Take a break from the hectic pace of Hanoi and follow in the footsteps of the locals as they flock out of the city to partake in a much loved pastime with a trip to the bird market…

Your certified tour guide will meet you bright and early at your downtown Hanoi hotel for the journey to the famous bird market. Here you can take in the amusing site of residents of the big city bartering with each other over feathered creatures big and small. The market serves as a massive pet shop, where bird enthusiasts can pick up other bird related merchandise including food and treats for their special friends.

After a lot of pictures have been taken we head off once more to another bird related activity. We make the journey to Vac village, a place where local villagers lovingly create homes for these favoured pets. The quality of their craftsmanship is well known throughout Vietnam, and we will spend a little time with the locals learning the trade and seeing how they work the bamboo canes to create their masterpieces. You can also pick up some charming souvenirs in the village, including some traditional fans, before breaking for a traditional lunch.

Well rested and full of delicious Vietnamese food we begin our journey back to Hanoi, stopping on the way at the Van Phuc Silk Village. Here you will have the opportunity to see locals at work making some gorgeous decorative products and explore the traditional village. Of course, there will be ample time to do some shopping for souvenirs or items for your own home before returning to your hotel in the late afternoon
