        Great and fun cooking class
        Went here with my wife as part of our honeymoon. The experience was great; The market tour was very informative and in a cozy market where the locals usually shop, the guide/chef was well versed in both English and his craft and made the entire experience very enjoyable. In total we made around 10 dishes varying from skewers to full dishes. Due to our own ineptitude we were running behind a bit on time but the staff effortly made up for that. During the event staff will be making photo's and videos which they will send to you afterward.

        Fantastic experience! 😀
        This was a great experience and something I highly recommended if you're in Seminyak. The market tour was really interesting and our chef / guide gave us lots of information on Balinese food and culture. The prepping and cooking of several traditional Balinese dishes was great fun, carried out along with other couple. And then we had the pleasure of eating everything we cooked, which tasted lovely. Worth every penny and something you should try if you're visiting Bali.

        Really A fantastic Balinese cooking class
        Hello I am Marlies from Holland During a Java-Bali tour I participated in the Balinesse cooking class with a group. It was a lot of fun and I learned a lot of new recipes and the food was so tasty. Fortunately, we also got the recipes in a nice book. This way I can often make tasty meals. I really enjoyed it🫶 Kind regards from Holland

        Ok activity for a rainy day, but in my opinion not the best cooking class in ubud
        This is the fourth cooking class i have been to in Bali within the last 5 years. I will range this as nr 3 out of the 4. Nice people and nice surroundings. The food turned out a bit bland for my taste, mostly due to the lack of chili. We also waited for a long time before starting the class. From pickup to start was a little over 1,5 hours as we were waiting for more people/ participants.

        Fantastic cooking school, delicious food
        This was a highlight of our Bali holiday and exceeded all expectations. An informative and entertaining market tour led by our guide, Chef Jim Reeves, delicious food created and then shared together under his tutorage, and a great atmosphere with several other groups working with other chefs throughout the space. I was impressed with the care given to food hygiene and safety. Our chef spoke excellent English and showed good understanding of food allergies. Peanut and shellfish free dishes were prepared separately out back for members of our group with these allergies. Highly recommend!

        Best Barong dance!
        simple structure but you can see that there is respect for culture in this attraction! There are papers in several languages ​​telling the history of the dance. I thought it was beautiful!

        Great way to spend a morning!
        We were told about this class by my brother and sister-in-law, who raved about and right they were! We were picked up on time and taken to the markets where chef Tommy explained many of the key ingredients used in Balinese cooking as well as explaining the daily offerings - super interesting. From the markets we went to the restaurant and cooking school, where we were divided into groups and the lesson started for a good number of different dishes, which we all got to eat in the end. Chef Tommy made it fun as well as the other attendees all over the world - would highly recommend!

        Great experience! Even caters for allergies
        This was a great experience. We got picked up at 8 and were taken to a traditional Balinese market where our chef explained the food we will be using. He also explain the prayers and offerings that you see everywhere. Then we were taken to the restaurant where we made all different Balinese foods. You work together at your table to prepare and make the food. At the end you get to enjoy the food and you get a certificate. Our chef was friendly, informative and fun. They even cater for allergies. I’m a celiac and they specifically made gluten free versions of the food for me to eat. Great experience and great food.

        Great Experience
        We participated in this class our first full day in Bali and it set very high expectations for our trip. Tommy, our chef/instructor was fantastic. Very knowledgeable and animated. Would 100% recommend this experience. The food was absolutely incredible. Being non-cookers, we had no idea we were even capable of making such delicious food!

        Absolutely worth doing
        Myself and 2 friends did this and it was an absolute highlight of ubud. And also probably the best food we ate in our bali trip even if we cooked it ourselves. Really well run and excutued for cooking each part of the dishes we made. Plus there were monkeys climbing in the trees in the trees in the distance!

        With some reservations as to the cost of the entrance ticket
        Aqua Planet Jeju is definitely one of the biggest aquariums in the world. A good number of mostly sea creatures are on display. The regular "Magical Starlight Blue Seatopia" show is interesting (with a lot of dancing and diving involved). Services are good and the location is really scenic (overlooking the famous tuff cone of Seongsan Ilchubong). However, I've been to many aquariums all over the world and I find the cost of the entrance ticket quite expensive. The "Magical Starlight Blue Seatopia" show is good but not that impressive. All the dialogues are in Korean with no English translation. Lastly, it's quite far from Jeju City proper and traveling to the place can be a bit expensive. I also hope that they would improve the food selection at the food court as well as the items for sale at the souvenir shop (perhaps with t-shirts and keychains with "Jeju Island" written on them).

        Worth a visit
        It was a lovely trip to the mountains in the west of Java. Very calming and fantastic scenery. The lunch afterwards was also delicious in a traditional setting.
