A Fabulous Food-lovers Tour

This comprehensive itinerary focuses on the grandeur of Vietnam’s French colonial history and the country’s world famous cuisine. You will stay at various Colonial hotels throughout. Telling the story of Vietnam’s amazing architecture, landscapes and history, the tour will inform and delight from start to finish. The tour takes in Hanoi, the capital; Hue, the former capital; the gorgeous town of Hoi An; the hillside town of Dalat and Vietnam’s largest city, Ho Chi Minh, the former Saigon.

In Hanoi you’ll enjoy a superb food tour by famous gastronome and editor of Culinary Art magazine, Mr Duc Connor. This is a highlight of the tour. Stroll round the markets experiencing the sights, sounds and smells of the produce on sale. The city’s famous Old Quarter will enthrall you as you stop off at Ly Quoc Su Street to sample Banh Goi, a pan fried dish of mashed, pork, and vermicelli, which is served with vegetables and bean sprouts. On Hang Manh Street you get to enjoy Bun Cha, which is grilled fatty pork with white rice noodles and herbs with a side dish of dipping sauce. At Hang Da Market you can enjoy assorted sweet fried fruits. This food adventure finishes at a famous restaurant called Cha Ca La Vong. They only serve one dish; grilled boneless pieces of fish served with greens and a saffron-infused oil. Served straight from the frying pan to your plate, it is a worthy conclusion to a superb food trip.

Our itinerary here is merely a suggestion, and can be tailored to suit your every need.
