Where you'll be

During the time of the Nguyen Lords and the Nguyen Emperors, many pagoda and tombs were built to the south and southwest of Hue, their capital city. At the time, Tuong Van was but a small temple near Tu Hieu Pagoda, right behind our place.
After Vegetarian meal, we will take you with special Incense provided by us to have another experience Meditation at the Temple.

What a wonderful experience with lovely hosts. I really felt like I was invited into their lives and we shared stories while cooking and eating. The meditation was also a unique and special experience. Language barriers didn't matter (some people there spoke English or French) as the monk and community are very welcoming. I have no such background but I am sure someone who meditates often would get even more out of it. I also got some great insider advice about what to do in Hue. Can't wait to come back!

Thank you so much, Lisa & Huyen! They were some of the kindest people that we met during our time in Vietnam, such a pitty that we meet each other on the last day of our time in Hue. The vegan cooking class was amazing, we already tried some of their recipes at home. And the meditation was a life time experience. Hope to see you one day again. Kristin & Marcel

Ich habe mich bei den beiden sehr wohl gefühlt und möchte sie gerne noch einmal besuchen. Wir haben uns bestens unterhalten und ich habe viel über Vietnam erfahren. Er hat mich mit zum Markt genommen und dann durfte ich nach seiner Anweisung absolut köstliches Essen kochen. Der krönende Abschluss war dann die Meditation im Zentempel, wo wir sehr nett aufgenommen und auch noch beschenkt wurden

We had a great evening with Lisa and Yong! They were really lovely and gave a good explanation of the basics to cooking the Vietnamese dishes which were super tasty. The trip to the Buddhist temple afterwards was a real highlight and we came away from the experience wanting to learn more. Great value and lovely guys!

We came for a cooking class (which wasn’t just fun and extremely delicious, but also helped us to understand the Vietnamese approach to food) and left with so much more, than a full belly. Lisa and Yong are fantastic people who invited us into their home and really taught us a lot about their countries past and present life. If that wouldn’t have been enough already, they took us to their neighborhood temple for meditation afterwards, which was such a special and heartwarming experience. This is definitely an evening you shouldn’t miss, it will be one of those memories we definitely won’t forget from our Vietnam travels. Can’t recommend it enough.

My partner and me had a warm welcome to Lisas and Yong‘s Homestay. After the little trip to the local marked, Yong told us precisely what we have to cook. The vegan dishes were soooooo delicious!! We had a very interesting conversation with the owners. Afterwards: the meditation session with the zen master and others from the community, we were deeply touched! An absolutely unique experience.
