What you'll do

If you prefer the Anthony Bourdain style of travel- experiencing local drinking culture, eating good food, drinking at some hidden watering holes outside of touristy Old Quarter, and talking about everything (history, sports, politics, culture, literature), then this is the tour for you: - Visit the most special, hidden Bia Hơi place in Hanoi, only opens 2 hours a day from 4.30pm. We will taste the best Bia Hơi in Hanoi, discover beer history of this city, find out how Bia Hơi replaces Rượu (Vietnamese traditional rice wine) to be the drink that represent Hanoi culture. (This place closes on Sunday so instead we'll go to another hidden Bia hơi garden inside an ancient village of Hanoi) - Secondly, we will go to a Bia Hơi place which was an anti aircraft base during Vietnam war and try their famous crispy pork belly and tasty beer. - After that we continue our journey to meet my most favourite street chef in town, taste his very special food (fish spring rolls for example) and some homemade plum or apricot rice wine. * This can be well adapted for VEGETARIAN.

Thanh

Hi, my name's Thanh. I've spent more than 15 years searching for the best Bia Hơi in Hanoi. Even though it's the drink that has represented Hanoi culture for over 50 years and you can see "Bia Hơi" sign at every conner but sadly there are only few places serve proper "Hanoi Bia Hơi" nowadays. So join me in a journey through some of the most special, enjoyable, hidden places to taste the real Hanoi Bia Hơi. While not drinking beer, I'm a street photographer*, video producer and a former national Kendo team member. I enjoy a drunken conversation about history, art, culture and sport, especially with someone from different culture and perspective. * I also host a Photo Walk named "Capture Moments of Hanoi": www.airbnb.com/experiences/302596
