About This Trip

No matter how many times you visit a country, there is always another side to see and we pride ourselves in uncovering those hidden spots, those little nuggets of beauty that elevate your trip to legendary level. With our Unique Vietnam Explorer, we have knocked it out of the park. 

 

You will spend your first three nights luxuriating in Hanoi, the capital of Vietnam. Packed with an incredible array of museums, temples, and history, you will never be short of something dazzling to explore in Hanoi. However, this is a city that is definitely more than the sum of its parts. The ordered chaos of a million scooters, the sensory overload provided by wondrous street food, and the sense of peace as locals practice tai-chi in the early morning mist in the local park. Hanoi has nothing to hide, a city where life is lived out on the streets in blissful harmony. 

 

From Hanoi, you will travel down to the UNESCO World Heritage Halong Bay. It may only be three hours from Hanoi, but setting sail into this otherworldly bay feels like you have traveled across the universe. Giant limestone towers erupt from the milky turquoise waters, each with their own unique grottoes, carved by warm winds over millennia. Then at the end of each day, the colours of the sea and sky merge and redefine in a riot of pastel as the sun begins to set, which you’ll get to enjoy from the deck of your luxurious cruiser.   

 

Your final stop on this discovery trip is to the idyllic paradise of Mai Chau. This is a region largely untouched by time, where natural beauty exists in abundance amongst the wild lines of the rice paddies. By a stunning lilly-filled lake sit your unique luxury glamping pods where you can relax and drink in the tranquility of this unspoiled corner of the world.

Other Info
highlights

We always like to bring as many different elements to our trips as possible, to show the contrasts and hidden treasures that make up the spaces you visit. This trip is no exception. We want to immerse you in luxury throughout this trip, but put you in the heart of some of the greatest spots that Vietnam has to offer. 

 

Hanoi is a thriving city, one whose relentlessness is to be admired. The old city is one of the most relaxing and delightful places in the whole country, a place where you can find grandfathers playing chess in the park, backed by whole neighborhoods of people practicing tai chi. Its history is rich, but understated, its museums are world-class and its food is beyond reckoning. This could be the greatest street food in the world! Be prepared!

 

In Halong Bay, your stunning cruise ship merges hospitality with traditional flare as you explore the wonders of this UNESCO site. Explore pearl farms, floating villages, and the incredible limestone islands while living in ultimate luxury. Then we contrast this nautical beauty with the landlocked magnificence of Mai Chau. This untouched corner of the country is a marvel of natural wonder. Dark hills define the skyline, while lush jungle, terraced paddy fields, and tranquil lakes surround your glamping pods, where every luxury is afforded you.


location

Your trip begins in Hanoi, where you will make your own way to your centrally located hotel. After three nights in Hanoi, we will transfer you down to Halong Bay where you will board the L’Azalée deluxe cruise for two nights on Halong Bay. Then you will be transferred to your glamping experience under the stars in tranquil Mai Chau for one night of natural beauty. Then we will collect you and return you to Hanoi to meet your onward connection.
