Live like a Local in North Vietnam

January 14, 2018 by Khiri Travel |

On this homestay excursion you’ll experience countryside life in Ky Son Village — preparing traditional Vietnamese foods with the residents, shopping at the local market, collecting tea leaves for a customary foot “spa”, and observing the evening worship.

Join in the morning exercises of the locals, which will warm you up for your leisurely bike ride through paddy fields to visit Dong Tam Village — where you’ll have lunch with some new Vietnamese friends.

Take a sampan ride (a old-style wooden boat) through the But Cave Complex and explore the dry and water-filled caves.

This tour offers the chance to discover a little-known part of Vietnam and experience foreign customs while still fitting in some relaxation and some time to enjoy the thing Vietnam is famous for — food!
