There’s nothing better than to share a meal with new friends and discuss the day’s adventures. Meals in Thailand are a mix of buffet and a la carte Thai food. Please be sure to advise us at the time of booking of any special dietary requirements. We always do our best to accommodate special diet needs and in most cases, special dietary needs can be met. However, in some destinations the variety of choice for certain special diets may be limited. If you are concerned please check with us before you book. The Local Cuisine The lunch and dinner meals included with the itinerary are Thai cuisine. Thai cooking is influenced by many flavours and spices and often has a spicy edge to the dish. However, not all dishes contain chilli. If you are not a fan of chilli you should always check with your waiter or restaurant server if dishes include chilli, as some chillis are very hot and may not be easily detected by just looking at the dish. The breakfasts will offer a variety including Asian style breakfast options and some western options. We advise travellers against street food and that you only dine at places that are recommended by your guide or tour leader. By following best advice it’s far less likely that you will become unwell with any stomach complaints. GROUP GUIDE This is a private group tour with a local national guide.
