Phuket’s Night Food Testing And Culture Walk

A Cultural and Culinary
walk through Phuket Town

Thailand for foodies is a match made in heaven and Phuket is no exception. An evening tour
where you will eat, drink and try the pinnacle of local cuisine nearby the colonial-style
streets of its old centre with nothing but authenticity along the way.

WHY THIS TOUR?

With primary focus on its variety of beaches and surrounding islands, Phuket’s Old Town often is left aside. A Sino-Portuguese heritage hub since tin mining was the main source of income for Thailand’s largest island, the administrative capital has kept a pretty low profile during the tourism boom, keeping its couleur locale well preserved. Those visiting Phuket City will immediately notice these Sino-Portuguese signs with many of its buildings being properly renovated to preserve the style of old town.

For the true foodie under us, the streets and alleys are a mecca for gastronomical glory, spiced up when the office doors are closed for the day and the streets are filled with people, looking for a place to wine, dine and socialize. Culture and food – a mix that is bound to have both your taste buds and cultural interests enriched with a blissful evening tour.

TRAIL ITINERARY

A Cultural and Culinary walk through Phuket Town

18:00 - 20:30

Guests are picked up from their Phuket hotel by your guide and driver at the end of the afternoon. Depending on the location of your hotel and traffic conditions, transfer to Phuket Town will take between 30 minutes to 1 hour where you will make your first stop at a favourite hand out and food spot nearby the sea.Sapan Hin is a well-known public park where families and friends gather around for an evening of activities and exploring the culinary highlights, served from kerbside parked carts.

The first samples of Phuket specialities are here for you to try, with lots of grilled and deep fried making its way from the BBQ to the stomach in no time. ‘Hor Mok’ is a tradition here – a Thai curried fish custard that captures the essence of traditional Phuket food alongside the well-known spicy papaya salad, sweets and seasonal fruits. The Chinese have left their stamp on Phuket, too and an example of one of their spiritual marvels is the Giew Tain Geng shrine, one that takes centre stage during the annual Vegetarian festival and is located nearby Sapan Hin.

The walk for food goodies goes on. O-Tao is another stable dish, originating from Phuket and is commonly served boiling hot. A combination of fried oysters with effs, flour, bean sprouts and taro roots has been long a favourite among the locals and guests will  certain agree with this after taking a bite. No meal without dessert and Phuket residents shares the desire for something sweet after their meal – from roti pancakes to local desserts, the evening ends with walking your way through the Phuket streets before heading back to your Phuket hotel.
