A leisurely drive along the banks of the river and through the alleyways and streets takes us to a lively local restaurant where we cook a hot pot at the table and learn the art of wrap ‘n’ roll – Vietnamese style! A short ride through the busy streets and alleys takes us to our last port of call, and a recent addition to Hoi An’s vibrant dining scene, a modern Vietnamese restaurant in a new neighbourhood, where we tuck into some awesome BBQ specialties, grilled DIY style at our table!
