“Excellent tour of the markets of Mexico City, our guide Evelyn was fun and knowledgeable. However I have done other Urban Adventure food tours and was a bit disappointed that this one didn't include more food tasting.”

ITINERARY

We will pick you up early in the morning from your hotel in Hoi An and whisk you off through the peace and quiet of the surrounding countryside. After about an hour of driving through rural Vietnam, we will reach the historic complex of My Son.

My Son is one of Vietnam’s most important heritage sites, providing a unique insight into the lives of the Cham people who lived here over a thousand years ago. Skip the line with us and explore this atmospheric architectural ensemble before the tourist hordes arrive. We will learn about the original building techniques applied during construction and the traditional materials that were used, such as timber, brick, and stone. We will also look out for the numerous craters that were left here by American bombs from the war in the 1960s and 70s.

After exploring the ruins, we will stop for an unforgettable experience to watch the Apsara dance beside the historic temples. The ladies will give a dance demonstration to the sounds of panpipes and drums, wearing colorful traditional costumes and cone-shaped hats.

On the way back to Hoi An, we will stop at a rice paper workshop to test your culinary skills and learn how to make a delicious local snack. We will then sit back and enjoy our creations with a cup of Vietnamese coffee and engage in a friendly chat with our hosts about the rural way of life here.

We will then head back into Hoi An to drop you off at your hotel or perhaps at a local restaurant for lunch, whichever you prefer. We are always happy to give you our latest restaurant recommendations. In fact, don’t forget to ask your local guide for hints and tips on how to get the most out of your stay in glorious Hoi An.
