Hội An Highlights. Who You’ll Meet. Where You’ll Sip & Savor.
Bicycle Ride to Local Market and through Rice Paddies and Organic Garden, Cooking Class, and Lunch
After breakfast at the hotel, we will meet our Local Guide for a delightful bicycle ride to a colorful local market to purchase fresh ingredients for our hands-on cooking class and lunch that day. Our cooking instructor, a wonderful, knowledgeable Local Chef, has designed a cooking menu featuring Hội An’s distinctive regional cuisine. We will be cooking at his family’s charming restaurant on An Bàng Beach, a beautiful 3-mile stretch of sandy, peaceful beach about 2 miles outside Hội An. An Bàng Beach was featured in CNN’s list of top 100 best beaches in the world in 2016.
At the market we will have the opportunity to meet vendors as we select our ingredients – this will give you a genuine Vietnamese atmosphere of local life.
We will then ride our bicycles, with our purchases, through rice paddies and a vegetable village, to An Bàng Beach. After some cool drinks, we will begin our cooking class! Our Chef will discuss local spices and their uses and benefits, while working with you to prepare three delicious dishes.
We will enjoy our lunch and take in the vibe of the local village. After lunch, we’ll have a chance to take a walk on this beautiful beach, go for a swim, or have a drink under an umbrella and enjoy the view.
Free Afternoon and Evening to enjoy in Hội An
After our wonderful day at An Bàng Beach, we’ll ride back to our hotel for some free time for the afternoon and evening to stroll the streets and enjoy the night market. We will provide sightseeing and dining recommendations.
