A Bangkok food tour is the perfect way to experience quintessential Thai gastronomy. The Gastronomic Trail is a comprehensive foodie experience that covers every aspect of Thai gastronomy through Bangkok food, from purchasing ingredients at a local market, fruit carving, and tasting street food to Thai cooking demonstrations and a cooking class. Taste, smell, see, hear, and touch local food to awaken and invigorate your senses in this exploration of Thai culinary traditions.

The gastronomic race comprises a complete Bangkok food tour broken into five challenges, each of which will either give participants a cooking lesson and teach them to cook like a Thai or allow them to taste and recognize distinctly Thai flavors.

Different activities, different locations

The first task involves participants heading to local food markets to shop like the locals do. This process includes finding the necessary ingredients and bartering with local stall-keeps.

Next, the experience takes you to a Som tam (papaya salad) shop, where you will receive a cooking lesson on Thai gastronomy.

The third stop on your local gastronomy tour will take you on a bike ride to the beautiful botanical gardens where you will experience fruit carving, a Thai specialty, with a local expert.

At your next stop, the senses will be ignited when you are blindfolded by your host and asked to identify different ingredients by taste alone.

Finally, participants' last task on their food tour will be to sample local cooking by feasting on several Thai dishes in a local food court and enjoy a well-deserved repose from the day's local market activities.

Meeting point is at the entrance of the food court of Suan Plern Market, located on Rama 4 Road.Both winners and losers of this Bangkok food race will receive awards at the end of the competition in a fun and animated end-of-the-day presentation at lunch.
