  • Overview & Itinerary

    A Kantoke dinner is probably the best way to get to know the custom, traditions, the Northern food and culture of Thailand at the same time.

    At the dinner plus cultural evening, visitors are seated in the floor around a circular tray with Northern Thai dishes on it. They eat while watching traditional Thai and Northern dances and hill tribe culture shows.

    Because the food is shared, there is a sense of intimacy with your fellow diners. This feeling combines with the sights and sounds of the dances and music along with the aromas and tastes to stays with you long after you return to your home.


    This tour is available in two options – coach and private. The private option offers you greater flexibility and you can spend as much or as little time at any of the places that you visit. Unlike the tight and fixed schedules of coach tours, the private option allows you to do the tour at your own pace.

    We present a brief description of how the evening progresses.

    Traditionally, when a northern family gathers to eat, they sit on cushions around a toke, a low, round table.

    The table is covered with khan (small bowls) filled with a variety of northern Thai delights.

    Diners tear off chunks of sticky rice to roll into balls, and dip in the soups, curries, chili sauces, and meat dishes, sharing a long and languorous meal.

    The Kantoke dinner combines the sociable way of eating with cultural performances.

    Soothing, traditional northern Thai music accompanies colourful displays of graceful dances, treating all your senses to the best that the north has to offer.

    The art to truly appreciating a Kantoke dinner is to experiment with the contrast of flavours.

    It’s best not to stick with just one favourite dish, but rather to sample them in different sequences, jumping back and forth between sweet, sour, spicy and savoury.

    After a languorous, yet delightfully complete evening you will be taken back to your hotel.

    • Show and food were superb

      This was a wonderful evening trip, well worth the money. The Thai dancing and drumming show was superb. The young women and men in their colorful, cultural costumes is not to be misse...
