About this Tour

Our Historical and Natural journey through Vietnam starts in the heart of the country in the French quarter of the cosmopolitan and busy city of Hanoi. Once here you have time to explore the city’s streets via a cyclo ride before spending time with a local family and enjoying a traditional home-cooked meal. From Hanoi, you travel out to Ha Long Bay, where you will board a one-night two-day cruise that takes you around the remarkable National Park of breath-taking Ha Long Bay. After time onboard to reflect and relax you return back to Hanoi and board an overnight sleeper to Sapa.

On your train journey you leave behind the hot flat valleys of the Red River for the cool and misty highlands of Sapa. Once there you can mingle with the Minority people as you get to explore Sapa’s fascinating markets and trek to some nearby villages for further encounters with these remarkable people and their interesting traditions.

After spending time in this invigorating and colourful region your last few days in Vietnam will be spent on Vietnam’s picturesque central coast and the historical UNESCO city of Hoi An. Once there you will experience a completely different side of the country with a huge contrast in scenery, food and the way of living in the area. Your holiday to Vietnam then comes to a climax on the relaxing white sandy beaches and turquoise waters of the warm South China sea, which is the perfect place to unwind before returning home.
