Itinerary Highlights
Day 1: Hanoi – Ky Son

Upon your arrival at Moon Garden Homestay in Ky Son Village, you will be welcomed with a cup of local fresh green tea. Afterwards, you can explore the Moon Garden Homestay and Ky Son Village at your own leisure. You can go to the local market, visit the kindergarten or simply wander around the village. Join us for the cooking class to learn more about Vietnamese cuisine around noon. Lunch is at a local house.

After lunch, have your fingers dipped in a fragrant lime bowl and enjoy the traditional herbal hand massage. You can then choose to use the time relaxing or interacting with members of the family to share the cultures and learn about the manners and customs of Vietnam, especially traditional marriage. If you want to learn some Vietnamese, one of the family members will be delighted to teach you.

In the afternoon, you go for a leisurely bike ride to Ky Son, Tam Son, Van Minh and Cham farming village communities, where you will get to experience the local life and learn about agricultural activities. You can stop at any house for a cup of tea while having a conversation with the locals about their daily life. If you want to better understand the life of a farmer, you can also participate in agricultural activities such as plowing or making rice beds, transplanting seedlings, harvesting rice (or cassava, corn, sweet potatoes…) depending on the harvest season. You will also get to collect tea and fragrant medicinal herbs that will be used for your steam bath later in the afternoon and the foot “spa” in the late evening.

We then return to the Moon Garden for happy hour. While waiting for your steam bath to be prepared, you can enjoy your drink and taste some of the local products such as maize, sweet potato, cassava, peanuts, etc, depending on season. The refreshing steam bath itself has fragrant herbs (lemon grass, pomelo leaves, holy basil leaves) that emit a soothing aroma.

Relaxed after the steam bath, you can indulge in the delicious dinner offered at the Homestay. In the evening, witness the local worship. The day is not complete without the relaxing footbath in warm water with ginger, salt and mugwort medicinal herbs. You can then retire for a deep, refreshing sleep.
