Bangkok’s culture is tightly-knitted to food: nowhere in the country is the abundance of eccentric, fabulous flavours as present as in the capital. Trying and mingling with our food experts on this 4-day journey and you don’t want anything else to eat.Description
Favouring flavours on your exploration of the Thai capital and you’ve come to the right address. Few cities can offer such an immense variety of sampling the finest in local cuisine, with views and experiences to match, as Bangkok. We have captured culinary highlights with trade secrets for what truly encompasses the broad range of Thai food in a 4-day foodie tour, constructed around a superior-class accommodation in the heart of it all. No need to study or find your own way to indulge in the explosion of flavours, smells and spices of Thai cuisine: just follow our path and enjoy!
After arriving at one of Bangkok’s two airports, transfer to your Sukhumvit-based accommodation will be the start of a gastronomical 4 days, guided by our team on the ground to sample the finest Thai food. The remainder of the day can be filled in the way you like it but be mindful that for dinner, cruising on the Chao Phraya River is confirmed. Using one of the smaller, converted wooden barges, a greater taste of Thai cuisine with a view to match is not possible.
After a well-deserved and good night’s rest, we will be spending most of the morning and part of the afternoon diving deep into the traditional side of Bangkok. We recommend keeping your breakfast intake this morning on the low side as sampling local examples of the amazing quality of street food require you to keep an empty stomach. Life for local Thais, passionate about food starts at a local wet market and this morning follows in their footsteps. Fresh fruit, old-style family-run restaurants, street food vendors and much more make your palate explore with everything from sweet to savoury. An authentic Thai lunch of course is included before we make our way back to your hotel for a little siesta. The evening is all about Bangkok’s paradise for discerned foodies: dining on dishes along narrow alleys and turning uncharted corners gives a whole new meaning to the pinnacle of street food galore.
Eating is one thing but preparing is another. On the third day, a joint Thai cooking class turns the tables. Instead of seeing everything freshly prepared in front of your eyes, it is now your turn to put your cooking skills to the test and serve your version of what’s on the menu. Guided by professional chefs and experts in Thai cuisine, your own creation will be served for lunch with ample assistance provided on this 5-hour gastronomical journey. Cutting, cooking blending and presenting are what’s in store this morning. Rambutti Alley has always been a hot spot for the cool and trendy when it comes to exploring new tastes and light eats. We venture into this district near Khao San Road to mingle with the locals for a light meal as you soon find out what’s the food vibe these days in Thailand.
Your tour through the wonderful flavours of Thai cuisine come to an end on the fourth day with a transfer from your hotel back to the airport to travel back home or to you next destination.Highlights
