Detailed Description

Your culinary tour across Thailand will begin in the heart of Northern Thailand: Chiang Mai. The popular destination is famous for its exquisite take on Lanna food and Northern Thai food, both of which bring mouthwatering flavors to the table. You will discover the aromatic fragrances of celebrated dishes and tuck into sumptuous delicacies that are uncommon to other parts of the country. You will uncover immaculate meals as you tour the vibrant city streets and settle in at premier restaurants that are complete with panoramic views of the surreal landscape. Afterward, you will venture to Chiang Rai for a truly authentic taste of Thailand. Long-established ethnic hill tribes call this less-traveled destination home, and you will spend time connecting with these friendly people. Here, you will share in their traditional eating experience and learn more about the culinary culture.

Your trip will lead you to Bangkok, where the scents of frying food waft through the streets. The capital boasts a rich collection of 5-star hotels, and there are an abundance of captivating cultural activities on offer. You will witness the golden temples that glitter under the sunshine before touring the Michelin-starred restaurants, where revered chefs serve remarkable takes on timeless classics. From Bangkok, you will make your way to the luxurious, seaside district of Hua Hin. Intended as a luxurious getaway for locals and foreigners, there is a class to this destination that is rarely rivaled. You will enjoy the stunning, seaside settings from your immaculate accommodation and delve into the sumptuous seafood for which this location is famous.

Phuket is the next destination on your immersive and gastronomic expedition, and the immense island sets the bar exceptionally high. You will transfer via luxury speedboat to the secluded beaches and bask the warm, crystal-clear waters. Your dining experiences will leave nothing to be desired as you tuck into coveted meals throughout your stay. Krabi, which is only a short way from Phuket, is another luxurious destination where the pearly white beaches and delightful delicacies are highlights. Here, you will uncover the age-old methods that are behind beloved dishes at a prestigious culinary school. Finally, you will arrive on the shores of Koh Lanta, which is a desirable but more secluded island in the Andaman Sea. Here, you will bask in your final tastes of Thailand as you visit premier restaurants across the island and capture lifelong memories against the stunning seaside and limestone backdrop.
