Welcome to Hanoi, Vietnam! Upon arrival, your guide will be waiting to transfer you to your hotel.

We sit down with the Hanoi locals and sample various meat, vegetable and bread specialties that are flame grilled over hot coals for extra flavor.  It’s then time for dessert as we venture down a small alley to join in the local tradition of feasting on fresh fruit served in a cup and smothered with crushed iced and condensed milk (To Tich)– this specialty is one not to be missed!
