Mina’s Curry Pot and an Island of Dreams

December 12, 2013 by Khiri Travel | Filed Under: , , , ,

Right in the center of spectacular Phang Nga Bay in southern Thailand, we find the Yao Islands. The smaller one of the two, Koh Yao Noi, is where Khun Mina lives. She inhabits a lovely traditional Thai house in a quiet neighborhood just outside the market.

Mina is an expert cook and a most charming host. She’ll show us how to make some classic Thai dishes such as a variety of curry, stir-fried dishes and a local spicy salad (depending of course on local availability and seasons).

If guests are more interested in relaxing, feel free to do so in the large garden. The views of the ocean and rice fields surrounding the house are amazing.

At her house, we enjoy our own cooked lunch, after which perhaps more relaxing is required. The Khiri guide that joins us might take us for a walk around Koh Yao Noi island. By doing so, we learn about the local community and maybe do a little shopping, or enjoy a cup of traditional coffee on the street. When we’ve seen the island and our stomachs are full, we take a longtail boat back to the mainland. On the way, great vistas reward us.

The cooking class at Mina’s house can be booked from Phuket, Krabi or other destinations adjacent to Phang Nga Bay. For more information and bookings, please contact [email protected].
