As soon as you arrive from Noi Bai International Airport, we'll take you to a hotel in the less touristy part of Hanoi Old Town, giving you a taste of the local vibe. Depending on the time of your arrival, we'll adjust our plans for the day to ensure you have the best experience. But the real excitement starts at 06:00pm with our "Night in Hanoi" adventure. From crowded streets to hidden alleyways, this tour will give you an authentic, up-close journey through the heart of Hanoi. 


Brace yourself for an epic journey on our 2nd day as we head up North to Ha Giang - the most northern point of Vietnam. Get your cameras ready to capture the beautiful natural scenery and the famous road loops. Going through the mountainous villages, you'll stumble upon the cascading rice terraces, meadows and orchards, and interact with the local tribes. We'll also visit the King H'Mong Palace and see the historic Lung Cu flagpole at the Vietnam-China border. After this incredible excursion, we'll return to Hanoi to recharge our batteries for the next leg of the trip. 


From the capital, we will fly to Buon Ma Thuot to visit Vietnam’s highland area. Based on availability and your choice, our base for the next 3 days will be a lakeside resort with colonial French-style bungalows. During the stay, we'll connect with nature by kayaking on the lake at sunrise, biking around the area, and going on light treks to a nearby waterfalls for a swim and enjoy a tasty picnic lunch full of local specialties. And there's even more! The journey continues as we'll also visit local plantations (from coffee, cocoa, to avocado) to know more about the area's agricultural products. For a deeper look into the cultures of local ethnic minorities, we'll have a communal dinner featuring traditional music and dance. 


Find out why Da Nang is considered one of the best places to live in Vietnam with our fantastic line-up of activities! On the 1st day, we'll set off to the local craft villages and see how local specialties are produced. We will also lose ourselves in the labyrinths of the fishing village alleyways.

The last part of our Da Nang journey is all about that beach life! Imagine relaxing on a pristine beach, snorkeling to see the fishies, and diving into the freshest seafood. We'll also keep some surprises for you to explore every evening so you'll never get bored.


Our adventure continues in Quy Nhon city of Binh Dinh province. We'll hop on a train and admire the lovely views of Vietnam's picturesque coastline. Quy Nhon is a hidden pearl famous for its secluded beaches and amazing cuisine, so we're taking you to a wonderful resort right next to the beach. And for you to experience the true hospitality of Vietnam, we're also taking you to Aunt Tam's family house where you'll be treated like family. Get ready to feast on authentic home-cooked meals and go on motorbike trips with the locals.

We're coming towards the end of our tour but don't worry, the journey is not over yet! We'll either head back to Hanoi to prepare for your departure or make our way to the vibrant Saigon. We're all about flexibility so we'll customize a plan for your itinerary. Let's make the most out of the last day together and go out with a bang!
