Hi, my name is Lucas, I am a tour guide since 2010, worked in more than 20 countries. Based in Bangkok - or Manila, Phnom Penh, Montréal, Kathmandu - I follow the current of the guiding ! I am doing those walking tour now, trying to share my knowledge with first time visitors. As I am doing this without salary, tip is well appreciated, Guru guidelines suggest min 10€ or 300 Bath. I can answer all questions and show you some hidden / out of the beaten path places. If you want to see and do tourist stuff like floating market, my walks are not for you. I like to show you the normal life that is going on here in Bangkok, while I will help you with local transportation and others places to visit. With me you are walking to see things of the daily life, to feel the vibe as the local way. If you just want to know about tourist stuff, its easy by your own. With me its more about to learn/walk as the Bangkonian style.

Tour description

Walking into a forest park in the heart of a city of 12 millions inhabitants !

Starting from Lumphini park, at the statue of king Rama VI, we go along the pounds, spotting the mysterious monitor lizards. Strolling around small bridges, pavilions and kiosk, we escape the ambient boiling.
A hidden footbridge brings us to the new Benjakitti forest park, where a walkway goes through the wetland, as originally was here.

We end up on Sukhumvit / Asok road, at the gigantic Terminal 21 (BTS Asok), where this vibrant city regains its vitality...

Experience Bangkok with me, as the people use to. It's a urban park walk, we are strolling in the city like locals. There is no tourist stuff here, if you have already done most of the traditional visit and wonder what to do more, this walk is for you !

    Right in front of king Rama VI statue in Lumphini park, it’s the exit #1 of the MRT Silom station. You’ll see me, I have many tattoos ;)

Great for public areas and general knowledge of the daily life of the people. I enjoyed the casual nature of the tour. Be mindful of daily temperature and weather

A pesar de estar yo sola, Lucas hizo todo el recorrido previsto y fue un gustazo contar con su experiencia y toda la información que me proporcionó, así que solo puedo estar agradecida y recomendaros el tour con él!
