Inside Vietnam: Cambodia Laos

Insider Experience: Dine with a local

Wherever you're travelling in Vietnam, we can arrange a wonderful home-cooked dinner at the home of a local Vietnamese person.

What better way to get to know the people and culture of Vietnam than through its fabulous food? We have a network of English-speaking hosts all across Vietnam, any of whom would be very happy to let you into their home and cook dinner for you.

This is a great way to get to learn more about the way of life of the average Vietnamese, and pick up some hints and tips for creating delicious dishes when you get home. Depending on your location, your host may take you to the local market to help gather the necessary ingredients for the meal - or get you involved in the preparation of the meal.
