  • Let your group leader guide you through the best local hawker stalls and food markets of the country’s bustling capital, Bangkok.
  • Whip up northern Thai khantohk specialities just outside of Chiang Mai, and experience Thai life from a local's perspective with a village homestay.
  • Encounter the eyeopening and surprising world of Thai food markets, filled with unpredictable tastes and found in unexpected places – on a river or set up on a railway track!
Start in Bangkok and end in Chiang Mai, the Thailand Real Food Adventure trip is a guided food tour that takes 8 days. You will travel through Chiang Mai, Kanchanaburi and Bangkok in Thailand.
