Experiences in Vinh Hy

WHY THIS TOUR?

The journey takes guests to a hot spot for mingling with the locals on numerous floating restaurants moored off the coast. Only accessible by boat and often family-run, exquisite selections of dishes are served with authentic hospitality at these various buoyant bistros.

 Away from mass tourism, with added Vietnamese charm, our secret restaurant of choice makes it worth the short drive for a rustic meal, with the sound of the waves crashing rhythmically on the shore. The secluded location amongst some of Vietnam’s most breath-taking scenery forms the décor for discerned guests, eagerly wanting to immerse into the true local cuisine – a blend of regionally famous dishes, grilled, cooked or BBQ’d to an authentic level of perfection.

TRAIL ITINERARY

4 Days Exquisite Experiences in Vinh Hy

DAY 1

Guests will be warmly welcomed upon their arrival at Cam Ranh’s Airport by the resorts’ representative before guided to Amanoi’s awaiting limousine. The approximately 70-minute ride in style and comfort brings customers to the exclusive Vinh Hy Bay – the home of one of Vietnam’s leading resorts.

Created with a fusion of contemporary elegance and traditional Vietnamese architecture,

Amanoi’s luxury residences are perched along a coastal ridge on Vinh Hy Bay with views of either the ocean, or a valley overlooking the national park. The resort’s off-the-beaten-track location truly defines its meaning as a ‘place of peace’. The nearby Nui Chua National Park protects an area of over 29,000 hectares of pristine coastal and marine habitats. This is truly a place to get away from modern life and kick back in an untouched setting. Leisure options include a swimming pool, spa, beach club, sailing and snorkelling.

Private check-in procedures from the Amanoi team is followed by an afternoon completely at leisure with the option to choose one of the impeccable services provided by this sanctuary. Under the guidance from the professional and hospitable team of the Amanoi, guests have the option of choosing from a plethora of activities during your time off– ranging from spa and wellness treatments, walking and hiking options around the resort or perhaps venture into the wonderful world that is called Vietnamese cuisine with a privatized cooking course. All activities mentioned are chargeable on spot.

DAY 2

Waking up with the first sun rays welcoming another day, your day starts with a nourishing breakfast, carefully crafted and served by the culinary team of Amanoi. A well-balanced selection of local specialities among the western favourites forms the base of a day out and about.

As an integral part of the Amanoi’s set-up, the resort offers exquisite excursion options to fill your day (not included). Guests who are eager to explore the vastness of Amanoi, located in a stunning natural part of Vietnam can enquire on spot about the options available.

We would not recommend enjoying an extensive lunch on this day, as the afternoon, we head out to sample the local cuisine at Phan Rang, one of the towns nearest Vinh Hy and known for its exquisite local cuisine.

Guided by a local expert from the resort, and an ambassador of his / her country, you will leave the Amanoi as we soon make our way towards Phan Rang, a good 45-minute drive south of the Amanoi. Phan Rang is often named in the same sentence with nearby Thap Cham: it is actually a tale of two towns which are strategically located between two main highways, both showing the finest examples of the purer side of Vietnam. Still, local travellers and foreign explorers favour the region because of its proximity to some remote beaches and in particularly, the change in vegetation.

Traveling from north to south (or the other way around), the arid landscape outside this region makes way for some more semi-arid plants and greenery. But after all, Phan Rang and Thap Cham have marked their places on the tourism map with its ‘dual’ status of the Ninh Thuan province’s capital.

It is in the late afternoon that Phan Rang thrives and comes alive and with that comes the almost insatiable demand for good, fresh food. The road from Amanoi towards the culinary foundation of the region will already stimulate your craving for local dishes, with meticulously manicured rice paddy fields, and plots containing onions and garlic passing on the way. A society that claims its roots from its Chinese heritage, our food exploration includes not only the local central market where an aromatic vapour of fresh ingredients moves towards you. As important as local food is for the society, so are Phan Rang’s cultural landmarks such as the Chinese Pagoda.

Having gained an appetite, we head deep into the streets and alleys, where local master chefs turning their generations-old and cherished recipes to a dampening cornucopia of regional deliciousness. Together with your guide, it is sampling street-side prepared interpretation a-la-Phan Rang of Banh Xeo, Banh Can, Bun Thit Nuong, Banh Beo, Pho Bo, Mi Quang and much more. The ample variations throughout Vietnam of these landmark dishes always taste differently wherever you go, highlighting the immense importance of giving customers a taste of how local master chefs interpreted it in their own way. Expect an explosion of flavours this afternoon, each sample giving you an even better impression of Vietnam’s exquisite experiences.

Early evening, it is time to make our way back to Amanoi for the night

DAY 3

Still elated about the local experience from the day before at Phan Rang, the morning of your next day begins with yet another example of an deliciously and well-prepared breakfast at Amanoi’s Beach Club for a sea-facing exploration of local and international breakfast specialities. This merely warms up for a complete day at leisure.

A day at leisure as part of your culinary experience is almost a must; the food and beverage team behind the success formula at Amanoi, even with its remote location, have even the most discerned foodie customer show elation over the choices of local and international cuisine.

It secluded location makes Amanoi one of the more favourable spots for an intimate dining experience alongside its extensive menu.
