Hmm...we can’t seem to find this place. Please check the spelling, or choose another location.

7:00 PM
We offer complimentary hotel pick-up & drop-off from anywhere within the Old City and the surrounding areas. There will be additional charges for any hotel pick-ups which are located away from Chiang Mai (~10-15km away).
Begin with pickup at your Chiang Mai accommodations, then meet a small group of fellow foodies—for a more personal experience, the group size is limited to eight people.

Follow a route that will take you to two evening markets, where you’ll try a wide variety of dishes, from kannom jin Chinese noodles to northern Thai specialties, coconut dumplings, stewed pork, and sweets. This is the perfect time to learn some basic phrases with help from a local, then practice ordering dishes in Thai. The tour includes a leaflet that explains the most popular street food dishes, so you can keep exploring Thai markets on your own.

With a small group and an experienced guide, you’ll have plenty of time to ask questions about unfamiliar foods, ingredients, and how to eat some of Thailand’s more exotic dishes. After you’ve tasted your way through both markets, you’ll hop a songthaew for the return trip to your accommodations, where this tour concludes.

Our tour guide Coco was amazing, he showed us the best places to eat traditional Thai food and explained each meal and how it is made. He taught us how to order in Thai and gave us some notes on all the traditional thai foods. We had so much food, we were so full by the end but every dish was as amazing as the last and that's saying something coming from a foodie. An absolute must if you are visiting Chiang Mai, I highly recommend it, you will not be disappointed.

Sunny is the best food tour guide in Chiang Mai! He took us to north and South Gate food market? Taught us how to order, what to order, and gave us incredible culinary adventures. Things I wouldn’t have thought to order, became our favorites. Flavor packed with flavor and more flavor. He was soooo attentive, so funny, so clearly loving what he does- just the best food experience. We ended up going straight back the next evening to eat our favorites from the tour! Thank you sunny!!!

A night of taste bud delight

My tour guide, Jay, picked me up right on schedule and we proceeded out to various food outlets to sample numerous northern Thai dishes. Jay is thorough and his explanations of the food groups and the ingredients that go into each sampling. He interacts with the cooks and encouraged me to take many pictures and videos of the creative cooking process. Jay is also very familiar with each of the cooks and it was fun to see them banter back-and-forth. You will be stuffed with delicious the most delicious Northern Thai food! I would highly recommend Jay and the street food tour and wouldn’t mind doing it again. Thank you Jay!

Great Introduction to Thai Food
Toya_T

I took this food tour the first night I arrived in Thailand. And although I was exhausted from traveling, I am happy this was my first introduction to Chiang Mai and Thai food and culture. The tour guide picked me up exactly at the time they told me. He was very friendly and knowledgeable about the two street food markets we visited. He clearly explained the food and gave us all a handy printout with common thai food and thai phrases, including how to say thank you and how to order food in thai. Some people in my group got a chance to order our food in Thai. The food was absolutely delicious. We got a wide array of thai dishes, include soups, noodle dishes, and desserts. At the end, I was satisified and full. The next night I used I returned to one of the markets and ordered some of the food I had the night before on the street food tour. Highly recommend this tour.

Really good fun trip. Excellent way to experience good street food and Jay was a brilliant guide checking who wanted spicy and who didn’t. We finished the evening with very full tummies!!
