What you'll do

Join a Local Host who is a foodie like yourself and eat your way around Chinatown and its historic market, local eateries and street food stalls together as well as discovering the incredible ingredients that go into these dishes.Read more +

Get to know classic Thai and Chinese food; from pla pao (salty barbecued fish) to som tam (papaya salad), pad krapao moo (stir fried pork with basil) to oyster omelettes, you'll find incredible flavour combinations and ingredients you never knew existed!

Immerse yourself in the local food culture and snack on the move, trying small bites from a variety of hawker stalls so you can try a little bit of everything and discover the ingredients and history behind each recipe as you watch your food being chopped, fried, grilled and steamed before your eyes! 

Chinatown is renowned in particular for its traditional Thai and Chinese desserts and barbecued seafood, so your local will take you to the best restaurants or street food stalls to try these classic dishes. 

Wander through the area and see the classic Thai shophouses where locals sit at tables that have  spilled out onto the street, discover where humble hawker carts are hidden amongst the energetic markets, try coffee from a 100 year old coffee house and taste dim sum in a local restaurant! 

 

What To Expect

We’ll be in touch within 24 hours after booking to find out more about your personality and interests so we can assign a like-minded local who can create a bespoke experience for you.

Your Local Host will communicate with you directly to suggest an itinerary and agree a meeting time and place. Your itinerary is flexible, so during the experience you can always change your mind about what you want to do (and eat!)

Your Local Host may also suggest adjustments or new routes if they feel that there is something just around the corner that you may enjoy, or perhaps if the weather affects your itinerary.

Although you will see the main attractions in the area, your Local Host will also help you to discover the places, things and stories that you won’t find in a guidebook and that make the city unique.
