Overview

Explore Chiang Mai’s colorful night markets with a local on a 2.5-hour evening food tour of the city on foot and by songthaew. Bring an appetite for this small-group Chaing Mai food tour, which includes samples of eight market foods, with pickup and drop-off at your Chiang Mai hotel.
  • 2.5-hour culinary tour of Chiang Mai
  • Visit two night markets with a local
  • Sample at least 8 dishes
  • Learn to order and eat Thai street food
  • Hotel pickup and drop-off included
  • Vegetarian meal option available
Begin with pickup at your Chiang Mai accommodations, then meet a small group of fellow foodies—for a more personal experience, the group size is limited to eight people.
Follow a route that will take you to two evening markets, where you’ll try a wide variety of dishes, from kannom jin Chinese noodles to northern Thai specialties, coconut dumplings, stewed pork, and sweets. This is the perfect time to learn some basic phrases with help from a local, then practice ordering dishes in Thai. The tour includes a leaflet that explains the most popular street food dishes, so you can keep exploring Thai markets on your own.
With a small group and an experienced guide, you’ll have plenty of time to ask questions about unfamiliar foods, ingredients, and how to eat some of Thailand’s more exotic dishes. After you’ve tasted your way through both markets, you’ll hop a songthaew for the return trip to your accommodations, where this tour concludes.

This is a must experience tour for foodies even for people who are not so adventurous the guide is excellent he asks what level of spice ness you would like, we visited many different sellers and tried many different dishes inc soup and sweets and then some local rice whisky to finish. Collection and drop off at your hotel was also included. We done the tour on our first night in Chiang Mai which was an additional benefit as we were set for the rest of our visit.Really recommend this tour

Our guide was Son(sp)and our group only consisted of 3 people so it was very personalized and attentive. He taught us how to order and we ate some great food from stalls we would normally pass over. The mango sticky rice will be the best version you will ever have in Thailand! We had so much food so please go hungry because you will leave bursting at the seams. Highly recommend this tour!!

Tour was excellent and a nice way to learn more about the food traditions in Chiang Mai. We saw two markets, tried so much food, and it was all delicious. I wish I had taken this tour earlier during my trip to Chiang Mai as it would have been helpful! We learned some words/phrases, took our own attempts at ordering in Thai, and had a great time getting to know each other. There were definitely dishes I would not have thought to try without having taken this tour! It was also nice because the group was small - just 3 of us plus our guide and all of us were solo travelers. Really appreciated that!

What a great tour. We booked this tour to get a flavor for what kinds of foods are best to get from the night market street vendors and to pick up some of the local language to order food. Our tour guide Boon was a fun guy and we had a great time. There was certainly an abundance of food to try and oh so many varieties of dishes. He picked us up and started off by teaching us a couple of Thai phrases and how to order food. When we arrived at the market he showed us some of the ingredients used and sat us down so we could enjoy tasting things. He made sure to accommodate everyone's taste to the extent he could including spice level, allergies, likes and dislikes. We tried at least 15 kinds of foods and then deserts at two markets and several stalls. All of it was wonderful. If you take this tour which I highly recommend I suggest you come on an empty stomach and with a big appetite so you can try all the various foods. Boon also made sure we had something to drink at all times during the tour. This is a must do tour.

This tour was awesome. I don't remember our guide's name but he was great and very friendly. DO NOT EAT before this tour. There is enough for dinner and then some. We also got to go behind some of the stalls and help make the food. Would highly recommend.

This was an amazing tour! My guide, Sonny, provided such a thorough explanation of the different types of foods and delicacies in Chiang Mai. He was engaging and informative and let us experience so many different types of dishes, from appetizers to main courses to desserts. We samples probably a dozen different types of dishes in two hours, and even though it was all served family style, I was full by the end. I had to push myself to even try the dessert because I was so full! Definitely go on this tour with an empty stomach!

Small group tour taken to various market areas not only to sample the local food but also a light hearted approach to ordering food in Thai. Our guide was very genuine providing information regarding the food consumed but also some of the history of Chiang Mai. Very enjoyable evening.
