Phuket Old Town Food Tour

There is no question about it - Southern Thai food is sublime. The melting pot of Thai, Malay, Burmese and Chinese cuisine has led to Phuket being crowned 'Thailand City of Gastronomy 2017' by UNESCO. 

Join Pema on her adventurous lunchtime Phuket food tour to discover the secrets behind the island's flavours and spots known only to locals. Mop up Burmese curries with wood-fired naans and slurp on chai at a tucked away Burmese teashop, work a pair of chopsticks over the best bowl of Hoikken noodles in Phuket Town and indulge in grilled pork dripping with rich peanut satay along with more than a dozen more dishes. 

Trust us, you're not going to try food like this anywhere else on Phuket and while it's tempting to be a beach bum, you'd be one sandwich short of a picnic not to join Pema's movable feast.

**Street food vendors take time off too, so we can’t promise every Phuket food tour will be the same, but fear not, the night will always be packed with good stuff. 

"Pema is a Phuket Island native with a big smile and deep love of Southern Thai food and culture. She loves meeting new people and showing them the best places to eat in Phuket, especially the hidden little eateries tourists overlook. Join her on a Phuket food tour that'll whet your appetite for all things Thai. "

Availability and Booking


I have never joined a food tour like this before. I hadn’t expected so much great information about food and Phuket history from our local guide Pema. The tour encapsulated the best of Phuket's rich food history, touching on the different regional influences that have shaped the unique cuisine of this region. At the same time our guide Pema made us feel incredibly welcome, explaining all the different dishes as we went along, and encouraging us to try different things. I can wholeheartedly recommend this tour to anyone.
