The remainder of the day is yours to settle in, unwind, and explore at your leisure.

Hanoi, Vietnam's capital city, is a haven for seven million people. Immerse yourself in its traditional elegance, featuring French colonial architecture, tree-lined boulevards, picturesque lakes, and the vibrant Old Quarter. Observe locals practicing Tai Chi by the lake, and savor the sights and sounds of barbers and food vendors conducting their sidewalk trade.

 Hanoi Sightseeing

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." You'll also experience the delicate beauty of the One Pillar Pagoda, Tran Quoc Temple, and Quan Thanh Pagoda.

Following a delicious lunch, you'll venture to the Temple of Literature, a treasure trove of ancient Vietnamese relics. To cap off your day, enjoy a one-hour cyclo tour through the bustling and lively Old Quarter, immersing yourself in the vibrant marketplace atmosphere. Your day culminates with a unique water puppet show, showcasing the cultural richness of northern Vietnam.

 Hanoi - Ninh Binh - Hanoi

Begin your day with a delectable breakfast at the hotel. We'll depart from Hanoi to Hoa Lu - Tam Coc, where you'll be treated to captivating rural scenery along the way. On arrival in Ninh Binh province, your guide will escort you to the historical city of Hoa Lu. Here, you'll explore the temples dedicated to Dinh and Le kings, learning about their heroic tales from the 10th century during the Chinese Wars.

For those feeling adventurous and fit, there's an option to embark on a half-hour trek up one of the nearby limestone karst hills, providing a rewarding panoramic view. Afterward, we'll journey to Tam Coc, located about 10 kilometers from Hoa Lu, and enjoy lunch at a local restaurant.

Following lunch, you'll experience the enchanting Tam Coc by boarding a bamboo boat rowed by local experts along the Hoang Long River.

The journey takes approximately two hours, offering glimpses of local fishermen, riverside village life, and the iconic limestone karst formations.

For the more adventurous, you can climb to Bich Dong Pagoda, nestled on Ngu Nhac Mountain and dating back to 1428. Comprising three structures (Ha, Trung, and Thuong Pagodas), the pagoda's ascent offers breathtaking views. Return by sampan to Tam Coc town before heading back to Hanoi, where you'll arrive in the late afternoon.

 Hanoi - Halong Bay

Our journey embarks from Hanoi at 8:00 AM, 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. Here, you'll embark on a luxurious junk ship 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.

Indulge in a sumptuous seafood lunch as you savor the awe-inspiring views, with a refreshing drink in hand. Our next stop will be a traditional fishing village, where resourceful locals have transformed their boats into an entire floating community. Following this, you'll have the opportunity to explore Tien Ong Cave before returning to the cruise for an evening of cocktails, canapés, and a magnificent sunset. The day culminates in a romantic candlelit dinner.

 Halong Bay - Hanoi - Fly to Danang - Hoi An

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.

Upon returning to the junk, witness a fruit carving demonstration and participate in a cooking class, learning to create traditional Vietnamese cuisine from scratch. 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 Noi Bai Airport for your short flight to Danang.

Upon arrival in Danang, your tour guide and driver will transfer you to your hotel in Hoi An—a destination that seamlessly blends old-world charm with pristine beaches and luxurious resorts.

 Walking Tour of Hoi An Ancient Town & Boat Trip

Discover Hoi An on foot, immersing yourself in its unique atmosphere, which combines elements of Vietnamese, Chinese, and Japanese culture. Marvel at the architectural wonders of Ancient Houses, Assembly Halls influenced by Chinese traditions, craft manufacturing workshops, and the iconic Japanese Covered Bridge. Stroll through silk markets, savor local Vietnamese cuisine at food stalls, and be entertained by talented street performers.

After your guided tour, spend the afternoon exploring the town at your own pace or relax on Cua Dai Beach.

 Hoi An Countryside Tour with Cooking & Biking

Begin your day with a delightful breakfast at your Hoi An hotel. Then, embark on a bicycle tour through the picturesque Hoi An countryside. The journey commences with a ride to Tra Que, a village renowned for its vegetable and herb cultivation. As you cycle, you'll pass through scenic rice paddies and rural landscapes.

In Tra Que, you'll explore local workplaces, witnessing age-old techniques used to create crafts such as activated charcoal, dried coconut products, and traditional coir (coconut fiber) creations. You'll have the chance to pick fresh vegetables and herbs for an upcoming cooking lesson. Visit a local village market to shop for the ingredients you'll need.

The next destination is a family home in Tra Que, where you'll participate in a cooking class led by a family chef. Learn the traditional methods of preparing and cooking Vietnamese cuisine from scratch, using the freshest ingredients and traditional utensils. After the class, savor the dishes you've created.

In the afternoon, bid farewell to your host family and embark on a biking adventure to a fishing village and the water coconut forest in Cam Thanh. During your visit to Cam Thanh, you'll board bamboo basket boats rowed by local fishermen to explore the mangrove forests and canals. Discover traditional fishing techniques and return to your hotel by bicycle.

 Hoi An - Hue Sightseeing

Enjoy breakfast at your Hoi An hotel before being picked up for your transfer to Hue. As you drive through the scenic Pass of Ocean Clouds, you'll be treated to a breathtaking panoramic view of the mountains and sea. Upon arrival in Hue, embark on a tour of the Imperial City located within the Citadel—a complex constructed in the early 19th century, modeled after Beijing's Forbidden City.

Explore the Thai Hoa Palace, an expansive hall featuring an ornate roof supported by 80 elaborately carved and lacquered columns. Visit the Halls of the Mandarins, view the Nine Dynastic Urns, and see the site where the Forbidden Purple City once stood. Conclude your tour with a visit to Dong Ba Market. In the afternoon, embark on a boat trip along the Perfume River to visit Thien Mu Pagoda and the Tomb of Emperor Minh Mang. This tomb, built in 1840, is celebrated for its magnificent architecture and intricate decorations, making it one of Hue's most beautiful pagodas. Spend the night in Hue City.

 Hue - Thuy Bieu Biking - Ho Chi Minh

Set off for an adventure on two wheels as you depart from the city center, cycling to Thuy Bieu village via the southern bank of the Perfume River. The initial part of the journey may be bustling, but the rewards become evident as you reach the village. Explore the Tiger Fighting Arena, a historical site where elephants and tigers once engaged in combat for the amusement of the Emperor, the royal family, and the mandarins.

Continue your journey to the Elephant Temple, a royal temple where the King's war elephants were honored and laid to rest. Enjoy the rural surroundings and lush paths in Thuy Bieu village as you cycle, taking in the serene ambiance.

Visit a local residence in Thuy Bieu and witness the art of silk painting by local artisans. Enjoy a relaxing foot massage and soak your tired feet in warm herbal water, a local treatment, before your cooking class. Collaborate with the family chef to learn the traditional techniques of preparing and cooking Vietnamese dishes from scratch.

After your cooking class, you'll have the opportunity to taste your own culinary creations. Bid farewell to your host family and return by boat to Toa Kham Boat Dock in the city center. From there, explore the nearby area at your leisure.

In the evening, transfer to the airport for your departure flight to Ho Chi Minh City. Upon arrival, your guide and driver will take you to your hotel in the city center for check-in. Spend the evening exploring the vibrant and bustling city on your own.

 Ho Chi Minh Sightseeing – Cu Chi Tunnels

Beginning your day at 7:45-8:00AM, this half day tour will take you to the Ben Duoc tunnels
where you can explore the Cu Chi Tunnels with fewer visitors for a more personalized
experience. After a 90-minute car ride, watch a film about the Vietnam War and learn about how
the Viet Cong made traps and weapons. Then take a walk-through Saigon, bustling market,
flower shops and vintage Vespa mechanics before stopping for an iced coffee in a hidden café
frequented by locals. Lastly, stop by an old house with secret bunker under its floor to see
where VC commandos stored weapons for their attack on South Vietnam president back in
1968 before returning to your hotel in early evening.

 Ho Chi Minh City - Mekong Delta

Begin your day with breakfast at your hotel. Our guide will pick you up and transfer you to Ben Tre. You'll be picked up at Phong Nam Pier (Phong Nam old ferry station), where you'll embark on a boat journey along one of the tributaries of the Mekong River. As you navigate these waters, you'll witness the vibrant activities of local life, including fishing and water transportation. During your journey, you'll also stop at a brickwork site where coconut charcoal is produced and observe the coconut husking process. Here, you'll have the chance to learn about the making of coconut candies, a local specialty.

The boat will lead you to natural scissors creeks, which appear narrower as you venture deeper into the village. Take a stroll to a family that creates sleep mats and explore the tranquil village, immersing yourself in the authentic daily life and gaining insights into tropical culture. A delicious lunch will be served at a local restaurant.

In the afternoon, enjoy a biking excursion around the village, followed by a rowing-boat ride along water palm creeks. Conclude your boat journey at Hung Vuong Pier, where a car will be waiting to transport you to Ho Chi Minh. Upon arrival in Ho Chi Minh, 
check in to your hotel and enjoy some leisure time

 Ho Chi Minh City Departure

You have the morning free to relax and explore at your own pace. Later, your private car will arrive to transfer you to the airport for your departing flight.

We’re still so glad we let Jenny handles the booking for our 12 days tour. Being first timer to the country and wanting to visit so many places from north to south it would have taken us forever to research and plan on our own. With Asia Tour Advisors help all we had to do were showed up. Great itinerary and schedule, strategic hotel locations and accommodations, timely and safe drivers, great English speaking and experienced tour guides. We especially enjoyed the company of Anh who guided us through our tours in Hanoi, Danang and Hoi An, he’s really knowledgeable about the area, was very patience and thorough, spoke great English and was a very pleasant person to be around. We’ve never utilized a touring company before so we can’t compare, but given our personal experience with this company we’d say they are great. Highly recommended!

Vietnam Escape

If your looking for a variety of tours in South East Asia and more I recommend Asia Tour advisor 1000%.

They have consistently delivered and exceeded my expectations.

In years past to Cambodia and recently Vietnam.

Most recently Ms. Tham N assisted me with creating the perfect 12 day tour of Vietnam.

We came up with rough itineraries and worked them out from start to finish, with alternatives if necessary. Ms. Tham listened and was in constant contact.

ATA with Ms. Tham helped create the best experience for my colleagues and myself.

She was very astute in budget and time restrictions, she and the staff were communicating through whole process.

If any “bumps” come up they are available to assist 24/7.

Asia Tour Advisor is your place they will meet and exceed your expectations.

We booked Family Discover Vietnam with Asia Tour Advisor and could not be more impressed with the level of service we received. Jenny Phuong organised the tours, hotels, private drivers and internal flights for us. The quality of all the hotels we stayed in was superb and the whole itinerary was impeccably organised. Even when things were out of Jenny's control, she went out of her way to put things right for us and kept us informed on everything that was going on throughout our trip. She was always on hand for any questions we had and went above and beyond to arrange nice tours that suited us and our 1 year old baby.

We just got back last week from 2 weeks long tour with 11 family members traveling together. Nearly every aspect of the tour exceeded our expectations! The included meals and activities were the highlight for me. Our tour guides were also remarkable people who shared history, culture and a bit about themselves to help us appreciate the wonders of the country. The transportation was also very comfortable. And if you want to really enjoy yourself, choose the five star option for the cruise on Ha Long Bay. I will never forget how beautiful it was, both the scenery and the ship! Thank you Tham and your team for an fantastic tour. I wish Asia were closer to home!
