A late-night tour to see Bangkok old town from a different perspective. Follow the experienced runner guide to visit the historical area known as Rattanakosin Island (Old Town), where most of Bangkok’s “must see” sights can be found, including the Grand Palace and Wat Pho.
We will meet you at Sanam Chai MRT located directly in front of Museum Siam, featuring designs that resemble a Rattanakosin-era state room decorated with Thai art. The local guide will show you the beautiful temples (Wats), the best restaurants and bars offering beautiful river views. Run around the Grand Palace, visit Wat Pra Kaew, in English you will know it better as the Temple of the Emerald Buddha. This Wat is considered the most sacred of Buddhist temples in Thailand.
This tour introduces you to Wat Pho, known also as the Temple of the Reclining Buddha. The temple is the birthplace of traditional Thai massage which is still taught and practiced. See one of Bangkok’s most iconic riverside temples, Wat Arun, the ‘Temple of Dawn’. It’s beautifully decorated with tiny pieces of coloured glass and Chinese porcelain.
During the run, we stop at the Golden Mount, Wat Phu Kao Thong to get refreshing orange juices at Thipsamai, as one of the most popular Pad Thai restaurants in Bangkok. If you are a street food lover, you will know Jay Fai. It’s located next to Thipsamai, and is highly popular among food enthusiasts despite its high prices. The legendary restaurant received one star in the inaugural Bangkok 2018 Michelin Guide and was shown on Netflix documentary “street food” series. Remember to make a reservation of the signature crabmeat omelette, to avoid disappointment.
Bangkok at night – there are so many historic places, cultural landmarks, royal temples and sparkling nightlife. We will cross even more Wats off our check lists, like Wat Ratchanadda; the Metal Castle and Wat Suthat. While you enjoy the night scene, you can find the nice roof top bars and nightlife at the most famous walking street Khao San road.
