About your tour

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.

Why this tour is awesome

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.

If you can drag yourself away from Phuket's gorgeous beaches, you'll not only dive into the rich cuisine, but learn about the history and culture of Old Town Phuket.
