Embark on a culinary and sightseeing journey that's uniquely Vietnamese with a cooking tour, buffalo cart ride, boat trip, and relaxing massage. Join local chefs for a market tour and cooking demonstration and learn the secrets of what makes the country's cuisine so distinct.
After you're picked up from your hotel, meet your friendly guide and take a walk through a bustling local market. Marvel at the variety of colorful fruits, vegetables, and herbs, on display, as well as fresh seafood and meats. Pick up all the necessary ingredients to prepare an authentic Vietnamese feast before making your way to a nearby riverbed for a serene bamboo boat ride. Drift peacefully along a gentle current before docking and hopping aboard a buffalo-drawn cart that takes you to the location of your cooking class.
Meet your generous hosts, who welcome you with a tranquil foot, head, and shoulder massage from a professional masseuse. With relaxed muscles and a heightened sense of calm, don a white hat and apron and help your guides prepare 4 different dishes—green mango salad with seafood, fresh spring rolls, Vietnamese pancakes, and sautéed chicken with lemongrass and chili are on the menu.
After your food spread is prepared, sit down with your group and enjoy a meal that's bursting with flavor and spice. Bid adieu to your hosts with a smiling face and a full belly, and then kick back for a hassle-free trip back to your hotel.
