Why Thuan Tinh Island is special ?
Thuan Tinh Island gained fame recently for its cooking tour. However run-down conditions on the island forced the cooking school to relocate accross...
Cam Thanh Village, Hoi An, Vietnam
Great day with a good crew however July is hot in Hoi An and I struggled with some parts of the tour in that heat. Food was good and the staff were helpful however sometimes a bit prescriptive as to how you interpret things like presentation.
We had a wonderful time on this tour, staff were lovely, cooking class just perfect, great time was had buying the food at the market. We recommend this tour
A great cooking class, which entails a lot more than other cooking classes we have done, you do the usual market tour, then a boat trip to the island, then a small boat trip through a water coconut plantation and then you go on tho the cooking class where you are shown how rice milk is made. The menu consists of four simple but delicious meals, the chef who doesn't speak English runs the class really well with the help of an interpreter, you never lose track of the class. A really well run cooking class.
Interesting experience by firstly attending local market where fresh produce was purchased by guide with explanations given. Followed by large boat ride up main river to where we swapped over to smaller row boat for 10 mins arriving at new cooking school. Groups put into 8/10. Four various meals prepared where hands on experience was great. All meals eaten on premises. Overall wonderful & enlightening experience. Only drawback was rather long boat ride (45 mins) which was no doubt added for value of package.
