What You Can Expect
Greet your small group at a central location in Hoi An and follow your guide through the meandering maze of the Old Town. Begin your epicurean adventure at a local bakery and treat your taste buds to the local specialty of bahn mi, a delicious baguette stuffed with fine local ingredients.
Next, slide into a seat at a local eatery to devour bahn can crackers, hot and crunchy biscuits smothered in tender pork, soft quail eggs and fresh salad. Continue into the historical heart of the city and immerse yourself in the bustling atmosphere of the central market, an exuberant sprawl of street hawkers and food stalls. Follow your guide past stalls selling everything from live seafood to sweet treats and learn about the cultural significance of some of Hoi An’s most popular dishes.
After exploring the market, weave your way through the Old Town’s alleys in search of two more local specialties; sample deep fried wonton and white rose dumplings before revitalizing at a thousand-year-old well reputed to supply the best water for a revered indigenous dish.
Head to a vegetarian restaurant to feast on a bounteous buffet and then sample a traditional mussel salad before finishing your feast with dessert in a local’s home. Suitably sated, sip an aromatic coffee or refreshing beer at a riverfront café while enjoying views of the illuminated Japanese covered bridge.
Bid your guide and group farewell at this enchanting location and make your own way back to your hotel.
