The cooking class provided on thuan tinh was pretty good. We were picked up from our hotel in the morning and brought to the market. The market was a big chaotic but I liked trying things and smelling things and seeing where the food comes from. After that we had a boat ride to the island which was kind of... More

I always enjoy cooking and this was a fun way to experience Hoi An food scene! The tour started off at the Hoi An food market (after they picked us up from our hotel) - a place that looks a bit intimidating on your own but our tour guide, Jian explained to us various herbs, exotic vegetables and fruits to...

After a somewhat traumatic start in the market shopping for our ingredients and the rowing through the coconut palms to reach the site; I really enjoyed my morning of cooking! I found it to be very informative and the food we made was delicious.

Great value for the cost! Starts off with a pick-up from your hotel, and then to the local market to shop for the fresh ingredients of your dishes together. Hon and Happy were our guides and chef for the morning, and were both great and very informative! They told us about all the different vegetables and food we'd be using,... More

This experience offers a great cooking class and so much more. A lot is included in the price ($30 each). We were provided transport from our hotel, had an informative tour through the markets, a boat ride to the island and then a cooking class of an excellent standard. Mo was our guide and she spoke good English, had a... More

This was our most enjoyable activity so far. This was due to our excellent guide Mo, the endearing chef, the very helpful staff, and the superb organisation of the trip. Very informative walk around the market. Lovely boat trip. Excellent cooking class. It was well run, explained clearly and the food was delicious! I would highly recommended this tour, and... More

I'm so glad that I chose this class after seeing all of the outstanding reviews on trip-advisor. The group was a good size and everyone got to make each dish for themselves. Our guide Hon was very friendly and the cook was incredibly sweet and helpful. The class takes place in a beautiful and quiet setting and the food that... More

When in Hoi An, make time for the half day cooking class to Thuan Tinh Island. Other reviewers have broken down the day well, markets, boat ride, the chef, passionfruit juice etc. I will just add by saying the food you cook is amazing, the staff make sure you don't screw it up, and it is an all round great...
