Day 02 - Hanoi
After breakfast, enjoy an hour cyclo orientation tour to get familiarized with Hanoi city before being dropped at the Old Quarter to enjoy the bustling local life and meet a local gastronomy expert for a fun street food tour. Street food is for everyone – rich, poor, old, young, tourist and local alike and eating on the street is a very typical activity for Hanoians and makes up an important part of the city’s unique culture. Today, take the street food tour with an overview of local ingredients by visiting a local food market with a gastronomy expert, walk down some small alleys and bustling streets and savor some of Hanoi’s specialties. Finish the trip dining at a local restaurant which is set up like a local food market selling specialties from each region in Vietnam.
Mid afternoon, meet with an artist who has a number of solo exhibitions showcasing Installation and Performing Arts. He will teach you some basic techniques of mixing colors before enjoying a fun face or body painting session.
Then, visit the studio-home of a well-known Vietnamese painter, sculptor and performance artist. Enjoy a cocktail reception and enjoy the exhibition on the ground floor of the wooden stilt house. Back to your hotel for the night.
