Eat Your Way Around Vietnam - Group Adventure


Vietnam - More Than Just Pho

This has to be foodie heaven – many glorious days sampling and learning about the delicious cuisine of Vietnam. Experience all the classics - pho soup, fresh rice paper rolls, green papaya salads, fresh seafood and those wonderful French influences of fresh baguettes, whole strawberry jam, the most extraordinary coffee you will ever taste and pastries to die for.

During what can only be described as a 'food pilgrimage', you can travel the length of Vietnam allowing you to not only explore the regional food differences but also the culture, history, countryside and beaches along the way. Like any enthusiastic cook, you’ll enjoy hands-on cooking lessons and experience the best of Vietnam’s bustling markets, local and restaurant kitchens, hawker stands and visits to local homes and villages. Luke Nguyen – eat your heart out!
