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

From gigantic MBK shopping center to local taxi boat and to historical Ratchadamnoen street, we walk across daily life of the Bangkonian.

Starting at MBK downtown, we learn about Sky train system and then walk to Hua Chang pier to catch taxi boat (12 Bath),  on our way to Golden Mount and the famous Ratchadamnoen street with the democracy monument. 
* You guys can go up to the top of Golden Mount for a beautiful view over the city, it’s 100 Bath/person.
Then we will walk through some small alleys to talk about daily life.

We end up at Khao San Road. Good place to crack a beer at the end of the day.
This is not a spectacular walk, if you fancy tourist stuff, this walk is not for you. We will be walking and using local transport as the Bangkonian does. This walk is good if you just arrived in Bangkok as we talk and use local transportation.

If you want to feel the vibe of the daily life here, come on down !

Ich kann die Tour mit Luc nur empfehlen. Er vermittelt sein Wissen und seine Erfahrungen auf eine sehr angenehme, interessante und freundliche Art. Es macht Spaß ihm zu zuhören und er gibt gerne Tipps und Ratschläge, die nicht im touristischen Sightseeing zu finden sind. Wenn ihr wirklich über Stadt und Leute etwas erfahren möchtet, bucht eine Tour mit Luc. Viel Spaß !!
