Explore the lesser-known half of Bangkok.

Few foreigners venture west into Thonburi’s tangle of alleys that have been around since ‘Bang Kok’ was an unknown plum-growing village. Defined by teak wood houses rather than skyscrapers, the area allows you to slip behind Bangkok’s gleaming facade. Here in the hidden corners, you’ll find an easygoing attitude, great food and enduring Thai arts and crafts.

The Thonburi Food & Art Walk offers plenty of great food, but it also incorporates traditional aspects of Thai culture that sparsely exist elsewhere. Click here for photos of this tour.
