What you'll do

Orlando's Little Vietnam is the largest predominantly-asian community in the state of Florida. On this 3-hour walking tour, we will take a look at the history, culture, art, and food of this area.

Sitting along Highway 50, one of the busiest roads in Orlando, lies Little Vietnam. Most people just zoom past it -- but this tour is designed for people who like to step off of the beaten path. This local community has been around for over 40 years, and during that time has seen a lot of changes -- yet remains the largest Asian community in Florida. This eclectic neighborhood is also part of the Orlando Main Streets Program, known as the Mills50 District, which is just one of 10 Orlando Main Streets. Your guide is a local who knows the ins and outs of each street of this neighborhood and will introduce you to the flavors, stories, and images that lie around every corner. You will explore asian markets, visit local shops, see public art murals, and don't forget...EAT EAT EAT a LOT of food along the way! Come hungry - because this tour is food heavy!

-local guide
-3-hour tour

My name is Mandy and I am a third generation resident of this area. In 2017 I started giving tours as a fundraiser to support my local Main Street District. Locals and out of town guests alike have found these tours to be both fun and informative. When I travel outside of Florida, I enjoy taking tours with a local of the area to learn all the history and stories of the town instead of doing the traditional "touristy" things - so I decided to bring that idea home, to the Orlando area.

My co-hosts are Alex & Betty. Alex was born in Orlando and has a degree in history from Appalachian State University. A collector of stories and flavors, Alex is a natural tour guide! Betty is a native Floridian, living in downtown Orlando since 2014. She is a passionate tour guide and advocate for exploring Orlando's hidden treasures. ¡Betty habla español!

Where you'll be

After the Vietnam war, many Vietnamese traveled to America looking for a fresh start. The neighborhood at the intersection of Mills Avenue and Hwy 50 in Orlando became a place where they settled in and started their own community, a "Little Vietnam". This is the largest asian community in Florida, and is rich with food, culture, art and more. This 2 mile tour will introduce you to the flavors, sights, and stories of this unique Orlando community.

If I could do this tour like twice a day everyday of the week I would. The food that Mandy introduced to use was amazing and you won't leave on an empty stomach but make sure to come on one tho. You will be filled to the brim by the end.

Seems rare one embraces the opportunity to experience tasting and dabbling in some shopping of the Vietnamese culture. If you want to step out of the ordinary touristy things of all things Disney, etc., check out this short walking tour...where you won't leave hungry...

This tour was truly remarkable. Mandy knew the area in and out and gave it that special touch. Her menu selections were out of this world. I would definitely recommend this tour, especially if you want something different from the parks and that is outside the box.

Real hidden gems are rare. This is that hidden gem. Your tastebuds will thank you. The story of the area’s development will move you. Plan this tour early in your stay in Orlando and I bet I know where you’ll go for dinner once or twice later on.

This experience is a must if you enjoy learning about the culture and background of a neighborhood thru story-telling, sight, smell and taste! The food was interesting and delicious! We wish we had participated in the tour earlier in our week long stay.
