Getting streetwise ...

When I travel I love to try the street food, the good local ‘hole in the wall’ restaurants and the off the beaten track local attractions. However I, like most people, usually feel safer if I have a local show me the best places to do this.

Anantara Bangkok Riverside has introduced the Street Wise Guru program so that guests can experience the Real Bangkok.

Expert Streetwise Guru, Khun Chettha will show you some of the Bangkok’s best street vendors and local markets giving you a fun, educational and true cultural experience during your stay in Bangkok.

Chettha has worked at the resort for 15 years and is also Chief Concierge for the property, is a member of the Hotel Concierge Association, and is always testing out new culinary recommendations. Consequently he has developed a Bangkok gastronomy hot list that is second to none, meaning that guests needn’t navigate the city’s overwhelming choice, and can simply head straight for the places that boast his experienced seal of approval. Guests can even ask Chettha to accompany them on a tour to explore lesser known attractions in addition to famous sites. This unique opportunity to combine a cultural and culinary trip comes with the added educational and cultural appeal of gaining insider knowledge from a local’s point of view.
