Flavours of Vietnam (13 days)

There is no easier way to get under the skin of a country than through food, and this tour includes many encounters with locals who will teach you the secrets of Vietnamese cuisine and give a unique insight into their customs and culture. Start in Hanoi and taste the country's most popular dish, Pho; savour fusion cuisine in a fine-dining restaurant; and experience the city's best street food stalls with the guidance of a resident expert. Travel on to Halong Bay for a luxury overnight cruise around this UNESCO World Heritage Site, then fly to the ancient town of Hoi An where you will have a Pho cooking class and visit an organic farm. Continue your journey with a scenic drive along the coast to Hue, ancient capital of Vietnam, and learn to cook Imperial cuisine from the days of the Nguyen Dynasty. The tour ends in Ho Chi Minh City in the south, for a tour of Saigon by night on the back of a vintage Vespa, and a chance to explore Vietnam's "rice bowl" region around the Mekong Delta.
