Tour to Hanoi

1. Cha Ca La Vong
The original cha ca restaurant, this place continues to attract both Vietnamese and foreign custom

Cha Ca La Vong serves just the one dish which gives it its name: fish served sizzling on a platter with dill sauce, fresh herbs, noodles and crushed peanuts.

The ambience is undeniably authentic -- in a crowded, noisy, rude, greasy way -- but opinion on the quality of the food remains mixed, with some declaring it delicious and unmissable and others being underwhelmed.

At 150,000 VND per person you might expect a guaranteed wow, but if you're keen to try out authentic Vietnamese dishes this place should -- probably -- still be on the list.

2. Le Tonkin Restaurant
Located in Ngo Van So street - quite but in the commercial centre, An elegant restaurant and lounge for discerning diners seeking truly authentic cuisine experience admidst a soothing and sophisticated setting reminiscent of old Hanoi with French touch unvisited. Enjoy vintage wines and subtiles flavours of the finest hanoian cuisines in a cool garden environment where bamboos sway and water strickles like a mountain  stream or step inside the dining room with absolute  french architecture style.The coctail lounge that is richly decorated with traditional Vietnamese gold lacquers, crystals and works of fine arts. The Tonkin, no fusion, but the magic and respectful encounter of East and West, a feast of senses and the soul.

The former are a part of the area’s Cham heritage. Upon arrival, check in at the hotel, free time at leisure. Overnight Phan Thiet.

Day 18 - 19          Mui Ne Beach Free Days
Days free to explore the area including the fishing village of Mui Ne which locates at the far end of the beach, the village and several hectares of massive rolling sand dunes make a pleasant diversion from relaxing on the beach, swimming and windsurfing.  The village is worth a visit for three reasons – firstly, very few tourists go further than the dunes, secondly, the small harbour is picturesque (there’s an excellent view from where the dunes road turns off) and thirdly, there’s an interesting pagoda where followers of Vietnam’s whale cult hold services and store skeletons of the massive sea mammals.
Overnight Phan Thiet
