“I took two tours with the same guide on the same day. It was very informational and one-on-one in both cases.”

Mr. Michael's review for another Urban Adventures tour
“Myo was our guide and tried to give us an insight into Yangon life - it was great, the train winding through the suburbs and urban area, markets and residential area of Yangon - Myo explained so much that you could never have found out otherwise and he had such enthusiasm.”

Mr. VIRGINIE's review for another Urban Adventures tour
“We were expecting a walk with a guide, not with other travellers. But that was a mistake by our travel agent. The guide was thankfully not the type with an umbrella and a megaphone.”
ITINERARY

Our tour will explore the ancient village of Thuy Bieu on the banks of the Perfume River, some eight kilometers from the city center (about a 20-minute drive). Here, we will take a peek inside a famous pomelo garden house that was once a regular haunt for the royal family, before taking a relaxing stroll through its delightful fruit garden.

We will then hop on our bikes for a jaunt around the scenic village, stopping off to visit a local family making votive papers and/or a village community temple. If you are uncomfortable riding a bike, you can skip this part and instead soak your feet in an herbal tub in the family's soothing, shaded fruit garden.

In need of some delicious treats to refuel, we'll go back to the local family's home and make our own sesame candy— a sugary delight with a Vietnamese twist, as well as some Hue cakes. You can, of course, sample the sweets of your labour, alongside a cup of fresh green tea (sometimes with seasonal garden fruits) and a bit of ginger candy.

Hue cake (Banh Hue) is a term for cakes in general, but these share the common base ingredients of rice flour and shrimp. However, it is the difference in recipes coupled with the skills of the Hue people that gives each kind of cake a distinctive taste. Try your hand at creating some typical cakes like Banh Nam, Banh Loc, Banh Xeo! After all the dishes have been made, sit down to lunch and taste your handiwork.

Our tour comes to an end at noon, when we will head back to the city centre.
