Day 1: Saigon, Vietnam

Your guide and driver will meet you at your hotel for the drive to Tan Dinh market where you will start this fascinating street food exploration. Tan Dinh market is a truly authentic Vietnamese Market, one of the city’s most well-known shopping locations for both locals and visitors. In front of Tan Dinh market is a multitude of street vendors offering some of Saigon’s best street food. You will enjoy your first tasting of the night – sup cua, Vietnamese crab soup. Your next stop will be the Hoang Ty restaurant to enjoy the special fresh spring rolls – Banh Trang phoi suong, the ‘moon cake’ of Tay Ninh; and bo la lot, minced beef wrapped in wild betel leaf. Banh Trang phoi suong is a variety of rice paper that is left overnight, rather than dried under the sun. It is typically eaten with Vietnam’s standard fresh herbs and vegetables and paired with boiled pork and sweet, pickled carrots. Finish your night with sweet tofu pudding, which is a very common and popular dessert made from soybeans. Tofu pudding has the smooth, creamy texture of a light flan, but the taste of soy milk. It can be served warm or cold with palm sugar syrup that has been flavored with pandan leaves and ginger and topped with jelly or shredded coconut. After the tour transfer back to your hotel.

Beyond expectations! Then again we weren't sure what to expect. Lovely stay at the lodge, met other like-minded travelers (many had their trips planned by Adventure Life) and the owner was a gracious hostess. It felt like you were one happy family, visiting with a favorite aunt.
