Amazing tour with Pam. A part of Bangkok we would not have enjoyed or understood without our guide's expertise. We saw the Golden Buddha, Chinese school, flower market. Drank tea, soup, ate tempura, pad Thai and a few others. Sites first, with food/drink combined as opposed to all food. Pam was insightful, patient, and willing to answer all questions. A... More

Highly recommend the tour! Our guide Pat was very knowledgable, friendly and professional. The temples were very beautiful and it was interesting to see the city from the river. Great to learn a little and see a lot. Lots of good photo opportunities. It was hot. Good to have shoes that are easy to put on and off for temple... More

We had just one day in Bangkok so we took the River and Temples tour and were very happy we did. Our tour guide Pat was wonderful - heartfelt, warm, caring and very knowledgeable of Thai history. The best part of the tour was surely the river cruise - just a little note beyond Pat's reach I think microphone would... More

We booked the half day Tuk Tuk tour that covered the golden mountain, flower market, Indian market, Wat Pho and a number of other sights. Our tour guide Tung was great, I hope I'm getting her name right. She was super knowledgeable and so friendly. It was just my boyfriend and I on the tour so it was like having... More

We had the absolute best time. After starting with a booking mishap from signing up late the night before Gigi fixed everything and led us on exactly the tour we were looking for. She had amazing grasp of the history and culture and dove deeper than I ever could have expected. Very easy to follow both in language and walking... More

Rode around going through tight alleyways and busy streets looking at Bangkok and all its majesty. Had a freaking blast. I think our tour guide's name was Noi he was cool.

What a morning trip! One, our guide was fantastic! It was great fun and informative, visiting forts, markets, the golden mountain. Tuk Tuks are a bit of our thing and combining a tour of Bangkok with a knowledgable lady on our favourite transport added up to an excellent trip. Her knowledge when we visited the reclining Buddha was impressive and... More

Staying in Banglamphu

Neighbourhood 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.
