Tropical Epicurian Tours in Vietnam

Travel to Vietnam and savour its culture and cuisine from Hanoi to Ho Chi Minh City

Epicurian Tours, Food and Wine in Vietnam

Along with exploring new cultures, one of the great joys of travel in Vietnam is the discovery of new cuisines. Those unfamiliar with Vietnamese food are in for a treat, as the national cuisine is flavorful, colorful and extremely healthy.

Luxury Travel is one of the experts in cooking tours and their packages range from half-day gourmet tour samplings to 16-day tours which introduce you to the finest cuisine Vietnam has to offer. In this brochure, we introduce you a cooking class focusing on the cuisine of each of Vietnam’s three regions.

North: The Northern part of the country has long been influenced by its proximity to China. As the only part of the country that experiences four seasons, many dishes are only available on a seasonal basis. Overall, the food tends to be milder and lighter than that found in the rest of Vietnam.

Central: The pundits claim that central Vietnamese cuisine is the most culturally authentic food in the country. Heavily influenced by the imperial court cuisine of Hue, the food is generally spicy and well-seasoned.

South: Southern cuisine is the most varied of the three. Rich in vegetables, rice and seafood, it has incorporated French, Cambodian and Thai influences into a style that is distinctively its own. It is generally more heavily seasoned, tropical and spicier yet sweeter than northern food.

Vietnam is a Southeast Asian country on the South China Sea known for its beaches, rivers, Buddhist pagodas and bustling cities. Hanoi, the capital, pays homage to the nation’s iconic Communist-era leader, Ho Chi Minh, via a huge marble mausoleum. Ho Chi Minh City (formerly Saigon) has French colonial landmarks, plus Vietnamese War history museums and the Củ Chi tunnels, used by Viet Cong soldiers.
