Your Example Itinerary
Fly from the UK to Hanoi.
Arrive into Hanoi, Vietnam’s capital, and meet the rest of your group and your leader at the KOTO restaurant, a social enterprise which trains young Vietnamese people up with new skills. You’ll have a full day to explore the city, joining your guide for a tour pointing out the French colonial architecture, and visiting the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum and the Imperial Citadel of Thang Long. Later, in the Old Quarter, you’ll meet with a local family to see how to make traditional papier-mâché masks, before having a go at making your own. Finish the day with a local street food tour.
3* The Chi boutique
Get your camera ready for the lush countryside of northern Vietnam, which you will pass through on your way to Halong Bay. There you will hop on board a traditional paddle steamer and sail to the Sung Sot Grotto, where there are opportunities to kayak and swim, before watching a Vietnamese cookery demonstration and sampling some canapes. After a tasty dinner, you’ll watch Indochine on the ship’s sundeck and then spend the night out on the water.

You’ll have a full day to explore the quaint streets and waterways of this delightful town, with a free morning followed by an afternoon walking tour and a street food tour, where you’ll have the chance to make and sample the local dumplings and Vietnamese baguettes. In the evening, dine by lantern light at the beautiful Dao Tien River Restaurant.
