Don’t leave the fate of your taste buds to chance… go straight for Bangkok’s culinary jugular. Join Chef Nutth on his epic nightly food feast around the city’s maze of alleys to taste hidden street eats you’d never find alone. Trust us, the pad Thai on Khao San Road is nothing to write home about. Gorge on lemongrass infused mussels, rich peanut satay with grilled coconut chicken and ajat relish, the finest Thai curry in the city and over a dozen more lip-smackingly good things at some of the best places to eat in Bangkok.

Kicking off as the afternoon cools, eat your way through the labyrinth of backstreets on the best Bangkok Chinatown food tour, ending on a sugary high along the main strip of Yaowarat Road in all its neon glory.

Access Trips: Thai Culinary Tour – Thailand

Come with us to Thailand to experience an exotic gem, a country where the architecture and artistry are matched only by the friendliness of the people; where every flavor is more pleasing than the last; and where Buddhism binds the culture seamlessly. On our Thai culinary tour, we’ll head from bustling Bangkok to our relaxing riverside resort in Thaton, and finally, end up at the charming northern city of Chiang Mai. You’ll learn to cook incredible Thai food, explore the fascinating Thai culture, and enjoy the outdoors, including a trek through the jungle on an elephant! And at the end of each day you will relax in sumptuous boutique hotels.

Thai food is an exceptional combination of exotic sweet, tangy and peppery spices, fresh ingredients, and stunning presentation, and most who try it are hooked for life. Traditional Thai cooking is taught at home. Every mother is a “teacher” and family recipes are passed down from one generation to the next. Meals are always shared family affairs and are an important part of Thai cultural heritage. Therefore, our Bangkok and Chiang Mai cooking schools are set in home-style learning environments, with open-air, Thai-style kitchens, surrounded by aromatic herb gardens, orchards and rice paddies. Our instructors will pass down their family recipes, as they teach us about ingredient selection, combining spices into curry pastes, and preparation of full meals of Thai cuisine. And of course, at the end of our lesson, we will enjoy the incredible feast we have prepared.
