Detailed itinerary

Day 1: Arriver Hanoi

Guest's own tickets for arrival flight

At Hanoi's Noi Bai International Airport, your private guide and driver will meet you OUTSIDE the arrivals lounge and take you to your hotel downtown in about 45 minutes.

Please look for your tour guide, who will be holding up a sign with your names on it.

(Even though every effort is made to have your room ready when you arrive, check-in isn't until 2:00 pm to follow the hotel policy, and your room might not be ready before then. Your tour guide will give you more information about your stay, and you can ask any questions you have.)

In the late afternoon, you go on a culinary adventure to the Old Quarter to try some street food. It's a great chance to try all those strange and interesting foods you've seen but didn't know what they were. A good thing about this short trip is the local beer. Find an empty seat and do what the locals do: pull up a stool and have a drink while watching the world go by at Bia Hoi Corner.

As you walk through the narrow streets of the old quarter, your guide will point out a variety of tasty noodles, bread, and snacks. Don't forget to bring a camera so you can take some beautiful pictures of the nightlife in the area. Downtown Vietnam is a great place to not only walk but also eat street food. End the night with dessert from Hanoi’s best-known ice cream parlor before heading back to your hotel.

Day 2: Hanoi – Halong Bay

Breakfast is the best way to start the day, so make it enjoyable and nutritious.

Take 15 to 20 minutes to relax before getting ready for one of your life's greatest adventures.

At 12:30, we will arrive at the harbor, where you can board the boat and begin your voyage with our amiable, knowledgeable, and skilled crew.

The lunch will be served to you as the boat travels on to our destination, passing by an almost unlimited number of islands and islets. Unquestionably a genuinely wonderful encounter.

You can head to the upper deck after your excellent meal to take in Halong Bay's grandeur in all of its natural, pure, magical, and beautiful manifestations.

Are you all set to join the activity? Let's kayak for an hour around the region of the floating community. If you don't like kayaking, don't worry, you can also swim.

When the time is up, you'll head back to the boat for a fun sundown party on the sundeck. Here, you may mingle with other tourists while listening to relaxing music and taking in the breathtaking splendor of Halong Bay.

After then, the boat will continue crashing into numerous islands and islets, giving you a good perspective of Halong Bay's breathtaking splendor. Vietnam is the only country in the world where such a site exists!

This extraordinary journey will take you inside Hanoi's real-life museums, providing you with a deep understanding of the city's culture and people. Explore Hanoi's many districts, major sights, local markets, and stunning urban farmland on an island with the help of your knowledgeable guides (who will also serve as your drivers). Your guides will take you to some of Hanoi's best-kept secrets and to the best street food vendors in the city. Motorbike trip? It may sound dangerous, but rest assured that your drivers are polite, kind, and well-trained professionals who will keep you safe at all times.

Note: If you and your family aren't into riding motorcycles, you may always go for an open-air Jeep from the period of war instead.

In the morning, you will be picked up from the hotel lobby by your guides (who will also be driving), and following a short safety lecture, they will ride as pillion passengers on Russian-made 150cc bikes from 1952. While you ride through the city, your guides will point out interesting landmarks and tell you all about their hometown.

You'll need to navigate a maze of narrow, winding streets to reach the black market, your first stop. Learn about the welcoming culture of the area's inhabitants.

Keep whizzing through the alleys and side streets. You're going to a local resident's residence to meet an elderly lady and listen to her life tales.

Walk to a squished section of houses, where the train track serves as a divider between the two sides of the road. Your tour guides have arranged for you to be here at precisely the right time to view a Reunification Express train. This is a picture-perfect opportunity.

On the way back to the city, your driver will take you by the beautiful colonial buildings of the French Quarter. The French-style villas, the Vietnam History Museum, the Metropole Legend Hotel, and the Opera House will all pass before your eyes.

Explore the narrow lanes and winding alleys of Hanoi's Old Quarter (opposite the French Quarter).

The best of Hanoi's cuisine, from family heirlooms and secret recipe dishes to local specialties and specialties, may be tasted in a variety of authentic restaurants and street food vendors.

Leave the city behind and head toward the beautiful Long Bien Bridge, which was built over a century ago by the French to span the Red River.

Banana Island, or Bai Giua, is a 24-hectare island in the middle of the Red River that may be reached by a bridge. A steel stairway descends from the middle of the bridge to an island where a lush forest of banana, papaya, and guava trees is punctuated by the cloudy white flowers of wild reeds. Many fishermen have found safe haven on the island that was produced by warp because of the river's plentiful water. There are no highways in the area, only dirt tracks that wind around the various gardens and trees. It's a far cry from the bustling city life you left behind.

The trip will end with a visit to a secret cafe for a cup of egg coffee you won't want to miss.

At about noon, your guides will return you to your hotel, where you can say your goodbyes. The short city tour has come to a close.

Detailed Useful Information

Visas and Entry Requirements

All countries require a valid passport (with a minimum of 6 months validity). For the most up-to-date visa requirements, call your local embassy or consulate or talk with us. It is up to you to make sure that you have the right travel documents. Whether or not you need a visa for your trip depends on where you come from and where you are going. We try to keep the information below as up-to-date as we can, but rules do change, and sometimes without notice. Even though we give you the following information in good faith, it is very important that you check it for yourself and know that you are in charge of your own visa needs.


Let's use our guide to make it easy to get a Vietnam visa. Here


VIETNAM: If you need a visa for Vietnam, you need to get one before your trip. You can't get one immediately when you get there because it takes processing time. If you are going to enter Vietnam through a land border, you will need to apply for a regular Vietnam visa. The Vietnam E-Visa is not accepted at many of the land borders we cross.

What to Take

What you need to bring depends on the trip you choose and the countries or regions you plan to visit. Since you have to carry your own bags, we suggest that you pack as little as possible. As a general rule, we try to make sure you don't have to walk with your bags for more than 15 to 20 minutes. This is why we suggest keeping the weight of your bags between 10-15kg/22-30lb. On Amazing trips, you shouldn't bring a suitcase. Most travelers bring a small to medium-sized backpack or rolling bag (please, no XXL ones!) because they need to fit under the beds on sleeper trains. You will also need a day pack or bag to carry water, cameras, and other electronics like iPods and cell phones.


Some of our hotels have laundry rooms that cost extra. There will be times when you want to or have to do your own laundry, so we recommend that you bring soap that doesn't harm the environment and doesn't build up in the water.

Money Exchange

Since currency exchange rates in Asia change often, you should check www.xe.com every day for the most up-to-date rates. There are a lot of ATMs that take both Visa and Mastercard, but most of them are only in big cities. Most transactions are done with US dollars, and we recommend that you bring small unmarked notes in USD. Some shops will use credit cards, but there may be a 2-4% fee for the transaction.
