A Gourmet Journey from Bangkok to Chiang Mai- A Secret Retreats journey -
Owner of Mollisol Farm in Chiang Mai, Aarya has a passion for soils, food and art. At the organic farm, she focusses on growing unique produces naturally on some of the most fertile soils of Thai Highlands. Located at 1,200m of elevation, the farm is unique for its setting and offers an amazing view on Doi Ithanon and the lower range of the Himalaya.
Thailand has not waited for international food guides to come to be one of the main gastronomic destinations in Asia. From street food, to fine dining and authentic regional specialities, the country has a lot to offer to your senses. With this journey we will explore 3 areas only from the fashionable eateries in Bangkok to the highland organic farms above Chiang Mai, with some unique settings on a train, in a villa or in a farm.
This journey will combine cultural discoveries in Bangkok, Ayutthaya and Chiang Mai, visits of markets, farms and some original dining experiences all along.
