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 in Thailand, 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. There are plenty to keep you busy, from an enormous hexagonal-shaped swimming pool, complimentary kayaks, catamarans, SUPs to yoga classes held beachside.
Enjoy a pleasant breakfast buffet that is served in the Sunset Cafe, overlooking the garden and pool as the last delicious bite in your Thailand food tour. At the right time, we’ll drive you to the airport for your departure flight.

WOW! What an amazing trip of a lifetime. If you are EVER looking to go to SE Asia, you should look into booking your trip with Exotic Voyages! Our trip was truly amazing based on the customer service we received on this trip. From the moment we thought about going to SE Asia, we knew that we were going to need help booking this trip. From the moment we contacted Exotic Voyages, all of our anxieties about arranging this vacation were greatly put to ease. We had the amazing Vy help us plan out 2 week trip to Thailand so we could attend the Lantern Festival. All the way from the initial questionnaire to the final booking process, she was very helpful and attentive to our needs. We spent time all over Thailand (Bangkok, Krabi & Chiang Mai) and every single day we saw such amazing temples, ate the best food and stayed at some of the most beautiful hotels. Our day guides (Mong in Chiang Mai was the BEST!) made us feel comfortable and we truly felt that we got to know them as family. I am so glad that I used Exotic Voyages to help us plan our trip & they really took all of the hard work of planning out for us. I hope that one day we will return back to Thailand or explore other parts of SE Asia and I KNOW we will use Exotic Voyages. Thank you again for the most amazing trip ever, Eva & JustinREAD MORE

It was such a pleasure to work with Annie from start to finish. Annie worked patiently with my very particular husband for a good month to plan a 19 day trip. (I think they bonded) We visited Hong Kong, Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam. EVERY luxury hotel was just over the top beautiful. We took airplanes, 2 cruise boats, and a sea airplane to visit each country. There was always a knowledgeable and interesting English speaking guide to pick us up. She planned interesting tours and gave us plenty of leisure time. She also texted us everyday to see how we were doing! At one stop we wanted to change a tour planned for another and she managed to do that as well......Annie actually met us in Hanoi and we enjoyed a dinner together at one of her favorite restaurants, then took me shopping for a silk dress....really! Thank you Annie for the best trip ever. I will highly recommend you and Exotic Voyages.READ MORE

Exotic Voyages planned a truly amazing trip for me and my husband. Our travel designer Ha Vy was so helpful and patient as we personalized the trip itinerary and she was very responsive to all of our questions. I'd recommend going in October. It's the end of the rainy season so rates are cheaper. It only rained out our plans one night and it's slightly cooler too. The execution was flawless from the moment we arrived. EV's regional manager Mark greeted us at our hotel with gifts from Thailand. We appreciated all the little details like that. We never had to wait for anything and our guides were completely knowledgeable. They quickly catered to two of our last minute requests and made them happen effortlessly. The hotels we stayed at were impeccable, especially Hotel Muse in Bangkok, Na Nirand in Chiang Mai and Sri Panwa in Phuket. Two things we would change if we'd known would be to add an extra day in Bangkok and stay in a different resort than Paradise Koh Yao. There were a lot of families with kids and it wasn't as relaxing as we would have liked given the noise. All in all, this was a once-in-a-lifetime trip that we're going to be talking about for many years. I had really high expectations and EV exceeded them all.READ MORE
