Want to Try Vietnamese Noodles with Obama and Bourdain?
To be honest, we can't actually organize dinner with President Obama and food connoisseur Anthony Bourdain (RIP) but we have long been sending our travelers to Bun Cha, the very joint they chose for their $6 lunch rendezvous on May 23.    Our Vietnam itineraries allow you to dive into Hanoi’s diverse neighborhoods, sample new foods, and experience life like a local.

They’re wonderful friends of ours here at Wildland and while we love searching the dense jungle with Tehrun or talking birds with their son Jai another reason we cherish our visits to Kanha Jungle Lodge is for Dimple’s spectacular cooking. She’s an artist in the kitchen, tries to use as many fresh and seasonal ingredients as she can, and creates culinary delights you would never expect in the jungles of India.
