Hanoi Old Quater

This area is called as  "36 streets" or "36 streets and guilds" because each street is recognized with its own commercial activity and  product.  Explore old quater to dive into lively sounds, vibrant colours and sensuous scents.


Temple of Literature

Temple of Literature is a historical complex, consisting of five main courtyards. The best feature of the site is perhaps its peaceful and gorgeous settings with nicely maintained lawns...


Tran Quoc Pagoda

Built on a southern peninsula of West Lake, Tran Quoc Pagoda is one of the oldest pagodas  in Hanoi. Since its construction in the sixth century, it was moved and carried different names.


Cooking class

Most of the cooking classes possibly occupy a half of day in your time budget (morning or afternoon). Starting with a visit to a nearby local market, you will then come back class...

I am a big fan of Vietnamese food and was recommended this tour by our friends. Glad, I gave it a go. Different to western taste, Hanoian cooking uses a lot of herbs and vegetables, most unknown to me, maybe that’s the secret of its exotic flavor. The fruit carving was fantastic, I learned many tricks to make food look more appetizing. The cooking class took only half of the day and the rest we toured around Hanoi Old Quarter, visiting two temples and blending in the colorful, crowded lanes of Hanoi. A good tour suitable for everyone who wish to dig a bit of Hanoi cuisine.

We had an exciting day full of activities; Visit Wonder gave us a fantastic way to get close to the culture through the cooking class. We wandered around the bustling market chatted with the locals with the help of our friendly, informative chief, tour guide who also explained many kinds of herb and their usage in cuisine. Finally we could do some dishes by ourselves, surely sometime we will try at home. The rest of our time was spent at Temple of Literature and Tran Quoc pagoda where have nice courtyards, lotus ponds, shaded paths. Both have ancient architecture even though we are not archeologists still found them interesting. The best way to end the tour is taking a glass of beer in Old Quarter watching people passing.
