Option 1: Red Bridge Cooking Class
We start the day at 8.15am with a welcome drink at Hai Café – our meeting point.
We visit Hoi An’s colorful market, and experience the amazing sights, sounds, and aromas of this busy market. We even have the opportunity to interact with local sellers and learn about all the ingredients to be used in the cooking lesson later.
We board the Red Bridge boat for a leisurely cruise (25 minutes) along the Hoi An River to the Red Bridge Cooking School. This is a chance to view local river life, so make sure your camera is handy.
On arrival, we explore the cooking school’s herb garden before learning about some of Hoi An’s and Vietnam’s well-known dishes. The cooking lesson runs for about 2 hours – the Red Bridge chefs first demonstrate each dish before we prepare the same dish ourselves.
The class also includes a brief introduction to Vietnamese food carving (plate decoration). After the lesson, we sit down and eat what we have cooked!
Bring your swimsuit along because once we’re done feasting, we can relax and swim in the 20 metre swimming pool — towels and showers provided.
You’ll be transferred back to your hotel and you’re free to spend the rest of the day as you choose.
Optional: After the cooking class and lunch, we may proceed to go to Hoi An beach to enjoy swimming until it is time to get back your hotel at around 5:00pm. You can stay a bit longer at the beach to have dinner with seafood or you may got back to the town to explore the site yourself.Read More
