With its historic temples, romantic riverside dining spots and exotic cuisine, Bangkok is among the world’s top tourist destinations. However, it’s easy to fall into a tourist trap of packing as many activities as possible in a day. If you want to truly appreciate the Thai capital's culture and authenticity, we’ve come up with a strategic and well-thought-out itinerary that starts at Bangkok’s most romantic hour: dusk.
With a certified local touch and time of day, this tour will show you the city at it's best: right when she prepares to slips into the night, casting sunset shadows from the temple spires, and before waking the busy bars and clubs. Avoid the daytime crowds and experience the serenity of the sacred places and momentous sites in the Big Mango – you won’t regret it.
The tour uses the Chao Praya waterway as its main guide. The river is a major channel for trade and transportation in the region. It can trace a history of cultural movements, such that following its course forms a narrative. Step into What Pho, the temple of the reclining buddha, before glimpsing the Wat Arun across the river. By boat, experience Wat Arun’s decorated facade: thousands of ceramics that make it one of the most stunning and colorful temples. Among other attractions that you can privately experience are the famous courtyard of Sanam Luang, Santa Cruz Church, and Kuan Yin Shrine. Off the beaten path, trawl through the Phra Phuttha Yodfa Bridge before exploring Pak Klong Talad (Flower Market).
"As a close to non-commercial experience of the city, remember to dress appropriately for the religious places you’ll be visiting. Walking around may prove to warm the trip, but bring a shawl, scarf or light sweater that covers you up when entering the places of worship."

We love our guide although we both forgot his name. He was terrific and very kind and knowledgeable. He showed us some great parts of Bangkok we would have never seen on our own. Highly recommend him to everyone. Regards, Curt and Kanha
Good trip, interesting experience to visit at night, relax way to know the city
Very very interesting tour, allowed me had a good sleep in the morning, then visited all the great sites with nothing worries, very pleased, both with our guide and the visiting spots！
This tour covered all the sites I wanted to visit, and we watched really beautiful sunset that day, the city is full of beautiful stories and quiet, can’t love this day more, definitely worth trying!
Met all my expectations, nice guide, great city view, perfect schedule, tried some good food as well, everything just perfect!
Perfect time and perfect guide, fun and relaxing tour with 2 Australian guys and 3 Mexican girls, this was the right thing to do when you travel instead of squeezed into a large crowd of people.
Felt so relaxed, and everything started to look soft and golden before the sun went down, enjoyed a relaxing and peaceful night with less tourists around, and the temples looked great and mysterious in the dark.
We arrived Bangkok in the afternoon and then decided to join this evening tour, it turned out to be a really good choice, not so crowded on the street and the tour spots, visited the temple in the evening let us see the different side of these ancient architecture. Our guide was quite knowledgeable and helped us get to know a lot about the local culture, nice chance to explore and feel the city!
It was my first time visiting Bangkok, and I wanted to see the sites with fewer people, so it was a no-brainer to take this tour. Frankly, I find the city more appealing at night. All the temples are lit up and the streets are filled with late night snacks and street food. The tour guide who was with the group was very knowledgeable about the temples and their history.
