Offering steaming bowls of spicy Pho, the lush green rice fields of the Mekong Delta, and the emerald waters of Ha Long Bay, Vietnam is the gift that just keeps on giving. That’s why we’ve created Vietnam Experience, our premium 15 day trip that will take you from the north to the south in style. This trip will have you discovering bustling Hanoi by rickshaw, trekking the rolling green mountains of Sapa, sailing through the magical Ha Long Bay, gorging on the world’s best street food, getting charmed by Hoi An, living like a local in the Mekong, exploring the Cu Chi Tunnels, and treating yourself at rooftop bars in Ho Chi Minh City, all whilst staying in some seriously nice accommodation. Oh, and did we mention that we’re including loads of activities, an experienced group leader from the moment you land, and an instant crew of new mates? The trip of a lifetime just got even better!

Itinerary

HANOI

Landing in Hanoi, we’ll meet you at the airport and take you to your boutique hotel in the heart of the old town. Meet up with your travel crew and get excited for the adventures to come.

HANOI

We’ll jump straight into the hustle of Hanoi today with a walking and rickshaw tour of the city. Tasty street food will keep us going as we soak in the intoxicating energy of the capital, full of rustic colonial buildings and themed trading streets. This evening we’ll head out for dinner and a drink to see what Hanoi has to offer after dark.

TA VAN VILLAGE (SAPA)

From Hanoi to the hills, this morning we’ll take a VIP limousine bus to uncover dazzling scenery in northern Vietnam. We’ll meet locals from different ethnic groups before heading up the Muong Hoa Valley on a short trek. Passing villages oozing with culture, we’ll stay overnight with a local family in Ta Van Village. To wrap up the day we’ll learn more about local customs and ways of life over a traditional dinner, washing it all down with a little rice wine.

SAPA

Today is all about enjoying the post-card perfect landscapes and breathing fresh mountain air as we trek through terraced hills and waterfalls. This afternoon a quick drive takes us back to Sapa, where we will check in to our beautiful mountain-side hotel and kick up our feet for a well-earned rest in peaceful surroundings.

SAPA

This morning enjoy the hotel and explore Sapa at your own pace, with the option of taking the cable car up Fan Si Pan Peak. With a summit over 3100m, this viewpoint known as the roof of Indochina boasts extravagant views of the mountainous landscape. This evening we’ll board an overnight train for a unique but comfortable trip back to Hanoi.

HA LONG BAY

From Hanoi we’ll travel to Ha Long Bay to board the luxurious boat that’ll be our home for the night. Famous for emerald waters, limestone islands, magical caves, and thick rainforests, we’ll see this world heritage site up close as we kayak, swim, and laze on the sundeck. In the evening enjoy a sunset from the deck and tuck into a fresh dinner before some drinks. It doesn’t get much better than this!

NINH BINH

Today the rice paddies and vast mountains of Ninh Binh await. We'll make the most of our serene surroundings as we cosy up in traditional bungalows by the river at a local homestay. We’ll hop on two wheels to weave through rice paddies before taking a local rowboat through a network of rivers and caves. A hike up to Dragon Mountain viewpoint will reward us with epic views!

HOI AN

An internal flight will take us to the charming and historical Hoi An. Go shopping, stroll the alleys, or even visit a local tailor to get a custom suit or dress made before our night out. The next day local fisherman will teach us the art of crab fishing. We’ll then take part in a hands-on cooking class to become masters of all things Vietnamese cuisine! The afternoon is yours to chill by the pool or get a massage. This evening we’ll treat ourselves to a Bamboo show, a cultural experience like no other.

HOI AN

Today we take a short bicycle ride through idyllic fields to the coast for a chilled beach day. If we’re lucky we’ll be treated to a colourful sunset whilst having dinner and drinks by the sea.

HO CHI MINH CITY

Today we catch our second flight to Ho Chi Minh City - one of Asia’s most exhilarating hubs. We’ll head straight out onto the streets for some dinner, then up to a rooftop bar for drinks overlooking Ho Chi Minh’s modern skyline.

MEKONG DELTA

Today we head to the lush beauty of the Mekong Delta for a special overnight experience. We’ll get a serious culture fix as we explore a more authentic Vietnam, seeing how locals live and work on the river and checking in to a family-run homestay for the evening.

HO CHI MINH CITY

At the Cu Chi tunnels, we’ll learn how this hand-dug underground network played a crucial role in the Vietnam War, providing supply routes, hideouts, and living quarters for soldiers. Arriving back into Ho Chi Minh City, we’ll dress sharp for our farewell dinner and party this evening.

HO CHI MINH CITY

Your unforgettable 15 day adventure comes to an end. Those flying home will make their way to the airport, or keep living the dream and extend your stay in Vietnam or South East Asia with help from your group leader.

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes. Lots of people on our trips are travelling solo. But by doing our trip you’ll instantly be part of a group, so it’s a great way to meet others and make friends! Most of our accommodation is twin or triple share, so we will put you in a room with someone of the same gender.

You can start chatting to people in your group and other travellers before you leave. Just go to our Facebook page, click on ‘Groups’ and choose your country.

It’s always a good time to go travelling in Vietnam. Most months of the year you will experience both sunshine and possibly some rain. It’s usually quite hot and humid most of the time, but it can occasionally get cold, especially in the north of Vietnam between November and February, so it’s always best to bring a couple of warm layers with your summer clothing.

All your activities, accommodation, transport and some meals are included with Vietnam Experience, so you’ll just need money for some meals, drinks, shopping and any onward travel. We recommend you bring at least £400 / $700 spending money.

It’s best to take a Visa or Master Card debit, credit or travel money card. There are ATM’s available throughout Vietnam so it’s easy to get access to cash. Some places accept credit card but not all.

There are no compulsory vaccinations for any of our destinations and all areas we travel to are very low risk. But if you’re unsure or need advice we recommend visiting your local GP.

Most accommodations we stay at have free Wi-Fi available apart from the overnight boat and train. The network quality is often lower than you’re used to but you can generally connect and do basic stuff.

We always recommend travelling with a backpack and packing light! 10-20kgs of stuff should be plenty. It’s generally quite hot in Vietnam so dragging around a huge suitcase is not much fun. There is luggage storage at the airport or at some accommodations if needed.

Don’t drink tap water in Vietnam, stick to boiled or treated water. Don’t worry about ice as it is made using purified water. INTRO Travel has installed refillable water stations at almost all of our overnight stops so you will always have clean water and don’t need to buy plastic water bottles. You can also buy a reusable INTRO water bottle!
