This tour takes us from North to South Vietnam while taking in a myriad of culinary delights in Hanoi, Halong Bay, Hoi An, Hue and Ho Chi Minh City. The tour begins in Hanoi with a city tour and a cookery lesson in the heart of Hanoi’s old quarter.
We continue on from Hanoi to the world famous Halong Bay to enjoy an overnight cruise with Vietnamese seafood feasts. A short flight to Danang in central Vietnam takes us to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Hoi An, one of the most charming and beautiful towns in Southeast Asia. Here we can enjoy glorious food at many of Hoi An’s superb restaurants, but it is also near to Hoi An where we learn all about the cultivation of rice in a local village, as well as learning the art of pancakes at a local home.
From here we head north to Hue, another beautiful UNESCO World Heritage Site where we enjoy a wonderful cookery lesson but also an Exclusive Dinner Party at the lovely Tha Om Garden House. The tour ends in Ho Chi Minh City, previously known as Saigon, for more excellent dining opportunities and incredible street food.
