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.

I actually did a few cooking classes in Hoi An since it is the food capital of Vietnam. This class is definitely one of the best cooking classes I have been to thus far. Hon is a great teacher and very informative, and the class is structured very nicely. I love that there were no shortcuts. We grounded our own... More

Overall this was a fantastic experience, even though it was pouring rain the entire day. We were picked up at our guesthouse and driven to the market in the morning and given rain ponchos to ensure we all stayed dry. Our instructor (I forget her name but she was a young female) was very knowledgeable and engaging, integrating humour and... More

This was one of the highlights of our time in Hoi An. Drang taught a wonderful class and it was very hands on! We started out day at the market, where she explained what each item was and how to pick the freshest ingredients. The class was just the right size and we were all able to make every part... More

We had a nice experience at the school. The instructor was knowledgeable and he demonstrated his cooking skills very well. The dishes that were attempted were well selected and the cooking events were well organized. However, there is also room for improvement. First, the instructor needs to speak louder. At times he was difficult to hear, especially in the chaotic... More

Really enjoyed this cookery class, a highlight of our Vietnam trip. Jan, our instructor, was excellent and I particularly enjoyed our trip to the market where she explained the ingredients that we'd be using. I have an allergy to shellfish which thankfully wasn't a problem and I cooked vegetarian versions of the dishes. Thank you Jan and all the team... More

We made delicious food in a wonderful setting in a coconut forest. Our guide Mo was the absolute best. Backdrop of ducks in the river and chickens in the yard. Great way to spend the morning.

Wonderful cooking class!! The market trip was informative and the boat ride to the island was relaxing and fun. We had 5 people in our group of friends and 5 others in the class and we became fast friends. The best part of the whole experience were our instructors Mo and Thy. They were so so awesome!! Thy was a... More

Shopped in market, boat trip to island then well organised cookery class. Not too demanding and we learnt four Vietnamese dishes. Thy and Mo were lovely hosts and results were delicious ! Pick up and return to hotel a bonus as staying out of town.

An informative and fun class. My 'chef' Jan was so friendly and really made this class one of the highlights of my travels in Vietnam. I am not a great cook but felt I achieved my best dishes ever in this class... and so delicious. I can't recommend enough!!!
