What You Can Expect

Your Ho Chi Minh food experience kicks off with pickup from your city hotel. Follow an expert guide through the famous Ben Thanh Market, where you’ll wander past eclectic stalls filled with clothing and souvenirs like a local. Learn about the fresh ingredients and  aromatic herbs essential in this popular cuisine as you talk with local produce sellers. Your guide will share stories about this historic destination, which is the oldest surviving market of its kind in Vietnam’s most populated city.

Leave the market and head to the Vietnam Cookery Center for a real-life lesson in Vietnamese cuisine. You’ll have access to traditional equipment, expert chefs and fresh ingredients that are essential to producing the nation’s most popular dishes. The small-group cooking class offers up plenty of time and space for interacting with new friends and the professional chef will show you how to prepare papaya salad, chicken curry and coconut-centric dishes. Once you’ve stepped away from the stove, sit alongside your fellow classmates and enjoy the final product. With a new 4-course meal prepared every day of the week, no two classes are ever alike.

Once your belly is full head back to your hotel with a new understanding of Vietnamese culture, cooking and this flavorful cuisine.
