Immerse yourself in Vietnam’s mesmerizing culture and momentous history on a journey from the emerald mountains of the north to the sun-drenched beaches of the south. Discover a plethora of UNESCO World Heritage sites, including the imperial city of Hue and mystical Ha Long Bay. Glimpse rural life on a hike through idyllic Mai Chau Valley; enjoy a cyclo ride through the heart of bustling Hanoi; and descend into the famed Cu Chi tunnels, where Viet Cong guerillas lived during the Vietnam War.
But one of the most unique experiences, that I’m so excited about, will be being tutored in noodle cooking by former street youth. Oodles of Noodles, in Hoi An, is an initiative that empowers under-privileged kids through skills and employment training. Our young guides are being trained in the culinary arts, and will take us shopping in a noodle market in Hoi An, educate us on the varieties of noodles, then teach us how to cook our lunch.
