No matter what degree of spice your palate prefers, delicious flavors abound in Thailand. One of the hottest restaurants in Bangkok is Thai celebrity chef Ian Kittichai’s Issaya Siamese Club (4 Soi Sri Aksorn, Chue Ploeng Road; 66-2/672-9040) with a modern Thai menu featuring a unique menu of edible art. Nai Mong Hoi Thod (539 Phlub Phla Chai Rd, Pom Prap Sattru Phai, Bangkok 10100) is a local’s favorite featuring classic delicious street food including traditional seafood pancakes.

 

Craft cocktails are also super popular in the country. Check out Hyde & Seek (65/1 Athenee Residence, Soi Ruamrudee, Wireless Road; 66-2/168-5152) or The Deck at Arun Residence (36-38 Soi Pratoo Nok Yoong, Maharat Road; 66-2/2221-9158) for creative libations and sunset sips.

This cooking school takes you through the entire process—from shopping at a market to enjoying your dishes. While it’s somewhat more expensive than a half day of museums and lunch, the long-term benefits are immense.

RECOMMENDED WAYS TO EXPERIENCE THE CUISINE OF THAILAND

Bangkok City Getaway3 nights

Roundtrip Bangkok
CAD $699 Per Person Incl taxes

Discover the history and highlights of Bangkok on a private guided tour. Your day will start with a boat ride through Bangkok’s canals, or klongs, to see family homes and temples—you’ll quickly see why they call this city “Venice of the East.” Next, visit Wat Arun, the Temple of the Dawn, and the Grand Palace, which houses the Temple of the Emerald Buddha. Lastly, stop at the Temple of the Reclining Buddha, the oldest and largest Buddhist temple in Bangkok, featuring one of the largest Buddha statues in Thailand. The following day you are free to explore on your own. We suggest an excursion to colorful Damnoen Saduak floating market. Imagine a grocery-shopping trip where you have to flag down the merchants as they float by on boats. No, it's not a Wonderland-style flight of fancy, but a traditional way of buying and selling colorful fruits, vegetables, meats, flowers, and sweets since the 19th century.
