As a self-proclaimed foodie, Anthony Bourdain is my hero. I was lucky enough to assist him on the last “Parts Unknown” in Northern Vietnam in 2016 throughout Hanoi corners to Ha Long Bay. To meet him, not to mention assisting him and working with his crew on his show was literally a dream come true! That experience of a lifetime not only helped me understand the man himself and realize how much he was "obsessed" with Vietnamese Cuisine.

To say thanks and pay tribute to Anthony Bourdain, the trip “A Tribute to Anthony Bourdain - Taste of Vietnam” is everything I would like to offer for everyone who loves him, fall for (or is curious about) Vietnam, and, of course, would love our food. During this 14 day journey, you will eat what was appealed to Tony, at the restaurants he visited, meet the people he was impressed and worked with, especially his friend- Mr. Philip Lajunie. It was him who traveled with Tony to Vietnam, Cambodia, Myanmar,  introduced him to our country's culinary and even appeared in Tony's “No Reservations” show (in 2 episodes in Saigon and Hoi An) and "Parts Unknown” (the episode in Myanmar). I'm sure that meeting Philip in Vietnam will be one of the highlights on this memorable trip.” Said Ms. Diep Nguyen, Vietnam Travel Expert of Exotic Voyages.

Follow her and explore all the interesting things and amazing food in Vietnam Food Tour that Anthony used to love.
