The most beautiful home! The most welcoming family! Pip teaches with such enthusiasm, and the knowledge that can only come from a lifetime of experience. Book this house! Book this class! You don't have to do both, but honestly you should. We stayed 6 days, and I took the 3 day cooking course. Even on the first day of class we were learning to make curry paste in the mortar and pestle. This family holds nothing back; the secrets of Thai cooking in a traditional manner, and what it's like to have lived on the same property for 5 generations! It's absolutely incredible. See Thailand as it used to be. It's surrounded by greenery, fruit orchards, plant nurseries, and of course the canal. The property is immaculately and lovingly maintained, super clean. Pang can help you visit Bangkok via any mode of transport that fits your budget. We used many of them. Private taxi, boat taxi, sky train, public bus. And when they take you to the market they explain what everything is and how to use it. They even directed us to this market to buy souvenirs that was completely for Thai people! Not a westerner or "falang" in sight! If you're worried about no air conditioning (I was) don't be! It cools down considerably at night here because it's surrounded by greenery. It's amazing what intelligent architecture and green space does! The air is cleaner than Bangkok, the temp is cooler, the sounds of nature are around you. Honestly, I can't wait to go back.
