Full description

Feast on over 15 tastings on a food tour around the markets and street eats of Chiang Mai on a private songthaew truck tour. Your foodie guide will take you on a tour and in between learning about the ingredients that go into Northern Thai cuisine, you'll snack on plenty of different Northern Thai classics.

Prepare to drool over ladles of creamy khao soi curry with crispy noodles, chili jam, and pickled greens, and spatchcocked chickens sizzling over hot charcoal. Refresh your tastebuds with zingy som tum papaya salads and sticky rice, and lemongrass-stuffed sai oua sausages among more than a dozen tastings you'd struggle to find alone.

The tour concludes in the trendy Nimmanhaemin district not far from the central hotels in the city. Enjoy local hospitality and meet new friends along the way. End the tour armed with the knowledge you'll need to continue eating street food across Thailand.

The tour was wonderful! We enjoyed so many amazing Thai dishes that we didn’t know before plus met with the local vendors and restaurant owners. We definitely LOVED the food!! The transportation was super convenient and fast and our guide was very knowledgeable and spoke very good English. We would suggest however calming down the pace a little, so we can enjoy the food and the sites in a more relaxed way.

We were fortunate to be the only ones on the tour (myself and my partner). The guide was very informative and shared a lot of knowledge of the history and difference in style of food across Thailand. All of the food was delicious. It was a good variety of food from different regions. It was nice to go to different parts of Chiang Mai, especially places we may not have thought to go

We had a wonderful tour with Moui. She was very knowledgeable and showed us numerous interesting restaurants and dishes. We definitely would not have been able to find a lot of the restaurants without her. And even if we could, we would not have been able to order. These restaurants were small, local places and it was great to eat what the locals eat.
