Full description

Explore the unique cuisine of Phuket, a fusion of Chinese and Malay cultures called Peranakan. Hit up the drool-worthy eating and drinking spots around Phuket Old Town with a guide, a place bestowed with UNESCO status for its culinary history.

Wrap your chopsticks around sticky handmade fresh spring rolls, wok-fried mee hoon (noodles), Hokkien noodles peppered with delicate prawn wontons, and char sui barbecue pork.

Try spiced chicken curry puffs, gaeng som fish curry, and forget about mainland staples on this gastronomic island journey. Learn from your guide about the city's Portuguese townhouses and Chinese temples. Find secret gems around the Old Town and hear about the amulets seen often around the city.

Walking Food Tour was amazing. Our host Nam was extremely knowledgeable and showed us the places where the locals eat and we were able to indulge in the delicious delicacies of Thailand as well as the delicious meals of the market places.Nam also made it lots of fun. Highly recommend but make sure you don’t eat for the day prior to the tour and try everything on offer. Thank you Nam❤️
