Street Food for all your senses in Phuket Town - Half Day
You will be picked up at 07:00. Experience the delights of Thai food and get a closer look at local culinary culture on this Phuket street food tour.
Spend the morning walking along the smaller side streets of the city. Stop at a variety of food stalls, some selling fresh fruits and other produce while others sell freshly cooked snacks and noodle dishes. Many of the food stalls have been run by the same family for generations and there will be a chance to chat with some of these shop owners.
Start with a dim sum breakfast, washed down with a cup of locally-grown coffee. Visit a local shop to learn about the concept of khao kaeng, Thai food served on trays. Then explore a stall piled high with colourful curry pastes and learn about their different uses.
Continue into the old town, stopping in at the informative Post Office Museum for a short visit. Then return to the food trail stopping to taste items like the Malaysian-influenced roti breads and Chinese-style Hokkien noodles. Learn about the origins of these foods which were introduced by immigrants in the 19th century.
Round out the day with some typical southern Thai snacks including a local rendition of a crepe and exotic tropical fruits.
With a full belly and camera-full of fabulous food images, return to the hotel. (L)
