Bangkok, Thailand (PRWEB) October 31, 2013
The five-day, four-night tour opens the door of delight to epicureans as they travel around the Thai capital exploring the unique street eats and tantalizing traditional local cuisine led by a food-loving Backyard Travel guide.
Along the way, travelers can discover the merits of $1 street food interspersed with five-star fine dining experiences – the wonderful contrast which helps make Bangkok one of the world’s most visited cities. Travelers can dine at some of Asia’s most recognized restaurants, including Vertigo, Issaya Siamese Club and Sala Rim Naam and some hidden-away street stalls that even locals don’t know.
The fully customizable tour also offers the opportunity to learn the secrets of Thai cuisine by studying how to make a selection of choice local dishes, as well as how to pick the ingredients, at a renowned Bangkok cooking school.
Cuisine balances with culture in this gastronomic adventure, with insider experiences such as observing the monks at the famous Wat Pho as they perform their morning chants, and travel to lesser-seen regions of Nonthaburi and Samut Songkhram Province.
“Cuisine and culture often go hand-in-hand, each with a reflection of the other,” said Backyard Travel’s General Manager Maeve Nolan. “One of the many reasons people adore Bangkok is the myriad options for dining, which range from unbelievably good value to outrageously divine on the taste scale, on par with any city in the world.”
