The leading activity in Silom according to Trip Advisor is Silom Thai Cooking School. While you might disagree with how Trip Advisor arrives at such subjective conclusions, it is worth pointing out that a few hours at Silom Thai Cooking School learning how to cook your favourite Thai dishes is a pleasant way to spend a few hours.
The sessions take up an afternoon. First you go to the market with your teacher to source fresh ingredients. This is a fun part of the day as it helps you to understand Thai street markets better and you can watch how a Thai person shops.
You then return to the school and make 3 Thai dishes. Finally, you sit down and try out the food you have made. Be sure to bring a good appetite, especially if there are 2 of you – 6 dishes to eat can be a challenge.
The chefs are fun and speak good English. As someone pointed out on TA this makes a perfect activity for a rainy day in the city.
