Full description

Explore Phuket Old Town's UNESCO awarded heritage through its exciting street food and eclectic art scene. Participate in a cooking demonstration and document your culinary adventure through plenty of photos.

After getting picked up from your hotel, you'll pass by popular beaches on the way to Phuket City, a port town that has been a melting pot of various cultures for centuries. European, Arab, Indian, and Chinese influence have shaped the local culture, cuisine, and architecture.

Stop at the famous Wat Chalong Buddhist temple where locals come to pray. See sacred relics and admire the ornate architecture in this peaceful setting.

Meet your local host who will teach you how to prepare Thai recipes that you will be able to recreate back at home. After working up an appetite, sit down to lunch with the rest of the group.

Visit Art Street, a narrow lane that houses Sino-Portughese style shops, which sell paintings, home decor, hats, and other handmade crafts. You may even find a few inexpensive souvenirs along the way.

Venture to a neighborhood that showcases cryptic street art and wall graffiti painted by famous local and international artists as part of Phuket's Food, Art, Town initiative. Delight in hearing your guide explain the hidden messages behind these art depictions.

You'll want to snap a few photos against the many colorful backdrops you pass by to share with friends and followers.

Throughout the day, your guide will teach you the names of exotic-looking dishes, and you can choose to purchase street food to taste along the way.

Ascend Rang Hill to take in breathtaking views of the city and more great photo opportunities.

Before heading back to the hotel, you'll have time to try a dessert, such as fried ice cream, sticky mango with rice, or a coconut delicacy to end the tour on a sweet note.
