About the Tour

Bangkok's Nana area is known for one thing - its legendary nightlife centered around Nana Plaza, one of the city's best known red light districts. But there's so much more to see than just that. Tucked away in hidden corners and down narrow alleys is great food, cool bars, historic clubs, and even a movie set or two. Plus, the huge variety of people that live and work in this neighborhood. Put all that together and you have an area that's ripe for exploration - providing you know where to go.

Came to Thailand in 2001 on a short vacation. Forgot to go home. Now a married family man with no plans to leave. I love Bangkok in all its awful, exciting, grimy, gorgeous glory.

Tips

Places to stop along the way

The Middle Eastern food in this area is superb, and there are plenty of places on the tour to order a refreshing beverage and learn a bit about its history.

Best time of day

This tour is best started around 8pm. There are plenty of places to stop for food too, so don't head out on a full stomach.

Precautions

Pickpocketing isn't unheard of, and watch bags or phones - motorcycles have been known to fly by and snatch them out of hands. Also, if you plan to drink it up, that's fine, but if you're the type who gets loud or pushy, watch yourself. It's normally very safe, but this is NOT the area to get into angry disagreements with locals. And if you happen into any of the girlie bars, DO NOT try and sneak a photo. You will be caught and thrown out on your ass.
