Thailand Vegan Food Adventure

From £845 for 8 days
Trip Overview

Home to some of the world’s most tantalising, spicy and flavourful cuisine, Thailand offers culinary adventures to delight all kinds of epicureans. Join this special vegan-friendly edition of our Thailand Real Food Adventure and experience the legendary cuisine of South East Asia for yourself. Jump into the kitchen with local Thai masters who do amazing things with tofu, mushroom, sticky rice, bamboo and spice, taking home a few new kitchen tricks of your own. While Bangkok’s street food is the perfect extension of the city’s hectic atmosphere – lively, fiery, bright, unique and sometimes just downright sweet – Chiang Mai showcases the Thai food of the north – a milder, Myanmar-influenced side of the national nosh. These vegan-friendly departures may be limited, so strike while the burners are hot.

Trip Highlights

•   Thailand is a country that does amazing things with the most elemental ingredients – from mushroom and tofu to bamboo, beans and coconut cream – and the diversity of vegan dishes on offer is a pleasant surprise

•   Bangkok’s Chinatown is a revelation, but those in the know head out of town for next-level street-food experiences. Discover a (literal) railway market at Mae Klong, enjoy a palm sugar demonstration at Tha Kha floating market, and peruse a veritable vegan smorgasbord at riverside Kanchanaburi

•   See everyday life from the Thai perspective and prepare a wide range of vegan cuisine under the guidance of Aoi, your Chiang Mai homestay host. Tuck into the likes of wing bean salad, tofu red curry, sweet sticky rice and traditional Thai banana cake

•   Get ready for a hands-on masterclass in vegan Central Thai cuisine in Kanchanaburi, browsing the market to pick fresh produce before feasting on your own creations

Itinerary & Notes
Sa-wat dee! Welcome to Bangkok. Thailand's bustling capital is famous for its tuk tuks, khlong boats and roadside vendors serving up mouth-watering street food – some of the best in the world. Your adventure begins with a welcome meeting at 6 pm on Day 1, the details for which can be found at the hotel reception. Bangkok has a lot to offer those with time to explore – from Chinatown to the Grand Palace to the sleepy canals – so perhaps arrive a day or so early to take advantage. This evening the group can dine at Thamna, a small local restaurant making excellent use of ingredients like mushroom and tofu. Don't miss the grilled mushroom balls with cashew nuts.
