Offering steaming bowls of spicy Pho, lush green rice fields, and the emerald green waters of Halong Bay, Vietnam is the gift that just keeps on giving, and we couldn’t love it any more. That’s why we created Vietnam Intro, a 12 day adventure that takes you from north to south, including Hanoi, Ha Long Bay, Ho Chi Minh City and the Mekong Delta. Oh, and did we mention you’ll be doing all this with a knowledgeable Group Leader, plus 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 hostel 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 and bustle of Hanoi today with a walking and rickshaw tour of the city. Soak in daily life in the chaotic capital and fill up on spicy spring rolls and tasty street food. This evening we’ll be heading out for dinner and drinks to see what Hanoi has to offer after dark.

HA LONG BAY

From Hanoi we’ll travel to Ha Long Bay, where we’ll cruise the emerald green waters surrounded by limestone mountains, feeling like we’re not quite on this planet. The secret caves and coves will prove too much to resist, so we’ll jump into kayaks to explore further before settling down for the evening on our overnight boat complete with hot tub and bar.

HA LONG BAY

Waking up to gorgeous Ha Long Bay shimmering in the sunshine, you’ll be glad to know you’ve got one more night in this watery paradise. We’ll continue our boat journey until we arrive at our very own private island, our home for the night.

NINH BINH

The rice paddies and vast limestone mountains of Ninh Binh await us, where we’ll be staying at a local homestay in traditional bungalows right by the river. We’ll take to two wheels to weave through the rice paddies before taking a local row boat through the network of rivers and caves. We’ll finish our time here with a sunset hike to the Dragon Mountain viewpoint.

HOI AN

Beautiful, historical Hoi An will win you over. We’ll check in to our hotel, then this afternoon you’ll have time to explore, go shopping, or perhaps visit a local tailor to get a custom suit or dress made. Local fishermen will be our guides today teaching 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.

HO CHI MINH CITY

Taking to the skies, we’ll head south to the bustling city of Ho Chi Minh. The rest of the day will be yours to explore as you wish.

MEKONG DELTA

The Mekong is nothing if not impressive, creating vast swathes of lush green land as far as the eye can see. We’ll be seeing how locals live and work on the river, visit local villages, and stay tonight in a local homestay.

HO CHI MINH CITY

The Cu Chi Tunnels are on the agenda for today. This network of hand dug underground tunnels played a crucial role in the Vietnam War, providing supply routes, hideouts and living quarters for soldiers. Arriving back into Ho Chi Minh City in the afternoon, we’ll be dressing sharp for our farewell dinner and party this evening.

HO CHI MINH CITY

Your unforgettable 12 day adventure will come to an end today. 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 our help and the new friends you’ve made.

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 Intro, so you’ll just need money for some meals, drinks, shopping and any onward travel. We recommend you bring at least £300 / $500 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.

All accommodations apart from the overnight boat, private island stay and overnight train have free Wi-Fi available. Vietnam’s 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!
