Visit Bangkok Old Town & Do Thai Massage From Where It Was Invented
You have a busy schedule and have only half-day left to explore Bangkok? This is the trip for you! I'll show you around Bangkok old town, temples, street life + do Thai massage from where it was invented (Wat Pho). We will end the day with Thai food.
Why this trip?
You will enjoy the MUST-visit attractions of Bangkok (ranging from Grand palace, Wat Pho, original Thai massage, authentic Thai dinner) in just half-day. This is the best way to spend your limited time in Bangkok.
How local is it?
Imagine yourself getting a Thai massage from where it was invented. This should speak itself on how local is it. I'm also a native Bangkokian, born and raised here!
What makes it unique?
It's the combination of local places, local people, local stories in your limited half-day time!

Delicious and informative!
Tried out a ton of different delicious foods, and learned a lot about food, Thai lifestyle, and the places we walked / travelled through. Taro was a great guide and just a fun person to hang out with - we had good conversations the whole night. Loved that we hopped around all over the place, and also used many modes of transportation. He was very accommodating about what foods we wanted to try (since we'd been in Bangkok previously) and had great recommendations. Because of the amount of knowledge and context that Taro provided on food and culture it was still such a worthwhile tour even though we'd visited before. The bar at the end is also super cool and a great way to end the night!

Meeting arrangements were perfect. Taro (Amornched) was attentive and full of local information for both our trip and our 30km homeward journey, where he kindly organised our taxi. I had queries regarding a subsequent trip, and Taro displayed considerable patience in assisting me with that too. (Which thanks to him, ran smoothly as well). Chinatown Streetfood with Taro is 100% recommended by both me and my wife.

Fantastic and yummy tour through Bangkoks streets
Amornched at first kindly postponed the tour by one day as my plane arrived way too late.
The next evening he guided me through various street stalls and patiently explained and suggested different street food outside of and in Chinatown... what a yum experience.
As a finishing highlight Amornched showed me a small music-bar, where we ended the tour with a local drink.
I can highly recommend to take the "Secret Street Food & Best of Chinatown Foodie Tour" when in Bangkok!
