    Hi everyone, it's my first post, so here goes!!

    I have four weeks in Thailand this summer; planning a few days in Bangkok, Ko Phi Phi, and Khao Sok National Park, and not sure after that. I'd like to do a cookery course but it seems like you can only do them in Chiang Mai ; I'm reluctant to make the trek up to Chiang Mai as it seems the principal reason to do so is to go trekking to the hill tribes, which really doesn't appeal to me. Is there anywhere down south to do a good cookery course, or am I wrong about Chiang Mai? I just think I'd feel very uncomfortable walking through villages just to look at the people!

    I saw this vegetarian/vegan school last time I was in Bangkok. It's quite close to Banglamphoo in the Samsen District along Thanon Samsen on the river side of the street.

    May Kaidee's Vegetarian and Vegan Cooking School

    Definitely no need to go to Chiangmai. Cooking schools are all over the place.

    Hi-
    You might also be interested in classes offered in Nonthaburi by Khun Pip of Thai House: http://www.thaihouse.co.th/ I took a 3 day course years ago and thought it excellent, plus a nice getaway from Bangkok- it's upriver by about an hour and you go by boat, which is a great way to start a culinary adventure. Their accommodations are in a lovely reconstructed group of teak houses arranged around a deck, in traditional Thai style. Nonthaburi used to be a community of canals and you can take a boat and explore the local 'roads' and see how folks lived in a previous era. Oh, and the food you will be cooking is also delicious! Khun Pip is lovely and gives a great market tour to start the class.
