We will spend the day exploring the wonders of this ancient city. Hanoi has one foot in the past and one in the future and blends Asian culture with European influences both colonial and contemporary. You’ll see the sights, visit colorful markets, sip Vietnamese coffee in cafes, and look at the wondrous array of delicious foods available from street venders. Lunch is at KOTO, a restaurant that trains Hanoi street youth to a high standard for work in the restaurant industry (the name means “know one, teach one”). Great food and a great cause, Koto is a favorite with our guests. In the evening, we’ll visit another great restaurant to experience a different aspect of Vietnamese cuisine.
