You can enjoy exploring a local market, where you pick your own ingredients before learning how to prepare popular street food dishes, such as Bun Cha (grilled pork patties with noodles), Pho (beef noodles)

Pho - is the most popular dish in Hanoi as travelers love it for the savory broth and slow-cooked meat, both beef, and chicken. You will be amazed by its condiments, especially the small but potent red peppers and freshly made rice noodles. Let’s try it, it is actually a cheap bowl of soup with ultra-fresh ingredients and slow-cooked, melt-in-your-mouth slices of beef or chicken.

Bun Cha is - well-known local food in Hanoi. It is made of grilled pork and noodle, often thought to have originated from Hanoi, Vietnam. This dish is served with grilled fatty pork (cha) over a plate of white rice noodles (bun) and herbs with a side dish of dipping sauce/broth. If you’re wondering how to eat Bun Cha, it’s easy – you just dip the bun noodles into a bowl of sauce flavored with heaping mounds of fresh herbs (mostly a type of Vietnamese shiso), sliced papaya, red chili, and garlic.

Your trip today will start at around 8:00 am from the lobby of your hotel in Saigon with a drive to My Tho, the capital of Tien Giang Province 72 km from Ho Chi Minh City (Former Saigon). You will take time to visit Vinh Trang pagoda, the most beautiful pagoda in the province with a mixed structure of many styles.

Stops on the way can be made upon request for particular visits or photo making. Visit the traditional house at Quoi An village (all made from coconut). See the coconut collection set and how locals make handicrafts from trunk and shell, guests can see that they waste nothing, coconut is even useful from wedding to funeral.

Enjoy seasonal fruit and listen to traditional music. Take a horse cart on the village path and stop at Ben Truc orchard, taste honey with tea or Mekong whiskey (they have a funny rule for guests to get in). Take a rowing boat on water palm creek. Take a boat to visit the coconut candy mill (a special product of Ben Tre province). Enjoy fantastic lunch with Bánh Xèo And Cơm Tấm here before coming back to Saigon where you will arrive at 6 pm. Southern Banh Xeo has different variations to meet local tastes, that due to geographical differences in cooking styles and spices in Vietnam, Banh xeo can have many different regional interpretations.

Cơm tấm means ‘broken rice’. During the process of harvesting and transporting rice the grains are often damaged. In the past, these fractured grains were difficult to sell because most people preferred to eat the long, whole grain rice. With their broken rice, unsold farmers traditionally used it as animal feed. Nowadays, broken rice is often favored over long grain rice for its texture (something akin to couscous), and cơm tấm is one of the best-loved dishes in Vietnam.
