Itinerary

  • Day 1-2   (Hanoi)

    A bustling yet beautiful city, Hanoi is the jewelled capital of Vietnam.  The history is rich here and the area we stay in has loads of places to fill our bellies with local food and our cups with local beer. :)

    The following days we will visit revolutionary museums, ancient pagodas, art shops, famous water-puppet shows, and more. With free time to visit Ho Chi Minh's mausoleum.

  • Day 3   (Halong Bay)

    Hop on a private bus to the seaside. Board our private Free & Easy Chinese junk-style ship equipped with a bar, large sun-deck, dining space, 2 person cabins with bathrooms, cooks, full crew, and music!

    Cruise the bay between 3000+ looming, limestone isles rising from the emerald waters. The scenery is a true masterpiece of nature. Sleep overnight on the boat.

    After returning from the night spent on Halong Bay we will take private minibus transfer to Hanoi to take a night train down south.

  • Day 4-8   (Phong Nha)

    From the train station we take a short 45-minute private minibus ride to the glorious Phong Nha.  We will spend the next three days soaking in the rural jungle landscape as we explore the caves, partake in some adrenaline-fuelled adventures, and take in the stunning views.  This place is always a surprise favourite on the trip!

  • Day 9-10   (Dong Hoi)

    It's a 45 minute minibus drive to this quiet coastal city with its long white sandy beaches. Enjoy the sunsets over the ocean from your accommodation: we stay a mere 50 meters from the beach!

    The water is great for SUP, chilling, and floating the day away. Spend your days visiting the sand dunes, enjoying the beach, or soaking in the joy of doing nothing in an truly amazing atmosphere.
