Eating at night

When the working day is finished and night falls, Hanoians and their city come to life like no other city in South East Asia. Let Hanoi Motorbike Tours show you the city in full bloom at night like a local.

Street Markets and Food Stalls are at their best at night. In true Hanoian fashion, the food of the north is at it’s best. The variety and volume of food will thrust you into a gastronomic adventure with no end in sight. On the back of your motorbike, in open air, your senses will be on overdrive as the sights and the amazing smells that will make this adventure an unforgettable experience.

Due to the diverse range of foods available in Hanoi, no two Hanoi Motorbike Tours are the same. Come with an empty belly and we will send you home with a smile on your dial.

For the more curious and adventurous food lover, ask your guide about some of the foods only the locals eat, you will be surprised and intrigued at what you can find to eat on the streets of Vietnam’s Capital City.
