HÀ NỘI — Travel firm Exotic Voyages has launched a new cuisine tour to various localities throughout Việt Nam called ‘A Tribute to Anthony Bourdain: Taste of Vietnam’.
The tour, which lasts 14 days and 13 nights at US$3,755 per person, will offer tourists travel and food experiences in HCM City, the Mekong Delta, Central Highlands and Đà Lạt City, the central coastal cities of Đà Nẵng, Hội An and Huế, the capital Hà Nội and Hạ Long Bay.
The company has co-operated with tourism expert Diệp Nguyễn, who worked with Bourdain in Parts Unknown shootings in 2016 in Việt Nam, to organise the tour.
Tourists will have a chance to enjoy special food in Việt Nam that chef Bourdain loved.
Tourists will not only travel to places where he visited but also have an opportunity to sit and eat at the very tables he used in 2016.
“The experience of a lifetime not only helped me understand the man himself but how his love for my beautiful Việt Nam developed over good food and conversation,” said Diệp Nguyễn. “To say thanks and pay tribute to Anthony Bourdain, the trip is everything I would like to offer for everyone who loves him, falls for, or is curious about, Việt Nam, and, of course, loves our food.”
