Day 11: Hội An Highlights. Who You’ll Meet. Where You’ll Sip & Savor.
Hội An Noodle Making Demonstration by Local Charity, and Country Side Bike Tour
We will enjoy a leisurely breakfast and morning then meet our local guide to visit a local charity Streets International for a “OODLES OF NOODLES” demonstration and lunch of traditional Hội An noodles and dishes, followed by lunch. Streets International’s mission is to “provide impoverished youth with professional level training and apprenticing, including English language and life skills, for careers in culinary arts and hospitality service.” Open Kitchen will donate a portion of our proceeds from our Việt-Nam Culinary Escapade to further Streets International’s mission.
Following the noodle making demonstration, we will join the Hội An Countryside Bike Tour for an idyllic ride through rice fields and rural countryside. You’ll ride through beautiful emerald villages with water buffalos on farmlands and meet local artisans who will be happy to share with you their crafts. There will be endless photo opportunities as we will take the most scenic country paths.
We will stop at a small fishing village for a cold drink and enjoy the local life and weather permitting, we will take a boat ride to discover the Thu Bồn River and its waterway. The scenic boat trip will take approximately 40 minutes.
Free Afternoon, Sunset Seafood BBQ Beach Dinner on An Bàng Beach
We will return to our hotel for a little rest before heading off by private bus to a wonderful Sunset Seafood BBQ beach dinner in An Bàng Beach prepared by our Local Chef!
