Unique experience for those of you looking for an exciting adventure

Le Mat is only 5 km far from Hanoi Old Quarter. The village is well-known for serving delicious dishes made from the reptiles. Just half an hour's driving from the center of Hanoi, you will find yourself in Le Mat village where snake restaurants are abundant. This tour is definitely not for the squeamish, so adventurers come forth!

Additionally, 90 minutes massage invites you to relax, revitalize and re-energize. Inspired by Vietnam's ancient spa traditions, the spa treatments and packages I guide you to will lead you to a world of wellness and healing.


This tour takes you out to the infamous Le Mat "snake village", where you can experience the traditional village and sample their most famous specialty: snake meat! Snake Village gives you the chance to see or even hold some snakes and see them in the farm, before enjoying a feast of local snake delicacies!

The most popular snakes served in these restaurants are grass snakes and cobras (the cobra is ten times more expensive than grass snakes, of course), and they are all alive.

To the end of the trip, tour guide will take you for 90 minutes massage, then back to your hotel. The tour ends here.
