1. Chiang Mai Lunchtime 20 Dish Food Tasting Tour
The tour kicks off at the grounds of Wat Lok Moli Temple in central Chiang Mai. Greet your guide and fellow guests and hop aboard the traditional rod deang truck and take a ride up to the best indoor produce market in Thailand. Your foodie guide will take you on a tour and in between learning about the ingredients that go into Northern Thai cuisine, you'll snack on plenty of different Northern Thai classics. Expect things like herbal sai oua sausage, pork crackling with a nam prik num dipping sauce, deep-fried tofu and traditional Thai-style crispy crepes. Once you've had your fill, it's back onboard for the short journey to one of Chiang Mai's most fascinating districts. The city's most famous dish is khao soi, a fragrant coconut curry topped with crispy noodles, shallots and lime. Head to a tucked away little joint that serves the very best in town. The truck leaves at this point and your guide will take you on a walking tour through the area. Stop for a Thai iced tea and find out how Thailand's favorite drink is made before dropping into a local semi-outdoor eatery which specialises in gai yang chicken. Watch as your spatchcocked beauty sizzles over a charcoal grill before its served with zingy papaya salad. The tour concludes at a little ice cream maker whose been churning out creamy desserts since the 1970s. The choice of flavour is up to you, but you're in Thailand, so you'd be disappointed if you stick to vanilla. Afterwards, say goodbye to your fellow guests. Your guide will help you find transport back to your hotel should you wish.
