Introduction to fresh vegetables, fruits and authentic Thai food that local people eat everyday. Thailand is divided into two sections: tourist areas and local areas. They are totally different from each other, and most foreigners only get to know the tourist ones. Have you visited a local market in Thailand? Maybe “Yes” and maybe “No”. If the answer is “Yes”, you might have ended up with many questions, for example: • Why is everything in the open air? Is it safe to do that? The pork, fish, chicken… They have no ice! • Why do they put everything in plastic bags? • Do local people really eat insects or is it just a tourist thing? • Dessert! Do Thai people eat dessert? • Uhmm… I want to try that but I'm not sure. What is inside of it? And many more... Our Tour will lead you to all the answers. The best way of getting to know all of this is going into the area — seeing, touching and trying.
