About Us

Our Story

CHIANG MAI FOOD TOURS was created with our love and passion in food and travel. Born and raised in Thailand, our roots have always been firmly planted in Thai culture and culinary.

In early 2011, we started our mission to introduce Thailand’s local flavours to the world and help visitors “eat like a Thai”. We launched the innovative tour company called "Bangkok Food Tours" to let visitors from all over the world experience the ultimate food and cultural exploration in Bangkok and its environs. Besides tasting delicious food, all participants will learn fascinating history and rich culture in neighbourhoods, sharing from the true insider. Bangkok Food Tours is now the leading culinary travel operator in Thailand and has received numerous of awards and recognitions, including the prestigious Thailand Tourism Award 2013 for the Best Cultural Tour program.

After 3 inspiring years in Bangkok, we are ready to bring travellers to experience Chiang Mai through its food culture. As one of our co-founders is Northern-Thailand native and her family has operated a Northern Thai restaurant for generations, we are very pleased that finally we have an opportunity to introduce visitors to the culinary secrets of the Lanna highlands. Hop to see you in one of our delicious food tours!
