Hanoi Home-Hosted Dinner Description

Meet three generations of a Vietnamese family that welcomes Flavors of Hanoi’s travelers into their home for an exclusive Hanoi home-hosted dinner, be treated to their great hospitality, and find out what tight Vietnamese family members together. On this special occasion, you’ll learn about Hanoi’s local culture from those who know it best: its residents.

At 18h00, our experienced foodie guide will meet at your hotel and depart for our host family. If you’d like, you may bring a small token of appreciation with you, whether it’s a local item from here in Hanoi – you may ask your foodie guide for a recommendation – or a postcard or trinket from your hometown.

As we arrive, we’ll be welcome by the family members. Enjoy a traditional home-cooked dinner with our host, who will share with us about his family as well as Vietnamese traditions. Prepare your questions to ask them about their daily lives – what they cook, how they eat, and how they feel about their home city.

We’re afforded this special privilege by our small group size, as it gives us the chance to connect on a one-on-one level, and to even share a little with our hosts about who you are and what has brought you to Vietnam.

On the way back to the hotel, you’re welcome to discuss our dinner in greater detail with your foodie guide, you may ask him for recommendations on where to find the best Hanoi ice cream or other palate-pleasing spots.

NEIGHBORHOOD DESCRIPTION
___________________
Hoan Kiem Lake is a historical fresh water lake, which is one of the major scenic spots in the central Hanoi, Vietnam’s capital. And because of its central location, the lake serves as a focal point for the city’s public life. Streets around the lake are preserved for pedestrians at weekends, attracting locals of all ages. Beside the legendary Turtle Tower, there is a Jade Island on which the Temple of the Jade Mountain stands. The wooden red bridge connecting the temple and the shore is one of the attractions, with visitors taking photos and selfies.

NEIGHBORHOOD HISTORY
________________
According to many historians, Hoan Kiem Lake used to be a part of the Red River. After defeating the Ming Chinese in 1428, King Le Loi saw a Golden Turtle God when he was boating on the lake. The Turtle God asked for his magic sword, which the Dragon King had given Le Loi earlier to defeat the Chinese. Le Loi gave the sword back to the turtle and renamed the lake to Hoan Kiem Lake, meaning Lake of the Returned Sword, to commemorate the event. In every day life, locals call it “Ho Guom”, or Sword Lake.
