Taste of Thailand

Thailand, the fabled land of Siam, is rife with attractions from bustling modern cities to golden tropical beaches and a world-famous cuisine.  It is a famously friendly country, known as ‘The Land of Smiles’ for the hospitality of the Thai people. From the northern mountains to the Gulf of Thailand in the south, this tropical land is a verdant paradise for the culinary traveler. Thai cuisine is some of the most popular, healthiest (and most delicious) in the world, combining, like much Southeast Asian cuisine, the five fundamental tastes of sweet, sour, spicy, bitter, and salty.

The capital city Bangkok is a bustling place, with roads packed with cars and noisy tuk tuks, pavements crammed with ramshackle food stalls, and shrines laden with fragrant flowers. In the north Chiang Mai is surrounded by hills and exhibits its distinctive Lanna inheritance through its architecture, handicrafts, and cuisine. Considered Thailand’s cultural hub, Chiang Mai is home to silk weavers, artists, and wood carvers.

You’ll discover both cities and make a wealth of memories on our Taste of Thailand itinerary!

We already had a trip planned to Asia when we read about the Taste of Thailand. We have traveled with the International Kitchen four times before, and all our experiences have been outstanding, so we decided to add Bangkok to our itinerary. One of the more memorable days included a trip to the flower market, where a giant bunch of orchids sold for about .26 cents USD. While shopping, we also enjoyed an interesting treat--coconut ice cream with sweet corn, green noodles, and sticky rice. Even when something didn't sound particularly appealing, in Bangkok, the food was always delicious! This trip did not include any cooking classes, but I wish it had. I would have liked to take this part of the experience home with me to share with my friends and family. Bangkok will not disappoint. [Regarding The International Kitchen staff:] The staff is always great! Cynthia Z., MO
