PHUKET FOOD TOUR - There's a reason why Thailand's biggest island was crowned with UNESCO gastronomy status - for centuries this trading outpost has absorbed spices and techniques from far-fetched lands. This isn’t a place for Thai green curry or spicy som tum salads; that’s mainland fare.
If you truly want to understand what makes Phuket’s culinary scene tick, you’d be one wonton short of a noodle bowl not to drag yourself off the island’s sun-kissed beaches and join us on our four-hour Phuket food tour feast around the back alleys and Sino-Thai streets of old Phuket Town, ground zero for island eating.
On our Phuket food tour you’ll be wrapping your chopsticks around 14+ tastes: sticky handmade fresh spring rolls, wok-fried mee hoon, Hokkien noodles peppered with delicate prawn wontons and char sui barbecue pork, leaf-wrapped miang kham bites, spiced chicken curry puffs, gaeng som fish curry along with plenty more culinary surprises to boot.
We promise that when our Phuket food tour comes to its sweet conclusion you’ll have a much better appreciation of what the island flavours are all about. Don’t worry, the palm-fringed beaches will still be there - we just can’t guarantee you’ll still want to eat your hotel beach bar's Thai green curry any longer.

Our Phuket food tours have been voted the #1 culinary experience on the island. Why? Because our Phuket food tours don’t focus on ‘Thai’ cooking - it’s a journey through Baba and Perankan food history where you’ll peel back the layers of Chinese, Malay influences on the island’s gastronomy, learn about the ingredients and history of the dishes and find out why it’s been granted UNESCO World Heritage intangible status for it’s food. Slip on some comfortable shoes, loosen up a few notches of the belt buckle and get set for this moveable island feast.
