What is the good time to take tuk tuk ride ?

Evening is best for take tuk tuk ride, we recommend after 17:00 -19:00 is the best time. When local people start to leave the town, and  after sunset it is cool down and you could see the light of Bangkok.

Street noodle called Yentafour. It is a pink soup, rice noodle with various kinds of topping. Personally, I do not link this kind of noodle since I think it is boring taste. This street food shop changes my attitude after the first bite. It is so yummy. The combination of spicy and sour is very well blending. The location is at Pratupee intersection which is not far from Pad Thai Tip Samai.Padthai and local snack

More food on this street such as Lad nar 40 Pee ( forty year old tick noodle) , Mit ko yuan ( selling alacart food ) , Pork ball and spicy dipping, duck noodle, bread bake with green sauce at Mon Nom sod and etc. There are many interesting street food that is not listed here. If you travel to Dinsor road area , it is very easy to find good food.
