We will meet early in the morning at the meeting point near Charoen Krung Road. It is a major road in Bangkok and the first in Thailand to be built using modern construction methods around 157years ago. It is still home to many historic buildings and neighborhoods.That's why there are lots of street food vendors there cooking, using recipes passed down through generations. Some of the shops have been open for almost 100 years.
We will discover an authentic, unique way of how Thai people start their day at local fresh food market. We will navigate through the stalls to see what the local fresh produce market has to offer and see how vendors prepare recipes and meals. I will explain about what you see and taste and how to prepare a meal using them. You will also have a chance to shop for reasonably priced groceries , sea food and fruit to take home.
After the experience, it is convenient visit other major attractions that are best visited early in the morning, e.g Grand Palace, reclining Buddha, Wat Arun etc

I am a market and food enthusiast. Since childhood I have started my day at the market I live locally on one of the oldest roads in Bangkok (157+ years old) which is vibrant and has lots of street food to offer. I have never gone home hungry since living around here. I fell in love with this historical street where many five-stars hotels are located, as it's a prime area: easy to commute to and from, vibrant, friendly, safe and has a lot to offer. Many restaurants famous among the locals are located here within a few steps from my home.
I have always been a die-hard foodie and have hosted a successful floating market experience : https://abnb.me/PCs4TSgJYM? with 300+ 5 stars reviews. Now I would like to show my guests on how Thai people start their day at the market with street food breakfast, good drink and great company.

Where you'll be

We will navigate through one of the oldest local fresh produce markets in Bangkok. This market is where Thai people start thier day, going there to buy groceries. There will be fresh locally sourced fish, meat, vegetables, fruits and herbs to see and buy.
Eating out for Thai people is a necessity not a luxury. Not many Thais cook at home as eating out is much more fun a social event and can be cheaper than cooking for one at hom

Have you ever passed all the street market stalls and thought “that looks tasty”, but then thought “I wonder if I be ok afterwards” or “what is that?” Well, if that’s you and you are in Bangkok, then get up early and meet up with Pook. The tour is really good. Interesting facts -bout the area and the food that you will be trying. Come hungry, as there are lots of great things to try. Barbecue Chicken Skewers with Sticky Rice came out top for me, but it was a close run thing with the Congee or the Roasted Duck with Noodles. Ever wondered how they make coconut milk? Come along and you might see! Pook was a great guide. Very friendly and a great ambassador for the area she lives in. Everywhere, everyone was very good at sticking to Covid Restrictions. Face Masks, Social Distancing etc. If you like trying something new to eat and see tasty local food, then book with a trip with Pook. You won’t regret it.

Pook is a great host. From booking this experience she was able to offer great suggestions for experiences in Thailand and we especially appreciated being her advice with taking local transport. During the morning tour Pook showed us a variety of dishes. We especially loved the pork sticks, although the sticky rice on a stick will always make me giggle, because my other half and I were terrible at doing it! The coffee is tasty and I am obsessed with the market place where we found the ‘real’ Thailand. We chose to do this on our first morning and it was the best way to really get to feel the vibe of Bangkok. I wish we had visited on a weekend and done her other tours. We took pooks advice and bought gold leaf so when we visited spiritual sites we could make an offering. It was only 30 baht for a pack of these little squares and although neither of us are religious, it made us feel involved in the community and respectful to the culture. I would totally suggest doing this if you can.

Fantastic way to eat breakfast and get an early start to the day! Having a street food guide is great in Thailand. You get the inside scoop without having to do all the research. Even as an experienced eater, I was very happy with the selection of flavors. Thank you Pook!

Pook was a sweetheart the entire time. I attended 2 of her events (the other being floating markets). I enjoyed them both a lot. Highly recommend.

For essentially the cost of a hotel breakfast in Bangkok, with Pook you get to experience how Thai people start their day and really get the true essence of Bangkok and “Thai” breakfast with so many options. It’s an early start but something you wouldn’t be able to experience otherwise. She has a deep knowledge of the local area and offered us an insight into Thai life that we likely wouldn’t have been able to see otherwise. I tried so many foods that I wouldn’t have had the opportunity to try otherwise. Highly recommended for foodies!!! Pook is incredibly personable and has a beautiful personality. She welcomed us like close friends/family. On the tour she gave us TONS of recommendations of what else we could do/see/eat and I think I’ll have to keep coming back to Thailand to try all of them. I highly recommend both experiences run by Pook in Bangkok.

Jak zawsze wyjście z Pook to świetna zabawa. Możemy zobaczyć miejsce, które ciężko by nam było odkryć bez przewodnika. W dodatku Pook to niesamowicie miła kobieta z którą utrzymuje się relacje na długo po zakończonej atrakcji. Bardzo polecam!
