Ho Chi Minh City Arrival

Upon your arrival, you will be warmly greeted just outside the baggage claim area by your guide. Look for your guide holding a welcoming sign adorned with the ASIA TOUR ADVISOR LOGO and your name. As you are transferred to the heart of Ho Chi Minh City, your guide will provide you with a captivating introduction to this vibrant metropolis.

Ho Chi Minh City, often referred to as Saigon, is a city that never sleeps. It boasts a plethora of outstanding restaurants and bars, catering to all tastes, from humble street food vendors to the iconic rooftop bar at the Rex Hotel. The Rex Hotel, once frequented by international correspondents during the Vietnam War, was home to the famous "Five O’clock Follies," the U.S. military attaché’s daily press briefings. Whatever your interests, don't hesitate to seek personalized recommendations from your guide.

Ho Chi Minh City – Mekong Delta – Ben Tre – Can Tho

Ben Tre is one the best area of the Mekong Delta that seems to retain the feeling of being a complete backwater, to fascinatingly invite tourists to the untouched and natural landscapes to discover its rustic local life, beautiful canals and traditional activities

After breakfast, your private guide and driver will take you out of HCM City in a private vehicle and onto some beautiful country roads to Ben Tre Town in the Mekong Delta, famous for its vast rice fields, numerous waterways, and beautiful landscapes. Known as the ‘rice bowl’ of Vietnam, this region produces most of Vietnam’s fruit, rice, sugar cane, and coconuts.

After the two-hour drive through the lush farming land, you will arrive in Ben Tre where you will set out on a motorized boat trip on narrow channels winding through the coconut forest. During the boat ride, you will stop at the local cottage industries to see how the local people make bricks and weave sleeping mats by hand. Learn about their craft handed down through generations.

Take a leisure walk along the village lanes, visiting the local homes to try fresh fruits, taste delicious honey tea while enjoying a local Tai Tu music show. Continue to visit another workshop where the local delicacy of coconut candy is produced and a wide range of coconut husk and fiber products are skillfully handcrafted.

Next, take a small sampan through palm-fringed back canals, gliding peacefully along the hidden waterways surrounded by an immense variety of tropical plants. The quiet, rural setting is a welcome and restorative retreat to the frenetic buzz of Ho Chi Minh City which seems far, far away.

Enjoy sitting in the back a Motor Cart (xe lôi) passing local hamlets, rice fields, coconut groves, and lush orchard farms while meeting with local people.

After enjoying lunch at a local restaurant you will return to Ben Tre town and continue the drive through the fields and towns of the Mekong to Can Tho city.

Spend the evening at your leisure. Explore Can Tho night market by yourself and try some local food. 

 

Can Tho – Cai Rang Floating Market – Ho Chi Minh City

Begin your day with a leisurely boat trip that will take you through the picturesque tributaries of the Lower Mekong River, specifically the Bassac River. Your destination is Cai Rang floating market, one of the liveliest in the entire region. Here, you'll have the unique opportunity to witness the intricate preparation of Vietnamese vermicelli soup. You can also meander through the village, interact with friendly locals, and even test your courage by crossing a "Monkey bridge," a structure ingeniously constructed using a single bamboo stem.

As your exploration continues, you'll have the chance to visit an orchard garden. After a fulfilling lunch, you'll return to Ho Chi Minh City. Upon arrival, check in to your hotel and enjoy your free time.

Ho Chi Minh City Tour – Da Nang - Hoi An

Start your day with a hearty breakfast at your hotel, followed by a visit to either the War Remnants Museum or the History Museum, depending on your personal preferences. Additionally, you'll explore the former Presidential Palace, a magnificent and historically significant building. Your day concludes with a leisurely stroll past (and perhaps into) the Old Post Office, the Notre Dame Cathedral, Dong Khoi Street, the Opera House, and City Hall. The evening is yours to savor the local atmosphere, indulge in authentic Vietnamese cuisine, and peruse the vibrant Ben Thanh Market. Later, you'll be transferred to the airport for your flight to Danang. Upon arrival, you'll be picked up and transferred to Hoi An, where you can relax on the tranquil shores of Cua Dai Beach.

Hoi An – Tra Que Village

Begin your day with a delectable breakfast at your hotel, and then embark on a delightful bike ride to Tra Que Village. Here, you'll immerse yourself in authentic Vietnamese rural life. Learn about the village's rich history and witness the daily activities of vegetable farming. Gain insight into how these vegetables play a role in traditional Vietnamese medicine.

Participate in the daily tasks of local farmers, from collecting seaweed fertilizer and sowing to raking, watering, and harvesting. Afterward, you'll join a local family to prepare and enjoy a meal that features the produce you helped cultivate. Savor other local specialties such as Tam huu (spring rolls) and Bahn xeo (pancakes). An after-lunch nap is a delightful local tradition to experience before you return to the fields to complete the harvest.

Spend this afternoon exploring Hoian Town, recognized by UNESCO as a World Heritage site because of its historic role in international trade, unusually well-preserved ancient streets and homes. Sites include the Japanese Bridge, a Sino-Vietnamese merchant house, a Chinese Temple, Hoian Central Market, and the Culture Museum.

 

Hoi An – Da Nang – Ha Noi

After a sumptuous breakfast at your hotel, you'll have some free time to enjoy the beach until you are picked up for your flight to Hanoi. Upon arriving in Hanoi, you'll be greeted and transferred to your hotel. Take advantage of your free time to explore the city.

Hanoi – Halong Bay

Our journey embarks from Hanoi where we'll pick you up for a scenic drive through the verdant landscapes of the Red River Delta. Our destination: the world-famous UNESCO World Heritage site, Halong Bay, Lan Ha Bay. Here, you'll embark on a luxurious cruise for an enchanting overnight cruise.

As you relax on board, you'll be captivated by the breathtaking limestone karsts that majestically emerge from the azure waters, surrounded by thousands of jungle-clad islands seemingly suspended on the gentle waves. The turquoise waters of the Gulf of Tonkin conceal hidden grottoes and ancient caves, creating a timeless and mesmerizing world.

Enjoy a delicious seafood lunch with breathtaking views and a refreshing drink. Our next destination is a charming fishing village, where locals have ingeniously turned their boats into a floating community. Meet fishermen, explore a stunning lagoon by kayak or rowboat, and unwind on deck as the sun sets. Spend a delightful overnight stay on board!

Halong Bay - Hanoi

Let the rhythm of the boat lull you out of your sleep this morning. Hear the sounds of the birds as they greet the day. 

Kickstart your day with Tai Chi on the top deck or savor the sunrise over the bay. Sip on morning coffee or tea before setting out to explore nearby islands via rowboat.

Explore this captivating marine landscape with cliffs stretching vertically out of the water and you feel a sense of freedom while paddling through a labyrinth of jade-green water, rocks and vivid tree-topped islets.

Upon returning to the Cruise. Enjoy a Vietnamese lunch on board as you cruise back to Halong City. Upon arrival, your driver will be waiting at the dock to take you to Hanoi

Hanoi, with its rich and captivating history, is an inviting and easy-going city. Consider taking an evening stroll to prepare for your tour the following morning.

Hanoi City Tour

It is unmissable in terms of its pretty pagodas, ancient temples, enchanting French colonial quarter and cultural institutions. Just as fun, however, is darting down its winding lanes and discovering your own favourite hidden corners.
After a satisfying breakfast at your hotel, our local tour guide will pick you up to embark on an exploration of Vietnam's capital city, Hanoi. With over a thousand years of history, this city is rich with captivating cultural and historical sites. Your itinerary includes visits to the imposing Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum, home to the preserved body of "Uncle Ho."  and his House on Stilts to observe how he lived and how his life unfolded to become one of modern history’s greatest names.

More than expected
Reviewed On: Dec 28, 2023SimbagAustralia

I had a brilliant time in Vietnam. The trip ran smoothly from transport to activities to accommodation and food. I thought the standard of accommodation was great. I loved that there were opportunities to learn about the culture with local guides, fun activities and we got a real sense of the food culture too. It was nice to have room for down time too. Hats off to Hong, he made us feel very comfortable and welcome. He made it a very stress-free holiday. I felt he was there to support with any questions we had.

Thanh, my guide in Ho Chi Minh was very good. I enjoyed the detailed instructions in the Mekong delta. There are many things he showed me and explained in detail. I wouldn't even see people without him. He is also flexible in making changes to suit my photography desires. I also like the wonderful resort of Can Tho. The boat trip was also great.
