We stayed 2 nights in hoi an. Less activities we can do in such small ancient town. It was first time (I think will be last) my family re ‘learn & cooking’ together. It was unique & memorable during my da nang trip. A pair of long bamboo chopsticks was given as souvenir. Food portion & choices are too much for us... :-) good to explore food culture in Vietnam
I learnt a lot about Vietnamese coffee, and learnt how to make 2 types of coffee (robusta and arabica) using the phin, iced milk coffee and even egg coffee! I appreciated the effort taken to prepare vietnamese coffee, especially egg coffee as we had to crack the eggs and beat the yolks ourselves. Very fun!
This is one of my favorite experiences in Hoi An. They guided us through the whole process of creating a lantern, as well as provided a little bit of history and information on the different kinds of lanterns. I recommend this whether you are traveling by yourself or with a group. It is also a fun family experience based on my observation, so be sure to bring your family here, too for the experience.
I highly recommend this class. Luckily, I was the only student when I came there. Diep, the facilitator, gave me a brief history of Vietnamese drinking culture, and taught me how to make traditional Vietnamese coffee such as the black coffee, egg coffee, and milk coffee. He was also very personable, which I liked very much. When you go to Hoi An, I'd say this is one of the must-try experiences.
The tour was arranged perfectly. Tour guide speaks great English and maybe some Chinese too. (It was a English tour)
However, we thought we were gonna see the sunset at My Son to get some cool photos during the magic timing. It was actually happening on the boat to Hoi An old town. We still got some very cool photo at My Son. Highly recommended this tour.
I would 100% recommend this trip for anyone that’s visiting Hoi An. Love the whole program, we started by visiting the market and we took a 40 mins boat ride to the coconut tree village. We then took the coconut basket to the cooking class. We managed to make spring rolls, fried noodle, vietnamese pancake, and pho. We absolutely enjoyed the class and our chef/guide (Nii) was very pleasant!!
