Tour Code

This will be a trip your family will never forget.

In this 3-week-long package, you will be able to discover not only the biggest cities in Vietnam known for their pulsing energy, vibrancy, spectacular food, and famous sites. You will also have the chance to visit some of the smaller less known and more authentic parts of Vietnam, where you will see how some locals still carry out their daily routines as they did hundreds of years ago.

There will be alternate days and times for you to explore the surrounding area with your family on your own allowing you to relax and explore your environment at your own pace.

Apart from major cities such as Ha Noi, Ha Long, Hue or Ho Chi Minh City, you will also be visiting places like Mai Chau – a rural area set in a beautiful valley and surrounded by hills, Nam Cat Tien (or Cat Tien National Park) – one of the largest protected lowland tropical forests left in Viet Nam – and Chau Doc – a small city in Mekong Delta bordering with Cambodia.
