At Le Mat Snake Village, you'll have the distinct pleasure--or displeasure, depending on your point of view--of trying a range of dishes made of snake meat. The entire process takes place before you, so prepare to watch as the snake's head is chopped off and cooked into a desired specialty. You can pair your meal with some snake alcohol from bottles with cobras inside. Take the guesswork out of planning a Hanoi vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.
