ITINERARY BY DAY
HANOI STREET FOOD HALF DAY TOUR (M)
Depart your hotel at 09:30AM or 03:00PM, start the day at one of the inner city’s finest local “pho”, Vietnam’s national dish. Large choices of “pho bo” (beef noodle soup) and “Pho ga” (chicken noodle soup).
Continue to one of city last remaining ‘wet markets’ where a huge array of produce is sold. In the morning the market is abuzz with shoppers buying what they need for the day’s meals. Everything from fresh tropical fruits, an abundance of fragrant herbs, fresh meats, fresh flowers and even live fish and frogs are sold! Vietnamese cuisine is highly regarded as one of the world’s best, but few realize the variations that are found in the cuisine. At the market, sample some of the available dishes for a second snack today.
Then walk through the backstreets where small vendors set up their stalls along the road. Take a rest whilst enjoying some excellent street food including “banh xeo”, and “bun cha” (fresh rice noodles with grilled pork and herbs) or “hoa qua dam” (fresh fruits).
Walk down the Old Quarter’s corners, and enjoy a cup of Vietnamese coffee or tea before returning to your hotel.
