Itinerary: Accommodation & Food,
Any tour will involve a wide variety of accommodation and will include a mixture of hotels and private houses as home-stay. As we tour through remote areas of a developing country, it’s expected that accommodation is not five-stars standard. Nevertheless, everywhere we stay is clean, comfortable and the best standard available. We are sure that you are here in Vietnam not for a luxury life, but for a different experience.

Food during the trip.
Vietnam’s food is famous worldwide as Pho, Spring-roll, Fried rice…
Breakfast: Each morning for breakfast we are treated to fruit, pancakes, eggs, bread etc. It’s all very delicious topped with a drizzle of fresh honey!
Lunch: At lunchtime, around 12.00 – 13.00, we stop for about an hour at a family home-stay or a local restaurant and indulge in some noodle soup, rice, spring rolls, meat and other fine food. The food is clean and freshly prepared. After lunch, we head off again and may even take in some dirt tracks and narrow pathways, often crossing shallow streams and rivers, it’s all brilliant fun.
Dinner: During the home-stay, we sample the delicious food, cooked by the owners, this usually consists of chicken and pork, rice, omelette, noodles, spring rolls and greens followed by fruit for dessert. During the evening, we may be treated to some traditional dance from the local women in the village.
When in Hanoi or other larger cities we are likely to eat out and other than on your rest day, your guide will take you either to a street restaurant or an indoor restaurant that serves excellent freshly cooked food and plenty of Beer and rice wine!
