The Hanoi Itinerary is a classic tour, includes the two most important travel highlights of North Vietnam. You begin the holiday with a visit to Hanoi, an imagine city where the exotic chic of old Asia blends with the dynamic face of new Asia, where the medieval and modern co-exist. Then keep discovering North Vietnam with Halong bay. Majestic and mysterious, inspiring and imperious: words alone cannot do justice to the natural wonder that is Ha long Bay. Imagine 3000 or more incredible islands rising from the emerald waters of the Gulf of Tonkin and you have a vision of breathtaking beauty.
DAY 1: ARRIVE HANOI
Picked up at Hanoi airport and brought to hotel in town.
DAY 2: HANOI CITY TOUR
Discover the deep roots of Vietnamese culture through visits to pagodas, historic sites and an architecture museum as the History Museum, Hanoi’s Ethnology Museum and its fascinating exhibitions about the diverse hill tribes in Vietnam. Enjoy a short cyclo excursion through the bustling old quarter streets named after the specific goods once offered for sales at these places. The Old Quarter is Hanoi’s historic heart, the streets are narrow and congested, and crossing the road is an art form, but remember to look up as well as down, as there is some elegant old architecture in and among the chaos.
DAY 3 & 4: HALONG BAY 2 DAY CRUISE TOUR
Ha Long Bay – one of the world’s natural wonders and is the most beautiful tourist destination of Vietnam. Ha Long Bay features more than one thousand awesome limestone karsts and islands of various sizes and shapes along the 120-km coastline of Bai Chay Beach. These tiny islands are dotted with beaches and grottoes created by wind and waves, and have sparsely forested slopes ringing with bird song, cruise through the sculpted limestone islands of Halong Bay on a private junk; photograph life in a floating fishing village.
