    Program description

    Upon arrival at Suvarnabhumi Airport (BKK) in Bangkok, Thailand, you'll be met by your friendly English-speaking guide holding a sign with your name clearly displayed for welcome. Check-in at the hotel will be arranged as soon as possible, aiming for immediate access to your room if available. Standard hotel check-in time is usually 2:00 PM, but the hotel will do their best to accommodate you upon arrival.  With the afternoon free, you can use the provided map to embark on your own adventure! Explore the vibrant city at your own pace, soaking up the sights, sounds, and aromas that make Bangkok unique.  

    In the evening, relax and recharge at your comfortable hotel, ready for the exciting experiences that await you tomorrow.

    After breakfast, embark on a long-tail boat and begin your journey along the Chao Phraya River (which translates to "river of kings") to visit three of Thailand's oldest temples. Cruise through the bustling inner canals of Thonburi coast to enjoy a fantastic glimpse into the waterfront lives of locals. Make a stop at the National Museum of Royal Barges and Wat Arun (the Temple of Dawn), adorned with glazed mosaics. Next, visit Wat Traimit Temple, known for its Golden Buddha. Continue to explore the Royal Palace, founded in 1782 by King Rama I.

    The palace's walls protect an area of 259 hectares. Then, discover Wat Phra Kaew (or the Temple of the Emerald Buddha), which is actually the Royal Chapel of the Grand Palace, housing the famous and revered Emerald Buddha statue, Thailand's most iconic. Move on to Wat Pho Temple and its impressive Reclining Buddha, the largest in Thailand. Surrounding the temple are Chinese statues depicting royal guards in various postures. 
    Return to the hotel for a well-deserved rest.

    Depart in the morning towards the west of Bangkok to visit the Maeklong market, set up on the train tracks near the railway terminal. Walk along the rails to explore the vibrant market and witness how quickly the vendors fold their stalls for the scheduled train passage around 8:30 am (train times are not fixed).

    Arrive at the small Samut Songkhran market, the starting point for a beautiful journey aboard a canoe along the Grand Canal and then through smaller canals into the still authentic depths of Asia, practically at the outskirts of Bangkok. The journey lasts about an hour and ends in the heart of the Damnoen Saduak floating market, a picturesque place near Bangkok.

    Explore this traditional and bustling market filled with vendors selling all kinds of products: food, flowers, plants, and animals. Return to Bangkok and free time to relax. 

    Back in Bangkok, the rest of the day is yours to unwind.

    After breakfast, enjoy some leisure time before heading to the airport for your flight to Hanoi. Upon arrival, your English-speaking guide will be there to welcome you and transfer you to your hotel.

    And then take some time to relax and soak in the atmosphere of Vietnam's capital city.

    After breakfast, begin the discovery of Hanoi's most notable cultural sites and historical monuments, including Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum, the stilt house, One Pillar Pagoda, and the Temple of Literature - the country's first university founded in 1070. Lunch at a local restaurant.

    In the afternoon, continue with a cyclo ride through the Old Quarter of Hanoi, known for its "36 streets," named after the products traditionally sold there, such as Paper Street, Sugar Street, Silver Street, etc. Conclude the tour with a visit to Ngoc Son Temple, The Huc Bridge, and Hoan Kiem Lake (Lake of the Restored Sword). In the late afternoon, attend a Water Puppet Show at the Thang Long Theater.

    Return to the hotel and take a rest.

    Departure towards Ninh Binh – land of limestone rocks, sugarloaf mountains, and rice fields flooded by rivers and lakes year-round. After a 2-hour drive, we arrive in the province of Ninh Binh. Board a boat on the Ngo Dong River for a ride through Tam Coc, also known as the "Halong Bay on land." This winding river meanders through rice fields, sugarloaf mountains, and passes beneath three caves at the foot of limestone peaks.

    Next, we visit Mua Cave (Dancing Cave), climbing 486 stone steps to the top. This bell-shaped mountain offers a panoramic view of the Tam Coc region.

    Finally, we'll visit Hoa Lu – once the ancient capital of Dai Co Viet (Vietnam's former name), with remnants of temples from the Dinh and Le dynasties.

    Depart by road to Halong, Vietnam's most beautiful bay, one of Asia's most magical landscapes, crossing the prestigious scenery of waterlogged rice paddies. Upon arrival at the boat, embark on a cruise to explore Halong Bay, declared a UNESCO Natural Heritage Site. Welcome by the crew and set off for a magnificent cruise through the bay. Overnight on board.

    • Marvel at the picturesque islands and islets with various forms (veil, dog, rooster, incense...).
    • Visit splendid caves in Halong Bay, including Thien Canh Son, home to stalagmites and stalactites dating back thousands of years.
    • Continue the cruise to Cap La, kayak, and swim in the sublime waters of the bay (weather permitting).
    • Late afternoon, leisure on the upper deck of the junk.
    • Participate in an onboard cooking demonstration, preparing nem or spring rolls.
    • You will then have a delectable lunch and dinner on board.

    Note: Transfer by SHUTTLE BUS without a guide. The itinerary depends on each cruise and may change without notice due to weather conditions.

    Wake up at dawn to enjoy a unique moment of splendor: the first rays of sunlight emerging from the thousands of sugarloaf mountains in the bay and participate in a Tai Chi session on the terrace.

    Tai chi is an internal martial art practiced for self-defense and health.

    Boat ride or kayak to discover the fishing village of Vung Vieng, with a possible encounter with local residents.

    Lunch on the junk, then disembark and return to Hanoi. At the appointed time, transfer to the airport for your flight to Danang. Upon arrival, you will be greeted by your English-speaking guide at the airport and transfer to the hotel in Hoi An (40 minutes) for check-in.

    Have a good night in Hoi An.

    It's your free day to relax in Hoi An. You can choose to explore the old town of Hoi An (on your own) with: Phuc Kien Shrine dedicated to the protective goddess of fishermen and sailors; Phuc Thanh Pagoda, the oldest in Hoi An (1454); the Japanese Covered Bridge built in 1593; the old alleys, museums, and ancient wooden houses dating back hundreds of years.

    Relaxation on the beautiful beaches of the East Sea (Cua Dai, An Bang...) or a stroll through the surrounding countryside where there are several traditional villages (vegetables, ceramics, woodworking...).

     Return to the hotel for the night in Hoi An.

    Following breakfast, we'll embark on a scenic road journey to Hue, the former imperial capital of Vietnam.

    Our route will take us through the Hai Van Pass, famously known as the "Pass of Ocean Clouds," offering breathtaking views of the surrounding landscape. Along the way, we'll make a stop at the picturesque Lang Co Beach for a photo opportunity. 
    Our journey will also include a visit to the unique roadside cemeteries, often referred to as "Ghost Villages," featuring tomb-castles sculpted in various Asian architectural styles. Upon arrival in Hue, we'll transfer to the hotel for check-in, subject to availability. Later in the afternoon, we'll embark on a city tour, beginning with a visit to the Imperial Citadel, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, where the Nguyen Dynasty once ruled from 1802 to 1945. We'll also explore the Royal Museum and browse the vibrant Dong Ba Market. 
    After our tour, we'll return to the hotel for an overnight stay in Hue.

    After breakfast, we'll embark on a boat trip along the Perfume River to visit Thien Mu Pagoda, an iconic symbol of Hue. Alternatively, we may visit the serene Tu Hieu Pagoda, known for its tranquil ambiance and historical significance. Depending on the timing, we may have the opportunity to witness a prayer session conducted by the resident monks. 
    Our tour will also include a visit to the Tomb of Emperor Tu Duc, renowned for its elegant architecture and tranquil surroundings. We'll then stop at Thuy Xuan Village, famous for its traditional incense-making techniques, before visiting the royal tomb of Emperor Khai Dinh, showcasing a fusion of Vietnamese and European architectural styles. In the afternoon, we'll transfer to the airport for our flight to Ho Chi Minh City. 
    Upon arrival, we'll be greeted by our Spanish-speaking guide and transferred to the hotel for check-in. The remainder of the day will be free for leisure, allowing us to explore the vibrant city at our own pace. 
    Overnight stay in Ho Chi Minh City.

    Our day will commence with a guided tour of Ho Chi Minh City, still affectionately referred to as Saigon by many locals. We'll visit the iconic Notre Dame Cathedral, constructed entirely with materials imported from France, and the historic Central Post Office, designed by renowned architect Gustave Eiffel. 
    Our tour will also include a visit to the City People's Committee Headquarters, formerly known as the Central City Hall, and the Museum of Traditional Vietnamese Medicine, offering insights into the country's rich medical heritage. We'll then take a leisurely stroll along Dong Khoi Street, past the City Hall and Opera House, immersing ourselves in the city's colonial-era charm. 
    The remainder of the day will be at leisure, allowing us to further explore the city's vibrant streets or indulge in some shopping at the local markets. 
    Have a night stay in Ho Chi Minh City.

    After breakfast, we'll embark on an unforgettable journey to the Mekong Delta, a region known as the "rice bowl" of Vietnam. Our scenic drive will take us to Ben Tre, located in the heart of the delta's network of waterways. Upon arrival, we'll embark on a boat trip along the Mekong River to Mo Cay, a charming rural area renowned for its coconut trade and traditional craftsmanship.
    We'll explore the lush greenery of the coconut palm-covered island by bicycle or Xe loi (motorized cycle), traversing scenic paths that offer a glimpse into local life. Our adventure will continue with a peaceful rowing boat ride along the narrow waterways, providing us with an intimate insight into the delta's unique ecosystem. We'll visit a traditional village and enjoy a warm welcome from the local residents, who will share their customs and traditions with us. Afterward, we'll return to Ho Chi Minh City, where the evening will be at leisure. 
    Overnight stay in Ho Chi Minh City.

    Today marks the conclusion of our unforgettable journey through Vietnam and Thailand. After breakfast, we'll have some free time to relax or explore the city independently. Later, at the designated time, we'll transfer to the airport for our international departure flight, taking with us cherished memories of our time spent exploring these captivating destinations.

    Mr. Patrick and Mrs. Marie Perou

    The rest of the journey went very well until Pu Long, largely thanks to Thien who quickly understood what we wanted to see (amazing hikes) and what we wanted to experience in our interactions with the minority ethnic groups. Thanks to our guide, we had many warm exchanges and shared beautiful emotions over tea, fruits, and bong gao in their humble homes. Unforgettable experiences in the villages of tiles, knives, incense, and weaving.

    An opportunity for great happiness to experience the Than Minh festival proposed by Thien.

    Thank you for the foot massage, which was a pure moment of relaxation... It made us want to book a full body massage upon our return from Pu Long.

    We are truly delighted with our journey in the North, although we missed the good weather a bit.

    A word also about our driver, who was extremely careful on the mountain roads and always provided valuable assistance with a smile for his passengers.

    Looking forward to continuing towards Halong Bay tomorrow.

    Greetings from Lima, guys! We just got home and we don't even feel tired! I still have the energy to keep going, haha!
    Now, let's talk about the North. In February, from Hanoi to Ha Long, there is a lot of drizzle. I suggest other visitors always carry a fine raincoat when they go. Luckily, it didn't alter our plan much. We enjoyed the coffee with egg and the bun cha. Ms. Nhung knew all the perfect places to eat, without worrying about finding available places, and at good prices! I'll send you some great photos from Hanoi!
    But, the most amazing thing was the experience on the Mekong! Just perfect. We loved Mr. Nguyen; He had an in-depth knowledge of the place, which made us enjoy it to the fullest. He also shared a lot of interesting things about the Vietnamese and their current and current culture, not just theory.
    The hotels were ok, no complaints. This trip makes us think of Cambodia and Thailand with our friends in the future (still wishes)
    I think that's enough for now. See y

    Hello Mrs. Huyen and all her team,

    We had dreamed it, we had prepared our trip with the guides, and now we are back, with the images still fresh in our minds.

    Thank you and congratulations for this perfect organization, despite the fact that a flight was delayed a day at the last minute. We found our guides and drivers as planned, the guides were friendly, spoke perfect Spanish, the "busy" program was respected.

    Recounting our journey could become a real novel, so we will talk about the main points. Now, worry before leaving because the guides said that we should avoid the Tet period, that for the lunar new year everything was closed, anyway what joy, flowers, decorations, events everywhere.

    👉Hanoi, staying in the center, after a tour of the city, and a visit to Kampa Tour, a well-deserved siesta, we set off on foot (without a guide) through the narrow streets (thanks to the GPS to find the hotel).

    👉The next day, visits to museums, great water puppet show.

    We're on the flight from Siem Reap to Bangkok. I'm writing these lines because I'm eager to share more details about the trip, in addition to praising the services (hotels, restaurants, etc.) that I mentioned during the call in Vietnam.

    Visiting the Angkor Wat temple complex is worth it. When we entered, we felt like we were becoming tiny people. It was a very surprising experience. On the second day, when we arrived at the lakeside village of Kompong Khleang, the scenery isn't beautiful, but it showcases the culture of the people, which is very interesting. The tour guide in Cambodia is very good, has a good sense of humor, and is always willing to explain everything coherently. So we didn't respond to the message immediately.

    The continuity between the visit to Cambodia and the conclusion of the trip in Vietnam is certainly very reasonable. The number of days for visiting is also appropriate. In addition to following our itinerary, we also made use of our free t

    January 2024 - The trip went well. We had memorable experiences in Asia with your team, the guides, and even the driver. Everything went smoothly, from the weather to the services (meals, accommodations) you arranged for us. Here are more details:

    The first week in Vietnam was very good. We loved the egg coffee. Vietnamese cuisine is very diverse, and it was great because we had time to try most of the typical dishes: pho, bun cha, cao lau, and banh mi. The Old Quarter of Hanoi has an ancient beauty, but it's still a bit noisy. The cyclo experience was very reasonable and helped us not get bored while going to Hoi An, also to the Old Quarter, but to explore it by bikes. Ha Long Bay is very beautiful. The cruise was excellent.

    The next part of the trip was in Cambodia, where we had truly amazing moments in front of the ruins of Angkor Wat. The tour guide in Cambodia was very detailed in everything we wanted to know. A few days in Cambodia are enough.

    The end of the trip was in

    Dec 23, 2023 - We came back enchanted from our trip to Vietnam as a couple. Vietnam is a magnificent and endearing country.

    The inhabitants are very welcoming and kind. As soon as we got back, we were already looking forward to going back. This was our first trip to Asia. Thanks to Vietnam Découverte and above all to its highly competent team, and in particular Madame Thom Doan, we set off with great confidence, and we haven't regretted it. The organization is impeccable, the hotels are top-quality and the activities varied (visits, trekking, kayaking, cycling, etc.).

    The program was heavy, but we were able to split the tour into 17 days instead of 15, to take advantage of each region.

    What a pleasure it was to be accompanied in each region by a guide who spoke perfect French and knew the country very well. We were able to travel with complete peace of mind, letting ourselves be guided and driven without worrying about a thing.

It would not have been possible without Mrs. Duong Lan, our Vietnam découverte correspondent, who was always available and very attentive, and who proposed a personalized tour according to our needs, guiding us in our choices.
    The hotels were chosen with great care, and we really appreciated the home-stay accommodations, which gave us the chance to share special moments with the families. 
    Our driver, Phong, young and careful, was wonderful and very kind. Our guide, Hiep, "a walking encyclopedia of Vietnam", knew northern Vietnam and its history inside out. He was very committed, a good listener and had great human qualities to match his skills.
