PROFESSIONAL THAI CULINARY PROGRAM

“For Those Serious About Learning Thai Cooking”

Hua Hin is the home of the King of Thailand.  Because of this, it is clean, safe, and well-protected.  Our Academy is conveniently located in Hua Hin which is 180 km south of Bangkok on the Gulf of Thailand.  Because of the Gulf breezes, it is normally cooler than Bangkok, and the air is much cleaner.  The beaches are beautiful, and the seafood is incredible.  Hua Hin is a short van ride from Bangkok.  To learn more about the good things being said about Hua Hin, please refer to these links:  LONELY PLANETTRIP ADVISOR VIRTUAL TOURIST.  There is no place more convenient to learn Thai cooking than where we are located.  Advanced Chef courses are taught at our Bangkok and Phuket campuses.
