What To Expect
Discover the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Hoi An Ancient Town after the sun has gone down and get to experience its bustling food scene.
Start your tour as you walk you through local cafes, food stalls, markets and restaurants. Stop at a local bakery that has been making the tastiest banh mi in town for over twenty years. They use the freshest local ingredients and are famous for their banh mi, a scrumptious sandwich that will fire up your taste buds and get them ready for the flavours ahead!
From one local favorite to another, join locals at a small eatery, and sample hot and crunchy banh can crackers. Served with quail eggs, pork, and a tasty salad, this dish is one of the highlights of the local food scene and an absolute must-devour.
Continue to the central market and find street hawkers and food stalls selling a staggering array of local produce, including fresh noodles, sweet jelly, seasonal fruits and live seafood. Your knowledgeable local guide will walk you through the colourful array of ingredients, filling you in on the most popular dishes in the city and the significance of these foods to the traditional culture of central Vietnam.
From here, dig even deeper into the local food scene, passing through a maze of tiny alleys to emerge at one of the favorite restaurants in Hoi An. Sample two of Hoi An's specialties - deep fried wonton and white rose dumplings.
Take a little break to visit Ba Le Well, a thousand-year-old well that supplies locals with clean, plentiful water all year round. It's considered by locals to be the best water with which to make cao lau, a noodle dish that originated in the city.
Tour continues at a vegetarian restaurant, where a buffet of fresh food awaits. Be sure to save space as we still have mussel salad waiting for us at another local spot, followed by delicious cake for dessert in a local's home.
Finish your adventure at a local cafe near the iconic Japanese Covered Bridge, which is the perfect spot to conclude your culinary escapade. Top off the tour with a Vietnamese coffee or beer while taking in the gentle pace of the city.
