I have been working as a tour guide for 8 years, I am developing the preservation of ancient cultures in Hanoi. With the mission of Hanoi, I will introduce to foreign visitors better understand the historical relics of Hanoi. Hanoi is where I was born, grew up, and gave me many memories of an ancient and modern capital. Hanoi is modernizing, ancient cultures will disappear, I will try to preserve it by the ruins of modern society. You will love my capital, where there are old streets, vibrant eateries, bars, pubs, street food at night. Hanoi has old trees, train whistles in the afternoon.

Join me on a journey through Hanoi’s beautiful street food scene. For many tourists Hanoi can be intimidating and hard to explore but I will show you the secret treasures of Hanoi that many tourists may miss or do not get to see.

We will start with an egg coffee at a secret and ancient cafe opposite Hoan Kiem Lake. From here I’ll take you to experience some of Hanoi’s most famous dishes including Bun Cha (BBQ pork with soup), Banh Xeo (rice rolls cake with vegetable) and Banh Cuon (rice spring rolls with soup). After that we will enjoy a meal at the #1 pho restaurant in Hanoi. To top it off, we will go to drink some Bia Hoi (beer) amongst the locals on the street.

Later at around 8:30 PM we can take a stroll toward Hanoi’s best venues for live music. Here you will enjoy outstanding funky jazz and other genres performed by Vietnam's most talented musicians.
