We Know Hua Hin

Known as the ‘City of Three Tastes’ (salty, sweet & sour), Phetchaburi has been named a UNESCO Creative City of Gastronomy due to its rich food heritage. Many local dishes have been handed down from generation to generation.

Chinese and Mon cuisine has melded with that of the royal courts of Rattanakosin and Ayutthaya to produce dishes truly unique to Phetchaburi.

This food tour is about exploring the flavours which have influenced the food culture in this province over time. Phetchaburi’s royal history has also had a huge impact on the style and taste of much of the food.

Come Ready to Taste!!

We start the tour in the Old Town Morning Market where we walk the streets, tasting as we go. We also explore the making of one of Thailand’s favourite noodles, Khanom Jeen. Next stop, we taste 2 very different types of noodle soups, with flavours which originated from this area. We also visit two sisters who have been making and selling amazing street sweets for over 60 years.

A trip to Phetchaburi is never complete without a visit to a palm sugar plantation. You will see the process from growing to picking to processing; we then taste the finished product. We will also see the small steamed cakes known Khanom Than being made and taste them as well.

We then head to a local restaurant where we taste local food made from ingredients which are plentiful in Phetchaburi.

You will taste over 15 different dishes on this full day tour, so get ready to eat!
