What you'll do

From the colorful dragon boats that glide across the Perfume River to the sparkling skyscrapers that tower over Saigon, Vietnam is home to a breathtaking assortment of architectural and natural wonders. But what you see is only half the story—there’s a world of history, culture, and tradition that’s best experienced through taste, not to mention what’s arguably the best street food on the planet. On this nine-day journey, we’ll explore Vietnam through its unique cuisine, tasting our way across North, Central, and South Vietnam by way of steaming pork belly meatballs in Hanoi’s Old Quarter and white rose dumplings of Hoi An. Along the way, we’ll learn from local chefs, sample street eats, and savor freshly caught seafood. Between bites, we’ll meet with artists, authors, veterans, and friends to learn about the history of these different regions. Come with an eager palette, an empty stomach, and, possibly, a flexible return ticket—once you’ve had a taste of this place, it’s difficult to say goodbye. This trip is offered by Atlas Obscura. Once you've reserved your spot, our team will be in touch to help you prepare for the trip. Please note that flights to Hanoi and from Ho Chi Minh City are not included in the trip cost. This trip is limited to 12 travelers.
