can't walk / stand for about 5 hours]

Not perfectly organized: 1. Started late. 2.The meeting point was neither close to the tour area nor to our hotels ( for the both participants of the tour) and we ended up crossing the traffic of China Town a few times because of that reason.The tour itself was a little boring. We were walking through similar crowded streets in Chinatown. The problem that its hard to find general overview tour in Bangkok city. Pros: The tour was with local nice lady who wanted to tell us a lot about her city. We received valuable new information about Bangkok and its population.

We had the same guide as the tuk tuk tour, with only three of us this time. Again the English language barrier was a bit of a problem. This too was a very interesting tour, and when the rain hit in a big way, our guide raced off to the local 7/11 to buy my wife and I plastic raincoats. She refused to let us pay her for them. Again, a temple or two, one being very impressive with its massive grounds. We walked through some historic market areas, and at nightfall through the flower market. It is just massive, makes the Amsterdam flower market look like a miniature. It is in the form mainly of a street market but goes for many blocks. We then finished up having a Chinese dinner with our guide. Along with the tuk tuk tour it gave us a very good view of older Bangkok and was well worthwhile.

Trek to meeting point was a nightmare as taxi driver had no clue. On arrival the heavens opened and by the time I got out of the taxi I was ankle deep in water. However Our guide Dong was simply amazing, once the rain calmed down we stasrted our tour. Loved the street food and local resturant. China town and flower market were buzzing. Definately great tour in my opinion
