Traditional Vietnamese Cuisine with Maia - Day Trip

Friendly, curious, exuberant Maia, a Vietnamese native, welcomes travelers to her urban home in a residential neighborhood in Hanoi. In her house, she will introduce travelers to her style of Vietnamese home cooking. Maia is a social butterfly who loves to share her culture and cuisine with visitors. She runs a travel agency and can offer great recommendations for places to explore - and eat! - in Hanoi. Travelers can join Maia for a casual, fun meal of some of her favorite Vietnamese dishes, la lot leaves stuffed with seasoned pork, bun cha nem (grilled pork and fried spring rolls on fresh vermicelli), and banana flower salad. Travelers will finish their meals with Maia's egg coffee (a Hanoi specialty) and seasonal fruit. If you book a cooking lesson, Maia will teach travelers to prepare 2-3 authentic Vietnamese dishes from scratch in a hands-on cooking lesson that will last about 1 1/2 to 2 hours. Maia also offers an optional market tour add-on of the Xuan La market, a short taxi ride from her home.

Featured Destinations


Hanoi is a city with a history that dates back to the 7th century. In 1954 Hanoi was declared the capital of the Democratic Republic of North Vietnam, and in 1976, following the Vietnam War, it became the capital of the Socialist Republic of Vietnam. This political history has made Hanoi one of the country's most fascinating cities to explore. The most renowned of all the monuments is the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum. It is dedicated to Vietnam's most well-respected President, who in 1945, led his country to independence. Other highlights include the Museum of History, containing ancient artifacts from Cambodia, Thailand, Japan and China, the 11th century One Pillar Pagoda and legendary Sword Lake.
