The trip.me way of travel
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.
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.
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.

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.
Huyen did a great job putting the trip together and assisting us with the planning. The package had a nice variety of places to see and things to experience. Some of the guides were better than others in terms of attitude and leading us. One improvement that is needed is none of the drivers could speak English. In particular at the airport being picked up, it was difficult to know what was going on or asking questions about where we were going, how far to the hotel and history of the area while driving. That particular driver was also sick and kept sneezing and coughing. I think I caught his cold because I became ill for 6 days. Other than that we loved the trip. The choice of hotels was very good!Read More Read More Less
Kamea was so helpful throughout the entire process and even during our trip when we had a few questions. We were particularity pleased with our guide Sunny in Cambodia. This is the 3rd time I've used trip.me and have been pleased each time. I continue to recommend to family, friends and co-workers.Read More Read More Less
Huyen was helpful and very organised. Every detail was taken care of. Wonderful!
great, I got more than what was promised.
We were 3 families booking via Trip.me - a total of 14 people (6 adults and 8 teenagers) on holiday to Vietnam for 11 nights. So a substantial payment (in advance) to a company we did not know. And everything worked perfectly, the payment was simple and secure, and the service delivered was fantastic : an excellent itinerary was worked on together and booked (with transport, hotels and excursions) and visa’s were obtained - all by Huyen of TripMe. I would not hesitate to recommend Huyen and this company to anyone.Read More Read More Less
