Full description
Meet your English-speaking guide in your hotel lobby and set out on a local food and lifestyle tour of Hanoi. Wander the streets of the Hanoi Old Quarter and experience the pulsing evening rhythm of an area renowned for its street food and lively atmosphere.  

Your first course will be Nom Bo Kho (dry beef salad), a tasty Hanoian favorite. Then, follow your guide to a spot that serves Nem Ran (fried spring roll), voted as one of the top ten greatest street foods in Hanoi. As you taste these local dishes, learn about the ingredients and instructions for preparing them on your own.

Continue to explore the street cuisine of Hanoi by walking to Ma May to try Banh Cuon (stuffed pancake). Visit the nearby Hai Thuong Lan Ong Street and learn how traditional medicine was made and used there.

Hear more about Hanoi nightlife as you enjoy a steaming bowl of Pho, perhaps the most famous Vietnamese dish, before visiting Nha Tho Lon (St. Joseph’s Cathedral) to admire the architecture of a structure which is said to resemble Notre Dame de Paris.

End your culinary immersion with Banh Mi (Vietnamese sandwich), the pride of Vietnamese cuisine that has recently surged in popularity worldwide. Digest your dinner with a Vietnamese egg coffee called Ca Phe Trung.
