Hanoi Arrival

Your journey to the heart of Vietnam begins the moment you land at Noi Bai International Airport in Hanoi. As you disembark, our friendly guide will be there to extend a warm welcome. Keep an eye out for our distinctive Asia Tour Advisor logo along with your name – a sign that you're in capable hands. We'll whisk you away to your hotel, ensuring your comfort, and providing an initial introduction to this vibrant city. The remainder of the day is yours to settle in, unwind, and explore at your leisure.

Hanoi, with its population of seven million, stands as Vietnam's capital. This ancient city, steeped in tradition and adorned with French colonial architecture, boasts tree-lined boulevards, serene lakes, and a lively Old Quarter. Hanoi exudes a refined charm that captivates visitors. As you wander through the city, you'll witness locals engaging in Tai Chi by the tranquil lakeshores, while barbers and food vendors ply their trade along the bustling sidewalks.

Please note that check-in time is from 14:00, with early check-in subject to room availability.

Sightseeing of Hanoi

Your day commences with a delightful breakfast at your hotel, setting the stage for a captivating exploration of Vietnam's capital city, Hanoi. With a history stretching back over 1,000 years, this city is a treasure trove of cultural and historical wonders.

Your tour will encompass visits to prominent sites such as the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum, the final resting place of the revered "Uncle Ho." The delicate One Pillar Pagoda, the ancient Tran Quoc Temple, and the imposing Quan Thanh Pagoda will also grace your itinerary.

After a delicious lunch, you can choose to explore the Temple of Literature, where you'll encounter ancient Vietnamese relics. Alternatively, delve into the intriguing history of Hoa Lo Prison or visit the Art, Women's, and History Museums. Your day culminates with an enthralling performance at the Water Puppet Theater, a unique and captivating cultural tradition from northern Vietnam.

Hanoi – Pu Luong

Morning: The day begins with a picturesque drive through a breathtaking mountain pass that offers a panoramic view of the entire valley. Your journey will lead you to your accommodation, where a delicious lunch awaits. Here, you'll have ample free time to explore the retreat's beauty, soaking in panoramic views and the serenity of this tranquil setting.

Afternoon: You'll be transferred to a location approximately 12 km from the retreat, where your trek commences. This adventure will lead you to a suspension bridge over the Cham River, with subsequent walks following the river's meandering path. As you traverse the landscape, the river, rice fields, and villages will unfold before your eyes. The journey takes you through villages of varied landscapes, revealing intricate water wheels that transport river water through bamboo aqueducts of all sizes.

Your journey will take you to Chieng Lau village, where you can pause and savor the tranquility of the streamside scenery. From there, you'll continue on to the main road, where transportation awaits to transfer you back to the Pu Luong Retreat in time for a delectable dinner.

Puluong Discovery

Morning: Rise early and embark on a descent into the captivating valley facing the retreat. Here, you'll traverse tumbling rice terraces, meandering along small paths enveloped in lush vegetation. The path gradually reveals a picturesque village nestled at the base of a majestic mountain, a scene worthy of your camera's continuous attention.

Afternoon: Continuing your journey to the valley's base, you'll navigate through roads and farmland, villages and wild fields, ponds and rivers, mountains and open lands. Along this picturesque route, savor the ever-changing scenery as you trek to a beautiful spot for a simple picnic lunch.

Following your nourishing meal, you'll have free time to enjoy the refreshing waters of the nearby river. Later, you'll return to the designated pick-up point for transfer back to the Pu Luong Retreat.

Puluong – Life and community of the Village

Morning: Today offers a unique opportunity to immerse yourself in village life and engage with the locals who call the hills above the retreat home. Gain insights into daily life as you stroll through working farmlands, traverse rice fields, and learn about the colorful textile weaving process. Afterward, indulge in a satisfying lunch at the Lodge.

Afternoon: Bid farewell to the Lodge and depart from Pu Luong, heading back to Hanoi. Upon your arrival in Hanoi, check in at the hotel, where you can relax and rejuvenate.

Hanoi – Halong bay

Your adventure continues as you depart from Hanoi. We'll pick you up at your hotel, embarking on a journey through the verdant landscapes of the Red River Delta. Your destination: the renowned UNESCO World Heritage site, Halong Bay. Here, you'll board a luxurious junk ship for an enchanting overnight cruise.

As you relax on board, you'll be captivated by the astounding limestone karsts that rise majestically from the sea. Thousands of lush, jungle-covered islands appear to float on the serene waves of the Gulf of Tonkin. These turquoise waters conceal hidden grottoes and ancient caves, creating a timeless and enchanting world.

A sumptuous seafood feast awaits you as you bask in the mesmerizing views with a drink in hand. Your voyage will take you to a traditional fishing village, where the locals have ingeniously created an entire town on their boat decks. Explore Tien Ong Cave, a natural marvel, before returning to the cruise for an evening of cocktails, canapés, and a breathtaking sunset. Conclude your day with a romantic, candlelit dinner.

Halong Bay – return to Hanoi Airport

The day begins with a serene Tai Chi class on deck, surrounded by the early morning mist. Alternatively, you can simply relish the beauty of the bay as the sun rises over its azure waters. Choose from an excursion to a secluded island with a pristine sandy beach, ideal for a refreshing swim, or participate in a cooking demonstration with the ship's chef to further your understanding of Vietnamese cuisine.

Indulge in a leisurely brunch while your junk gracefully sails through Halong Bay, passing by islets and caves as it makes its way back to the dock. Upon disembarkation, your driver will be ready to meet you, transferring you to Noi Bai Airport for your evening flight home.

(Alternatively, should your flight depart early the next day, we can return you to Hanoi, including an additional night's stay at a Hanoi hotel.)

With this, your extraordinary journey with Asia Tour Advisor comes to an end. We extend our heartfelt gratitude for entrusting us with your travel experience, and we eagerly await the opportunity to serve you on your next adventure.

Tour was great, nice mix of things to do and see, but our guide really went above and beyond to make our tour special. Hung met us at the hotel and assisted us with recommendations, help out when one of our tour party last their passports, gave us regular updates on the plans and had fantastic knowledge of the country, history and culture.

We recently returned from a trip to Vietnam . The holiday was organized through Asia Tour Advisor by Mr Hong who provided us with an action-packed itinerary to meet our needs and ensure we made the most of our trip. We were met at every stage of our holiday by helpful, reliable guides and drivers. The guides were flexible and were happy to adapt trips to suit our needs, for example, by extending hikes and enabling us to visit a primate and bear sanctuary at short notice.
In summary, the trip was well organized, Mr Hong was very helpful and flexible and the whole experience was very enjoyable. We would certainly recommend Asia Tour Advisor to others interested in travelling to Vietnam.
