Day 1: Welcome to Vietnam!

Our trip begins with a welcome dinner at our favourite restaurant in Hanoi. Meet your group and share a few drinks with your new travel buddies. We’ll tell you everything you need to know about the next 13-days and nights.

Day 2: Foodie Tour & Culture Show

One thing Vietnam is famous for is the diverse range of exotic food. Our local guide will take us on a tour to some hidden places where you can sample weird, interesting and tasty food whilst getting to know your way around the city. Later today we go to see a water puppet show – probably one of the most random things you will experience in your life and a big part of the Vietnamese cultureGet ready to party, Hanoi-style! Vietnam is very different – in a good way! Mingle and dance with locals and other travellers in the alleys of Hanoi, grab yourself a tiny stool and join the crowd for some ‘fresh beer’.

Day 3: Discover Halong Bay

We leave Hanoi and get to Halong Pier, where we board our home for tonight. Cruise Halong Bay and Lan Ha Bay on a typical Vietnamese “junk” boat. Enjoy magical scenery as you cruise and kayak through crystal clear waters past hundreds of lime stone karsts. We stay overnight on a Vietnamese junk boat, moored in a secluded cove within Halong Bay

Day 4: Private Island Stay

Enjoy a night at our secret spot, hidden on a private beach in Halong Bay. It doesn’t get more idyllic than this! Chill in a hammock, go for a swim or kayak, play some beach volleyball and karaoke at night.

Day 5: More of Halong & Party Night in Hanoi

Wake up to the sound of the ocean and enjoy your surroundings on the island. After breakfast we had back towards Hanoi for another night on the town.

Day 6: Fly to Hoi An

It may not seem that way, but Vietnam is actually a pretty large country. To get the most out of your 13-days, our trip includes a flight from Hanoi to Hoi An. With red lanterns hanging from trees, buildings and shops all around town, Hoi An is known as the City of Lanterns. At night, when the lanterns light up the streets, we’ll take you on a walk through town and show you our favourite bars.

Day 7: Markets & Vietnamese Cooking Class

You think you’ve had good food before? You haven’t tried proper Vietnamese cuisine – made in Vietnam, by you! Learn to cook the most delicious dishes in a private cooking class. Yum Yum!

Day 8: Beach & Overnight Bus

Spend time in beautiful Hoi An where life is amazingly laid-back with a city center perfect for relaxing, eating and shopping and a beautiful beach a short bike ride from town. Later tonight, we get on the sleeper bus – you haven’t been to Vietnam if you haven’t been on a sleeper bus!

Day 9: Relax in Paradise

You'll jump on an overnight sleeper bus and wake up in beautiful Ninh Van Bay, just outside of Nha Trang, it's pure paradise! The hostel you will be staying at is located amongst the beautiful rolling hills of Vietnam's countryside, nestled in the valleys a stone's throw away from the beach. After breakfast the day is yours to do what you wish but be sure to meet your guide in the afternoon to explore the surrounding areas with a light hike! Otherwise relax by the pool, challenge your group to a game of beach volleyball, unwind with a movie in the outdoor cinema, pamper yourself at the spa or take to the water in a kayak.

Day 10: Explore Da Lat

The central city of the Vietnam highlands is famous for its cool temperatures and stunning waterfalls. Da Lat is known as the romantic city of Vietnam with lots of locals heading here to get married. We get here late afternoon, which gives us enough time to explore this cute town and visit ‘Crazy House’, if you like.

Day 11: Let’s walk down a Waterfall

The next day get ready for the ultimate thrill! We’ll head to the woods, get our gear and start the adventure in the canyon. Hike through lush green rain forest, do some abseiling, walk down a pounding waterfall before we get to the ‘washing machine’. Adrenaline rush guaranteed!

Day 12: Arrive in Ho Chi Minh City

We leave the mountains and take the bus to our final stop Ho Chi Minh City. This city is buzzing and great to have a good night out.

Day 13: Cu Chi Tunnels & Farewell

Obviously, you can’t visit Vietnam and not learn about the country’s history including the Vietnam War. Our local guide takes us to the Cu Chi Tunnels and gives us a good insight into what happened here.

Later tonight we get ready for the final night and enjoy farewell drinks on one of the rooftop bars. Tonight’s accommodation is still included in your tour.

Day 14: Farewell

Time to check out (unless you choose to stay a little longer) and make your way to whatever is next on your list. Whether it’s just heading to the airport to catch your flight home or travelling on to more adventures, we will help you with the planning.
