Relaxing fishing experience with lunch

When I first saw the description of the tour, I knew it was going to be different than the usual tours you find on trip advisor. It turned out to be just as I thought. Hang picked me up at the hotel and we proceeded to a quiet set of ponds to spend a half day fishing. From baiting a Bamboo pole with chicken heart bait, to enjoying an excellent lunch consisting of fried chicken, and snakehead fish, local spices, and vegetables. All of this under a thatch roofed hut, adjacent to the water, with a few beers and local rice wine to bring it all together. I enjoyed our chat, which offered some thoughts on the local way of life, history, and culture. To top it off, we caught a good size fish. If you want to get away from the tour crowds, meet a friendly local, and relax with a bamboo pole in your hand, this is the uniquely perfect half day in Hanoi.

Farm tour & Cooking in Hanoi with local family

I had the most beautiful afternoon together with Manh and I will remember our meeting for the rest of my life. She taught me a lot about farming life and the important ingredients in vietnamese food and how to cook it! Had a lovely dinner together (it was so good I didnt want to stop eat even though I was so full!) with her family and we talked all about food and daily life and the differences in our countries. It was really memorable and I want everyone to have this kind of authentic experience!!
