Highlights. Who You’ll Meet. Where You’ll Sip & Savor.
Market Tour, Cooking Class, and Lunch
We will begin our first full day in Hà Nội with a delightful Local Chef who will guide us on a tour of a Ha Noi market to purchase seasonally fresh ingredients for our hands-on cooking class of traditional Hanoian Cuisine. In this hands-on cooking class, you’ll learn the fundamentals of food preparation, ingredients, and style of Northern Vietnamese dishes and experience Vietnamese history and culture through these dishes.
We will cook and feast on a multi-course lunch at our Chef’s beautiful Indochine-period villa.
We’ll return to our hotel for some rest after the day’s cooking class and lunch.
Hà Nội by Night Culinary Adventure
Pre-sunset, we’ll meet our Local Guide for a culinary tour of Hanoi’s famous Old Quarter.
Our first stop will be at one of the highest rooftop sky bars in Hà Nội’s Old Quarter where you’ll have a chance to capture some sunset photos of your time in Hà Nội.
Next, we’ll tour hidden alleys and traditional architecture around Old Quarter.
For dinner, we’ll graze the food carts lining Hà Nội’s streets and taste its indigenous cuisine. You’ll have a chance to chat with street food vendors to learn about techniques and ingredients or simply enjoy the vibrancy of life on the streets of Hà Nội.
After dinner, we’ll venture to a fun bar to experience the iconic Phở as a cocktail! We’ll taste the spices and flavors that make up the best part of Phở in a flaming cocktail. Next, we’ll stop for a flight of craft beer at one of the best craft beer taprooms in Hà Nội.
