    Great experience, very good teacher! Be ready to eat your own Tteokbokki!
  • Rashinah 11 Feb 2018
    Need more explanation for the exact location. Other than that, the service at Akademy is excellence.
  • Jeane Aison 3 Feb 2018
    The overall experience was great. The only drawback was that the teacher cannot speak in English well so you’ll get lost from time to time.
  • Caiping 19 Jan 2018
    Had a nice and wonderful experience wearing hanbok before making kimchi. Teacher is very friendly and patience :)
  • Pui Kwan 11 Jan 2018
    Travel with friends. 5 of us enjoyed the session of Kimchi and Tteokbokki class with Chinese speaking instructor. We can eat tteokbboki on the spot and vacuum pack the Kimchi to be brought home. Vacuum-packed Kimchi has to be baggage check-in. Great experience and fun!
  • Hes 6 Jan 2018
    The place is not really easy to find. Should indicate some landmarks to identify it. Location on klook map is wrong too. The session is acceptable. Just that the session I went is with too huge group. About 14 pax to one "instructor". No much focus and kind of rush. Hanbok experience is not to expectation. No much choice on the design. If you want nice design, this is not the one for it.
  • KAI YIN 5 Jan 2018
    everything well prepared and explained a bit too rushed
  • HON KIM 4 Jan 2018
    polite & helpful instructor, my wife and i enjoyed a lot thru this lesson.
  • ZHI MIN 1 Jan 2018
    Interesting lesson on how kimchi is made. Was expecting more from tteokbokki class, it was still delicious nonetheless.
  • Man WAI Jennie 31 Dec 2017
    Although I’m late, but the service is good!
FAQs

Activity Q&A

Q: Can my children join the Hanbok Experience only? Will they be able to enter the Kimchi making course?

A: Yes, children can participate in the Hanbok experience without taking the kimchi making course. They can enter the kitchen area to observe the kimchi making process off to one side. If they wish to participate, please make sure they purchase a ticket for the kimchi making course (same price as general admission adult ticket).
