Having fun attending a Thai Cookery Course

fully catered for - a range of substitutes for meat and special vegetarian dishes.
Wayfarers Travel runs its own cookery school in Chiang Mai. We cater to private groups who wish to take a course of one or two days and to choose the dishes that they cook. As we cater to private groups, you will know how many of you will be participating. Other schools have classes of up to 20 people participating which means there is little chance to ask questions or get a close up look at how it should be done. If you book as a group of four then you will take the class as a group of four. Price will be according to group size.

Our classes are scheduled from 9am-3pm. We can schedule evening classes according to availability.

Tour groups and travel agents are welcome to enquire about our classes. Please use our Agent Enquiry Form

Below you can see some suggested menus for the day. If you would like to do a dish not specified here, then please just let us know. E mail us with your Cookery Enquiry

This is the price per person for a 1 day course. The price is according to your group size as these courses are for private groups. It includes transport from your hotel to the school and back in the afternoon (only applies to hotels in the city area). You can choose either the market tour or the paste making. If you are doing 2 days then ideally you could do both of these activities. For people wanting to do a 2 day course - the first day we will visit the market and the second day make the chilli paste from scratch.
If you are booking a 2 day course we give a 10% discount off the total cost.

The advantage of our private group course is that you can be sure of a small group with intensive instruction. Other schools teach groups of 10 upwards which means you may not get to see the demonstrations clearly or pick up the tricks needed to produce good Thai cuisine.

If you are only one person or would like to join a group course, please click here for join in group programs.
