Thuan Tinh Island is a small isolated island, around 3.5 km far from Hoi An...

Thuan Tinh Island is a small isolated island, around 3.5 km far from Hoi An Ancient Town, on Thu Bon River. Thuan Tinh Island is an eco-friendly island rich in tropical foliage making it a beautiful place to cook, relax and then enjoy the dishes you've created, Thuan Tinh Island Cooking Tour. We organize daily cooking classes at Thuan Tinh Island: pick-up at the hotels in Hoi An area. You will make your first stop at the market to purchase some fresh and locally grown herbs, before joining a river boat ride in 30 minutes to Thuan Tinh for a relaxing meander through what has been officially recognised as an ecological zone. To visit the local Village, we take a row boat ride through the water coconut trees. We then walk through the gardens to visit a local family and snack on grilled rice cakes and iced tea. From there, we head back to our open-air cooking class overlooking the water coconut trees and river. Our chefs will show you how to make Vietnamese food while you enjoy the cool breeze and peaceful setting. That is much more than simply a cooking class as a journey to discover the eco island that makes you satisfied.

Shock it was another rainy day in Vietnam... but the cooking class was brilliant. For someone who has never really cooked I come away with 4 great Vietnamese dishes to try at home. Was great to go around all the markets beforehand to help buy the food that we will be cooking!

We had this cooking class recommended to us by our host family. We had an amazing time going to the market - picking out the fresh ingredients and learning more about the Vietnamese kitchen. It was kind of a glimpse behind the scenes after enjoying the Vietnamese cuisine in the past week. It was also nice that the cooking itself... More

This cooking class was amazing, perfectly authentic and organised! Hon was an awesome guide/teacher, his English was perfect and a bonus that he had a good sense of humour! Would 100% recommend this to anyone! They were also very good at accomodating vegetarians and people who don't eat seafood! The boat rides along the way and the market trip at... More
