This gastronomic tour through Vietnam starts with you landing into Saigon, where you’ll stay at the luxurious Park Hyatt Saigon
, a colonial-style hotel in the heart of town, for three nights. Here, you’ll venture on a guided tour, taking in the classic sights, before being taken on a foodie tour on the back of a vintage Vespa, pausing at typical coffee houses and sampling the incredible array of street food, from rice pancakes to banh mi.
Roll up your sleeves for your first hands-on culinary experience, beginning at Tan Dinh Market, where you will purchase the ingredients to prepare a tasty Vietnamese lunch under the expert guidance of a chef at the Chopsticks Restaurant.
Just outside of town lie the fascinating Cu Chi tunnels, a network of tiny passages that the Viet Cong used to travel and launch attacks from, which you’ll visit on a tour by US Army Jeep led by a veteran.
Once you’ve tested your dexterity skills assembling your own delicious spring rolls, you’ll have time to yourself and we recommend spending a few leisurely hours on a Mango Cruise, floating down the Mekong Delta, meeting those who make a living along the water and sampling everything from honey tea to sticky rice.
