A Glimpse Of Northern Vietnam 5 Days

Itinerary

Day 1:

Hanoi Arrival – Walkie Foodie tour Meet your tour guide on arrival at Hanoi international airport and transfer to the city center for hotel check-in. Hotel rooms may not be ready until 14:00 hrs but an early check-in would be guaranteed with a surcharge.

At 17:30 Join in a Walkie Foodie tour. We will take you to go inside the small lane and alleys inside the Hanoi Old Quarter and show you how real Hanoians live, work and eat.

The old quarter of Hanoi formed the core of the legendary “Hanoi of 36 guild streets” where goods and crafts were traded in specialized streets formed by traders and craftsmen from clans and villages all over the country. In the course of their migration to the city they brought along their culture, habits and local delicacies that were gradually adopted in the Hanoians’ way of life. So, it is here that the street food scene is overwhelming and should not be missed during your journey of life time to Vietnam as a whole and to Hanoi in particular.

Embark on a walking/street food tour through Hanoi’s best culinary spots alongside a renowned food blogger. This local insider possesses an enormous passion for his country’s cuisine, resulting in a blog that has gained a large following both in Vietnam and internationally.

Join the specialist street food guide with the walking street food tour of Hanoi; a comfortable pair of walking shoes is recommended!

By far our most popular tour, this tour is great fun and perfect way to discover some of the lesser known dishes that the locals love to eat. From Bun Bo (Sauteed Beef Rice Vermicelli), Banh Cuon (Steamed rice rolls), “Banh Mi” and end with unique Ca Phe Trung (Egg Coffee) which will round off our four courses perfectly. Local life, local stories; local food and local drink tasting. It’s the little things that make all the difference in your travel experience!
