Bay Mau Cooking Class and Fishing Pond are located on the riverfront in the beautiful Cam Thanh Hamlet. Bay Mau is a brother class to the popular Thuan Tinh Island Cooking Class. The Bay Mau Cooking Class is held at a traditional thatched Nha San (Coconut House), elevated above the water by poles. You can enjoy the fresh air and outstanding views during the tour and cooking class, something you will remember for a long time.
Tour guide will pick up you at the hotel and accompany you to the local markets with a shopping list! You will have a chance to meet the market traders and be taught to how to select the freshest local ingredients. This must be a truly memorable experience.
Then we will transport along the Thu Bon River by boats. This river meanders into the ocean about 5 km away from Hoi An Old Town. During the boat ride, you can enjoy the river views and see people living and working on the river.
We then transfer into smaller Basket Boats. Along the way the crew will teach you how to make hats, necklaces, rings and other items from the water coconut trees that play such an important part of the local economy and ecosystem. Many of the Cam Thanh locals earn their living on these trees.
Upon arrival to Bay Mau, you can catch fish and crab in the river and the pond. We will then grind rice in a Coi Da (stone wheel) to make rice flour in the old way. With handmade rice flour and the fresh ingredients, you purchased in the markets, you are ready to begin with cooking class!
Finally, as you still savor the tastes and knowledge of amazing Vietnamese food, we board the basket boat back, dropping you off in the Old Town of Hoi An, where this amazing journey started.
