About the trip
Gastronomy
The central region of Thailand is considered to be a fertile land appropriate for agriculture. It has been praised to be full of natural resources as ‘the land of fish and rice’. This trip will introduce you to the meaning behind Ayutthaya, our old capital, through the story of food. Each dish will represent the rich resources the area has to offer, from the river shrimps and fish to the different types of rice. You will dine amongst the old ruins and at the same time, learn the history of each dish through the lens of our ancestors. You will also travel through Koh Kerd, which is a small community that carries the idea of simple living in their hearts. Immerse yourselves in the history of ancient Thailand and you’ll be falling in love with us all over again, guaranteed.
