Itinerary

Get up bright and early and soak up the fresh morning air. Our driver will pick guests up from the hotel and head to an early morning market. The importance of fresh food markets to Thai people cannot be understated. Part of daily life, these are always bustling, vibrant places packed with sights, sounds, and smells to ignite any traveller’s curiosity. With the prevalence of fresh ingredients in Thai cuisine, getting the best spices, fruit, vegetables, and meat is necessary for many Thai people. 

Here, the knowledgeable expert guide will help travellers navigate the market, sharing information about the history and background to Thai cuisine. They will inform the visitors of ingredients they perhaps don’t recognise, and explain the variety of spices and how they are used in southern Thai cooking. Take time to explore the market, discovering all its hidden secrets, and observing the locals as they go about their morning routines. There’s no better way to immerse in the local culture than to get to grips with its relationship to food. 

After a suitable amount of time looking at other people buying, selling, and consuming food, it’s about time to nourish ourselves as we settle down to a traditional southern Thai breakfast. 

A southern Thai breakfast will usually consist of ‘dim sum’ Chinese-influenced dishes – finger food. For those wanting to try a variety of different tastes, it’s the perfect approach to eating! We’ll enjoy small dumplings stuffed with a variety of ingredients; tofu, prawn, chicken, and mushroom being the most popular alongside delicious dipping sauces.  

Also try the Thai salapao, steamed buns similar to Chinese baozi, with a variety of sweet-cream or spicy fillings. The restaurant also specialises in hearty rice soups and grilled meats – a mainstay for many Thais – including juicy pork chops. Wash it all down with some authentic Thai coffee or tea before transferring back to the hotel.
