Our day started with a boat ride to the local market. Our guide Phuong was super lovely and knowledged about the local food and culture. She explained us during the market tour what ingredients Vietnamese people usually use for thei cooking and also what benefits different herbs ands ingredients have. We then bought some of the ingredients that we would later user for the cooking class. After the market tour we went on a longer boat ride to the island where the cooking class took place. It's a very local farmer island with few people living there. Absolutely great and relaxing environment to get away from the busy old town in Hoi An. The food we made was delicious and the team really friendly and helpful. Grandma was there as well and showed us how to make rice milk. Overall it was a great experience and I highly recommend to take a cooking class while you are in Hoi An as it really is a must do! Thanks again to Phuong!
I definitely recommend taking this cooking class since they also offer an interesting local market tour. We then got to her family compound in the scenic village. This is a fantastic experience, not just for the cooking class but to get the chance to visit the local side of Hoi An and have a real experience of rural Vietnam.
It was a nice day taking a boat ride to the countryside. The hands on cooking was fun and the food was delicious. My friends and I totally appreciated the great service. Highly recommend this activity for having fun with friends, families or even solo travelers to meet people.
