Many travelers know Thailand as a street-food paradise, and rightly so. One could easily spend months trolling Bangkok`s wok-wielding vendors and snacking on oyster omelets, spicy noodles and barbecued squid. With its Gourmet Thailand tour, however, Trip Feast brings guests far beyond the street carts.

highlights: on the taste trail

In nine lovely, long days (and for less money than the cruise) go beyond the humble spud and discover the delights of the food, drink and unsurpassed hospitality of the Irish on a unique and fascinating tour of Ireland. The tour starts in my favourite Irish town of Dingle in the south-west and ends in Dublin. Along the way you can meet the characters at Dingle Farmer’s market, go fishing in Dingle Bay and have your catch cooked in a local pub, go dolphin spotting, visit breweries, distilleries, cheese makers and so much more. Great fun. Visit Trip Feast: Beyond the Humble Spud.
