Amazing experience with Vannee !
"I had a memorable experience with Vannee. She is very caring and very flexible. I learned a lot with her and I highly recommend this activity while in Chiang Mai ! "SandrineAbout local Vannee Chiang Mai, October 2023
Great Thai cooking experience!
"We really enjoyed our Thai cooking experience with Vannee and her family. We were picked up by Vannee’s husband ať our hotel. We decided on our 4 dishes and then visited a local market where we had fun shopping for the ingredients for our lunch. We drove to Vannee’s house and began our cooking - Vannee was fantastic! Very warm and very clear in her instructions - all with a beautiful smile. We made pad Thai, green chicken curry, morning glory vegetable and banana in coconut cream. It was all delicious. We left with a nice little cookbook with 50 recipes in it, and were dropped home. We highly recommend!"MAbout local Vannee Chiang Mai, September 2023
Amazing Thai Cooking Lesson
"Vannee and her family could not have been more helpful. They picked us up from our hotel, drove us to a beautiful market to buy food and took us to a well- planned outdoor kitchen. We are a family with two teenagers and Vannee treated them like her own sons. We cooked three dishes, learnt different techniques and were even given her cookbook! The food was absolutely delicious. I can’t recommend this experience strongly enough! Thanks Vannee!! "BeaAbout local Vannee Chiang Mai, September 2023
Brilliant cooking lesson
"Our whole family (kids ranging from 10 to 16) loved this lesson. Just the right length and plenty of foods. Two of our boys said (their) pad Thai was the best meal they'd ever tasted."ChristianAbout local Vannee Chiang Mai, August 2023

Fun day ziplining through the jungle
"Minty was a great guide taking us for a day of white water rafting and ziplining The ziplining place we were meant to go was closed for construction work but the alternative, King Kong Smile zipline was amazing too with a 1.2km zipling across a jungle valley with small village buildings visible far below"MaddyAbout local MintyChiang Mai, May 2023
Unique cooking experience
"This was a very special experience for our us as a family. We took our 2 girls and they enjoyed choosing the ingredients at the market, cutting and preparing the ingredients and then of course eating it. It was delicious and such a neat way to experience local food at a local’s own home. Would definitely recommend!"AngieAbout local Vannee Chiang Mai, April 2023

Great epcerience and great food
"Banner and her husband are both very nice people; they even offered to pick us up even if that was not included in the experience, which was very nice of them. Banner is very knowledgeable about Thai food and she taught us how to cook some delicious dishes. Now even know how to make Kaho Soi! Further she left us a recipe book containing a lot of great Thai recipes!"DavideAbout local Vannee Chiang Mai, February 2023
