Overview

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.

Good cooking class, nice journey around the market and towards the cooking school. Although the guide was a little bit in a rush to finish her schedule. Language could also be improved.

Good value for money. Tour through the busy morning market to buy all the ingredients for cooking later that day. The dishes taught were delicious and good to get a copy of the recipes too. Went out of their way to cater for veggies too.

We had a wonderful morning learning about Vietnamese cooking and trying it out ourselves. The concept is really good. First the market then a leisurely trip to the island down the river and then to work. We enjoyed every minute of it
