What To Expect
Following pick-up from the hotel in the morning, you will journey to Van Giang village, about 25 kilometers away from Hanoi center. There you will get to walk along the tree-lined streets to the local market. Walk through the village to an old house for a cooking lesson with a pleasant and friendly local host who will teach you to prepare and cook a tasty lunch using ingredients freshly picked from his vegetable garden. In the afternoon, you will watch a traditional music performance in the yard, talk with the performers and learn to sing a song.
After Van Giang, you will head to Bat Trang village, famous for its hundred-year tradition of making marvelous ceramic products. You will get the chance to visit and shop at the Bat Trang Old Market. Before going back to the hotel, you will head to a communal house to relax or try to make your own ceramic product, which you may take home as a token.
