5pm to 6pm: You will be welcomed to the host’s house and invited to their living room to enjoy a cup of hot green tea - a traditional custom of Vietnamese families used to show respect to their guests.
Then, you will head to the dining room and enjoy a meal prepared by the host. Here you will have a chance to try traditional dishes in a cozy atmosphere at home. See how the family enjoys their dinner, what their kitchen looks like, and witness some customs during the meal: the children will invite the elders before eating and after finishing meal, see how to use chopsticks in the traditional manner, and learn how to place your chopsticks to express that you have finished the meal. Through all of that, you will clearly see the difference between Western and Eastern dining etiquette.
The tour will end in around 8pm to 9pm.
