I'd give this 6 stars if I could! Had a fantastic morning with Sun. We really enjoyed all the stops and having Sun with us allowed us to access and interact with locals on a totally different level. Mum really enjoyed being with the families in the market while I particularly liked the rice noodle making and rice paper - especially the spring rolls! So many different processes in all these traditional foods and crafts that we are always astounded by them. Totally recommended.
