A burst of flavour

Wherever you go, the tastes of the local culinary are what will keep lingering in your memory and urging you to come back. Hardly anywhere can you find a place filled with mouth-watering delicacies with rich flavours as in Vietnam, be it at an extravagant restaurant downtown or a small savoury food-stall at the side of the street. You can slurp away your bowl of hot 'pho' in the freezing winter and enjoy the warm sensation running through your veins; savour Hue lotus seed sweet soup to be engulfed in the light sweetness intermixing with the faint fragrance of lotus; take a mouthful of the crispy 'banh xeo' (rice crepe) levelled up by the fresh herbs and vegetables; or just simply sit by the road and sip on a creamy egg coffee while gazing at the bustling local life.

If you want to give to the kids, by all means, do so! Donate to a local church, mosque, school, or charity. Give school supplies or soccer balls or toys, but give them to adults to distribute.

Green Tours Indochina has worked with local authorities in rural areas in the North of Vietnam to supply needs for children including: Backpack and other book bags, Calculators, Spiral bound composition and other notebooks, Filler paper, Colored pencils, crayons and markers, Ruler with English and metric measurements, Colored pens, Erasers...
