The food tour in Chiang Mai was a solid tour of the local food culture. We started off at a small restaurant and ate a dish called Khao Soi which was phenomenal, then we visited a local market and learned about various fruits, vegetables, and other popular foods. The majority of the tour was spent in the market, which got a little tiring, but we were able to sample things such as beef pastry cakes, candies, sausage, and even silkworm, crickets, and some kind of brain. These were less dishes and more individual items, but still a good taste of Thailand. Finally we drank local tea and wrapped up the tour with some locally made ice cream. Overall the tour was good, just be ready for a lot of standing in the market with small bite-sized portions during that part of the tour.
We had a great day with our guide (Mouie?) today. She is very knowledgeable about the history of food in Thailand and enthusiastic in her delivery. There is a lot of food to eat in 4 hours, but you can choose to eat as little or much as you like. I recommend doing this tour at the beginning of your vacation if you can. It may make you more aware of the food possibilities during the rest of your vacation (including eating worms and insects if you choose to do so!)
