The old quarter in Hanoi is over one thousand years old and today retains much of the old flavor that made the area special in earlier times, each street was the exclusive domain of one trade (guilds) so there are whole streets of blacksmiths, silver shops, paper shops, headstone makers and more. Originally there were just 36 streets in the old quarter but today there are more than 50 streets. Although many of the streets are short, and the area is rather compact,
It is very difficult to find some local food on your own in hidden alleys or sidewalks, certainly the best way to make it easy is joining with Awesome Travel, taking part in this special tour to learn about Vietnamese cuisine, culture, people and language.
After all, Food on Foot will give you an unique experience to try the foods of the local Hanoi people, We ensure the food is handled hygienically and provide a comfortable venue for the tastings. The benefit also goes back to the vendors or restaurants/ families as we buy directly from them.
At 14.30 (or 21.00) at the end of your trip, say goodbye to our tour guide, see you again!
