We went to Yings today and had a great time. Ying is so nice and we learned a lot. Both our children 12 & 14 had a great time. Her parents are lovely as well. The best thing we have ever done here in Samui.

We took the class in August with our 5 year old. It was around 5 hours total with the shopping trip. She will pick you up at your hotel in the morning and you are done around 2pm.
