Itinerary of Hoi An food tour

This tour will give you an insight and education into many local and traditional foods you wouldn’t normally try and it will give you the ability to be confident in approaching street vendors whilst not just in Hoi An but in your travels all over Vietnam!

We will pick you up from your hotel normally between 7.30 and 8 o’clock. (we will confirm the night before) We head to a local surburban fresh food wet/dry market where we will give you an overview of every day Vietnamese life in Hoi An. This is where the walking tour starts so make sure you have your comfy shoes on!

From here we will start our casual stroll via the market place which is the hub of everyday life in Vietnam. We will taste our way through the local Hoi An suburbs using main roads and smaller alleyways. We continue in a direction towards the old quarter of town stopping at least at a minimum 8 different mum and dad vendors to try their traditional foods and condiments!

We have a master list of over 40 different foods that we can try and on this tour we will try a minimum of 15 depending on which vendors are out and about on any given day. Along the way we pass numerous back alleys and locals going about their daily business with fantastic photo opportunities along the way. We will pass food vendors, tailors making suits, hair dressers, sheet metal workers, soft drink distributors and even an orphanage.

The tours final destination finishes up in a comfortable cafe near by the old quarter so once the tour has finished, you can wander off at your leisure and you can walk off the extra kilos gained whilst on safari!! You won’t need lunch but you will be ready for dinner after a quick afternoon siesta!! Taxis are just a 2 minute walk away for those who need a lift back to your accommodation.
