2.Rural Hanoi home cooking class
This is one of the unique and cool things to do for families travelling in Hanoi. There’s a ton of cooking classes but a true hands-on experience and off the tourist trail if difficult to find. My advice is to true the one who are a real local who speaks limited English and supported by an English speaking local guide. You will learn step by step from local market visit to prepare the food step by step not just demonstration. Don’t forget to check what’s menu for you or check if they can customize the menu bases on your request. A private cooking class is better than a group on for those who is willing to pay a little bit extra for private class. Please note that a Hanoi rural cooking class is slightly a bit more pricy then old quarter cooking class with lots of other tourist because of transportation by private transfer is 30USD per trip. I like the ideal from Farm to table tour where you can also work alongside with local farmer and take part in their daily life activates, cook and eat with local family.
