Highlights Of Hanoi

As the vibrant capital of Vietnam, Hanoi boasts an array of fascinating cultural and historic sites. Our day's tour will encompass these highlights:

Start your day with a visit to the grand and solemn Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum (please note that it's viewed from the outside and closed on Mondays and Fridays from October to November). Admire the iconic One Pillar Pagoda, often referred to as the 'icon of Hanoi.' Explore the exquisite Temple of Literature, gaze upon West Lake's Tran Quoc Temple and Quan Thanh Pagoda, and meander through the bustling streets of the Old Quarter. Conclude your day with a captivating water puppet performance. The evening is yours to enjoy at your leisure.

Ha Noi – Ha Long Bay

Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Ha Long Bay is a picturesque archipelago adorned with over 2,000 floating islands formed from karstic rock. According to legend, these islands were created by a family of dragons at the behest of an emperor, tasked with safeguarding Vietnam from Chinese invaders.

The dragons soared across the bay, spewing jewels and jade that miraculously transformed into the scattered islands we see today. Together, these islands formed a protective barrier that still amazes visitors.

We'll collect you from your hotel around 9:00 am and embark on a journey through the lush Red River Delta, en route to the renowned UNESCO World Heritage site, Ha Long Bay. Upon arrival, you'll board a luxurious junk ship for an overnight cruise. While you relax on board, marvel at the stunning limestone karsts that emerge from the sea, accompanied by thousands of jungle-covered islets seemingly floating on the waves.

As you savor a delectable seafood lunch, you can take in the breathtaking views while enjoying a refreshing drink. Our journey will lead us to a traditional fishing village where locals have built an entire community on their boats. Explore the Tien Ong Cave before returning to the cruise for cocktails, canapés, and a mesmerizing sunset. End your day with a romantic candlelit dinner.

Ha Long Bay – Ha Noi – Flight To Hoi An via Da Nang Airport

As the morning light bathes Ha Long Bay, the karst formations glisten, casting a magical spell over the landscape. In these early daylight hours, you can bask in the bay's beauty from the ship's deck while engaging in a Tai Chi session. Each graceful movement is designed to soothe both body and mind.

The cruise will continue to navigate the bay until you disembark later in the morning. Your driver will be there to meet you upon disembarkation, ready to transfer you to Noi Bai Airport for your flight to Da Nang. Upon arrival at Da Nang Airport, you will be greeted and smoothly transferred to your hotel in downtown Hoi An.

Hoi An Day Excursion

The enchanting ancient town of Hoi An, located 30 kilometers south of Da Nang, rests serenely along the banks of the Thu Bon River. This well-preserved town is a living testament to its rich history, with Japanese merchant houses, Chinese temples, and ancient tea warehouses standing tall, reminiscent of its bygone days as a bustling Asian seaport.

Here, you have the opportunity to craft your own exploration of Hoi An. Choose from the following itineraries:

Option 1: Cooking Class:

Begin your culinary journey with a visit to vibrant local markets, where you'll select the freshest ingredients for your adventure. Back at the cooking class, a skilled chef will demonstrate the preparation of typical Vietnamese cuisine. Following the demonstration, it's your turn to master the art of cooking, with the culmination being the enjoyment of your delectable creations.

In the afternoon, embark on a walking tour of Old Hoi An, a time-capsule town that once thrived as a major Asian seaport. Its rich history is lovingly preserved, evident in traditional Chinese shops, opulent French residences, and an ancient Japanese bridge. Silk markets, Vietnamese street food stalls, and talented street performers await your discovery, promising to captivate your senses.

Option 2: Tra Que Village Discovery:

Start your day with breakfast at the hotel, followed by an invigorating bike ride to Tra Que Village, where you'll immerse yourself in Vietnamese rural life. Learn about the village's history and witness the daily rituals of vegetable cultivation.

Gain insight into the traditional uses of these vegetables in Vietnamese medicine and participate in various farming activities, from collecting seaweed fertilizer to sowing, raking, watering, and harvesting. Continue your cultural immersion by joining a local family to prepare and savor a meal made from the very produce you helped grow. Taste other local specialties like Tam huu (spring rolls) and Banh xeo (pancakes), and embrace a customary post-lunch nap before returning to the fields to learn about harvesting and packaging the produce. In the afternoon, bid farewell to your newfound friends and return to Hoi An to explore the Old Quarter before relaxing at your hotel.

Option 3: Bike or Motorbike to the Countryside:

Your day begins with your guide picking you up at the hotel on a motorbike. Ride to Tra Que Village before heading to the river for a local ferry ride to Kim Bong Village, known for wood carving and traditional sleeping mat weaving. Witness the intricate process of mat weaving at a local family's home, gaining insights into its historical significance.

Next, visit a local family engaged in making Mi Quang, a famous local noodle dish. You'll have the opportunity to participate and savor the perfect banh dap (rice cracker). Embark on a thrilling 300-meter bamboo bridge river crossing to reach the sea-side landscape of Duy Hai market and harbor.

A local ferry will transport you to Cam Thanh village, enveloped by water coconut palm fringes. Enjoy a meal at Cam Thanh homestay before returning to your hotel by motorbike. If you prefer biking over a scooter tour, we can customize the route to match your abilities.

Hoi An- Travel to Da Nang – Flight to Ho Chi Minh – Ho Chi Minh Visit

Embrace the bustling streets and enticing aromas of Ho Chi Minh City, formerly known as Saigon, the once-southern capital of Vietnam. Upon your arrival, you'll be met at the airport by a private transfer ready to whisk you away to your centrally located hotel.

Ho Chi Minh City, a thriving center of commerce, encompasses modernity along with the soothing presence of the Saigon River. Through a blend of tradition, modernity, colonial history, and reunification, the city offers a mesmerizing glimpse into the wonders of Vietnam.

After enjoying a leisurely morning breakfast, our team will pick you up and take you to the airport for your flight to Saigon/Ho Chi Minh City. Upon your arrival, you will be greeted and transferred to downtown for sightseeing. Based on your preferences, we suggest a visit to Cu Chi Tunnels, a pivotal site from the Vietnam-American War. Explore the network of tunnels, discover hidden doors, and uncover once-lethal traps.

Alternatively, you can choose to visit the War Remnants Museum or the Presidential Palace, depending on your interests. As evening descends, stroll along the colonial streets to iconic landmarks such as the Old Saigon Post Office, Dong Khoi Street, Continental Hotel, Opera House, and City Hall.

Ho Chi Minh – Mekong – Ben Tre

Begin your day by departing Saigon, embarking on a journey to the Mekong Delta. Upon arrival at Hàm Luông Pier, you'll embark on a mesmerizing cruise along the Bến Tre River. The journey unfolds before your eyes, revealing the vibrant activities of river life, including fishing, water transport, and traditional brick-making, characterized by hand-printing and baking.

Visit one of the many coconut processing workshops that line the canal, and explore the charming world of traditional coconut-based products. Venture on a motor cart (xe lôi) or bike along shaded paths, passing through verdant rice fields and vegetable plots. Here, you'll encounter the daily life of the locals and gain insight into tropical culture.

Lunch awaits you at Hai Hồ House, followed by an afternoon filled with experiences such as riding a sampan along the canal. As the day progresses, you'll return to Ham Luông Pier by boat, concluding your explorations before being transferred back to your hotel for relaxation.

Ben Tre Exploration – Ho Chi Minh

Awaken early to embrace the tranquil morning countryside. After breakfast, embark on a boat journey along the river, one of the Mekong River's tributaries, offering a captivating perspective of fishing, water transportation, and other vibrant river activities.

You'll make stops at a brickwork site, where you can witness coconut charcoal and husking processes. Explore one of the numerous coconut processing workshops, where you can observe the creation of coconut candies and even try your hand at candy-making. Stroll along natural scissors creeks, where the waters narrow and the surroundings become increasingly intimate.

Take a leisurely walk to a family workshop specializing in creating sleep mats, a remarkable art that adds to the village's charm. Following these experiences, you'll enjoy a local restaurant lunch.

In the afternoon, embark on a bike ride through picturesque villages, row a boat along water palm creeks, and sail to Hung Vuong Pier. From there, your driver will transfer you back to Saigon.

Ho Chi Minh – Flight To Siem Reap

Your adventure now takes you to Siem Reap, a city destined for greatness. Upon your arrival in Siem Reap, Cambodia, you'll discover a city that has reimagined itself as the hub of chic Cambodia, offering everything from vibrant nightlife to world-class dining, spas, unique shopping, and tours that cater to both adventurers and food enthusiasts.

Your morning will be free for a leisurely breakfast before our team arrives to escort you to the airport for your flight to Siem Reap. Upon landing at the airport, you will be met and seamlessly transferred to your hotel. The rest of the day is yours to enjoy at your own pace.

Siem Reap – Outlying Temples Exploring

The Angkor temples are a source of inspiration and pride for all Khmers, serving as a pilgrimage site for Cambodians. These temples provide a glimpse into Cambodia's ancient grandeur and the enduring spirit of its people.

Angkor is an unparalleled ancient site, with the grandeur of the Great Wall of China, the intricacy of the Taj Mahal, and the symbolism of the pyramids all entwined into one remarkable destination.

After a hearty breakfast at your hotel, your guide will take you to the site of the ancient Khmer civilization at Hariharalaya. Flourishing in the late 9th and early 10th centuries, these temples are the earliest in the Angkor area and form the Rolous group, which includes Lo Lei, Preah Koh, and Bakhong Temples.

Lunch will be a delightful experience with a local family. Following your meal, we'll continue driving to the rural outskirts, approximately 35 kilometers from Angkor, to explore the exquisite Banteay Srei Temple, constructed in the 10th century and dedicated to Shiva. This temple's pink sandstone structure is adorned with exquisite sculptures, lintels, pediments, and friezes. Locals believe that the temple's intricate details are too fine to have been crafted by male hands, attributing its creation to women.

On your journey back to Siem Reap, you'll visit the Banteay Samre Temple, adorned with striking reliefs illustrating Vishnu and Krishna legends.

Siem Reap – Angkor Highlighted Temples

Start your day with an early breakfast at your hotel. At 7:30 am, you'll depart for the picturesque Ta Prohm Temple. This iconic temple had nearly disappeared into the jungle, offering an exotic and haunting sight. The majestic roots of trees that envelop the temple's stone blocks create a captivating and unforgettable scene.

Continue your exploration with a visit to Angkor Wat, home to some of the world's most impressive ruins. This temple, adorned with fine Apsara carvings, is a masterpiece of Angkorian-era art.

Your journey will then lead you to the enigmatic Royal City of Angkor Thom, where the 54-tower Bayon Temple stands as an awe-inspiring sight. At first glance, the temple may seem like a mass of stone, but upon closer inspection, faces from a distant era emerge, surrounding you with their enigmatic gazes. Explore the surrounding area, including the Baphou, Elephant Terraces, Lipper King Terrace, and Royal Palace. Your day will culminate at the Preah Khan Temple, constructed in the 12th century by King Jayavarman VII and resembling the Ta Prohm Temple.

Siem Reap City Tour & Food Tour

Begin your day with breakfast at your hotel. You'll embark on a Siem Reap city orientation tour that includes a visit to the local shrine, Preah Ang Chek/Cham, where you can offer prayers for good luck. Your journey will take you to a unique local attraction: a bungalow favored by local people for family photos and exercise.

Your next stop is the Angkor National Museum, which opened its doors in November 2007. It houses a comprehensive collection of Cambodian artifacts, offering insights into Khmer art, culture, and architecture. The museum's eight galleries provide an in-depth look at Cambodia's history and the Khmer Empire, alongside a captivating collection of Buddhist artifacts.

Your exploration continues at Artisans D' Angkor, a popular handicraft venue in Siem Reap. Here, you can witness artisans at work, creating traditional crafts such as wood and stone carving, lacquering, gilding, and silk painting. It's a testament to the preservation of these ancient techniques.

In the evening, immerse yourself in Siem Reap's vibrant nightlife with a tuk-tuk ride that provides insights into local customs and tourist activities. You'll traverse the food market on Road 60m, where you can be adventurous and taste some fried bugs. The first part of the road features a play station for kids. Afterward, enjoy dinner with a local beer or soft drink at a local beer garden. Take a stroll through the night market, and if you're feeling bold, experience a foot massage by fish (at your own expense). Please note that if you're not familiar with local beer gardens, dinner will be replaced by a set menu dinner (meal only, no drinks) at Crystal Restaurant, accompanied by an Apsara performance. To conclude your evening, take a short tuk-tuk ride back to your hotel.

Siem Reap Departure

Your time today will be at your leisure until your private car and driver arrive to transfer you to the airport for your onward journey.

We used ATA in Vietnam to book a 13 day itinerary up through Cambodia from Vietnam. We have never used a travel agent before and were a little nervous about working with someone we couldn’t talk to face to face, but everything worked out great. Our guides and drivers were awesome, they were always on time and everything went smoothly. Highly recommend Hong and the group at ATA.
