Vegetarians are welcome!
Just 17km (10 miles) away from the city gates, the relaxed atmosphere of an organic farm awaits you and your friends. Having recently done a Thai cooking class myself, I highly recommend this activity. Not only is it a great change from the regular sightseeing activities, but a cooking class in Chiang Mai is also the best way to unwind and embed yourself in the local lifestyle. So why not escape the adorable city for a day?
During your cooking class in Chiang Mai, you will learn all about the ingredients, the different spices and herbs, and you will be amazed at the amount of preparation that goes into traditional Thai cooking. You will be taken to our school/farm where you will have the opportunity to pick ingredients with the group, prepare and taste your own food, and eventually, eat your very own prepared meal. The terrace overlooking the fishpond in itself is another attraction and it has to be said – Thai food tastes even better when you prepared it yourself (under the watchful eye of the instructors).
