    In which restaurant can I eat the famous sticky rice with mangoes?

    Hey Angie, When I was in Bangkok, if I came across a restaurant NOT serving this dish I would be amazed! It's served everywhere and is incredibly popular (and delicious). I found the best experience would pretty consistently be from street stalls and night markets rather than restaurants. The Sukhumvit Soi (38) night market has heaps of stalls offering it. Get the sky train to Thonglor station and it’s just a short walk to the wonderful land of mango sticky rice! Kate over 8 years ago

    where is the best hotel on the beach in Legian Bali

    Hey Coralyn, It depends on your price range. At the luxurious, not lifting a finger and possibliy being fed grapes while lazing on the sand end of the scale The Legian has flawless reviews http://www.thelegianbali.com/. Although I sometimes believe you dont need to splurge on accommodation so much when already in such a beautiful location. Legian offers heaps of beach front accommodation. SIA holidays has a good selection including reviews http://www.siaholidays.com.au/hotel-search/region-LEG-balilegianhotels/. Hope this helps, I wish I was going to Legian too! Kate over 8 years ago

    What cooking school is the best place to learn how to cook Thai food?

    Hey Angie, I went to Bann Thai Cooking School in Chiang Mai and LOVED it http://www.cookinthai.com/index.php. This was a few years ago though, I hope it’s still the same! We made our own Thai curry pastes and visited the local market in the morning. The class was quite small, around 8 people and it’s held in a local’s house so I felt there was a really homely and welcoming feel to the day. The food we cooked was really authentic and I learnt recipes I still use today (4 years later). I remember a seafood coconut broth we made being one of the best things we ate on the entire trip! One of my friends (for some more recent advice :) recently went Baipai http://baipai.com/ in Bangkok. She said it was good, but the food was taught in a more westernised way (less chilli and Thai spices) and was marketed towards an older crowd. Whichever you choose, Thai cooking is easy once you get the hang of it. Hope this helps, happy cooking! Kate over 8 years ago
