A must do! Amazing class and great activities. Chelsea the owner was our host and she showed us through the local market and was so helpful. The class was super organized and very professional. The food was amazing and great value. Both we would absolutely recommend this class to anyone (beginner or advanced cooks). Fantastic experience and thanks for making our time special in Taipei.
The Hakka Culture Day Tour is a bit off the beaten track where Taipei tours are concerned. It covers the Hsinchu County, a relatively quieter area when it comes to Taipei tourism, especially during the weekdays. We joined the tour on a weekday which meant no crowds and we got to enjoy most of the spots all on our own plus take all the photos we want. However, on the other hand, most shops and eating outlets in Beipu are closed. I guess you have to decide which you prefer. The highlight of the tour for us was the Hakka Tea workshop. Lots of work but lots of fun as well.
Our guide, Joy, ia warm and friendly. She is a treasure trove of knowledge and fun facts about the tour areas as well as Taiwan in general.
Anotther fantastic activity experienced in Taipei. I'm always baffled on the many tours/ activities you can experience here. This was very worth your time and money. You can experience making from scratch the famous Xiaolongbao. The teacher of our class was so ftiendly, uplifting, energizing, accomodating, captivating, and also good at English. She guides you all the way. Its step by step and simple. I'm planning to join the other classes in my next visit. So glad I joined this activity. Very convenient how the building is just outside to the right of that MRT exit too. Join it. =) you enjoy and eat your dishes after too.
This was honestly the main highlight of my trip to Taiwan. They ladies were SO sweet and kind. Everything was so clean, organized and informative. We also got some knowledge about the history behind the food and ideas for later when we were travelling around Taipei after. Definitely a must do at the beginning of your trip!
We booked this as a surprise for our friend’s bday, and she enjoyed the experience! ☺️ The qi paos are all pretty, and the shop owner is very hospitable and nice. The shop’s neighbourhood is a good place for a photoshoot, and lots of shops around the area. Definitely try this out on your visit to Taipei.
