Essential Vietnam 9 days
[updated 2024]

This is an excellent value private tour that covers all the principal sites of Vietnam in just 9 days. We particularly love the feature of a 3-night stay in Hoi An, a city that was once voted as the 'best city on earth' by readers of Wanderlust magazine UK.

Your experiences include:

  • Explore the vibrant streets of Hanoi on a charming cyclo tour.
  • Kayak and spend a memorable night in the breathtaking Ha Long Bay.
  • Discover the ancient town of Hoi An and its captivating history.
  • Indulge in a mouthwatering street food tour, including the famous Vietnamese Banh Mi.
  • Visit the iconic Reunification Palace in Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City).
  • Cruise through the picturesque Mekong Delta on the charming Cai Be Princess Sampan..

If you want, you can add a few nights at the beautiful island of Phu Quoc (1h flight from Ho Chi Minh city) at the end. We recommend this option if you travel between November - April when Phu Quoc is at its best weather wise. Alternatively, you can also fly to Siem Reap (1h10m flight from Ho Chi Minh city) and spend a few days exploring the majestic temples of Angkor.

The tour has been designed for you to experience Vietnam at a moderate pace. This is just a suggested itinerary and can totally be tweaked to suit your style and need.
