"guy things"

by finnagain

I will be travelling in a few months for the first time to Vietnam with my family. My daughter (24) and I would like to do a cooking class. Can anyone recommend something for my husband and son(21) to do for 4 hours? He likes fishing and exploring (not museums). I thought of a motorbike tour with a guide but not sure what direction out of the city they could venture to.
I'd appreciate any advice.

For four hours, he could take a walk round Hoan Kiem lake then dive off into the back streets and markets of the Old Quarter just north of the lake.

** Cooking class: try out at Highway 4 restaurants cooking class.
** Motorbike tour: It's easier to get a guide and he will have a motorbike to be your driver all day long if you want. Just a small fee extra for gas.
Or you can use "xe om" ( motorbike taxi) - though this is a bit more complicated to negociate the price. the main part of the city is quite small, you can start from Hoan Kiem Lake, to the French Quarter and then head to West Lake, back to Long Bien bridge, Opera House. You will cover most of the highlight sites of Hanoi.

thanks for the reply. Is there a place where I can find a motorbike guide. Or are they usually around and then we hire one?

Oh, no problem, the guides will find you! Seriously, just ask at your hotel or at any one of the thousands of travel agencies in Hanoi. I suggest Adventure Indochina - you might contact the wonderful Diep at adventureindochina.com in Hanoi (on Skype talk/text).

Thien Cung caves in Ha Long Bay

by zuyao

Thien Cung caves is a spectacular cave with many mystical formations of giant stalagmites and stalactites. You should engage a tour guide to explain to you the many stories in the caves. The cave chamber is huge and beautiful, illuminated with different colors of lighting.

Stalactites and stalagmites resembling dragon, lion, elephants goddess and humans are found here. My favorite is a pond with formations resembling fairies bathing in the pool. Legend has it the fairies have defied orders from the heaven and descended to earth to bathe. As a result they were punished and turned into stone formations! To make matters worse, 'evidence' of a fleeing fairy was caught by a formation resembling the bare back of a fairy climbing up the cave. Unfortunately, a formation resembling that of a man staring at her was seen nearby!

There are three openings to the cave chamber. Two for the entrance and exit. Another one is known as the Gate of Heaven as it opens to the sky. At 4pm, the sunlight is said to align with the Gate of Heaven to illuminate the entire cave chamber, thus its name!

Ao Zai & Silk

by Applelyn about Van Phuc Silk Village

The villagers in this village have been weaving silk for generations and many locals goes to them for their Ao Zai and silk. It is relatively cheaper than in Hanoi given the same quality. You have to take a cab to this village as it is far from the City Centre(11km southwest). If you dont want to travel far, you can buy silk along Hang Gai, within the old quarters. Most shop keepers will ask for USD35 for a ready-made Ao Zai but you can bargain till USD15 to 20, depending on the quality of silk. Ao Zai is the traditional Vietnamese costume. Thus buying it here will definitely be a plus. To test if it is geniue silk, take a strand from the material and burn it. If it smells like burnt hair, it is silk. But first you have to burn someone's hair to know the smell :P USD 20 +/- USD5 will be a good guide.

US$10 to Hanoi City Porper

by KLowe1123

Off the airport, don't worry about not having any Vietnamese Dongs (VND's) on you, just make sure you have $10 in loose change and get on waiting cabs outside the arrival area. there are three licensed companies running this, DO NOT get on with drivers who approach you at the arrival hall. Be specific with the hotel you're going to so as to avoid them taking you around for a ride. We tipped our driver US$1.

Best one stop shop for sampling street food

by beijingkitchen about Quan An Ngon

If you don't have to time to find each street food snack where it's made best on the streets (check out http://www.savourasia.com to find out where to enjoy the best street food!), then have a meal (or two) at Quan An Ngon. Located just south of Hai Ba Trung on Pham Boi Chau Street, the goal of this restaurant was to gather all of the best street foods from different regions of Vietnam and put them under one roof--or in this case, tent. The setting is a giant courtyard surrounded by foodstalls on all sides. The place is packed with Vietnamese and is very loud and boisterous and it is a great place to bring a first time visitor to ease into the local cuisine. The menu is clearly organized and has English translations (ones that make sense) for each dish. You could also walk around the stalls and point to what looks good. Personally, I'd rather eat at the street stalls where all they make is their one specialty dish/item, but this isn't a bad second choice, especially if you are short on time.
