“Floating market was cool where the noodle soup was incredible. Cocoa farm was surprisingly interesting, the cocoa wine being a highlight for me. Rice noodle factory was also interesting and we got to get involved with the process a little before a noodle pizza, which was great. We may have paid a tiny bit more than with other operators but were convinced by the professionalism and helpfulness of the girl on the desk whereas other operators’ staff seemed completely disinterested. We absolutely think we got our money’s worth”. Reviewed by Amit
