Your adventure officially begins when you take a short ride to a restaurant in the village of Ngu Xa to taste Pho Cuon (steamed rice paper rolled with friend beef and salad, served with a dipping sauce, young papaya, and spices). You’ll also have the opportunity to try additional foods such as Pho Chien Phong (stir fried steamed rice paper with beef, bok choy, and pho tron — mixed noodle).

You can even get up on stage if you’re feeling particularly fearless thanks to your ‘liquid courage’. If you’re not feeling that brave, you can cheer on local entertainers performing in both Vietnamese and English.
Time to head back for a good night’s sleep at your hotel. Say good night to your guide and thank them for the amazing time you had before your Vespa drivers return you to your accommodations.
