Founded in March 2011, Hanoi Homevisit Tour is a non-profit project launched by SIFE HANU Club. Its objective is to offer foreign tourists a deeper insight into Vietnamese people as well as traditions and customs by giving them an opportunity to visit a typical Hanoi family and observe the family’s lifestyles. Moreover, the tour helps bring happiness and other spiritual benefits to the elderly from the host families.Work out when and for how long to visit Hanoi HomeVisit Tour and other Hanoi attractions using our handy Hanoi trip maker app.
Nowadays, most foreign visitors to Vietnam discover Vietnamese people, history and cultures by going for sightseeing tours of the country. However, if international tourists choose Hanoi Homevisit Tour as their companions in the journey exploring Vietnam, they will surely have a unique travelling experience. This is because the main concept of the project is to invite foreign tourists to enjoy a dinner in a typical Hanoi family in a cozy atmosphere instead of taking them to a luxurious restaurant. During the tour, hosts get an opportunity to share the quintessence of Vietnamese cultures and everything related to their families such as history, rules or members with guests. Therefore, guests can build themselves a clear picture of what a typical Vietnamese family would be like and their lifestyles. More interestingly, both family hosts and guests stand a chance of making a comparison of traditions and customs in Vietnam and the country where guests are living. Sometimes, they can have a heart-to-heart about every topic of interest during the meal, which obviously proves that Hanoi Homevisit Tour helps bridge the gap between family hosts and guests.
So far, there have been nearly 80 tours operated by Hanoi Homevisit Tour, and this figure is predicted to grow in the future. Hanoi Homevisit Tour was proudly one of three main projects which enabled SIFE HANU to win the third place in 2012 SIFE Vietnam National Competition. In the same year, Hanoi Homevisit Tour was a representative of SIFE HANU achieving the 1st place in 2012 Youth Entrepreneurship Cup.
