Vietnam Culture Journey in 9 days: This is a wonderful culture journey that allows you to get a better glimpse of both North and South Vietnam where you will discover the Northern gem of the country starting from Hanoi to Halong Bay, then flying to Saigon for the Southern gem of the country.

Day 1: HANOI ARRIVAL

Upon arrival, our guide will be holding a sign with your name and welcome you at Noi Bai International Airport for transfer to Hanoi’s Old Quarter and check in at the hotel. The rest of the day, you can stroll around the Old Town to get used to the city or just relax to recover from the jet lag. Overnight stay in Hanoi.

Day 2: HANOI CITY TOUR (B/L)

Our guide and driver will meet you in the hotel lobby at 08:00 AM after breakfast for the full day to explore Vietnam’s charming capital. With its wide tree-lined boulevards, French colonial architecture, peaceful lakes and ancient oriental pagodas, Hanoi is an eclectic mix that offers something for everyone. Your city tour will take you to Hanoi’s key sites: the Ho Chi Minh Complex (Ho Chi Minh’s Mausoleum and stilt house); the Presidential Palace; the nearby One Pillar Pagoda; the Temple of Literature; West Lake; the sedate Tran Quoc Pagoda & Quan Thanh Temple; and one of the city’s museums (a choice between the History Museum and the Ethnology Museum). End of the day you can enjoy a traditional Water Puppet Performance – a unique Vietnamese art form hailing from Southeast Asia’s wet-rice culture. Overnight stay in Hanoi.

Day 3: HANOI – HALONG BAY (B/L/D)

Our guide and shuttle bus will pick you up at the hotel lobby to start the journey East to Halong Bay, through picturesque rice-farming villages of the Red River Delta, where we see everyday Vietnamese village life. On arrival, we board a beautiful traditional junk and spend a full day and night cruising the bay’s 3000 magnificent limestone islets. In the evening when the boat is anchored in the middle of the stunning lagoon, we enjoy a wonderful seafood meal and later there is opportunity for an evening swim from the side of the boat. Spend the night on the luxurious boat.
