Cooking-Class-and-Hoi-An-Ancient-Town-Hoi-An-shore-excursionsYour Hoi An & Da Nang shore excursion begins with a 45-minute drive on a comfortable air-conditioned private van to Hoi An town. Follow your knowledgeable guide to Vy’s Market Restaurant to start your cooking lesson. Firstly, visit Hoi An’s vibrant market by boat. Your professional teaching staff will explain the fundamentals of Vietnamese cuisine, such as the use of different noodles and spices in recipes, and help you select fresh fish, spices, and herbs. Savor exotic tropical fruits before heading to your boat and back to the restaurant where you will be guided through over ten cooking stations.

Hoi-An-cooking-classTry your hands at cutting noodles, making rice paper or using the bun noodle machine, and sample your humble creations afterward. You will also receive a copy of recipes and a set of Vietnamese cooking utensils to bring home. The cooking lesson runs about 2.5 hours.

Vietnamese-rice-papperAfter lunch in the class, we will continue into the heart of the city for a walking tour. You will pass by various historical landmarks that reflect Hoi An’s indigenous and foreign influences, such as the Japanese Covered Bridge, the Pottery Museum, Tan Ky old house, the Cantonese Congregation, silk street, Chinese temples, and pagodas. As the sun goes down in this quaint old town, you’ll be transported to Tien Sa Port in good time for your cruise departure. Trip ends.
