Starts off with a cruise around the local produce marker by foot. You are told about each ingredient and meat you going to use. The meat house is particularly interesting, every part of the animal on a bench. You then take your findings on a small boat over to the island you will be cooking. The cooking building is nice...

We did their cooking class last week and from the time we were picked up from our hotel until we were dropped off, it was a fun experience. We enjoyed the walk around the markets and being taught things along the way. The boat rides (larger boat then transferred to two small boats for the ride through the coconut palms)... More

Everything about this attraction went like clockwork, the market visit was fascinating, all the produce was incredibly fresh. The boat trip was really nice and relaxing, even the transfer from the `big` boat to the little boat and the short trip through the water coconuts was an experience. The cooking location was very, very clean and the instruction was clear... More

We booked this class because it was the top rated on Trip Advisor and recommended by our hotel. It was a great decision. The day started with a market tour where we actually bought the ingredients we later used to cook with - a number of other classes I have been on only show you around the market but have... More

A very interesting part of Vietnam. Wonderful old buildings and great value for money shopping. Many opportunities for photography. Motor bikes a pain.

We did a morning cooking class. The trip to the markets to get ingredients was an eye opening experience. The boat ride along the river and through the coconut palm village was an interesting experience. The cooking class was informative and the food was incredibly tasty yet the ingredients and techniques were very simply. Best value for money experience I've... More

A thoroughly enjoyable cooking course, 4 tasty dishes rounded off the day which started with full on experience in the local market while we sourced our fresh ingredients, followed by a relaxing boat trip to our kitchen via the water coconut fields on the edge of the paddy fields. Our teacher was very informative, and his passion for the food... More
