If you are searching for an alternative to a cooking school in Hua Hin, this might just be what you are looking for.
After being picked up from your hotel, we start your food journey by eating a traditional Thai breakfast served with Café Boran. After eating, we will casually stroll over to Hua Hin's Chat Chai morning fresh produce market to explore and experience what they have to offer. The sights, sounds and smells of this lively, almost 100 year old market of Hua Hin are thoroughly enticing. At the market, we will sample exotic fruits and look at a myriad of unusual vegetables, many available mainly in SE Asia. We will sample food cooked or prepared fresh; food that is designed to feed the hungry locals who love to graze all day.
Outside the market, we meet vendors selling freshly prepared food and sample as we go.
After the Chat Chai market, we stroll a short distance to discover more street food, walking through the streets of Hua Hin tasting all the while, but also learning about what makes street food so good, with tips on choosing the best food. Some of the street vendors have been feeding locals and travellers for generations. We will meet them and see why!
