Highlights Of Hanoi

As the capital of Vietnam, Hanoi boasts a wealth of captivating cultural and historical sites. During our full-day tour, we'll explore the city's highlights, immersing ourselves in its fascinating past.

We'll pay our respects at the grand and solemn Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum (please note it's closed on Mondays and Fridays and during October-November). Then, we'll visit the iconic One Pillar Pagoda, the exquisite Temple of Literature, Tran Quoc Temple by West Lake, and Quan Thanh Pagoda. Finally, we'll venture into the bustling Old Quarter, where the day concludes with a mesmerizing water puppet performance. The evening is yours to enjoy at leisure.

Ninh Binh Countryside

Ninh Binh serves as an ideal base for exploring Vietnam's iconic limestone landscapes. For centuries, this province has witnessed nature and society undergo countless transformations, yet it retains its pristine charm.

After breakfast at your hotel, we embark on a journey to Ninh Binh to explore Hoa Lu, the Ancient Royal capital of Vietnam. Here, we'll visit the Dinh King Temple and Le King Temple, both dating back to the 10th century, where we'll learn about the heroic histories of these two monarchs during the Chinese Wars. Our adventure continues with a boat trip to either Trang An, Tam Coc, or Van Long, each a unique and captivating tourist attraction. Finally, we'll check in at our hotel.

Ninh Binh – Ha Long Bay

Halong Bay, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is a breathtaking expanse of over 2,000 floating islands, shrouded in legendary tales. Legend has it that dragons once descended to protect Vietnam from invaders, creating the limestone karsts that dot the bay.

Our journey begins with a 9:00 AM departure from your hotel in Ninh Binh. We'll traverse the lush landscapes of the Red River Delta en route to the famous UNESCO World Heritage site, Halong Bay. There, you'll board a luxurious junk ship for an enchanting overnight cruise. As you relax onboard, marvel at the extraordinary limestone karsts emerging from the sea, surrounded by thousands of jungle-covered islands, creating a timeless and magical world.

Indulge in a fresh seafood lunch while savoring the incredible views with a drink in hand. We'll take you to a traditional fishing village, where locals have ingeniously built an entire town on the decks of their boats. Explore Tien Ong Cave before returning to the cruise for cocktails, canapés, and a captivating sunset. Your day culminates with a romantic, candlelit dinner.

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

Awake to the morning sun casting its golden glow upon the bay's karsts. Join a Tai Chi demonstration on the ship's deck as you embrace the serenity of the moment. Each slow, controlled movement serves to soothe both body and mind. Afterward, the cruise will take you on a scenic tour of the bay until it's time to disembark.

Upon arrival, your driver will be waiting to transfer you to Noi Bai Airport for your flight to Da Nang. Upon landing in Da Nang, we'll swiftly pick you up and transfer you to your hotel in Hoi An's downtown area.

Hoi An Day Excursion

The ancient town of Hoi An, nestled along the banks of the Thu Bon River, boasts a rich tapestry of history. Traditional Japanese merchant houses, ancient Chinese temples, and teahouses line its timeworn streets, preserving an incredible legacy. While the town retains its charm, it has also embraced modernity with lounge bars, boutique hotels, and an array of tailor shops.

Today, you can choose from the following itineraries to explore Hoi An in your preferred way:

Option 1: Cooking Class Start your cooking class adventure with a visit to the vibrant local markets, where you'll select the freshest ingredients for your culinary creations. Return to the kitchen, where your skilled chef will demonstrate how to prepare typical Vietnamese cuisine. Afterward, it's your turn to cook and savor your delicious creations.

In the afternoon, explore the enchanting time-capsule town of Old Hoi An on a walking tour with your guide. The town, once a bustling sea port in Asia, showcases a fusion of architectural styles and cultures. Wander through traditional Chinese shops, elegant French homes, and across an ancient Japanese bridge. Hoi An is also home to silk markets, Vietnamese street food stalls, and talented street performers, all of which are sure to enchant you.

Option 2: Tra Que Village Discovery After breakfast at your hotel, embark on an invigorating bike ride to Tra Que Village. Here, you'll visit a local farm and immerse yourself in authentic Vietnamese rural life. Learn about the village's history and witness the daily practices of vegetable farming.

Participate in various activities alongside the farmers, such as collecting seaweed fertilizer, sowing seeds, raking, watering, and harvesting. Dive into the cultural experience by joining a local family to prepare and enjoy a meal featuring the produce you've helped cultivate. You'll also savor other local specialties like Tam Huu (spring rolls) and Banh Xeo (pancakes). Don't forget to indulge in a post-lunch nap before returning to the fields to learn how to harvest and wrap the produce. In the mid-afternoon, bid farewell to your newfound friends and return to Hoi An to explore its Old Quarter.

Option 3: Bike or Motorbike to the Countryside Our guide will pick you up at your hotel on a motorbike and lead you to Tra Que Village. From there, we'll ride to the river and board a local ferry to Kim Bong Village. This picturesque village is renowned for wood carving and traditional mat weaving. During our visit, we'll observe a local family weaving mats, an art that dates back to olden times. You'll also get a chance to make and taste the perfect Banh Dap (rice cracker).

We'll continue our journey to a small village, where you'll have the opportunity to try your hand at making Mi Quang, a famous local noodle dish. Later, we'll ride through the countryside, and for an adrenaline rush, cross a 300-meter bamboo bridge over a river. Our destination is Cam Thanh Village, where you can savor a delicious lunch at a local homestay. Afterward, we'll take you back to your hotel, either by motorbike or bike, depending on your preference.

En route, we'll make stops to visit the picturesque fishing village of Lang Co Beach, the Cham Museum, and ascend the Pass of Ocean Clouds for panoramic views of the surroundings. Upon arrival in Hue, check in at your hotel and enjoy your free time.

Hue Imperial City Tour

Hue, a city steeped in history, was once the imperial capital and is now a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site. Nestled along the banks of the Perfume River, this city boasts incredible citadels, opulent palaces, and royal tombs. Many of these sites are easily accessible by river, offering a unique perspective of the city.

Our day begins with a visit to the Imperial Citadel, where the Nguyen Dynasty reigned from 1802 to 1945. Explore the ruins of this magnificent monument before strolling through the "Old City" to Tinh Tam Lake, a tranquil spot frequented by emperors seeking relaxation.

In the afternoon, we'll visit Mu Pagoda, which overlooks the Perfume River. Our final stop is at Khai Dinh's Tomb, a unique fusion of Vietnamese and European architectural styles. The rest of the day is yours to spend at your leisure.

Hue – Flight to Ho Chi Minh – Ho Chi Minh Visit

Welcome to Ho Chi Minh City, formerly known as Saigon, a vibrant metropolis where lively streets are infused with the aromas of chili, garlic, ginger, and coriander. Upon your arrival at the airport, our private transfer will whisk you to your centrally located hotel in the heart of this bustling city.

Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam's commercial center, offers a captivating blend of tradition, modernity, colonial history, and reunification. You'll have the morning to enjoy a leisurely breakfast before embarking on your chosen excursion. You can opt to visit the Cu Chi Tunnels, a significant site from the Vietnam-American War, where you can explore the intriguing tunnels, discover hidden doors, and learn about the once-lethal traps.

Alternatively, you may choose to visit the War Remnants Museum or the Presidential Palace, depending on your interests. In the evening, take a leisurely stroll along the city's colonial streets, visiting landmarks like the Old Saigon Post Office, Dong Khoi Street, the Continental Hotel, the Opera House, and City Hall. Don't hesitate to seek recommendations from your guide for dining options, whether you're craving street food or a rooftop bar experience.

Ho Chi Minh – Mekong – Ben Tre

Bid farewell to Ho Chi Minh City as you set out on a journey to explore the Mekong Delta. Upon your arrival at Hàm Luông Pier, you'll embark on a captivating cruise along the Bến Tre River, where you'll witness vibrant activities such as fishing, water transportation, and traditional brick making, all carried out in the age-old local style.

You'll have the opportunity to visit local workshops where artisans skillfully produce activated charcoal, dried coconut products, and coconut husk brooms. As the day unfolds, we'll navigate the natural scissors creeks, becoming narrower as we venture deeper into the village. Here, you'll embark on a ride on a motorized rickshaw, known as "Xe Lôi," or take a scenic bike ride, passing through lush rice fields and vegetable gardens, immersing yourself in local life.

Lunch will be a delightful affair at a local family's home. In the afternoon, enjoy a sampan ride along the tranquil canals, and as the day concludes, we'll transport you back to Hàm Luông Pier before returning to your hotel in Ho Chi Minh City.

Ho Chi Minh – Siem Reap

Welcome to Siem Reap, a city that has experienced a remarkable transformation. Beyond the temples, you'll discover a vibrant destination filled with culinary delights, adventures, and a rich cultural scene. Upon your arrival at the airport, we'll escort you to your hotel, where you can relax and settle in.

Siem Reap – Outlying Temples Exploring

The temples of Angkor hold a special place in the hearts of all Cambodians, symbolizing their resilience and pride. These ancient wonders continue to inspire and unite the nation.

After breakfast at your hotel, your journey begins with a visit to the ancient Khmer civilization site of Hariharalaya, which thrived in the late 9th and early 10th centuries. These temples, the earliest in the Angkor region, collectively form the Rolous group, consisting of Lo Lei, Preah Koh, and Bakhong Temples. During this visit, you'll uncover the heroic stories of these two kings in the context of the Chinese Wars.

Lunch will be shared with a local family. Afterward, we'll journey to the rural outskirts, approximately 35 kilometers from the Angkor area, to explore the magnificent Banteay Srei Temple, dating back to the 10th century and dedicated to Shiva. This temple is renowned for its intricate and exquisite pink sandstone carvings, often described as too delicate for the hands of a man.

As we return to Siem Reap, we'll visit Banteay Samre Temple, adorned with remarkable reliefs depicting Vishnu and Krishna legends.

Siem Reap – Angkor Highlighted Temples

Begin your day with an early breakfast at your hotel. At 7:30 AM, we depart for a visit to the enchanting Ta Prohm Temple, where nature has entwined itself with history. The temple's overgrown roots and haunting atmosphere make for a mesmerizing experience, one that you'll remember for years to come.

Our exploration continues at the incredible ruins of Angkor Wat, one of the world's most renowned archaeological sites. This iconic temple, with its awe-inspiring architecture, still boasts exquisite Apsara carvings, representing the pinnacle of Angkorian-era art.

Next, we delve into the mysteries of the Royal City of Angkor Thom. Dominated by the 54-tower temple of Bayon, this area offers a surreal experience. The stone faces staring out with silent, enigmatic gazes transport you to a bygone era. We'll also explore the surrounding complex, including Baphou, Elephant Terraces, the Leper King Terrace, and the Royal Palace Enclosure.

Our temple exploration will conclude with a visit to Preah Khan Temple, constructed in the 12th century by King Jayavarman VII. Its architectural style is reminiscent of Ta Prohm Temple.
