Eat where the locals eat. This tour is about showcasing local food heroes at venues not on the tourist maps.

On this 3½ hour tour, your guide will take you off the beaten track. You will try some amazing tasting Thai food in humble surrounds. You will be eating with locals, which just backs up the age-old adage that ‘locals always know where to find the best food in town‘.

For this tour, you will experience venues that have a high standard of food hygiene, are family-run with family recipes, yet offer truly 5 star flavours without a 5 star appearance.

Your tour begins where locals come to satisfy their appetites to start the day. Under this traditional 2 story Thai house there are 3 generations working. There is a steady stream of hungry customers dropping by for take away, or sitting at the tables slurping freshly made noodles, all this with fresh Nam Prik Pao: Chilli Jam, taking pride of place. It’s in no way fancy, but there’s a reason for its popularity; super tasty food with fast and friendly service!

You will stop at a local restaurant to taste dishes from the Isaan region, the NorthEast. This region of Thailand is known for their spicy salads and freshly grilled meats.

We also pay a visit to a very local eatery located just opposite Glai Kangwon Palace. This restaurant exclusively serves Northern Thai cuisine. True to the palace’s translated name, Far From Worries, you have no worries to come to try two of the North’s most famous dishes in Khao Soi: Chiang Mai Noodles and Sai Ua: Chiang Mai Sausage. It’s not so easy to find great Northern food outside of the North of Thailand, but here, this woman has been serving up great Northern food for over 20 years. You’ll taste why she has been going so long.

We also squeeze in a stop at a popular area for daytime street food before finishing at a garden restaurant to taste some classic dishes from the central region of Thailand.

This tour is great for those who are new to Thailand or love seeing local life. All the food on this tour is a lower to medium spice, though very delicious. Our tour guides are very good at finding great food for you to try and ordering more spicy dishes if you like it that way.

Note: Sometimes our regular vendors are closed on the day you have a tour booked, however we have other vendors that are equally as good in the event that there are closures.

As the Thai sun climbs high in the city, your 'Eat Like A Local' tour commences under a traditional two-story Thai house where you'll find yourself immersed in the morning hustle and bustle of a family-run eatery where the irresistible scent of freshly made noodles and the tangy-sweet aroma of Nam Prik Pao - Chilli Jam - fill the air. The warmth of the friendly service and the heartfelt laughter of three generations working together is as nourishing as the food. As you savour each spoonful, you'll find yourself swept up in the delight and satisfaction that only home-cooked food can provide. Each slurp is a testament to the family's cherished recipes, a burst of familiar comfort that touches your heart and fills your stomach.

Venturing further, you'll explore the lesser-known delights of Isaan, tasting spicy salads and grilled meats that set your taste buds dancing. The sizzle of the grills, the crunch of fresh greens, the burst of spices; it's a sensory adventure that captures the region's soul. Then, we'll whisk you away to a hidden gem near Glai Gangwon Palace, where you'll sample the distinct flavours of Khao Soi - Chiang Mai Noodles and Sai Ua - Chiang Mai Sausage. Every bite here is a journey, an exploration of a cuisine that isn't so easily found outside the North of Thailand. The complex interplay of textures and flavours – creamy, spicy, tangy, crunchy – will make you appreciate the culinary heritage that's been preserved and nurtured for over 20 years. As the day unfolds, from the bustling street food markets to the tranquility of a garden restaurant, you'll feel a deep connection to the local life and the delicious dishes that tell Thailand's rich culinary tale.
