This night tour won the TripAdvisor Traveller’s Choice Award and for good reason. Exploring at night and by the iconic tuk tuk is a great way to discover Bangkok and the local culture.

Explore Bangkok by tuk tuk passing many of the iconic sites as you tour at night. This 4-hour tour loops along the Chao Phraya River, stopping at several temples and markets. See temples such as Wat Pho illuminated at night, enjoy dinner and a dessert at a mystery stop!

This is considered a cultural tour with food, and it provides a great introduction to Bangkok and the local culture. However, it should not be considered an in-depth food tour.

In Brief

Bangkok, Thailand
4 hours
Important InfoInfo
After meeting your guide and small group at a central location in Bangkok, hop aboard your tuk-tuk, a fun and commonly used open-air vehicle that easily accommodates two passengers. Your tour takes place after the temperature drops, bypassing heavily trafficked routes as you drive to locations most frequented during the daytime. You will hop on and off the tuk tuk as we explore the city with your guide.

Your guide provides an overview of Thailand’s capital and insights into local life as you take in the beauty of Bangkok by night and explore markets, temples and its food. Stop at famous temples such as Wat Pho to admire its golden pagodas lit up at night, and walk through the famous 24-hour flower market, where vivid colors are in full bloom under the fluorescent lights.

At nightfall, Bangkok comes alive with food vendors, and you’ll stop to sample some of the best food in the city before finishing with a delicious dessert in a mystery stop. Your tuk-tuk tour ends near the Flower Market, and there’s still time to check out the tireless city’s nightlife on your own.

Definitely worth doing, tour guide was very knowledgeable and entertaining. Tuktuks were a fun way to get around, Pad Thai meal and secret dessert destination were fab! A great way to spend the evening

I signed up to do this tour on my first night in Bangkok. I have done a few other Viator tours in other countries but this has been my favorite so far. My guide was awesome. She was so much fun and very friendly and she immediately made me feel comfortable and safe (important when you a girl travelling alone.) I had no problem getting to the meetup spot from my hotel and the whole night was such a blast and a great introduction to Thailand. It made me super excited for the rest of my trip. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone considering signing up for it.

We bookee thiw tour for our first night in Bangkok and it was the PERFECT introduction to the City. Pe, our guide was knowledgeable, caring and attentive to all of our needs, and also kept the tour moving. The TukTuk drivers were great moving trhough traffic safely. Great dinner at a well-known Pad Thai place, and the Temples we visited were magnificent lit up at night. We went back to a few places the next day to see some of the sites closed at night, but this was just a great tour. HIGHLY Recommend for first time visitors of those folks with a short stay in the City.

I was travelling solo and arrived at the meeting point way too early so the guides were kind enough to let me join the earlier group, which consisted of 3 tuk tuks. I was lucky enough to travel with the guide. The night, the driver's, our guide and the others in the group were so much fun. It was such an awesome way to see and experience Bangkok. Loved whizzing around the city at night, the food and learning about the temples, markets and places we went. Highly recommend.

Lots of fun, missed the day time crowds in the cooler evening. Combination of food experiences, seeing the main tourist sites all with a knowledgeable, experienced and humorous guide (Tony). You can gauge from the tour which sites you might want to visit in the daytime to get internal access.

We took this tour as a friend of mine did it when they visited. We had a great night exploring some hidden parts of Bangkok. Our guide JoJo was fun and informative, our Tuk Tuk driver was Mr.Tia who was a great driver, would definitely recommend this trip.

Our guide Noon was perfect. She gave us a lot of information about Thai culture and the food tasting was really good. Riding the city in tuk tuk was funny and cool after a very hot day. The private visit of WAT Pho by night was extraordinary. And our driver took us back to our hotel at the end of the tour for no additional charge...what more can you ask 😊

Bangkok by night deserves more than five stars. Our first night in Bangkok we took the tour, and all other tours now look uninteresting because we saw and learned so much on Angkor by Night.. “Noon” was terrific. She had so much enthusiasm for everything it made us enthused about everything on the entire tour. Food on the tour was wonderful and plentiful, more than we could eat. Don’t miss this tour as your first experience in Bangkok. You’ll be glad you did.

This trip is a must! We had 48hrs in Bangkok, and I had booked this for the day/night we arrived. From start to finish our guide Jazz, was amazing, so warm, and welcoming. We had so much fun, it was so well organised. Visiting the markets, trying the food, visiting the flower market, having dinner at the famous Pad Thai restaurant This is a must to experience the authentic parts of Bangkok with a guide in a wonderful Tuk Tuk.

What a great, action packed tour! The guide, Tek, was friendly, knowledgeable and super easy to talk to. Lots of activities on the tour, great selection of different types of snacks, meals and desserts. Lovely little surprise at the end really rounded off the evening perfectly. Was so great to visit the temple at night when it was quiet. Glad the tuk tuk driver dropped me at my hotel at the end of the tour. Would highly recommend this tour, it's well worth it!

I would recommend this tour to anyone who would like to have an amazing experience in Bangkok during the night. Night tours are perfect because the weather is nicer and there is no heavy traffic as you see in Bangkok during the day. it’s great option for solo travelers and couples. The Food and the ride experience are the best part of it. Tour guides are well knowledgeable and very friendly. They are prepared even if it’s rain they help you so you don’t get wet.

This was an awesome tour, our guide was very knowledgeable and showed interest in the information he was presenting. The food we tasted was incredible but my favorite stop was the flower market. It was a great group of guides and tuk tuk drivers and I appreciate the time put in this itinerary.

Pauline was a great guide! Very informative and her English was fantastic! She showed us all the best spots and spoiled us taking us to the best Pad Thai restaurant in the city! I’d definitely recommend this tour as a solo traveller or with others.

Dazzling Tuk Tuks and a humorous guide is an irresistible combination. A visit to Thipsamai to taste their famous Phad Thai was the highlight. Another awesome place was the visit to Wat Pho at night. Night Markets, Flower Market were also very interesting. Thai snacks that were offered at these places were also very good. Overall amazing experience!

Nylah was our guide. There were 11 of us on this particular night. She was enthusiastic and knowledgeable.The tour's pace was just right, and we got to sample a variety of local dishes that the typical tourist might miss. This tour comes highly recommended.

The guide Nath was knowledgeable and funny, he had a lot of information to share. The number of places that we went and the variety of the food was a pleasant surprise. The tuk tuks were fun and they really did keep out of traffic as much as possible. Going to the temples at night was beautiful and uncrowned. I would definitely suggest taking this tour.
