Fantastic tour, visited Old Bangkok, bites at street food vendors, coffee, lunch and the huge fresh market. Worth the extra money for a personalized tour.

Chin was a friendly, knowledgeable guide who took our food preferences into consideration (vegetarian, spicy vs not spicy) when taking us on a tour around old Bangkok. The food was wonderful and varied. She knows everyone at every restaurant and food cart we stopped at. A great experience!

We loved the private food and culture provided by Chin at Chili Paste Tour. Chin's passion for Thai cooking, food and its history was evident as she guided us through Yodpiman Flower Mart and various vendors in Banglamphu. We sampled sticky rice and mango, sweet crepes, fresh fish in savory spices, green curries and a spectacular homemade lunch in a... More

After reading reviews, my wife, parents and I had very high expectations going into our day food tour with Chin yesterday. At the end of the day, we all unanimously agreed that Chin blew those expectations out of the water. We all absolutely loved it -- highlight of our Bangkok trip without doubt. We started our day at the flower... More

Chin was incredible and took our party of four at the very last minute. We got in around midnight the night before, shot her an email and received word that we would be able to make the 9 o'clock tour the next day. The tour was amazing and took us through markets we wouldn't have found otherwise and had us... More

This great trip was the highlight of my trip to Bangkok. The tour felt like you got to fit into the city, not just intrude as a tourist. Not to be missed.

During a fantastic trip to Bangkok, our two favourite days were unquestionably the ones we spent with Chin. We did two day tours, the Bangkok Food and Culture Walk and the Countryside Cooking Class, and both were incredible experiences. Chin is a great host, and as you walk through the markets you can see what a wonderful relationship she has... More

We had a relaxing, informative and delicious day. Chin is a relaxed, lovely guide. She was organized, communicated well and made sure our day went smoothly. We saw some things we would never have seen otherwise.

Staying in Banglamphu

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
