The Creative District Tour in Bangkok

In this unique walking tour, we will explore an upcoming district in Bangkok. Long known as the Old European Quarter, the Creative District is full of historic vibe and home to an old and diverse community. However, it is undergoing a deep transformation to become a principal hub in Bangkok’s art scene.

The change is further stimulated by the new settlement of trendy boutiques, sophisticated coffee shops and a growing night life with hipster bars. Lively and full of surprises, the Creative District Tour is recommended for visitors who wish to see an authentic, yet distinct part of Bangkok.

  • Street sign with the name "Rue de Brest"
  • Inside of ATTA Gallery in the Creative District
  • Street art in the Creative District
  • Inside of a coffee house at Warehouse 30
  • Lit red candles inside of a Chinese temple

Walking Tour of Bangkok

I have been to Bangkok a few times but this is the first time I’ve seen it by foot and I chose to do an arts/cultural tour, having seen the big temples before I wanted something a bit different. Needed to brave the heat but there were plenty of nice stops along the way. Very good value for a private tour – Binn was friendly, knowledgeable and spoke good English. The tour lasted around 3-4 hours starting at Saphin Taksin BTS station walking along Charoen Krung road (one of the first major roads in BKK), taking in various places of historical and artistic interest along the way (…)! Breaking for coffee at Warehouse 30 – a hipster coffee joint with a pleasant vibe. Overall would recommend this tour if you want to see Bangkok from a slightly different perspective.
