Join us Billy Vietnam Travel for an unforgettable culinary adventure in Hoi An Ancient Town, a charming rural community surrounded by picturesque paddy fields and the tranquil Thu Bon River. Our tour focuses on the vibrant Old Town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site known for its historic port and breathtaking beaches.
Immerse yourself in the rich culinary heritage of Hoi An as we explore the local food scene. Unlike other tours, we prioritize authentic Vietnamese dishes enjoyed by regular locals. From market food stalls to temporary street eateries, we’ll sample the best of Hoi An’s diverse and healthy cuisine.
“What a fantastic evening! LyLy was a fantastic guide; she’s knowledgable, polite, and makes sure her customers are comfortable and well-cared for. The tour was fantastic!”Nathan Lee
Hoi An currently holds the title of “top food destination” in Vietnam thanks to the creative skills of local people, which are a result of its lengthy and diverse history. In order to fully immerse you in what is likely the healthiest cuisine in the world, Billy tours has created a special 2.5-hour evening trip.
The foreign fast food chains that have begun to spread their blandness over our nation and the upscale eateries that have sprung up to appeal to Western tastes and Western finances are most definitely NOT the focus of our private walking tour! This is about food for regular Vietnamese people, food produced with pride at market food stalls, temporary street eateries, and occasionally even in what appears to be the owner’s living room, at regular pricing for locals.
Itinerary for the Hoian walking food tour
At 4:30 p.m, you and our tourguide meet at the meeting point at a appointed hotel in Hoi An, Almanity Wellness Hotel we make introductions, go through our meal plans with you, and discuss any dietary allergies or intolerances. Then, as night sets, we enjoy the stunning kaleidoscope of hues that illuminate the town streets as we start our culinary tour. Private culinary tours offered by Billy private tours focus equally on the delicious cuisine of our nation as they do on the history, culture, and landmarks of Vietnam.
Depending on what is available and what you like, we try about 5-7 local specialties. From steam savoury rice cakes to deep fried shrimp wontons, traditional Vietnamese coffee to central Vietnam’s famous spring rolls and BBQ pig skewers, and possibly finishing with a favorite street treat! But finally, at around 7:00 p.m., our evening will come to an end when we either safely deliver you back to your hotel or provide you with fantastic ideas for the rest of your evening in this atmospheric Vietnamese town.
