A Culture of Cuisine

Written by Leaders In Travel

Discover a few of our favorite culinary experiences throughout Thailand.

Bangkok and Beyond

Guided experiences offer an insider’s glimpse into Thai cuisine. Yaowarat, Bangkok’s Chinatown, is a culinary wonderland with treats like braised abalone and barbecue pork. Outside of Bangkok, the Amphawa Floating Market is overflowing with vendors rowing wooden boats laden with fresh fruits and dishes like Thai omelets cooked on the spot.

Chef for a Day in Northern Thailand

A hands-on cooking class is practically a rite of passage for foodies. The Dhara Dhevi Chiang Mai hotel, overlooking Suthep Mountain, houses the Dhara Dhevi Cooking Academy on its 60-acre property. Accompany your chef to a market, then unlock the secrets of Northern Thai cuisine as you prepare three courses.

Southern Surprises

Chinese influence in Southern Thailand’s Trang Province means you can savor Cantonese dim sum alongside spicy moo yang (roast pork) and Thai fish curry — seafood is a staple at the night market, given the archipelago’s place in the Andaman Sea. Countless coffee (kopi) shops serve strong brews that make an excellent accompaniment to spongy Trang cakes.
