Now, one travel company is making it easy to explore the country Bourdain loved so much just as he did with a brand new 14-day tour that hits nine cities and retraces the globe-trotting chef's footsteps there.
Anthony Bourdain was, among many things, a culinary pioneer—traveling all around the world so he could spend time with locals and learn about their food and culture.
“There is no better place to entertain the leader of the free world, in my opinion, than one of these classic, funky, family-run noodle shops you find all over Hanoi,” Bourdain said during the episode. “Dinner and a beer cost about $6. I’m guessing the president doesn’t get a lot of state dinners like this.”

It's no secret Anthony Bourdain loved Vietnam. Now, Diep Nguyen, who assisted Bourdain on one of his trips to Vietnam for Parts Unknown, has created a two-week food tour of the country that follows Bourdain's path through the country.
Exotic Voyages, a high-end tour operator specializing in off-the-beaten track voyages from Southeast Asia to Sri Lanka and the Maldives.
"I have used many travel companies in the past during my voyages and have usually had problems, but this company knows how to treat first class travelers and offers up unique, high-end properties."
“It just seemed like another planet; a delicious one that sort of sucked me in and never let go,” he said. Curated by the Vietnam-based tour company, Exotic Voyages, the tour is led by Diep Nguyen, who worked on Anthony’s 2016 Parts Unknown episode in northern Vietnam.
The company is built on the notion that allows the client’s individuality to shine through.
