Food tours in Asia

This time, let your tastebuds do the exploring...

Asian food in all its sweet and sour glory continues to influence world cuisine. Ginger, cinnamon, pepper and turmeric were the stuff of legend in the 1600s, and sticky stir-fries, fragrant curries and juicy dumplings have all made their mark on today’s global palate. But nothing beats the real thing, fresh from the wok. Come with us on a food tour through the night markets of Thailand, the luscious Vietnamese Mekong Delta, and the beautiful teahouses of Japan. One tip? Pack stretchy pants.

Why choose us

Real, authentic experiences

We love the highlights, but for us, the real magic is found off the tourist trails. Our trips combine iconic sites with hidden gems that you’ll only discover with Intrepid. We’re talking mornings exploring the Taj Mahal, followed by a Mughlai cooking class with a passionate home cook.

Local expertise

Whether you’re perusing markets, hunting down the best street food bites or learning how to cook centuries-old family recipes at a homestay, there’s no better way to get the inside scoop on a destination – and its culinary traditions – than with an expert local leader by your side.

Small groups

Big coaches and flag-toting tour guides don’t cut it for us. With a maximum group size of 12, our groups blend in with the locals and have plenty of opportunities to interact with chefs, street food vendors and group leaders. It also means you can really connect with your fellow foodies.

Sri Lanka Real Food Adventure

Amanda · Traveled May 2024
The Sri Lanka food tour exceeded my expectations, and was due to the Cohesiveness of the group and its team leader Prageeth. We covered alot of ground in 12 days as we ate our way through Sri Lanka. As said in previous reviews be prepared to leave heavier than you arrived. Overall great trip.
