Cooking schools in Thailand

Jump to last reply

We were consider spending the xmas period in Mexico and/or Central America but decent flights from teh UK proved prohibitively expensive. In the end I managed to find some surprisingly cheap flights with Thai Airways from Heathrow and have booked those for early December.

We are planning on spending a few days over Xmas in Bangkok possibly at the new Aloft place which seems quite nice and has some good rates - anyone know anything about this place? http://www.starwoodhotels.com/alofthotels/property/overview/index.html?propertyID=3211 seems like a reasonable location. An alternative is the Adelphi Suites which seems pretty popular with many here - any thoughts?

Other than Bangkok we would like to take a cookery course for a few days and have stumbled upon http://www.thaicookeryschool.com/ which can include a "homestay" anyone know anything about this place or of any other schools in Thailand worth considering?

Other than these stays we are looking at either incorporating some beach/diving time maybe in Khao Lak or perhaps one of the smaller islands (no news/no shoes type place). We stayed on Koh Libong a few years ago and really liked it but is was VERY quiet. One thought is koh Lanta but I am wondering how busy it will be these days - any thoughts.
Any input would be greatly appreciated.
