Vietnam is an endearing, fascinating country. Beyond the traditional image of rice paddies and conical hats, you will find a country brimming with energy and looking to the future. You will feel it in the buzz of the streets, the encounters you will make, the diversity of cuisines and landscapes.
HERE ARE 5 EXPERIENCES TO LIVE DURING YOUR TRIP TO VIETNAM.
CROSS THE RICE FIELDS
Do not sulk our pleasure, the rice fields of Vietnam are magnificent. At dawn, explore these moving landscapes on foot or by bike, the colors of which change with the seasons. You will come across flocks of ducks in single file on the dikes, families of languid water buffalo along the paths and ponds laden with lotus.
LUNCH OR DINNER AT THE RESIDENCE
Vietnamese cuisine is a must for any self-respecting gourmet. Take advantage of your stay in Uncle Ho’s country to discover authentic family cuisine. Learn how to make noodles, learn to recognize and combine fresh herbs, share a moment of conviviality with your hosts. And finish with a nap in the hammock!
WATCH A SHOW
The contemporary shows of the Lune company offer a poetic vision of Vietnamese culture, old and new. Traditional music, costumes, performances, acrobatics and dances create a spectacular and captivating spectacle.
Shows in Hanoi, Hoi An and Ho Chi Minh City.
BLEND INTO THE LANDSCAPE
Enjoying a soup for breakfast or having a coffee on the sidewalk, give it a try, it can be the start of a great story.
Like the locals, start your day with a nice bowl of steaming ph. When the bowl arrives, personalize it with chilli slices, some herbs and a drop of lime.
Now you have to sip a coffee on the sidewalk. It doesn’t matter if you choose a random alley or a stool with a view of the cathedral, order càphê and enjoy the spectacle of the street.
ATTEND THE HARVEST
If you have the opportunity to be in Vietnam at harvest time, the sight of the rice fields is unforgettable. Mowing, drying, collecting and bundling. The plots are cut and cleared in just a few hours, leaving room for a new cycle.
