This adventure will include a visit to a local produce market and a boat trip along the beautiful Thu Bon River, with sights that include the island of Cam Nam and Duy Hai fishing village, as you pass under the majestic Cua Dai Bridge.  Your adventure continues on a fun-filled Basket Boat ride through the Water Palm Village, followed by a ride in a water buffalo cart that will take you to the local supplier's cooking school and restaurant. Upon arrival, you can then unwind by soaking up the joys of a foot, head, and shoulder massage.  The menu for the cooking class includes the following Vietnamese dishes:

This was an absolutely fantastic experience, even though we had bad weather every part of the trip was enjoyable. Our chef/guide Be was incredible and I loved her energy! Starting with the market tour, followed by the boat trip, and then, to the cooking school, everything was really nicely organised, and I was really lucky as a vegetarian traveller that I was with a group where there are multiple vegetarians. They were able to cater for us perfectly, and I’ve learned so many exciting new skills to take back home with me!

Totally liked the cooking tour, especially our guide & „chef“ Ms Hung was very friendly, spoke good english and accomodated perfectly to our dietary requests & special wishes. She is great and really made this a worthy experience. I am usually not so much into cooking, but this class was good fun anyway, even for me! The only annoying thing was that the event also should have included a ride in a buffalo cart. However, we could not do this, as no buffalo even existed… Thats a pity as I was looking forward to this part of the event - and it was specifically mentioned as included activity of our tour booked through GetYourGuide. Therefore only 4 stars, description should fit reality, otherwise 5.

What an incredible experience! We started with a nice tour around the market, then we jumped on a ferry up the Thu Bon river, onto a basket boat to Sabirama. It was a treat to get to make 4 dishes from scratch, each dish the chef explained each ingredient and how they blended together. I was lucky, since one of the dishes (bun cuon) is me favorite and I have never made it from scratch before. If you are looking for a fun and yummy experience, this is for you.
