Hoi An Walking and Cooking Class - Small Group Adventure

from £44 per person

Discover the history and flavours of Hoi An during this walking and cooking tour. With a trip to the local market and a banquet of your own creations, this is a tour that takes in the best of this charming town.

Stroll through the Old Town, admiring the many Chinese Assembly Halls, the ornate Japanese Covered Bridge and the many local buildings. Work up an appetite, before learning how to make a host of Vietnamese dishes during a cooking class.

This is a place oozing with charm, and having largely escaped the destruction of successive wars, its streets and architecture are a delight to explore. After meeting up, we head straight for the Old Town ready to hit its ancient streets.

Now a Unesco World Heritage site, the Old Town is packed with buildings of historical and cultural significance, and boasts a number of streets that are off-limits to cars. Stroll past the many Chinese Assembly Halls, from the Cantonese Chinese Congregation with its impressive main altar, to the Hainan Chinese Congregation, which serves as a memorial to 107 merchants from Hainan Island who were mistaken for pirates and killed during the reign of Emperor Tu Duc. Stop by the Japanese Covered Bridge, which was constructed in the 1590s by the town’s Japanese community to link them with the Chinese quarters across the stream.

At the end of the walking tour, head to a family run restaurant for a cooking class. The chef will run through the range of delicious dishes that you will recreate, then it’s time to hit the local market to stock up on all the fresh produce needed to create the feast. Learn how to choose the best supplies, and discover some of the less-familiar ingredients, then head back to the restaurant ready to cook.

Pick up recipes to wow your family and friends with and discover the tricks to making some of the legendary Vietnamese dishes at home. The tour ends as you sit down to feast on all the delicious dishes you’ve created.
