Rated highly by travellers is this delightful, hands-on cooking course run by the charismatic May from her family home. The daytime course includes a visit to the market to shop for ingredients (with accommodations made for dietary restrictions), followed by a walk back to May's house for preparation – using charcoal fires to make curries, soups, salads and other dishes.

It's a great way to learn more about Burmese food, customs and culture, and May gives back to the community, with 20% of earnings going towards a town library.
