An ever increasingly popular destination for travellers in southeast Asia, Vietnam is a one stop shop for culture, adventure, and natural beauty.
Explore Vietnam On A Group Adventure Tour
From the bustling capital of Hanoi to the banks of the Mekong River there is so much to see and do that you’ll never want to leave.
Hanoi is everything you’d expect from a southeast Asian city with scooters zipping around, horns tooting, an abundance of markets, farmers karting their wares around and food stalls galore! You can take in the sites of the Ancient Quarter, and visit the stunning Hoan Kiem Lake. If you’re up early enough you may even see the locals practicing Tai Chi on the banks of the Lake – making for a pleasant and calming sight.
The real adventure, however starts outside of Hanoi at the famous Halong Bay. An awe-inspiring natural wonder of the world, you can explore the Bay by traditional Junk boat as you meander around the many islets, whilst taking in the panoramic views.
At Hoi An you can really experience the Vietnamese way of life. A few must do’s whilst visiting Hoi An include getting tailor made clothes, taking a cooking course and visit the stunning beaches. Or experience Hoi An and the surrounding traditional villages by bicycle to really get a great perspective of the local way of life.
A world apart from the traditional villages is Ho Chi Minh City. The vibrant business district of Vietnam is where you’ll see modern skyscrapers juxtaposed with traditional Vietnamese buildings which is certainly something you don’t see every day!
Another must see whilst visiting Vietnam is a trip to the Mekong Delta. The Mekong Delta is an epic maze of rivers, swamps and islands that can be found in Southern Vietnam – close to Ho Chi Minh City. It’s here that you’ll find the famous, traditional floating markets, Khmer pagodas and rice paddy fields. The Mekong Delta is so vast that boats are the main mode of transportation when it comes to navigating the region.
A country that blends fantastic cuisine with an ancient culture and awe-inspiring natural beauty, you can explore Vietnam with Encounters Travel’s 7, 8, or 11 day tours.
