One of our favorite activities on holiday is a local cooking class. These classes are generally quite touristic, but still allows you to learn and taste more than you normally would in a restaurant. On our trip to Laos we also decided to join a cooking class in the amazing city of Luang Prabang.
One of the most famous cooking schools is run by one of the most famous restaurants in the city: Tamarind. The course runs from 9-3 in the afternoon, and involves a trip to the market, which is definitely not for the fainthearted. Once all ingredients are purchased there is a short transfer to the lake side location where the actual training takes place.
