Dining

Inspired Cuisine Inspired Cuisine — Every Day of Your Trip

Whether you're dining on gourmet fare in your hotel's restaurant; enjoying the flavors and cultural exchange of a home-hosted meal of local items; or indulging in a buffet overflowing with fresh produce, cheeses, and international favorites, mealtime is an experience to be savored. All meals give you a varied, authentic experience that reflects the essence of your destination.

Dining in Southeast Asia

Breakfasts are all served buffet style with international menu options. Included lunches and dinners feature a few Western-style meals, but mostly local cuisine. During your river cruise, dining varies between set menu gourmet meals and buffet offerings.

Special Meals

Special meals are also featured during your journey, including a Welcome Dinner and a Farewell Dinner, and a vegetarian lunch at a local monastery. Your Adventure Leader can recommend specialty dishes that you may want to try when dining on your own at the hotel or a local restaurant.

Home-Hosted Visits Give You a Taste of Local Life

Wherever you travel, one of the best ways to connect with local people is to share a meal, snack, or coffee — with a side of conversation. Whether you're having tea in a family home, sharing a farmhouse lunch, or attending a community-hosted meal, there's nothing more personal — and fun! — than bonding over food, getting to know each other, and exchanging ideas about life in your respective countries. In fact, most of our travelers report that their home-hosted experience was a highlight of their journey. While you are in Ho Chi Min City (Saigon), you will share a home-hosted lunch with a local Vietnamese family.

Healthy Choice plate Healthy Choices at Every Meal

Along with international fare, you'll also find many American favorites and choices for the health-conscious. We are happy to accommodate any special dietary requests you may have, such as low-salt, low-fat, gluten-free, vegetarian, diabetic, and lactose-intolerant, provided your requests are received at the time of booking.
