Thai cuisine is a wonderful blend of flavors and dishes and this exclusive non-traditional tour is tailor-made for guests who wish to learn how this delicious food is prepared and cooked. Boarding your mini-van at the pier, it's a short transfer to a local market where you'll be joined by a food expert who will accompany you as you select the fresh items to be used in preparing today's meal. A walk through this fascinating marketplace is a unique experience you'll be glad you didn't miss. As you wander amongst the small packed stalls selecting your ingredients, you gain some insights into local life while observing the hustle and bustle going on around you as the local islanders shop for their own daily staples.

Once you've secured all of your ingredients, you'll drive to the beautiful Nora Beach Resort & Spa where your cooking class will be conducted. Upon arrival, you'll be welcomed with a traditional Thai herbal beverage and then it's time to learn how to prepare your meal. As you watch your Chef prepare the food and explain the traditional methods that are used in Thai cooking, you'll be invited to don an apron and chef's hat and lend a hand. On the menu today is a tasty chicken soup, Deep-fried stuffed crabmeat in the original shell and Thai-style fried noodles, all of which you will be able to enjoy at the conclusion of your cooking class. Topping off your meal is a refreshing coconut ice cream treat served with seasonal fruits.

Feeling replete from your Thai mini-feast, you'll have an hour to relax and explore the resort at your leisure before returning to the pier. There is an inviting sundeck (first-come, first-served basis), sparkling pool and white sandy beach at your disposal. Beach towels are available at the hotel.

Please note: This tour includes limited walking and some sloping surfaces. However, because it is not wheelchair accessible, it is not available to wheelchair guests. Casual clothing and comfortable shoes are recommended. Guests should bring a credit card or U.S. dollars if they wish to purchase incidentals at the resort.
