    Program description

    Welcome to Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam! Arrive in the bustling metropolis, formerly known as Saigon, and once the capital of South Vietnam. After your long flight, take the remainder of the day to unwind and gracefully transition into the new time zone.

    Wake up refreshed in the embrace of your luxurious hotel and savor a delightful breakfast before starting a day of exploration with your private guide.

    Then discover the city's treasures, as listed below:

    • Ben Thanh Market: A symbol of vitality and commerce.
    • Notre Dame Cathedral and the Central Post Office: Architectural marvels crafted by Gustave Eiffel.
    • Headquarters of the Popular Committee: The city's colonial gem.
    • Museum of Traditional Medicine: A voyage into the ancient realm of Vietnamese healing.
    • Chinatown (Cho Lon) with the temple of the Heavenly Lady Thien Hau.
    • The Cu Chi underground labyrinth.

    Back to Ho Chi Minh City at the end of the day, having experienced its multifaceted charm.

    Submerge yourself in the beauty of the Mekong Delta. Begin with a scenic 2.5-hour drive to Ben Tre, then set out for a private motorized boat, cruising along one of the most poetry tributaries. Explore local treasures such as a coconut candy workshop, a brick-making facility, and a straw mat weaving workshop subsequently. Enjoy a motor cart ride through lush fruit gardens and a tranquil garden restaurant lunch. Glide serenely along a peaceful canal shaded by nipa palm trees before returning to your boat.

    Later in the day, we will promptly convey you to Danang Airport for a convenient one-hour evening flight to Danang City, serving as your gateway to Hoi An. After the advent, you'll be warmly transferred to your hotel for a peaceful night's rest.

    Start off your morning adventure with a friendly local guide to uncover the charm of Hoi An's beautifully preserved trading port!

    At 8:00 a.m., we will begin diving into the rich history, cultural intersections, and delightful local way of life. Admire the Cam Pho communal house and marvel at the iconic Japanese Covered Bridge. Step into the Quan Thang ancient house and soak in the vibrant ambiance of the Fujian Assembly Hall. Explore the lively central market: Experience the daily rhythms of local life and treat your taste buds to culinary delights. Get hands-on as you do-it-yourself traditional lanterns alongside passionate artisans.

    The rest of the day is yours to continue your exploration or leisurely return to your hotel. Enjoy every moment!

    Wallow in a sedate morning in Hoi An, where you can choose to take part in some final activities in the charming old town or bask in relaxation at the stunning Cua Dai beach.  As noon approaches, it's time to get ready for a short flight to Hanoi. 

    Upon arriving in Hanoi, the ancient capital steeped in a thousand years of history, an English-speaking guide from Kampá Tour will welcome you with joviality at the airport. They will assist in your transfer to a centrally located hotel, and your day's itinerary will be adjusted according to your arrival time. Begin your exploration of this historic city by visiting its key landmarks:

    • King Ly Thai To Square: Plunge into the thousand-year history of the Vietnamese capital at this iconic square.
    • Hoan Kiem Lake: Discover the enchanting Hoan Kiem Lake or Lake of the Restored Sword, home to the Temple of Mount Jade and the Turtle Islet nestled in the heart of Hanoi.
    • Hanoi Old Quarter: Take a leisurely stroll among the Hanoi Old Quarter, prominent for its 36 corporation streets. Let’s meander through streets dedicated to various crafts, each named after the goods produced and sold there. And don't miss Ma May Street, where you can explore an old 'Tube' house, a characteristic example of traditional Hanoi architecture.

    Afterward, enjoy some free time for relaxation.

    Your overnight stay awaits at the hotel.

    Your journey will commence with our tour guide personally collecting you from your hotel. Depending on your preferences, you can choose between a luxurious limousine or an adventurous motorbike for your city exploration.

    Today's itinerary features visits to several illustrious attractions:

    • Temple of Literature: This significant cultural and historical monument in Vietnam serves as a place of worship for students seeking blessings before exams.
    • One Pillar Pagoda: An architectural and spiritual gem, widely recognized for its unique design, not only in Vietnam but also across Asia.
    • Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum: A mandatory stop where people come to pay their respects, express gratitude, and engross themselves in cultural and historical relics.
    • Tran Quoc Pagoda: Located by Hanoi's West Lake, this ancient religious structure seamlessly blends majesty, heritage, and elegance in its architectural prowess.

    After concluding the sightseeing, you will be served with an authentic Vietnamese lunch at a local restaurant. Subsequently, our guide will accompany you back to your hotel, ensuring an enriching experience.

    Depart for Ninh Binh, known as the land of limestone karsts and rice fields flooded by rivers and lakes throughout the year.

    Afterward, arrive in Ninh Xuan, visit Mua Mountain. Climb a 486-step white stone staircase to the summit of this bell-shaped mountain, offering a panoramic view of the Tam Coc region.

    A limestone mountain located near the rivers and sugar loaves of Tam Coc. In the past, it was famous for its dance performances offered to the kings of the Tran dynasty (13th-14th century).

    Next, transfer to Tam Coc, for a bike ride and leisurely exploration of the region.

    A vast landscaped area including sugar loaf rock formations, rice fields and rivers. Boat trips on the Ngo Dong River, through the sugar loaves, will allow you to fully enjoy the lush surrounding nature.

    In the afternoon, enjoy a boat excursion on the Ngo Dong River to explore Tam Coc, winding through rice paddies, stunning karst formations, and passing under the three caves at the base of the limestone peaks.

    To call it a day, return to Hanoi and spend the night at your hotel while reminiscing about the scenic wonders you’ve experienced.

    Let’s begin your pilgrimage to Ha Long Bay, the most beautiful bay in Vietnam and one of the most magical landscapes in Asia. Board a traditional junk as you made your way to the destination, then receive a warm welcome from the crew. Set sail for an unforgettable cruise across the bay, where you'll have the opportunity to explore the northern part of Halong Bay, known as Bai Tu Long:

    We provide shared junks, typically smaller in size with 10 to 12 cabins, suitable for hosting around twenty passengers. Alternatively, you have the choice of selecting a private cruise on a smaller junk, offering one or a few cabins, for a truly unforgettable experience. Don't hesitate to get in touch with us if you're interested in this option.

    • Witness the breathtaking beauty of picturesque islands and islets, each with its unique shapes resembling sails, dogs, roosters, and incense burners.
    • Explore the stunning caves of Halong Bay, including Thien Canh Son, which houses stalagmites and stalactites dating back several thousand years.
    • The cruise then continues to Cap La, where you can embark on a kayaking adventure and take a refreshing swim in the bay's pristine waters, weather permitting.
    • End the afternoon by relaxing on the upper deck of the junk.
    • As the day unfolds, you can participate in a culinary demonstration on board, where you can learn the art of preparing spring rolls. 
    • Then, take pleasure in a tasty seafood lunch and dinner which were prepared by the skilled onboard chefs.

    The evening is yours for personal rest and relaxation, with options like card games, night fishing,... or simply enjoying the peaceful ambiance of the bay.
    Night on board.

    Rise at dawn to savor a truly unique spectacle: the first rays of sunlight peering over the countless sugarloaf peaks of the bay, followed by a serene Tai Chi session on the terrace.

    Tai Chi, the art of deep relaxation, involves performing a series of slow, flowing, and circular movements.

    Enjoy lunch on the junk, then disembark and return to Hanoi.

    Our journey ends today. You can either prepare for departure or take your chance to discover the allure of the vibrant streets and markets for souvenirs. Rest assured, our dedicated team will support your airport transfer. Reflect on your adventures and bid Vietnam farewell. Until next time!

    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.

    November 13, 2023 - Our trip was simply extraordinary and wonderful. It was a lesson in life. 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.
