Highlights
Taste your way through Chiang Mai’s night market with a guide
Get tips on ordering and street food etiquette
Ride like a local on a “songthaew,” a Thai covered truck
Includes eight samples for a satisfying and diverse dinner
What to expect
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.

A true treasured memory!
Albeit a brief backpacking tour, doing it with an 18 month old child is hard work. We had never booked on to a guided tour before but after the chaos of Bangkok with a toddler, we decided to book on to the night market tour with Jay when we got to Chiang Mai.
We’d spent most of a week passing our child between us while eating, or stopping him running round restaurants because it was all so exciting. I hadn’t actually eaten hot food in the best part of a week.

Not only did Jay introduce us to some fantastic food in Chiang Mai, he helped to entertain our little one while we ate, took him round the market, introduced him to people and gave him some experiences that very few British children will ever experience. We have some wonderful photos and amazing memories that we won’t ever forget. We will definitely be back at some point in the future. Thank you Jay, you’re the best.

Invaluable insight into Thai food
Mar 2020 • Couples
Our guide spoke very good English and was full of information about the history of the city as well as the food markets and individual dishes. A special dish of Yum Gai Saep, a version of the crispy chicken with salad prepared to a recipe known only to one wonderful lady at the first market, was a revelation. We would never have tried such a vast variety of dishes if we hadn’t gone for tris tour. Good stuff!

Great food experience
Feb 2020
Highly recommended for a dive into the vibrant Chiang Mai Street Food scene. Jay was an excellent guide and host, whisking us around several locations. The food was fabulous and very plentiful in quantity and variety. Jay was very helpful in guiding us in what to look out in good street food. We left very satisfield and full. Great evening out.

Great food, great guide.
We had a group of 8 and at each station would get to know someone new and share our travel experience. Some foodies and some just learning about variety of Thai food.
Guide very helpful and helped us understand what to avoid as well as what was one of a kind. Highly recommend.

Highly recommend doing this at the start of your trip to Thailand. So many tastings!! Great way to find out about the area and what locals eat. Go hungry you will leave full. Water is provided as well as info on food and some phrases in Thai. Really enjoyed our tour visiting the night markets of chiang mai. You’ll eat from the cowboy hat lady that Anthony burdain visited also!

Come hungry, leave happy
Sonny was an amazing tour guide and the food was exceptional. You even get little introduction into ordering food in Thai which will help when you go back to all the delicious street vendors by yourself. Thank you for the great time Sonny!

Excellent food tour
Excellent food tour hosted by the very friendly and informative guide Sonny. Mostly around the southgate area but were driven to several areas. Sampled around 20 different foods ranging from Khao Soi, fried morning glory, mango with sticky rice and more .only 5 of us on the trip so travelled in a single car. Highly recommended.

Fantastic intro to Thai street foods
Jan 2020
Our guide (can't remember his name) picked us up in his comfortable 4 wheel drive, then picked up others before heading to the markets. We went through the closed market and he explained how it works, then to the first street market outside. He got us little tables and stools to sit at and ordered the foods which we all tasted while he explained why they are Thai and typical in Chiang Mai. We moved along to try some whiskey, then a couple of other stalls before returning to the car and going to the second market. Each time we sat in a makeshift spot with chairs or a table or stools behind the stalls. I think it took a couple of hours. The guide was very good, friendly, knowledgeable, and I felt like it was a very worthwhile tour and very good value. My wife and I are mid sixties from Australia, we were with an American guy similar age and his wife and adult daughter plus a 30yr old American engineer. We had nothing in common at first, but the nature of the tour meant that we all got along well. We were all full to the brim at the end so don't eat anything before the tour. As the dishes were brought to us we got the history behind them and found out more about Thailand and the people. I would recommend this at the beginning of any holiday there to familiarise with the food options and learn about the local culture.

My wife & I thorough enjoyed this tour. Our guide Boon was excellent. He knew the markets very well and was knowledgable about all the different types of cuisine. There was certainly no shortage of food either, make sure to go hungry! We went on a Tuesday night and were joined by two other couples. Highly recommend!
