Full description
Upon arriving at the meeting point, you’ll be introduced to your local tour guide who will brief you on all the great stops you will check out. Your first stop will be at Quán Nước Mía 93, where you will try some freshly prepared spring rolls and green papaya salad paired with some tasty sugar cane juice. This stop prepares very typical south Vietnamese food, so expect lots of vibrant vegetables and refreshing flavors, the perfect way to kick off your tour!

Next up you will try the famous Vietnamese baguette, the bánh mì. Expect freshly baked bread filled with succulent meat or freshly caught fish topped with fresh zesty local salad. You also can pair this delicious Vietnamese staple with either a traditional coffee or fruit juice.

Your third stop will be at the very popular Ốc Đào restaurant. Here you’ll get to sample some of the country’s best seafood offerings. This will include locally sourced grilled shrimp and scallops as well as snails in butter accompanied by sauteed morning glory, a real southern delicacy! En route to your final stop, you will pass a great place to try out some local crab soup, so be sure to ask your guide if you would like to try it.

Finally, it will be time for dessert! You will hit the famous Trop B dessert shop to complete your culinary adventure. You will have a huge choice of sweet treats to choose from, including coconut ice cream with mulberry-flavoured sticky rice and refreshing bowls of mixed tropical fruits. Whatever you choose you won’t be disappointed. Still hungry? No problem! This is a great spot to try Bot Chien, a crispy rice cake. Simply ask your guide to order a tasty portion of these Vietnamese favourites.

At the conclusion of your tour, please speak to your guide about arranging taxis back to your hotel, other recommendations of places to visit or to be walked back to Bui Vien to continue the fun. Your helpful guide will be more than happy to assist you.
