Experience the beauty of Eastern Thailand at Chanthaburi, a province blessed by the tropical sea to the south and green mountains to the north. One of the factors that makes the food here taste so good is the region’s abundance of volcanic soil, which is enriched with minerals, perfect for growing tropical fruits and all of those essential herbs that go into the local dishes. Thanks to the shoreline looking out into the Gulf of Thailand, it’s not surprising that seafood is another important ingredient that makes Chanthaburi’s food special.
During this trip, indulge in the richness the province has to offer through its authentic cuisine using local ingredients and cooked by local chefs. Many dishes here are one of a kind, and can not be found anywhere else in the country. There’s also the chance to learn more about ways of the laidback Chanthaburi lifestyle by walking through a fruit garden, sailing across an oyster farm, and cooking with fresh produce right where it’s grown!
Thai cuisine has been passed on from generation to generation since the ancient kingdom of Siam was first established. Over the years, the food has evolved along with the country, and today the dishes you’ll find in both restaurants and street-side vendors represent a variety of cultures – while still retaining the traditional cooking techniques and ingredients unique to Thailand.
This trip invites you to follow in the footsteps of our ancestors and discover the wisdom of Thai food that has been cherished by both locals and foreign visitors for so long. You’ll get to go behind-the-scenes to discover what’s happening in the kitchen, as well as learn about the complex recipes and how Thai people traditionally cook throughout the seasons. Understand how we pick out the rich ingredients in the many different parts in the country, taste the five unique flavours of Thai cuisine (sour, salty, spicy, sweet and savoury), and experience true Thai culture through participating in authentic cooking workshops.
