VUNG TAU COUNTRYSIDE
A leisurely drive to Hoa Long commune, a glimpse into rural Vietnamese lifestyle with your first stop at Phuoc Le temple, an outstanding example of unique folk architecture and sculpture in Viet Nam. This is where Holy Father Hoang blessed the local village. Another attraction is Hoa Long market, not only for local residents but also for visitors from far away. The market is like a complex picture, really illustrating the daily life of residents in town. It's time for your exploration of how local people make rice wine and rice paper pancakes. Local liquor, traditional tonic or medicinal wine can be a concoction of awk rice, corn, herbs, cassava or fruit while rice paper pancakes are made from a special material in particular areas of Vietnam. It is very suitable as the wrapper skin for spring rolls is of a very high quality, one of the most well-known dishes in Viet Nam. Last but not least, you’ll get to pay a visit to a typical Vietnamese farmer's home to observe household customs, interact with the family and watch the preparation of traditional rice wine and rice cakes. Before returning to the ship, drop by the local supermarket for local products, souvenirs.
