    What to Expect
    After hotel pickup, start your food journey in Hua Hin with a traditional Thai breakfast of 

    jok moo (rice congee with pork), served with Thai coffee with condensed milk. Also try 

    ba thong gor (Thai doughnuts), before a casual stroll over to the Chat Chai fresh produce market to explore what the vendors have to offer. 

    The sights, sounds, and smells of the lively, century-old market are thoroughly enticing. Sample tropical fruits such as mangosteen, jackfruit, dragonfruit, longan, and rambutan. Taste food cooked or prepared fresh in and around the market — designed to feed hungry locals who love to graze all day. Afterward, take a leisurely walk to meet a couple of ladies who have been serving some of Hua Hin's best fried banana for over 70 years. These gals are the perfect photo opportunity.  

    Then we hit the streets of Hua Hin, tasting as we go, while learning about what makes Thai food so good. This walking tour covers about 1 mile (2.5 km) in 3.5 hours. Hear tips on choosing the best dishes and meet some of the street vendors who have been feeding locals and travelers for generations.  

    After a short walk you'll encounter a vendor selling southern Thai cuisine. Taste pungent flavors of spices such as turmeric while you try 

    kua kling (dried curry of minced pork), 

    moo wan (sweet pork), and 

    gaeng leuang gai (yellow chicken curry). Nearby, savor fragrant steamed duck called 

    pet paloe. Slightly further on, stop for 

    som tam (green papaya salad), which is practically a national dish. Discover 

    nam jim, the 

     dipping sauce that brings it all together, and taste six of the best with 

    khao niaw, or sticky rice. 

    You'll sample over 15 Thai snack foods, salads, fruits, desserts and drinks, along with a few surprises, with numerous rest breaks to recharge. Gain insider knowledge and return to your hotel with new culinary expertise.

    Note: Sometimes our regular vendors are closed on the day you have a tour booked, however we have other vendors that are equally as good in the event that there are closures.
