What could be better than a trip that lasts for nearly 2 weeks for you and you family to explore the best sites of Viet Nam? You will be visiting places such as Ha Noi – the capital, Ha Long – one of the New 7 Wonders of Nature listed by UNESCO, Hoi An – a small famous ancient town in the middle of the country, or Ho Chi Minh City (Sai Gon), the biggest city of Viet Nam. You will then be having short guided tours to the main tourist attractions in each city or some free time to explore the cites with your family in your own way.
