Tour guide:

Pema

Pema is a Phuket Island native with a big smile and deep love of Southern Thai food and culture. She loves meeting new people and showing them her town, especially the hidden little eateries tourists overlook. Join her on a Phuket food tour that'll whet your appetite for all things Thai.  

There is no question about it - Southern Thai food is sublime. The melting pot of Thai, Malay, Burmese and Chinese cuisine has led to Phuket being crowned 'Thailand City of Gastronomy 2017' by UNESCO. When Phuketians whip up a storm in the kitchen, you know it's going to be good. 

Join Pema on her lunchtime Phuket food tour to discover the secrets behind the island's flavours. Mop up Burmese curries with wood-fired naans and slurp on chai at a tucked away Burmese teashop, work a pair of chopsticks over the best bowl of Hoikken noodles in Phuket Town and indulge in grilled pork dripping with rich peanut satay. 

Think that's it? Not a chance. Along the way you'll delve into banana wrapped good things, discover the joy of fresh spring rolls, gorge on sweet exotic fruits, watch Phuket-style crepes being made over fiery coals and explore the streets of the old town with vivid iced desserts. Finish the tour at a Southern Thai roti joint whose legendary owner has been knocking out these flaky treats for years. 

Trust us, you're not going to try food like this anywhere else on Phuket and while it's tempting to be a beach bum, you'd be one sandwich short of a picnic not to join Pema's movable feast.

**Street food vendors take time off too, so we can’t promise every tour will be the same, but fear not, the night will always be packed with good stuff.

What to expect

This tour is designed for adventurous eaters with an interest in discovering the food locals eat. It’s a walking tour, but the pace is gentle, the terrain flat and there are plenty of rest (eating) stops along the way.
