Full description

Are you ready to explore why Phuket is often considered one of Thailand's top foodie hotspots? Greet your guide in the cool of the morning at 10:00 am outside the city's famous central market and begin your walking tour weaving your way through the streets passing a glorious Chinese temple en route to try a Phuketian classic snack of spiced rice cooked in banana leaves.

Back down 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. Just down the road is a fine outdoor fresh fruit and vegetable market where your guide will explain the ingredients that go into Thai cuisine and sample exotic fruits, juices, and other tasty morsels like deep-fried coconut balls and prawns cooked in banana leaves.

Continue on your culinary adventure by working your way over a bowl of rich Hokkien noodles with a pair of chopsticks (don't worry, cutlery's available too) from a little restaurant that's been serving up the good stuff for decades. Don't worry, it's not over yet. Your guide will take you to a local indoor market famed for its fresh spring rolls filled with cured pork and topped with sweet sauce and pickles and coconut pork skewers served with rich peanut satay and zingy ajat cucumber relish.



It's unthinkable not to visit Phuket Old Town without delving into the sweets. Your guide will take you for a particularly special Phuket-style crepe cooked over fiery coals, a refreshing and vivid iced dessert and finishing on sweet milky tea and flaky rotis at a joint that's been knocking them out for years. Return back to the central market where the tour ends. You'll return back to your hotel with a deeper understanding of Phuketian cuisine. Be warned, the food on the rest of your vacation will now solely disappoint.

Great fun!

Pema was our guide and she went above and beyond on this tour for us. She has a huge knowledge of the local area, food and it’s history. We asked many questions and she was happy to answer all of them. The food we tried was great, some of our group was slightly concerned about what the cleanliness of these restaurants will be but we had noting to worry about. Everything was delicious (even tho a bit strange at times..) from the young tea leave salad (yummy!) to the pigs ears (requires taste..) and crepes. Our day was filled with ooh’s and aah’s, wow’s and lots and lots of laughs! We couldn’t recommend this tour highly enough. Thanks for a great day Pema! •reviewed by Sue – South Africa

Pema is the best guide ever. We will always remember old town because of her passion and excitement of her town. She is one of a kind. Thank you for giving us a personal tour of your beautiful city from the history, to the food, and of course the culture of the people. •reviewed by Seth – United States
