Beyond Food is a unique food tour designed to not only try delicious Thai food but to take a deeper look into the role of street food and the informal economy in the functioning of the city. We will travel on foot and by all modes of transport to look at the past, present and future of street food in diverse off the beaten track neighborhoods. In light of the policy to ban street vending in Bangkok we aim to shift the focus away from the food itself toward the cultural-, economical and social dimensions impacted through such policy. The journey leads from the city’s commercial markets to residential working class neighborhoods. From popular areas that are scheduled to be cleared to the communities where vendors live with their families. From the micro scale to Bangkok’s billion dollar iconic attractions. This experience is designed to view the city not only through the eyes of a foodie but also through the eyes of a U.N.worker and social anthropologist. Gain insights and reflect and taste the future of food in the world’s capital of street food.

I felt like I was a part of the everyday life of a vibrant, energetic, and cosmopolitan city. Where most tours look at an aspect of a culture, this tour allows its participants to be part of the culture
This tour is highly recommended if you like tours with that personal touch ,small group, very helpful and friendly staff throughout the process of booking .really enjoyed our day would have done the 360 tour as well but run out of time.
“Great for first timers and Bangkok veterans”
Well, all I can say is, awesome. We did the Starters tour today with Mu. It was great. We had high expectations due to the TripAdvisor reviews, and the tour fit the bill.
If you want to see the real Bangkok, "local" style than this is the best possible way for you to do it.
