Northern Vietnam Luxury Adventure Tour 8 days

We guide you through the most exciting destinations of Northern Vietnam. Start your trip in cosmopolitan Hanoi , where you will be treated to a private city tour, dinner at one of the city’s leading restaurants, and a performance of the famed water puppets.

After Hanoi, you take the deluxe Victoria Express train to Sapa. Set among the highest mountains in Vietnam , at the border of China , Sapa is one of the country’s most intriguing destinations. It gains its reputation most notably for its terraced rice paddies and colorful markets where villagers converge to sell and buy goods and, most importantly, to socialize. The ‘Victoria Express’ train has revolutionized the accessibility of this area of Vietnam . In Sapa, spend time learning about the local hill tribe villages and absorb the magnificent scenery before taking the train back to Hanoi .

We spend a night on a junk cruising Halong Bay , where thousands of limestone rock sculptures jut dramatically from the sea and numerous grottoes have created an ephemeral, fantastic landscape.
