Info : Make your own Vietnamese steamed rice rolls
For years, Vietnamese steamed rice rolls have been the long-lasting perfect comfort meal for food lovers. In the North of Vietnam a very souhern district of Hanoi named Thanh Tri is the best place for the plain rice sheets used in this dish. After breakfast, transfer to Thanh Tri village where the owners of a local home will be waiting to welcome you. Then visit a local market where you will be introduced to vegetables and ingredients needed for the cooking activity later. Return to the house along village paths, and your local experts will help you to make some Vietnam specialities. There is also the chance to learn how to carve fruit in a traditional decorative way before your lunch in the peaceful garden. About mid-afternoon you will return to Hanoi.
The highlight of the trip for us was the Bassac cruise on the Mekong Delta, met some lovely people, ate wonderful food, had a fascinating insight into life on and around the river by the Bassac guide Anh Tou.
