Thai-cooking is an art the local people are more than happy to
share, with cookery schools and classes springing up countrywide;
Bangkok, Phuket, Koh Samui and Chiang Mai are the leading
destinations for this appetising endeavour. Many resorts and hotels
offer these courses for guests. The lessons are relatively cheap
and feature unique highlights, from watching professional hotel
chefs at work, to a more hands-on approach with local market
shopping trips and a free recipe book. Course schedules vary from
introductory classes aimed at providing a basic knowledge of Thai
food to 10 days of intense and advanced culinary instruction.
Most of the schools or instructors have websites providing
course and contact details, and internet bookings are possible.
This is a wonderful activity that will stay with travellers long
after their tans have faded, ensuring a vacation reminder and skill
