Vietnam is definitely the heaven of tropical fruits. The all-year-round heat nurtures and sweetens so many kinds of tropical fruits in Vietnam with extremely different in colors, shapes, and flavors. A journey to this land seems not to be complete without tasting these goodness, and to make the best out of this experience, so why not let us help you realize a blind tasting session to feel and taste them by using all of your senses?
Start in one of the most authentic and iconic local markets in Hanoi, the Hang Be market, where you will witness an explosion of sounds, colorful movements, and a smell of life. Give your trust to your escorts, they will lead you to experience a new way of sensing the environment around you.
Let your sight rest and see things in a different way, just using your senses. First, a street vendor will challenge you to find a tropical fruit out of some others similarly shaped just by touching it. Then you will visit a fruit stall where you’ll receive a tray full of some of the tastiest tropical delight fruits. Texture and subtle flavors will come to out while you touch, smell and taste the fruits, and you might be surprised that since sight is the sense you’ve mostly used for all your life, you have forgotten how beautiful things are when you discover it with all of your other senses.
Continue to discover the market and enjoy more fun with the local vendors. People tell us, after this trip where they see tropical fruits anywhere, that all the scent and flavor of those fruits came back vividly as well as the memories of that warm day in Hang Be market.
