An extraordinary Thailand culinary food tour will take you to discover the real taste of Thailand in three different cities packed with history, culture and culinary treasures. Your adventure begins from the hustle and bustle of metropolitan Bangkok, with a midnight food tour to savor authentic Thai cuisine at Bangkok's iconic after-dark food markets while admiring the city’s legendary temples. Say goodbye to Bangkok to continue the tasty adventure of your Thailand food tour. The road will then take you away from the urban life and into the midst of the nature of Chiang Mai. You’ll join a most loved cooking class and spend one day hanging out with the elephants. The journey ends in Phuket, where you’ll experience the unique diversity of cuisine while exploring the beautiful Old Town of Phuket.
Welcome to Bangkok - A paradise for every foodie from all over the world. Upon arrival at the airport, you will be met near the air-bridge and be escorted to the immigration counter. Our staff will take your luggage from the luggage belt and take you directly to meet your driver for a transfer without a guide to your hotel. After check-in, you will have free time to stretch after the long flight. Relax as much as you can because we’ll start our tasty Thailand food tour tomorrow.
After breakfast, our guide will pick you up from the hotel and take you to the Grand Palace - the most important royal palace in Thailand. Continue to Wat Pho - one of the oldest temples in Bangkok. Enjoy a 30-minute foot massage at the massage school which is known as the birthplace of traditional Thai massage since it first opened in 1955 at the temple’s ground.
Most of culinary tours of Thailand starts in Bangkok - the paradise of every food lover. When the sun goes down, it’s time for a tastiest adventure. Our Thailand food tour package includes a fun ride on the tuk-tuk to the best local eateries in town for food tasting, and visits between the bites to the old-town landmarks and temples. It is interesting to see a different Bangkok at night compared to the city in the day time. We’ll taste a variety of savory menus, including the local favorite Thai food, the town’s best Pad Thai, and the popular home-style Thai snack while the tempting sounds of several dozens kinds of dishes pervading the air.
Enjoy your delicious breakfast then we’ll take a one-hour flight from Bangkok to Chiang Mai: the beautiful northern mountain area of Thailand. Here, you’ll stay 3 nights at the charming Rachamankha - one of the best hotels in town.
In the evening, we’ll discover Chiangmai at night with a private guide. Start at the 14th-century Buddhist temple Wat Lok Molee to experience a monk chanting. Afterward, we’ll go to the Chang Puak Gate food market. Regularly acclaimed as the unofficial food capital, it’s a tasty task in our culinary tour of Thailand to savor all the dishes that are famed for the northern Thai cuisine. Before heading back to the hotel, we’ll go to the North Gate - the old main entrance for people in the old days.
A Thailand street food tour will be incomplete without knowing the main ingredients and recipes that make the reputation for Thai cuisine. Today, we’ll go to a cooking class where we’ll learn to cook some famous Thai dishes. The course starts with a visit to the local market to get familiar with ingredients. Then we’ll get to know more about them at an organic garden before being ready for the cooking session. Our experienced instructors will help you experience the real ambiance of traditional Thai, whilst you cook. Enjoy a delicious meal from what we’ve cooked. Return to the hotel for a free afternoon.
Elephant experience is always a big attraction in Thailand. Today, we’ll visit Patara Elephant Farm - one of the best ethical elephant farms in the country, to join a training session. It includes approaching and being close to the elephants, morning feeding, daily health care, pregnancy tests, caretaking for mother and small baby, and bathing. You will also learn about elephant skin-care and spoken commands for these giant yet gentle creators. The experience is amazing and we’ll be surprised to realize that we can bond with our elephants in such a short time.
Later, we’ll trek with the elephants uphill to visit a waterfall where we’ll have a nutritious picnic lunch. Have a lot of fun refreshing in the water with our elephant before getting back to the farm.
Bangkok is famous for food but it isn’t the only place for food tasting in Thailand. Great street food tours Thailand will always include Phuket where we’ll find culinary influences between Chinese cuisine and local cooking style.
Say goodbye to Chiang Mai, we’ll fly to Phuket, the largest island of the country. Phuket is the last stop in our food adventure. We’ll stay 3 nights at Surin Phuket - an elegant hideaway soaking in the sights and sounds of nature.
If you want to get to know the people of a country, exploring their food is an excellent way to get a real insight and our Thailand culinary tours can ensure that you immerse yourself in the culture and try everything that is on offer.
Today, we’ll discover the secret of Phuket Town and its delicious local menu. We’ll enjoy morning by tasting famous local Phuket’s style breakfast, Dim Sum and Rice Vermicelli with Southern Thai Curry served with Vegetable Buffet. Then, try the famous freshly made charcoal-fried Roti served with a locally made curry. After that, explore the historic Tha-Lang road. After a cultural walk, try traditional Baba cuisines - Porpie and Moo Hong. We will finish this delicious trip at Khao Rang for a dessert with a beautiful panoramic view of Phuket city before dropping you off at your hotel.
Spend the day to enjoy the hotel and relax on the beach. The Surin Phuket is located on the most beautiful golden sands, exuding the idyllic and relaxed vibe.

I have to admit it - I was a little apprehensive about using a foreign travel agent. After reading a glowing review in Travel & Leisure magazine, I decided to reach out to Exotic Voyages to discuss planning a two-week trip to Thailand in celebration of my 30th wedding anniversary. I could not have made a better decision. My initial concerns were quickly allayed when I requested and received from Ha Vy local references from her clients in the US. Each of those references proved to be happy and satisfied customers who were more than willing to share their experiences working with Exotic Voyages and specifically, Vy as their travel agent. I usually plan and book my own travel however, in this case, being a first-time visitor to Asia and in unfamiliar territory, I decided to use a professional travel agent and boy am I glad I did so. Vy was an absolute pleasure to work with. Her knowledge, attention to detail, and responsiveness far exceeded my expectations. We communicated via email, phone, and WhatsApp. WhatsApp was probably the easiest communication mechanism we used. Vy answered all of my questions (and there were many) quickly and professionally. She took care of everything and communicated with me before, during, and after the trip. Vy made sure we were happy throughout our adventure and that we got home safely - we were lucky to have just missed by two days the airport closure in Hong Kong which was our connection point back to NY. My initial guidance to Vy was as follows - I wanted unique local experiences coupled with five-star luxury boutique accommodations and personalized service. And, that is exactly what she delivered. We were taken care of from the moment we stepped off the airplane in Bangkok until the moment we left Koh Samui. We had a private air-conditioned van with driver and knowledgeable guides (thank you Nud and Aree) throughout our trip who ensured our safety, helped communicate with the locals, and made sure we had experiences "off the beaten path". Our trip started at the Anantara Golden Triangle Resort in Chiang Saen, Northern Thailand (border of Myanmar and Laos). This is a beautiful resort and elephant sanctuary and was probably the highlight of our trip. We walked with the elephants and learned from the mahouts who care for them. This was followed by wonderful massages in the spa. We also crossed the border into Myanmar where we visited local markets and temples and rode in tuk tuks. Lastly, we took a long boat up the Mekong River and stopped briefly in Laos. August is the rainy season in Thailand but in my opinion, it is a great time to visit as the weather is not so hot and there are fewer tourists. Rain showers did not prevent us from doing any of the activities and in fact, contributed to the romantic appeal of these exotic locales. Other stops along our journey included: Khum Lanna, Pai, Chiang Mai, and finally Koh Samui. Each boutique hotel was spectacular and the staff greeted us warmly. I can go on and on about how pleased we were with this trip but suffice it to say that Exotic Voyages is a first-class travel agency who provides real value to their clients. I highly recommend this fantastic company and specifically Ha Vy for all of your journeys to SE Asia. I have already forwarded my itinerary to many colleagues and friends and expect that they will be contacting Vy in the not too distant future. Finally, I anticipate returning to SE Asia (perhaps Vietnam and Cambodia) in the coming years and will certainly call on Vy once again.READ MORE

I’m so happy we booked our honeymoon with Exotic Voyages. Ha Vy was great to work with and she tailored the honeymoon package to match our needs and interests perfectly. As soon as we arrived in Thailand, there was someone waiting for us just outside the airplane with a sign and they helped us with everything. We never went anywhere without a guide helping us and everything was already paid for which made the trip so smooth and easy. All the activities were so much fun, especially Patara Elephant farm and snorkelling in Koh Tao :) Each day was a new adventure and we got to rest in the beautiful beaches of Koh Samui in the final two days. All the tour guides were awesome, especially Pong. We will remember our amazing trip for the rest of our lives :) I highly recommend booking your trip with Exotic Voyages, it’s so worth it.READ MORE
