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.
Chinatown’s diverse communities
Bangkok’s most intricate maze of quaint, little alleys
Bangkok’s creative heritage conservation projects

The Chinatown Unplugged was born out of an event named Bye Bye Chinatown, a street photography event the visually documented the disappearance of heritage buildings and communities due to rapid urban development. To help raise awareness, Michael from bangkokvanguards designed a walking tour that takes you deeper into the areas and communities that are trying to preserving their roots while also embracing the future. This tour is not designed with main-tourist sights in mind but rather to understand the past, present and future of Chinatown as well as the stories and aspirations of one of Bangkok’s last authentic neighborhoods.
