‘Tuck Tuck’ into Bangkok’s Hidden Foodie Hotspots

tuk tuk

Eat as the locals do and venture into the backstreets of bustling Bangkok aboard VIE Hotel Bangkok’s stylish tuk tuk. Best taken at night-time, when the city truly comes to life, guests can hire the tuk tuk exclusively with a seasoned gastro-guide in tow, on hand to reveal Bangkok’s best street food hotspots – for adventurous foodies, there’s no better destination in the world.

A mix pot of Thai and international cuisine makes for an intense blend of salty, sweet, spicy and sour, with one vendor even earning a Michelin Star for her wok-fried dishes – Jay Fai, known as the Queen of Thai street food – is renowned for nests of noodles with crab and prawns, cooked over charcoal fires in her tiny shophouse. Tuck into a punchy Pad Thai, taste chili-packed North Eastern (Escan) dishes and sample the infamous Som Tam, a zesty papaya salad. Weave through the Bangkok traffic to visit off-the-beaten track eateries and some of the best viewpoints in the city, before heading back to the hotel for a nightcap in the swish La Vie Piano Bar.

The hotel also offers a tuk tuk complimentary to travelers who want to explore the city’s best shopping districts – including the famous MBK, Siam Centre and Siam Discovery – as well as historic landmarks, from temples and flower markets to Jim Thompson’s world-renowned silk museum, a stone’s throw from the hotel. Nearby the city’s high-end shopping district, VIE Hotel Bangkok houses a spa, rooftop pool, two restaurants and luxury rooms and suites, each with sprawling views across the skyline from floor-to-ceiling windows.

Prices, locations and times can be arranged directly with the hotel’s concierge. For more information visit viehotelbangkok.com
