Know More about this tour

As the beaches and nature predominantly work as a visitors magnet for Phu quoc, the island has gained regional name and fame for producing some of the finest ingredients and spices around. Food and the preparation of traditional Vietnamese dishes are on the forefront of every social gathering in the country, prepared with fresh ingredients and flavors that enrich every dish to new palatable heights. As during the recent years, tourism is becoming a golden key for the economic development of the island and with this, the demand for tasty outdoor treats that bring customers closer to its local cuisine. It is during this morning that we venture away from the tourism hot spots and find ourselves among factories, plantations and farms for a taste of the local specialties.

The tour commences at a central meeting point on Phu Quoc, called Le Giang Restaurant (transportation from and to your resort is not included) where you will be warmly welcomed by the team that runs this local establishment. Your guide for the morning assures that all guests are accounted before as we move along from the restaurant to one of the established markets on the island. It is a sheer pleasure seeing all kinds of fresh fish and other delicacies from the ocean being prepared for consumption. Many of Vietnamese dishes find their characteristics in blending spices and sauces to give it a true taste of Vietnam. We continue our morning for a visit to a pepper farm and one of the leading factories, famous around the country for its Nuoc Nam (fish sauce). These two stable ingredients in its cuisine have put Phu Quoc on the culinary map as its trade mark products. A tour as such would not be complete without getting a hands-on introduction on true Vietnamese cooking; we meet a family at their home where you will be guided in the preparation of two or three, fairly easy to make, dishes. Your efforts in the kitchen will be put to the test when you can finally try out what you have cooked during lunch at this familys home. This hospitable family is eager to add some of their own cooked dishes to the table, making it a culinary feast.

You will have some time to let lunch settle in before your guide for the day brings you back to the meeting point where you will make your own way back to your Phu Quoc resort.
