A Street Art and Food Exploration Experience
Take your group to take in the sights, smells and sounds and savour the sublime street food of one of Bangkok’s oldest neighborhoods, Talad Noi.
Meaning small (Noi) Market (Talad), the area is home to several historic temples, quaint shop houses, stately colonial mansions, and winding narrow lanes teeming with street art and used auto parts.
Portuguese settlers first arrived in what is now known as Talad Noi after the fall of Ayutthaya (The Old Capital) in 1767. Talad Noi was the obvious location for waves of immigrants to settled as it was the location of Bangkok’s first port. Chinese, Vietnamese, Hokkien, Teochew, and Hakka ethnic groups were among them. Talad Noi, which has been around for more than 200 years, was the hub of shipping trade until a decline led many of the locals to start used car parts businesses in what would later become known as “Sieng Gong.” All these differing cultures have left a lasting mark on the food and the feel of the area – which we can take you and your group round on a guided walk
A street photographer’s paradise, just a short distance from Bangkok’s Chinatown (Yaowarat). Talad Noi is a quiet, riverside Chinese community where every alleyway offers a different surprise. One of a must visit artwork is Vhil’s (Alexandre Farto) wall carving on the wall of the historic Portuguese Embassy as homage to the centuries long Thai-Portuguese relationship – we’ll make sure you get to see it.
After visiting Bangkok’s Charoenkrung and Talad Noi art district, take a ride by local tuk tuk and enjoy an evening of street food tour around the famous Chinatown.
