My husband and I take cooking classes wherever we travel and have taken classes in other parts of Thailand as well. This class is excellent because there is a daily menu that differs, allowing students to learn many different and authentic dishes beyond the typical phad thai and chicken curry. The program is very well organized and the instructor is... More

I learned a lot in our class, our instructor was knowledgeable and passionate about cooking. The remaining staff were very efficient and quick with setting up the classroom for each meal, clearing pans and pots and placing out plates with new ingredients. The whole thing seemed very organized. I would highly recommend this as you start off in the fresh... More

My husband and I chose Sompong Thai Cooking School based on excellent reviews. It lived up to all its wonderful reviews. Our instructor Koy, was excellent and explained everything very clear. Everything about this class was great. We met a person at the BTS station wearing a red apron and then drove to the school. Koy's explanation of all the... More

This cooking class was one of the highlights of our visit to Bangkok. The instructor was funny and taught us so much about not only how to cook traditional Thai meals but the ingredients used for them. I was pleasantly surprised because I am usually never to be found in the kitchen. But the meals came out so good, aesthetically... More

Always love Thai food and we decided to learn how to cook authentic Thai food during the stay. It was a great fun day! We started by going to the local market and the instructor explained some special herbs and ingredients to us. After that we went back to the campus and started cooking. With step by step instructions, we... More

My wife and I were in Bangkok for a few days and decided to do a cooking class with Sompong Thai Cooking School based on all of the great reviews on this site. Our experience was exactly like everyone else's on here so I won't really go into too much detail about that but we did really enjoy the market... More

This cooking school has a great method. The instructor first demonstrates how to make a dish step by step. Everybody gets a little taste of it. Then each student receives a personal tray with all the same ingredients, and proceeds to make the dish, with whatever modifications they want based on what was just tasted. They offer clear directions how... More

One of the main attractions I wanted to do when visiting Thailand was a Thai cooking class. After reading the many reviews I chose Sompong. I was not disappointed. The class was undertaken in a professional manor in their actual home. This created such a warm feeling. The teachers who took our class spoke in English very well, were humorous... More

We really enjoyed our morning cooking class and visit to the nearby local market. The class was a good size, 12 people with one instructor and one assistant. We learned how to make three thai meals and mango/sticky rice for dessert. We enjoyed that we individually cooked each meal, so we actually learned how to make them and we each... More

Staying in Silom

Neighbourhood Profile
Silom
Despite the lack of any major tourist attractions, this lively neighborhood is a favorite of many. Whether it's the (somewhat naughty) nightlife of Soi Patpong, the various handicraft night markets or the plethora of dining options that tickle your fancy, a night out in Silom is a must on every itinerary. It's worth a stop during daytime, too: join office workers on a quest to tasty street food during lunch and shop at Silom Complex for a great mix of Thai and international stores. After a day of strolling around the congested sidewalks, a visit to Silom's Lumphini Park, Bangkok's answer to NYC's Central Park, is a welcome change of scenery.
