Great Dining Discoveries in Hanoi and Halong Bay

First, your guide will escort you to the old quarter of the Vietnamese capital. Here you will come across locals enjoying their drinks and food by the side streets, sitting on small plastic chairs. It’s very characteristic of Hanoi people’s lifestyles. You may wish to join locals for a glass of beer, Bia Hoi, which is locally brewed. Following the beer you will be taken through narrow streets and lanes to a surprising old French colonial villa where sumptuous Vietnamese-French fusion cuisine will be served at Green Tangerine.

On the next day in Hanoi, be ready for fun and to experience a half-day cooking lesson. Your adventure starts at the local market, where you will be taken by your guide and chef. You will buy all the necessary ingredients, fresh vegetables and herbs. To make the experience more meaningful, your guide will explain about different types of herbs and spices used in Vietnamese cuisine. After shopping you will be guided by an expert English speaking chef to cook different items at Highway 4 restaurant, famous for its excellent traditional recipes. Enjoy your own cooked food for lunch.

In the evening, we will take you to KOTO restaurant. With a commitment towards helping youths in need, KOTO is also very focused on providing delicious cuisine of great quality to its customers.

KOTO is a not-for-profit restaurant and vocational training centre. It helps to change the lives of street kids and disadvantaged youth in Vietnam by providing them training and employment in the restaurant.

On day three, after breakfast, we drive you to Halong Bay, one of the natural wonders of the world. Thousands of limestone peaks rise up from its emerald waters. Halong Bay is listed as an UNESCO World Heritage Site. Enjoy the breathtaking views while cruising on a traditional junk. While enjoying the stunning scenery, you will be served fresh local seafood for lunch and dinner along with many other local dishes.

Afterwards, simply sleep if off with an overnight on the well appointed junk. The next day we drive back to Hanoi in the afternoon.
