Vietnam Vacation

Vietnam Travel Information

Vietnam Tours

On trips to Vietnam, a majority of tours start in the culturally diverse capital of Hanoi, which is adorned with French-styled buildings, its temples and pagodas, and azure, serene lakes. Hanoi is a unique and quiet paradise filled with delicious foods, the 1,000-year-old Temple of Literature, and is the perfect place to kick off your tour to the rest of the country.

Travel by Boat

Step onto a ship and explore the spectacular scenery of Ha Long Bay, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and rightly referred to as ‘Heaven on Earth’ by the locals. More than 1,600 green islands scatter the waters and each one has its own riches you get to explore. Take a kayak and weave between the islands. Go fishing for squid. And, visit the echoing Sung Sot Cave or go to Titov Island where you can swim at the peaceful beaches or hike to the top of the island to see the country span out before you.

 

Still have your sea legs? Customize your holiday for a trip to Laos and Cambodia. Take a cruise on the Mekong River and enter into the Laotian treasure-filled Pak Ou Caves where over four thousand gold lacquered Buddha statues stand. Visit the ancient temples in the Cambodian city, Siem Reap like Angkor Wat, the largest religious monument in the world, or Ta Prohm where tree roots drape onto the worn bricks of the 12th- and 13th-century temple. See other iconic sites like the Imperial City Hue in Vietnam or the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum.

Immerse Yourself in the Culture

Later, fall in love with the scenic countryside and the people of Vietnam by going to the villages and diving into their culture. Meet villagers and work alongside them in paddy fields, planting rice plants. Learn about the people’s intricate silk weavings and lantern making, and have fun as you’re taught to paddle a bamboo basket boat. If you want to shop among the locals, make sure you take a motorboat to stop in the Cai Rang floating market.

Vietnam is a home to an ancient history that brings inspiration and rich culture to the country, its people, and its tourists today. It’s a perfect destination for families looking for unique experiences and a chance to learn more about this Asian culture.

Best time of the year to visit Vietnam?

Being so diverse and reliant on your location, Vietnam is a hard place to call as you can almost certainly expect every type of weather on your Vietnam tours.

Be sure to avoid monsoon season in the northeast between October and March. Similarly, be sure to avoid central Vietnam during the months of July-November due to a series of violent typhoons.

That being said, Vietnam weather is unpredictable and so the majority of the time the weather is beautiful. If it is damp, it usually adds to the atmosphere.

Popular times to visit are during the summer months of April-August. Vietnam tours are also popular between October-March, mainly in the south.

If you are backpacking South East Asia it is imperative that you give Vietnam the time it deserves by stopping over for a long stay. A few days simply won't do.

Main Attractions and Tourist Regions in Vietnam

Located in Southeast Asia and curving along the South China Sea, Vietnam has one of the longest coastlines in Asia. It has over 3,444 kilometers of coastline and a countless number of scenic beaches that attract visitors to a memorable Vietnam holiday. The country revels in its natural blue ocean beauty, green mountains, and its architectural diversity. Vietnam is strewn with pagodas and temples that are typical sites of their Buddhist, Taoist, and Confucianism backgrounds. But war has also left behind its mark in the form of unique French-styled buildings in the heart of Vietnam’s capital, Hanoi.

Though this country has been battered with war, the people are friendly, optimistic, and take pride in their country and how far they’ve come. Whether you work alongside villagers planting food for their livelihood or greet locals who live on inhabited islands, they’ll make you feel welcome as you tour the exquisite wonders of their nation.

Vietnam is famous for its pagodas, floating markets, and vibrant islands. The country has over 1,600 islands, many of which are located in the beautiful Ha Long Bay, which is also referred to as ‘Heaven on Earth’. Take days exploring the scenery of Ha Long Bay on a cruise between and to the islands. Later on land, take a bicycle tour around the countryside and ride to the ancient Hoa Lu citadel. Clap along to entertaining musical performances put on by local Muong and Thai troupes, and laugh as you try to paddle down a river in a bamboo basket boat.

Private Tours to Vietnam

Food and Culture of Vietnam

Vietnam tours will open your eyes to the fascinating history and the fervent integrity that the Vietnamese have generated over time. From the mastermind trenches to the somber and overwhelming museums, Ho Chi Minh, the capital, formerly known as Saigon,  propels you into poignant museums and a great understanding of the history of Vietnam.

If you are after an eclectic array of Southeast Asian food then search no further because Vietnamese food is your next stop. Traveling Vietnam will provide you with a multitude of dishes, ranging from the obscure to the sumptuous (at cheap prices).

The beauty of Vietnamese food lies in its range of spices used in the majority of their dishes. A fusion of ginger, lemongrass, lime, chili, cinnamon and mint, including a few other specialties, is a novel and flavorsome addition to any dish. Indulge in Pho noodle soup or goi salad and let your senses run wild.

Vietnam Reviews Of Our Travellers

Keren L., March 2019

Huyen was amazing, not only when we were planning our trip, but also while we were traveling in Vietnam and Cambodia. She helped us plan an unforgettable trip and was in touch with us almost daily, and made sure we were happy with our guides and accommodation. She is personable, kind, helpful and accessible, we highly recommend her!

Edwin M., March 2019

Huyen was available to answer questions. We never got left out. All pickups worked out.

Ranjeet N., March 2019

We did 4 areas starting at Phnom Penh, the itinerary was good but the guide was very poor and did not know his facts very well. We booked a Mekong dinner Cruise which we assumed would be a meal on the boat, in fact, we were dropped off on a floating platoon and had dinner on our own. No heed was taken to our dietary requirements of no beef. We then went to Siem Reap, definitely the highlight of the trip. Our guide Theany and driver Hong were absolutely fantastic and we really had a great time enjoying the sites and having fun. We then went to Luang Prabang, the guide was informative the tour was well organized. Then finally to Vientiane where we only had 1 night, it was enough to see what there was, it was very hot. The guide was also good. In Phnom Penh, the hotel was very poor and nowhere near the quality we wanted or had paid for, in fact, none of the hotels was 4 star which is what we assumed we had paid for.

Very fast in replying my questions and getting things confirmed. All hotels, excursions and transfers were available and on time. One flight accidentaly booked on the wrong day was corrected without fail.

Janet H., March 2019

From first contact we couldn’t have been happier with Nhung. She worked with us to come up with a trip through Vietnam that was a perfect fit!
