Embark on a short and sweet walking tour of the best of Chiang Mai’s food scene. Discover some of the city’s most delicious eateries from markets to local-favorite restaurants. Choose from multiple start times for a time that suits you. Meet up with your friendly guide at Thapae Gate to begin the walking tour. Work up an appetite with a stroll along the handicraft street to see crafts made by local vendors. Your first stop of the day is Guay Jub Chang Moi Tat Mai to try their famous guay jub, a rolled rice noodle dish. After slurping on some noodles, head to Warorot Market, where you can find delicious snacks, produce, clothes, and more. For a sweet treat, visit a local-favorite stall for some mango sticky rice. From there, visit Go Neng Restaurant to taste a Chinese specialty of oddly-shaped deep-fried dough, pa tong go. Taste this popular snack before heading to your last stop. The last stop is another stall where you’ll sample Thai steamed rice. Try the Lung Khajohn Wat Ket sweet steamed rice dumplings. Then, head to the Ton Lamyai Flower Market for the end of the tour.

If you would like to stick to this itinerary, it is highly recommended to book the morning slots.

Lovely tour! Was so nice to be brought around to all of the locals’ shopping and food areas of Chiang Mai. Our guide Nancy was very knowledgeable and fantastic! Highly recommend when in Chiang Mai to scope out the best restaurants and foods for your time here.

Great guide! Great experience! Elephants are well cared for and it was immersive. Not a lot of lecturing but enough of an intro to know the animals and how the day was going to go. Excellent!
