Arrival in Hoi An
Hoi An is heaving with atmosphere. You’ll spend three nights in a welcoming, cosy hotel in the centre of the old town, complete with an inviting pool. After checking in, you can explore the tangle of tiny roads, made-to-measure tailors and tumble-down Chinese shopfronts.
Craft Workshops & Free Time
Today you will help support a local not-for-profit organisation in Hoi An as well as learning some new skills. The Lifestart Foundation helps disadvantaged Vietnamese people and their families become self-sufficient through vocational training and offers support to create a better life for themselves. You will take part in a traditional painting class, making your own card to take home with you.
Next you will learn how to make a traditional miniature Vietnamese lantern, under the guidance of a Lifestart Foundation teacher. Afterwards you will have the opportunity to find out more about the charity’s work, meet those making the crafts and recharge with a tasty Vietnamese tea. The rest of your time here is your own and this colourful city has plenty up its sleeve. Wander over to the Japanese Covered Bridge, people watch at a cafe or get fitted up for a bespoke outfit by one of the friendly tailors.
Optional Cooking Class
Hoi An Cooking Class
If you fancy learning to cook some classic Vietnamese dishes we can organise a group class during your time in Hoi An. You’ll hear all about typical Vietnamese dishes and then have a go at preparing your own lunch. From seafood noodle soups swimming with fresh herbs to grilled fish with tangy mango salsa, it will send your taste buds on an adventure.
