If you come to Phuket between May and November, you’ll get to experience the Monsoon season. Don’t let the name intimidate you – it’s really not as bad as it sounds. Rather than being stuck inside your hotel room when the skies turn grey, why not take a cooking class?

There are two major cooking schools in Phuket: The Blue Elephant Cooking School and Mom Tri’s Boathouse. Classes usually last 2 to 3 hours. and end with a lunch, where the students share the dishes they’ve made. You’ll go home knowing how to make traditional dishes like Som Tum (fresh green papaya salad), Tom Yam Goong (spicy soup with prawns) and Pad Thai Talay (stir-fried noodles with seafood).
