Bangkok: City Walking Tours | Vox City

Bangkok: 3 City Walking Tours

Discover Bangkok’s extraordinary culture and history with our walking tours. Enjoy a flexible experience with our pass valid for three days. Explore at your own pace with the Vox City app included in the ticket.

Comprised of 50 districts, some home to historic temples and others home to tall skyscrapers and mega malls, Bangkok is a symbol of synergy between old and new. From its origins in Thonburi to the development of industry in Chinatown to the bright lights and bustling pavements of Siam and Khao San, these guided walking tours through Bangkok explore the city through every era. Along the way, you will discover the city’s illustrious cultural, political, and religious landmarks, as well as its cool neighbourhoods and lesser-known gems. By the end of your stay in this enigmatic city, you’ll be looking for excuses not to leave.

The first guided walking route takes you on a tour of Bangkok’s Cultural Gems through the Wang Burapha district. Starting at the Old Siam Plaza, they’ll tell you about the intriguing history of the Bangkok Tram as you pass the hidden Phanumat Alley, the city’s gold trade centre, and Thip Wari, its electronics trade centre. From the bustling shopping alleys, you’ll get a breath of fresh air in Saranom Palace Park before reaching the spectacular Wat Pho temple complex, the nation’s biggest and most revered temple.

At the halfway point of this tour, you'll be shown where to stop for refreshments among Thai royalty at the Chakrabonsa Villa, one of Bangkok’s best-kept secrets. Then, expect to be entranced by the vivid colours and powerful scents at the Pak Khlong Talat flower market on the way to the next temple, Wat Ratchaburana. Finally, you’ll head along Tri Phet Road, known for its restaurants, shops, and temples, to reach Phahurat Market in Little India, the largest textiles trade centre in Thailand. True to the Bangkok lifestyle, the tour ends in Sampeng Avenue in Saphan Han, a shopping district where you can shop for cheap traditional wares and snack on delicious Thai street food.

After getting a cultural insight into Bangkok through some of its best temples and most popular streets, join a journey through time on the Historic Siam walking tour. Starting at the Wat Saket Temple, you’ll move ahead to the Wat Ratchapradit temple and over the Pi Kun Bridge to the Monk Bowl Village, where artisans have made bowls and other traditional Thai crafts for centuries. 

A stroll through the marigolds at the Mahakan Fortress will lead you to the city’s top cultural institutions, the Museum Prajadhipok, The Queen's Gallery, and the Baan Mowaan Museum. Afterwards, you’ll head past Dinso Road, feasting your eyes on more ornate temples along the way before closing the tour at the Sommot Amon Mak Bridge, where you can indulge in a delightful dinner at some of the best restaurants in the city.
