Favors of Vietnam Tour: Excursions… State College

Description

From the South China Sea to the Mekong Delta, from the fabulous skyline of Ho Chi Minh City to the cultural traditions that radiate from Hanoi, Vietnam is overflowing with history and is home to some of the most treasured flavors of Southeast Asian cuisine. This 11-day expedition of flavor will show you iconic images and familiar dishes, from captivating pho to incredible imperial cities, the intense aroma of fresh grilled seafood to the charming 15th century architecture of a vibrant merchant city. The flavors of Vietnam are enticing and unforgettable.

Explore the streets of Ho Chi Minh City on your first day in Vietnam. The commercial capital of the country is filled with remnants of the French Colonial past and is always energetic. You could also enjoy a half-day tour of the Cu Chi Tunnels located in the countryside outside of the city. The following day you will experience the city like a local. Your guide will take you through the markets that the neighbors frequent in order to find the right ingredients for the days cooking. After a brief demonstration you will recreate traditional dishes in gracious comfort under your guide’s direction.

Spend the following day floating down the Mekong River in a traditional sampan before enjoying your delicious elephant ear fish lunch. Arrive in Hoi An and notice the quaint architecture and undoubted charm of the ancient fishing village. Visit the local market and then float down the river to come to a tremendous view of the ocean where you can sip a drink, indulge in your lunch, and watch the afternoon drift by. Leave Hoi An behind for the imperial grandeur of Hue. Tour along the Perfume River, visit the famous citadel, and in the evening delight in the cuisine that would make an emperor smile.

When you come to Hanoi you will watch the traditional Water Puppet Theater before dining on fantastic Cha Ca, pan-fried fish. The next day you will have one more cooking class to gather as much knowledge of the traditional bright Vietnamese cuisine as you can. In the evening you will dine at KOTO, a restaurant that helps underprivileged children in the area. When you come to Ha Long Bay you will have an overnight cruise along the celebrated waters. See the rising karsts and exceptional caves. Visit the local floating villages and kayak along the endless expanse of islands. Return to Hanoi and depart for home the following day.
