What to Expect
You will leave Hanoi center and drive to the west of city. It is about 17 km = 35 minutes. I will see you in meeting point. Firstly, you will visit a local market since Le King Dynasty 1428. It is the most famous market in the region where there are many traditional items for sales. If on Market Day (two or three times per week), people from all the surrounding villages would come to trade. People bring dogs, cats, pigs, chickens, ducks, and bamboo baskets to sell. Everyone is excited to meet each other on that day. You will be surprised about bustling and colorful market which is working under the canopy of old tree. You will see the old woman chew betel and areca nut and blacksmiths work hard with his bright brazier.

If not on market days, you still visit the nice market with local product for selling as: Fish, vegetable, fruits, meet shops and chickens and chatting with local people at the market.

Right next to the market place, there are nice vegetable farms. We go around and visit vegetable fields growing a variety of produce including: bitter melon, cauliflower, cabbage, tomatoes, green peas, Chinese peas and corn, as well as fruit gardens with oranges, pomelos, papaya and more., and you may have chance to join a farmer working in his field on the way and ask experienced for local farmers about cultivation techniques and lifestyle.

After that, we go to my house to cook delicious and traditional dishes. I will teach you how to cook some special Vietnamese dishes with simple and traditional recipes. Enjoy local fresh vegetable, fruit, make traditional cake and talk about Vietnamese family's custom together. I offer free tea and local drink.
