Description

Bangkok is generally known to be a sleepless city filled with shopfronts emblazoned with colourful lights, bars blaring loud music and streams of boisterous people filling the streets. But it would be remiss if not mentioning Bangkok as a paradise for street food and a place where the food is always ready to welcome guests, even late at night. Leaving behind the heat of the day; after the moon has risen, take a chance to cruise Bangkok’s streets in one of the city’s iconic 3-wheel, Tuk Tuks. This open-air vehicle allows feeling the wind in the hair as well as easily enjoying the aromas streaming from local Bangkokian’s favourite places to eat, including the local favourite Kao Mun Kai, the town’s best Pad Thai, and other popular home-style Thai snacks. Between bites, the visit of the amazing flower market and the nighttime view of landmarks like Wat Pho Temple gives the chance to appreciate a perspective quite different to the busy daytime scene.

Quando la canicola della giornata lascia il posto alla più piacevole temperatura serale, addentratevi nei meandri della città su un pittoresco taxi a tre ruote. Scoprirete ben presto un volto della città completamente diverso da quello mostrato durante il giorno. Dal vostro tuk tuk, con i capelli svolazzanti nella brezza serale, lasciatevi stuzzicare dai mille sapori che aleggiano tra le bancarelle.

Tra un morso e l’altro, fate un salto all’imperdibile mercato dei fiori ed ammirate i migliori scorci della città alla luce morbida della luna.
