Full description

Explore why Phuket is considered one of Thailand's top foodie hotspots on a walking and tasting tour in the Old Town. Treat yourself to more than 14 different dishes as you make your way through the Central Market. Enjoy spiced rice cooked in banana leaves and traditional rotis.

Meet your guide in outside the famous Central Market and begin your walking tour. Weave through the streets and admire a Chinese temple from the outside. Start off with trying a Phuketian classic snack of spiced rice cooked in banana leaves. Back at the market, your guide will take you to a hidden little teashop which serves the local Burmese working community. Here, you'll try Burmese curries, crispy samosas, and other delights accompanied by naans freshly cooked in their wood-fired oven and washed down with sweet tea.

Go down the road to find an outdoor fresh fruit and vegetable market where your guide will explain the ingredients that go into Thai cuisine. Sample exotic fruits, juices, and other tasty morsels like deep-fried coconut balls and prawns cooked in banana leaves. Continue your culinary adventure with a bowl of rich Hokkien noodles from a little restaurant. Discover an indoor market famed for its fresh spring rolls filled with cured pork and topped with sweet sauce. Try their coconut pork skewers served with rich peanut satay and zingy ajat cucumber relish. Take a sweet twist as you help yourself to a particularly special Phuket-style crepe cooked over fiery coals. Cool down with a refreshing iced dessert and a sweet milky tea as you indulge on flaky rotis.

Return back to the Central Market with a full stomach. Your guide will help direct you back to your accommdations.

Such a wonderful experience! Our guide, Lucky, was so kind and jolly! We laughed a lot and ate many delicious meals. I had read great reviews before going to this but was still a bit weary of it, however, it really did live up to expectations! There’s a world of different cuisines and influences in Old Town Phuket and the Lucky really walked us through it all. The stops were all very local restaurants and stalls which makes the experience very pleasant. Not over commercialized in the slightest bit. We tried out a lot of different dishes, hard to squeeze in so many full meals in 4 hours but we took some take away as leftovers for dinner! Highly recommend! :)

Nam was a very insightful and good guide. Her english was great and she knew a lot about the city and the different food we ate. The food that we ate was very delicious. Youll get to try a lot of cuisines and meals. We recommend you arrive hungry or start meal sharing early on because it can be a bit much towards the end. Nam doesnt pressure you to finish or anything and you could always tell her if youd rather skip something or have a simpler version which was very thoughtful of her. Shes also a very funny and well informed woman which made the trip even better. I recommene you take it early on so you can revisit your favorite places!

Our guide was wonderful and the tour was so well thought out. She was so informative but also made it personal and she was constantly looking after us. It may seem a bit pricey considering the low cost of Thai food, but we were absolutely stuffed (come hungry) and the tour itself and guidance was well worth it. I loved every bit and appreciated how things were organized so that we even had a place to sit down at the end with our street dishes and cooled down in a beautiful café. One of the best experiences I had on my trip.
