DAY 2

Mekong Delta - My Tho and Be

A trip to the Mekong Delta offers a glimpse into the unique and distinct agrarian life of the vibrant southern Delta region. We will enjoy a cruise along the Mekong River to one of the Islands (located in the town of My Tho) where we will be entertained with traditional music while enjoying some tea sweetened with bee’s honey. We will then take a paddle-boat to cruise through the narrow canals of the Mekong. The paddle-boat ride provides an interesting look into local cottage industry of making coconut candies. We will then have a lunch of ‘Elephant Ear’ fish combined with other delicious Vietnamese dishes – a local specialty. Foodie trails is the perfect way for our guests from all over the world to experience the local cuisine and culture of Viet Nam. On this tour, you will spend an evening dining as the locals do and taste authentically prepared dishes that you won’t find anywhere else. If you want to truly experience Ho Chi Minh City is by motorbike. Your tour guide will pick you up for a motorbike ride around Sai Gon where you can enjoy some local foods. You may spend a few minutes in the traffic but you will forget all about it by the time dessert is served. Enjoy Vietnamese delicacies in the relaxing park setting. Afterwards, we will take a walk around the park to watch the ladies do their aerobics classes and the children practicing martial arts.   Next we will stop to try some of Sai Gon’s famous steamed and roasted shellfish dishes. Try some well-known local spots. Don’t forget to try a local beer while you’re at it. Then, we will return you to your hotel. Overnight in Ho Chi Minh City. Read more

DAY 4

Da Nang - Food Tour with Sea

In the afternoon, your tour guide will pick you up by motorbike and give you a ride to Con Market-the largest wholesale and retail venue in the central region, with over 2,000 traders operating there. Various types of goods are sold at the venue to satisfy the increasing shopping demands of the local residents and tens of thousands of customers are welcomed every day. Sample some local specialties while the market buzzes on around you. Highly recommended are Mi Quang, a flavorful mix of meat, prawns, turmeric noodles and vegetables infused in thick broth and sprinkled with tasty toppings; Banh Xeo (meaning sizzling pancake), a savory pancake made using Rice flour and turmeric powder stuffed with pork, beansprouts, shrimp and herbs accompanied by a special Da Nang dipping sauce; or Da Nang’s version of a Northern favorite-Bun cha ca (fish cake noodle soup), fish cake, herbs and noodles in a fruity fragrant broth. Absolutely not to be missed is a taste of the unique sweet soups of Da Nang, which include ingredients such as lotus seed and peas, mixed together. We know it sounds strange, but actually it’s more like a desert than a soup and believe us it tastes so good that most foreigners like, or even love it! The cooking methods of these sweet treats have been perfected over many generations; you certainly will not forget the taste of sweet soup here. We save the best for last, on the final stop of this tour we will ride on to Da Nang’s most famous seafood street which is not far from the stunning My Khe Beach. Find out what all the fuss is about by digging in to a delicious selection of fresh shellfish dishes, which are perfectly complimented by a beer. Return to your hotel. Overnight in Da Nang.   Note: Foreigners in Viet Nam are allowed to drive a motorbike only with a Vietnamese driver’s license. Purchasing this tour, you should be aware of and abide by the Vietnamese Law. Read more
