Get a local’s perspective on Thai-Chinese cuisine and culture as you stop to sample typical dishes such as dumplings, peppered pork noodles, and a refreshing coconut drink.

Satisfy your sweet tooth with Chinese doughnuts and other desserts, and finish up with a fancy tea demonstration. By the end of a tour, expect to eat enough samples to make up a filling meal.
