    The highlight of this trip was defo the night on the ship in Ha Long Bay. The rest of itinerary was fun especially the beautiful Vietnamese countryside. I don’t think there was a single dull day. And every fun thing included was a brill bonus.

Frequently Asked Questions

    • When and where does the tour end?

      The tour will end in the afternoon on the last day of the tour at Ho Chi Minh City airport. The tour operator recommends adding an extra night in Ho Chi Minh and flying out on day 10 - that way you'll get a little more time exploring this amazing city!

    • What are the optional excursions?

      This tour does not offer any optional excursions, as the itinerary is already packed with inclusions!

    • Is there a hotel list available?

      This is a list of hotels that they typically stay at (based on availability), but please be advised that they are subject to change until 4-6 weeks before the departure date:

      Night on a private Island - Ha Long Bay
      Local Homestay - Nin Binh
      Overnight train
      Thanh Binh Hotel 2 - Hoi An

      Hopefully, this list will give you a better idea of what kind of accommodation you can expect while on tour.

    • Are flights included?

      International flights to and from the tour are not included in the tour price, however, the internal flight from Hoi An to Ho Chi Minh City on day 9 is included.
      As we are tour booking specialists we are unable to book or advise on airfares however we do have a handy link powered by Skyscanner to book your own flights -

    • When and where does the tour start?

      On Day 1 of the tour, you will be picked up from the airport and taken to Cocoon Inn in Hanoi. You'll then have plenty of time to recover from your long flight, chill out and meet everyone in your group. You can arrive anytime on Day 1 as it is an arrivals day.

      Please be advised that the meeting point is subject to change until your final documents are released.

    • Can you arrange airport transfers?

      An airport arrival transfer is included in the tour price. You can book a departure transfer for an additional cost once you have a confirmed booking.

    • Do I need a visa?

      As a tour booking website, TourRadar cannot organise visas for you on your behalf as the visa requirements are regularly being updated and vary for the nationality of one traveller to the next. It is for this reason that we recommend checking with your local embassy or consulate website for the latest up to date information.

    • I'm a solo traveller, is there a single supplement?

      Unfortunately, we are unable to offer a single private room on this tour. The majority of the accommodation along the tour is twin/triple share.
