Become Hanoian and explore Hanoi profoundly and authentically through the daily tours below of Chôm Chôm Travel:
1. COOKING WITH A HANOIAN GRANDMA
Cuisine plays a significant role in the region's culture, so if you travel to a new destination, you should not pass up the chance to taste and learn about the traditional specialities, especially home-cooked dishes.
This day tour lasts around four hours and can offer you an incredible opportunity to learn about the culture, interact with the locals, and taste authentic food. You and your family will have the chance to go to the local wet market. This is one of the best places to observe the lively local way of life. You will learn the tips to select the freshest produce of Hanoians and discover many locally grown exotic vegetables.
Learning to pick vegetables and slice and dice the ingredients like a Vietnamese can be exciting.
With the guidance of our Hanoian grandma, you and your family will learn to prepare delicious and authentic home-cooked meals. In almost every Vietnamese home, mum and grandma are the cooking experts; they get the recipes handed down through the generations.
This is a great activity to experience with your kids; it is both educational and entertaining. After this cooking lesson, you will taste the delectable meal you made and take home the secret recipe, which you can cook to treat your family and friends.
2. TRADITIONAL CRAFT & ANCIENT BEAUTY
Have you ever heard of Nón Lá (conical hats)? One of the traditional symbols of the Vietnamese people. In the past, Vietnamese worked mainly on the farm; they wore Nón Lá to protect themselves from the rain and sun.
This tour will lead your family to a village with more than three hundred years of making conical hats. The artisans here will present you with how they make traditional hats and introduce you to many different Nón Lá. You can have the opportunity to listen to many stories about their life and the history of the classic hat.
Next to the Nón Lá village is another traditional township making birdcages. These birdcages are famous throughout Vietnam and exported to many countries for their lovely decorative details and high quality. You and your family will have the opportunity to stroll around the village, coming across courtyards filled with birdcages, interact with the friendly local people and learn more about the detailed steps in making birdcages.
Besides the birdcages, this ancient village also creates paper fans. You and your family can join a first-hand paper craft-making class to learn how to make a daily-use paper fan. This will be a fun experience; after the course, you can make your paper fans at home whenever you like.
3. HANOI WALKING FOOD TOUR & SUNSET ON BANANA ISLAND
If you enjoy having a walk in the afternoon to see Hanoi's scenery and local life at the end of the day, combined with delicious Hanoi food, this is the perfect choice for you.
The tour will start in the late afternoon when the weather is pleasant for a walk. You will have the chance to stroll on the 100-year-old bridge while watching the sunset and enjoying the fresh air from the river.
Our Chôm Chôm guide will lead you to a hidden place off the beaten path where you can take in the lush surroundings of a massive banana plantation and how local farmers wrap up their workday.
This one-hour tour is ideal for enjoying a relaxing afternoon filled with poetic views and tasty foods.
