Hanoi – Hanoi motorbike tour and Hoi An cooking class have been selected by readers of US travel site Tripadvisor as
two of the 25 best travel experiences in Asia.
The half-day guided motorbike tour in Hanoi
allows tourists to explore Vietnam’s capital city’s famous landmarks like Long
Bien Bridge, Hai Ba Trung Temple, the Presidential Palace Historical Site and
try some of the city’s best street foods.
As part of the tour, visitors will have an
opportunity to explore “Train Street”, formed by railway tracks
running alongside Dien Bien Phu and Phung Hung streets in the heart of Hanoi’s
Old Quarter, with residential buildings just a few feet away on either side.
Meanwhile, the five-hour cooking class, organised
by Hoi An Eco Tours Discovery, is considered a fun and interesting way to experience the rural
life in Hoi An, a popular tourist destination in Vietnam’s central Quang Nam
province, and Vietnamese cuisine.
Participants will visit Cam
Thanh fishing village, about five kilometers from Hoi An, where they will be
taught how to use basket boats, a dispensable part of local fishermen, and
experience a bamboo basket boat tour in Bay Mau nipa palm forest. After such eco-tour activities, they will be welcomed in the restaurant and participate in cooking around 2 hours with the chef.
On top of the list is Thai and Akha Cooking
Class in Thailand’s Chiang Mai, followed by the Khmer cooking class at a
Local’s Home in Cambodia’s Krong Siem Reap and sunrise tour of Angkor Wat.
This year, an Amsterdam open boat canal
cruise was the world’s best travel experience.
