If you'd done the standard cooking class - and what that as well as do something different out in the countryside this is the one for you! After about an hour at the market you get on a medium size ( then a row boat in rather shallow water!) and go to the Island (45 mins++). Means you can look... More

Our beautiful kind and gentle guide Trang (aka Jan) picked us up right on time and we all headed to the markets. There were lovely people on our day trip. Very interesting market shopping expedition we learnt all about the different herbs and foods. Wonderful old wooden boat trip relaxing in the river (with sheltered roof as it was very... More

Picked up from our Hotel, the first stop was the Market to buy our fresh produce. That was an experience. Hon our chef new exactly what he was looking for, he bought and we carried. Then we were on our way to Thuan Tinh Island on a boat, nice scenery and very welcome breeze. About 45 mins later we transferred... More

Amazing cooking tour/day trip to Thuan Tinh. The journey to the island itself was for about an hour (started off buying the ingredients from the town market as they all do) and beautiful scenery along the way. Cute little island, and the cooking class was very enjoyable - ample space and a good mix of dishes that were being taught.... More

The cooking class on Thuan Tinh Island was great. I had seen so many advertisements for other cooking classes in Hoi An and im glad I paid that little extra to make it more of a day out. the day starts out with a visit to the market to get the ingredients needed. Then you take a 40 minute boat... More

There are many cooking schools in Hoi An and we picked this one from peer reviews off this sight and can say it was an excellent experience. Hotel pickup, a guided tour thru the food market plus a boat trip to the school was great. The chef was good fun and it was easy enough for anyone to pick up... More

Very well run! Amazing experience, awesome food! Perfect length of time, great to visit the local markets and shop like a local would! Very reasonably priced considering what it includes.

Very punctual pick up at hotel (and drop off at end) and enjoyable time. Nice boat trip and good guide/teacher (Nga). Chose this school because the menu offered things with ingredients that I can source back home (ie no green papaya and banana flowers) max group of 10. Also included market visit which was quite interesting. Very professionally organised with... More

This was definitely the highlight of our stay in Hoi An. We were picked up from our hotel and taken to the fresh produce market. That in itself is a great experience, learning about each ingredient we were later going to cook with. After the markets, we were taken by boat to the island and greeted by all the staff... More

From the punctuality of picking you up from your hotel in the morning, to having friendly guides and people helping you out at the cooking table, we thoroughly enjoyed the experience with thuan tinh island cooking! Hon our guide and cooking teacher really knew his stuff when taking us through the market, identifying and helping us buy our ingredients. On... More
