What you'll do

Come join me in exploring Phuket - Unesco designated City of Gastronomy. We are a city of mixed cultures, there are a great variety of dishes from different cuisines ranging from Thai, Chinese-Thai, Malaysian, Muslim and also European and Indian. All these are assimilated into a fantastic smorgasbord of taste and sight, making Phuket's food like none other. Our first stop is breakfast at over a 100 year old Michelin starred restaurant. This Chinese influenced place presents dishes as when the restaurant was first opened giving you a glimpse into the history of the city.
Once done we will explore old town. Stroll down its shopping streets teaming with local shops full of Thai clothing, souvenirs and crafts.
Nestled in this beautiful neighbourhood is our next stop, a lovely Roti restaurant that has been chosen by Phuket Micheline Bib Gourmand 2019, yum! After lunch we will visit the Phuket museum and do some sightseeing - enjoy the history of our people and our city, and walk off the food we've eaten so far!
Next we"ll be headed to a restaurant that's a favourite of local and foreign royalty. In it's magical outdoor garden we will put on our “chef’s hats” and under supervision of it’s devoted proprietor we will learn to cook some local dishes which we will promptly eat! We will round out our day with some leisurely shopping. After we will deliver you to your hotel by 6.
Other things to note
My driver will pick you up at your hotel or cruise dock and take you to me at our first meeting place. Bring your appetite and curiosity.

My nickname is Tuk and I am so pleased to meet you!
I am a native Phuketian and though I am new to the Airbnb platform, I have been working in the tourism industry here for the last 15 years. There is nothing I like better than helping you discover the city that I love and its rich food history and variety. Besides, it’s much more fun eating your way around town then just walking around town! Take my tour and discover Phuket that I love!

AMAZING! Absolutely sign up for this tour if you are visiting in Thailand. She helped us save so much money in shopping and avoiding overpriced tourist prices that it paid for itself.

Großartig! Nur zu empfehlen!!!! Arunsri hat uns einen wundervollen Tag geschenkt. Sie ist mit ganzer Liebe und viel Fachkenntnis bei der Sache. Wir haben so viel Neues und sehr Interessantes über die Insel , Ihre Bewohner und Ihrer Kultur erfahren. Klasse. Alles war durchdacht und wir liebevoll darin durchgeführt. Es waren unglaublich tolle und sehr leckere Endeckungen. Ihre Tour ist einfach ein Muss, wenn man Phuket besucht.

What an amazing day! One of the best food and cultural tours Ive ever had. Total immersion. Arunsri was enthusiastic and generous with her culture and made it so easy, picking me up and dropping me off at my hotel. Make sure you come with a big appetite for so much amazing food. Worth every cent/baht!!

A wonderful and personal experience trying all kinds of local food. Each dish was different and interesting. There was a story behind the foods we tried. We went to at least 4 places trying different types of dishes. Arunsri was amazing, fun, and knows her food. I would highly recommend this experience!

Our experience with Tuk was I believe, the most comprehensive tour of Phuket town. There was delicious food, history of Phuket and Phuket town, museams, temples. I liked the "secret" aspect that Tuk brought to the tour, there were unassuming doors which turned out to be beautiful museums, amazing restaurant which became our cooking class. Tuk as a person was also very accomodating, she made special arrangements for the food as my wife is a vegetarian, and then helped us shop for the ingredients from the local grocery shop that we wanted to take home. Overall, we enjoyed the tour very much. It was definitely one of the highlight of our trip. Highly Recommended :)
