You don’t have to be a master chef to join a cooking class in Thailand. You don’t need to have any kitchen skills really. The only thing you’ll need is a love for food.
If you walk through the streets of any Thai town or city and your sensations are dazed by the smells from the small street stalls, you are on a good way to enjoy a cooking class. If your mouth gets watery just thinking about the next exotic dish you are going to try on your travels, you should consider learning how to bring the little adventure home with you. If you wonder what are the names of all the beautiful fresh herbs and spices, you’d most likely enjoy yourself watching how to use them in the traditional cuisine. Only if you don’t like Thai food, I would recommend to skip this experience during your trip. Otherwise, you should definitely give it a try.
Don’t get scared away when arriving to Bangkok for the first time. Yes, this city can be a bit overwhelming at the beginning. It’s full of people and even fuller of vehicles of all sorts. There are lots of new smells and flavours, not appealing to everyone at the commencement of the holidays. But if you give it more time, before quickly “escaping” to the islands, you will find yourself in a place that offers so much more than that. And it doesn’t have to be necessarily all about temples either.
So What To Do In Bangkok? Here is a list of my favourite things to do and spots to visit.
Bangkok. You will most likely love it or you will hate it. There are no more feelings than that for most travellers. Many people told me not to worry about Bangkok when travelling to Thailand and don’t spend too much time there because I won’t like it, as it is busy and chaotic, bustling with people, full of smells and the traffic there is never ending. And they were right about it. Except one fact. I loved it!
