Day 01:Hanoi Arrival

Welcome to Hanoi, the thriving colonial capital of Vietnam. Your driver and tour guide will meet you at the Noi Bai Airport’s baggage claim and drive you to your hotel in the heart of the city. Enjoy a cyclo tour through the Old Quarter’s winding streets lined with French colonial architecture in the afternoon, followed by a traditional Vietnamese performance of water puppets, a distinctive art form that originated in Southeast Asia’s wet-rice culture. Enjoy a welcome dinner at a fine dining establishment in Hanoi.

Meals: Dinner.

Accommodation: Hotel in Hanoi.

Day 02:Hanoi City Tour

You have the entire day today to discover the charming capital of Vietnam. Hanoi is an eclectic mix that has something to offer everyone with its broad, tree-lined boulevards, French colonial architecture, serene lakes, and historic oriental pagodas. The main attractions in Hanoi will be included in your city tour, including the Ho Chi Minh Complex, which includes the stilt house and mausoleum of Ho Chi Minh, the Presidential Palace, the nearby One Pillar Pagoda, the Temple of Literature, West Lake, which is home to the solemn Tran Quoc Pagoda and Quan Thanh Temple, and one of the city’s museums (a choice between the History Museum and the Ethnology Museum).

Meals: Breakfast.

Accommodation: Hotel in Hanoi.

Day 03:Hanoi – Mai Chau

Before leaving for Mai Chau, a wide valley containing picturesque rice paddies and bordered by towering karst rock formations, get up early and have breakfast at the hotel. Enjoy the beautiful scenery of the rural villages and pagodas that dot the landscape. Visit the Muong tribe en route, and then stop at Thung Khe Pass for a breathtaking view of Mai Chau Valley. Spend the afternoon hiking along the Song Ma River away from the beaten path after lunch. Explore the valley’s natural beauty on a trek through terraced rice paddies and small villages, where you’ll also come into contact with the local White Thai culture. Spend the night in a Thai village where you can have dinner with a local family and stay with them in their long house.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner.

Accommodation: Homestay in Mai Chau.

Day 04:Mai Chau – Ninh Binh (Hoa Lu & Trang An)

Before traveling to Hoa Lu, Vietnam’s first capital, enjoy breakfast at the homestay. Visit temples and climb a mountain’s peak a hundred steps for a panoramic view of the former capital. After lunch, take a leisurely cruise to Trang An, a less-frequented nature reserve similar to Tam Coc. A tranquil river flows through a number of caves and is surrounded by limestone hills (one which takes 15-minutes to pass through in darkness). The only sounds heard in this “eco-tourism” area are birds chirping and the gentle paddling of oars on the crystal-clear river. Spend the night at the luxurious Emeralda Ninh Binh Resort & Spa, which enjoys a prime location on the outskirts of the jungles of the Van Long Nature Reserve.
