Eat, drink and sight-see with the smog through your hair

Everyone knows that riding on the back of a motorcycle taxi is one of Bangkok's iconic, if a bit smoggy, charms. Now you can incorporate two-wheeled backseat driving into your sight-seeing, too, with a bit of retro appeal thrown in. Best Bangkok Tours offers just that—tour guides will ferry you around on the back of—not a motorbike but—a scooter while you soak in the energy of the city. There are three different tours to choose from: "The Real Deal", which is the most subscribed tour, offers participants a thorough understanding of Bangkok and covers major attractions like Sukhumvit Road, Wat Po and Grand Palace, the Jim Thompson House and Chao Phraya River. Then there's also the "The Drink & Ride Tour", which takes you to five of the coolest and hippest bars in the city for a tipple of your choice (the tour is held at night, obviously). Foodies should go for "The Eat & Ride Tour", which lets you stuff your face with food from three different restaurants (you can choose the restos from a given list!). 

"The Real Deal" and "The Drink & Ride Tour" cost THB1,500 ($57.72) per person, while "The Eat & Ride Tour" costs THB3,000 ($115.44). The tours also typically last for three hours. The best part? You'll be fetched and dropped off right at the doorstep of your hotel—very convenient. Visit www.bestbangkoktours.com for more info.
