Detailed itinerary

Day 1: Arrival in Hanoi

Our walking trip begins at Dong Xuan, the largest covered market in Hanoi. On the market's periphery, dozens of street vendors sell an astounding array of items, from live fish to exotic fruits and spices. Your professional English-speaking local guide will enlighten you on the complexities and traditions of Vietnamese cuisine, including information on the ingredients and historical contexts of popular northern dishes. Walking through the maze of frenetic alleyways that comprise the Old Quarter of Hanoi, we stop at a local café to sample the renowned Hanoi delicacy Banh Cuon. Observe in astonishment as the professional chefs demonstrate how to prepare this delicious dish on the street. Continuing into the Old Quarter, we go past street merchants and quiet residential streets where you can see local life that has changed little in the millennia since Hanoi was founded. The next destination is the Banh My 25 shop "French Baguette," a small food stall with a few characteristic tiny Vietnamese chairs on the sidewalk where we enjoy the fresh baguettes while studying the neighborhood. Continue to other food stalls on Ho Hoan Kiem Streets, where you can taste such as Egg coffee. Then, for dessert, we will venture down a small lane to partake in the local custom of feasting on fresh fruit served in a cup and covered with crushed ice — do not miss out on this delicacy!


Note: Your travel documents contain a Visa-on-Arrival letter (unless otherwise arranged). Please make sure to put this in your carry-on luggage. Customs needs to see your Visa-on-Arrival letter when you come into the country.

Examine the architectural and historical characteristics of the ultimate resting site of Uncle Ho. The One Pillar Pagoda, erected by King Ly Thai To in 1049 and situated one side of the Mausoleum, has become an iconic emblem for the people of Hanoi.

Continue your journey to the Temple of Literature (Quoc Tu Giam) - the earliest university built in Vietnam in 1070. Its gardens and well-preserved structures provide a tranquil peek into the academic past of Vietnam. Have lunch at a local restaurant.


After lunch, proceed to the Vietnam Museum of Ethnology, which preserves and displays the cultural artifacts of Vietnam's 54 ethnic groups. Then, we will take you by Hoan Kiem Lake to view the tranquil waters and the splendor of Ngoc Son temple.

Day 3: Hanoi - Halong Bay (B, L, D)


After breakfast and hotel check-out, your guide will pick you up and drive you through the magnificent farmlands of the Red River Delta to Halong Bay, where you will spend the night aboard. The limestone karsts and tropical islets rising from the bay's green waters provide an ethereal backdrop for your leisurely voyage.


You will be greeted aboard your boat, each having its own path, to begin your trip through the bay's hundreds of limestone islets and caves upon arrival.



After enjoying a delicious lunch onboard, you will sunbathe on the sundeck and take in the tranquillity of the bay.

Later, you will visit Sung Sot Cave, also known as "Grotte des Surprises," a natural gem concealed from view. Float tranquility amid spectacular limestone formations including tens of thousands of stalactites and stalagmites.


Continue to cruise. As you traverse the islands, you will encounter hidden bays, white-sand beaches, and floating settlements.

There is ample free time to enjoy activities onboard and in the Bay's breathtaking surroundings. Pamper yourself at the spa or take a dip in the green waters.

In the evening, you will sail to the overnight mooring location. During this stunning "blue hour," Halong Bay unveils its genuine, majestic grandeur. You have the option of attending the chef's culinary demonstration or watching the mesmerizing sunset from the top deck prior to a delectable supper.

The remainder of the evening will be unscheduled. You can watch a movie or go squid fishing with the crew before retiring to your accommodation for a pleasant night's sleep.

If time permits, we strongly suggest an additional night on board, which offers you much more time to rest and take in the breathtaking scenery. You will be able to travel farther into the Bay, where the scenery is more picturesque and less crowded.

Day 4: Halong Bay – Hanoi (B, L)


Tai Chi is a good way to start the day, as is common in the area. Join a "Local Specialist" for a morning class on the Junk boat's deck in a beautiful natural setting.

Your guide and driver will take you to a local restaurant for a traditional Khmer dinner.

Day 6: Siem Reap – Full-day Temple Exploration (B, L)

You will have a full day to look around Siem Reap today. You will feel like you've left the 20th century and gone back a thousand years to a time when life was simple and nature was amazing.



After an early breakfast, your private guide and driver will pick you up. Start your exploration of the temple of the legendary city of Ta Prohm Temple, which is best known for its huge vine roots that grow down the walls and have been doing so for a thousand years. This perfect building is hidden under a canopy and has been worn down by time, rain, and the jungle. It will make you feel like you've stepped into a movie set for a treasure hunt adventure. Your private tour guide will tell you stories and history that have been told orally for generations.


When you leave Ta Prohm, get on your bike and ride through the hidden rainforest trails. You'll get closer to the greenery and hear the sounds of nature as you make your way to the city of Angkor Thom through the grand South Gate. Here, you can see the last capital of the once-great Khmer Empire. The Bayon, with its 216 mysterious faces, is at the center of the city. Still, you'll be amazed by the view from the top of Baphuon, the huge temple mountain, which gives you a clear view of the ruins around you. You'll end the morning by looking at the intricate bas-reliefs on the Elephant Terrace and Terrace of the Leper King, and then you'll have lunch at the restaurant.



Get ready to see Angkor Wat, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. At this point, you've probably seen the towers above the treetops and the gates ahead of you. But now you'll finally be able to answer that question that's been on your mind for a few days.


You'll go into Angkor Wat with your guide and learn about its stories and amazing architecture, which have shocked archeologists and left them with more questions than answers. Some of the most detailed and longest stone carvings in the world are at Angkor Wat. This complex is four times the size of the Vatican City, making it the biggest religious site in the world. Spend the afternoon going on adventures through the many passages, levels, and rooms that used to hold one of the many ancient world treasures. It will be something you'll think about for a long time.

When the tour is over, you'll be taken back to your hotel and have the rest of the day to yourself. Chill out!
