This Once-In-A-Lifetime experience gives you a bird's-eye view of Chiang Mai's stunning countryside just as the sun rises to begin a new day. Allow the wind to lead you, while feeling a sense of weightlessness, as your experienced commercial pilot takes you over a wealth of cultural and historic sites giving you panoramic views of Chiangmai's breathtaking landscape. <br><br>Upon arrival at the launch pad, only about 10kms. from Chiang Mai's city centre, you can watch the crew prepare the balloon that will take you on a magical experience that you'll remember forever. <br><br>Following a flight of about 50-60 minutes like no other, you will be treated to a breakfast of fresh fruits, hot coffee and tea as well as a traditional Champagne Celebration. <br><br>Shortly thereafter you will be driven back to your Chiang Mai hotel, returning around mid-morning.

This was the best cooking class I’ve ever taken. Arm (Nitipong Moong-njern), the instructor, is a culinary school graduate who worked in a 5* restaurant but chose the more intimate setting of his home for teaching. He picked us up at our hotel and then took us and another couple to a morning produce market. There he explained what we were seeing, informing us how to pick produce at its peak, as he picked out the foods we were going to learn how to cook. He’s Eco-conscious, bringing his own containers and returning the little plastic bags offered by the venders. His house is adequately equipped with six burners in the kitchen even though he specializes in group sizes from 2 to 4. His helper prepped all the food and cleaned up afterwards. We each made our version of the six or seven on the menu which is so much better than being part of a team and only knowing a part of the process. Arm is a great teacher, demonstrating techniques before expecting us to do them. He was always near, offering feedback and assistance in the most positive way. He’s traveled around Asia sampling other cuisines, and he asks interested, friendly questions of us. Often there is a little chuckle to his language revealing to me a happy, contented person. At the end, he gave us his full color cookbook which we will treasure. A day well spent in ChiangMai!

We did a cookery class in Chiang Mai on a previous vacation 2 years ago - this was very different. We wanted a private class and to choose the dishes to cook. In this class we were able to cook 4 dishes. Arm picked us up from the hotel and we visited a local market to buy the ingredients for those dishes. He then took us back to his house where he taught us to make each of the dishes. After we had cooked each dish we sat down with Arm to eat it before cooking the next one. Arm was a good teacher and very friendly. I would defintely recommend the private class if you have previous experience cooking Thai dishes before (as we did). The price for 2 people was not much more than his group classes and well worth it to be able to have the class tailored to your needs.

So happy we chose to cook with Arm! Just four of us, with Arm and his mother. A stop at the market for ingredients, then back to his home to cook. We made amazing food, can't wait to try it at home using the cookbook Arm sent us home with. Truly wonderful experience, highly recommend!

We enjoyed the cooking so very much. After visiting the market and buying fresh ingredients, we arrived at the "small house" and prepared the different foods. Everything was well prepared and we had loads of fun. After cooking each dish, we sat together and enjoyed the food. We can recommend this cooking school to 100%!!!! Thank you for the amazing experience.

We spent half day with the chef (Arm) cooking Northern Thai cuisine and it was such an unforgettable experience! We started off with a market tour where Arm explained and answer our questions patiently. Then we went to his small house, which is a cosy, clean house to start our cooking class! He is so encouraging which helps us a lot in learning to cook the dishes since both of us are novice cooks. Arm is so friendly as we had many conversations at the table and get to know more about him and the food culture of Chiang Mai. He even dropped us to our next stop! Such hospitality in cooking classes couldn't be found anywhere! Thank you Arm!
