Travel and eating go hand in hand. You go to a new place and you want to try something you haven't had before. The challenge of said new place is that you may not know where to go. In a city as big as Bangkok, it can be daunting to know where to go, what to order or how to get there if you don't have friends, family or co-workers to show you around. I've added food tours to my short list of organized activities I seek out, along with ghost tours, cooking schools and buses where you get to wear crazy hats. I like small groups of people who are there to have a good time and don't take themselves, or me, too seriously.
Technology makes things so easy...I booked this tour with Bangkok Food Tours on my phone while sipping coffee at breakfast. We met our guide and small group at the sky train station, learned the plan for eating all the things, hopped into our Tuk Tuks and off we went for a fun evening rolling through the streets of Bangkok.
In fact since I can't remember the names of all the delicious things (like salad #1 below) - it's a good thing I take lots of pictures.
