This is part street food extravaganza and part night tour of Hanoi. You get to experience the vibrant nightlife of Hanoi the way locals do, from the back of a vintage Vespa scooter (don’t worry, you won’t be expected to drive it yourself!)

Start the night at a stylish local Cafe with cocktails and a snack from the local night time vendors before zipping off around the buzzing streets.  Its not remotely as terrifying as it sounds. The city comes alive after sundown and people congregate on sidewalks, parks and all over the city at the end of each day. After weaving through the magical, busy back streets of the Old Quarter, you soon arrive at a fascinating local joint, right on the railway tracks (literally!) where you try some infused rice wine and an appetizer. It’s back riding through the narrow streets again, as you head toward our next foodie place, a lively local restaurant serving Bun Cha. This the quintessential, must taste Hanoi dish of rice noodles, grilled pork and meatballs, with a side of Nem (spring rolls). Simple but delicious.

We then head out of the Old Quarter and ride close by the lake toward our next venue, which is very famous in the neighbourhood! We try the local speciality of Pho Cuon, and learn the art of wrap ‘n’ roll, Vietnamese style. with these fresh & fragrant ingredients, and the Pho noodle!

Your evening out in Hanoi finishes with a ride to the Opera House, the halcyon days of the 1930s may be over, but this Jazz Club will wow you with a truly unique blend of styles – 30s jazz & traditional Vietnamese music!
