What you'll do

I will take you to my neighbourhood! You will visit a local market nearby, enjoy the local vibe and taste some Thai local sweet to refresh yourself from the hot weather in Thailand.

Are you excited to see my shrimp farm? Let's go! I'll show you my relative's farm and the process how to grow shrimps. You also have a chance to see how a farmer collecting many shrimps at once! It's a very local way that farmers will normally do. Keep your eyes open. This is one of the highlight you should not miss!

What do we do with the shrimps? We'll cook some Thai dish. Guess what's Thai dish is made of shrimps? It's Tom Yum Kung, the world famous menu that you should try when visit Thailand! Forget Tom Yum Kung that you have ever eaten from somewhere else. I'll show the original authentic one and teach you closely how to cook it. Not only the Spicy Shrimp Soup, but there're also other menus that I will teach you such as Fried Fish with Herbs, Mixed Vegetable Stir Fry, Eggs in Pandan Syrup.

Now, it's time to taste your homemade dishes and have lunch together :) Don't forget to capture the cool photos with your own dishes and my local shrimp farm!

Please note that the shrimp farm is about 1.5-2 hours of driving (Away from tourists!). You will get to experience the best authentic Thai cooking and culture!

Sa-Was-Dee-Krub (Hello! in Thai). I’m Taro, a co-founder of TakeMeTour. My goal is to host travelers from around the world with the best authentic experience in Thailand like never before (yes, believe me!).

My best co-host (called Mai) will take you on this trip. She is a local chef and food vendor. When she has a free time, she loves to welcome guests to her home, teach them how to cook Thai food especially Tom Yum Kung, and show them how her neighborhood is interesting.

Her relative also has a shrimp farm and she can take you there privately. With her experience about being a Local Expert for 2 years in my team, I'm sure you that you will get an amazing experience and cooking skills from her!

If you like the local food experience, please take a look in my profile.

This was a good and very local experience. Being driven outside Bangkok, and seeing every aspect of the process of the famous Tom Yum Goong and even getting to make it yourself. We even god food home for the day after. Kind people who took good care. I'll give it 8 stars, even though I thought it was a bit expensive.

Mai and her husband PP were awesome hosts. I love the way they are mindful of my needs. Mai’s cooking was very good. I will try to cook those dishes when I get home. This experience is highly recommended!

Mai was an excellent guide. I appreciate how attentive she was with my fiance who was nervous about crossing the bridge to the market. Truly caring and thoughtful. I would recommend her guide service to anyone. I felt like we were with friends.

The tour exceeded our expectations! That was much more than just visiting a shrimp farm. All the cultural sites we visited were absolutely amazing! Food was delicious. We were surrounded with such care and attention, that it made us feel like visiting OUR family. Mai and PP are friendly and caring hosts. We definitely recommend this tour to everyone who wants to see how people live in the countryside. The only word of warning: do not ware white pants, choose darker colors 😊
