“Never miss the impressive plethora of food if you are travelling to Vietnam”

 Food has always been known to reveal cultural values of a country, and the best way to experience a true vibe is to join our daily meal in local houses. This tour will open up a chance for you to learn new fantastic ways to cook a local meal.

The vision of the Traditional Meal Tour is to introduce the Vietnamese cuisine and family culture. Our cuisine is characterized by a brilliant diversified fusion of different ingredients and dynamic flavors, showing finest combinations of both tastes and colors. Moreover, you can also leave our fast-changing world behind and really enjoy decent homemade meals.

Traditional Meal Tour

"As for the traditional meal tour, we took our meal into our own hands, and helped to prepare a traditional meal with a Vietnamese family. Sitting around the table, and having everyone reach for different combinations to add to your rice paper was an experience I will never forget. Thank you so much to the Saigon Hotspot team for making this trip as memorable as it was!"


Saigon Hotpot - Home visit

The home hosted meal was a wonderful experience. All of the students are hard working and personable. Meeting a family and hearing about their lives is an experience which cannot be matched - cannot be matched at any price !
