Highlights
    What to Expect
    Begin with pickup at your Chiang Mai accommodations, then meet a small group of fellow foodies—for a more personal experience, the group size is limited to eight people.

    Follow a route that will take you to two evening markets, where you’ll try a wide variety of dishes, from kannom jin Chinese noodles to northern Thai specialties, coconut dumplings, stewed pork, and sweets. This is the perfect time to learn some basic phrases with help from a local, then practice ordering dishes in Thai. The tour includes a leaflet that explains the most popular street food dishes, so you can keep exploring Thai markets on your own.

    With a small group and an experienced guide, you’ll have plenty of time to ask questions about unfamiliar foods, ingredients, and how to eat some of Thailand’s more exotic dishes. After you’ve tasted your way through both markets, you’ll hop a songthaew for the return trip to your accommodations, where this tour concludes.

    JJ was an excellent host. I had never liked curry before, but I told him I wasn’t a fan of coconut milk and he showed me how to fix it up. Everything was delicious and I had a lot of fun!

    Great tour and guide! Our children had the opportunity to help one of the local street vendors prepare the food...super fun. He took us to all the best spots that we certainly would not have discovered on our own including an Anthony Bourdain approved spot!!
