Vietnam Tours

Vietnam Tours will give you a true oriental experience flavoured by Indian and Hindu culture. The royal tombs of the Nguyen Dynasty in the city of Hue are so glamorous it seems a shame that the occupants cannot enjoy it every day! However, plenty of tourists do. Situated amongst fragrant pine forests, magnificent lakes and a pavilion complex, it will make perfect photographs to take home and frame. Take a cruise on an azure ocean in Halong Bay where limestone karsts appear to have popped up from the depths in various shapes and sizes making them look almost surreal. Then head off to Vietnam’s capital Hanoi (‘the grand old lady of the orient’) for a lively night life experience.

The best time to visit Vietnam

The best time to visit Vietnam is from January to May. During this period, you’ll have the slimmest chance of encountering monsoons, which fall in the southwest (around Ho Chi Minh) from May to September, and in the northeast from October to April (around Hanoi and Sapa). To get the best experience and views of Sapa. Ha Long Bay and stunning Tam Coc, which are all in the north, head to the country between December and May.

How to get around Vietnam?

Vietnam is a long, thin country, so we recommend you start in either Hanoi (in the north, near China and Laos) or Ho Chi Minh City (in the south, near Cambodia and the Mekong Delta) and traverse the length of it from north to south or vice versa, stopping at highlights such as Hue and Hoi an along the way. Highway 1 runs the length of Vietnam making air-conditioned coaches the best option for most budget travelers. Long distance ones are fitted with sleeper berths, and prices are reasonable.

There is also a railway that runs the length of Vietnam. The trains tend to be comfortable and offer great views. Fares from Hanoi to Ho Chi Minh City start from $40 for a seat and go up to $60 for a comfortably air-conditioned sleeper.

If you’re short on time in the country and want to cover large distances, we can help you book domestic flights when you plan your trip, or you can check out one of our tours!

How long do I need to travel Vietnam?

There’s no easy answer to how long you should spend in Vietnam. Your visa will allow you a month in the country and you should try to use as many days as possible of it, to soak the amazing culture and history up. Most travellers spend two to three weeks in the country, with three weeks being the optimum amount of time to get from Hanoi to Ho Chi Minh or vice versa, stopping a few days in places like Sapa, Ha Long Bay, Ninh Binh, Phong Nha Ke Bang National Park, Hue, Hoi An, Nha Trang, Dalat, Mui Ne and the Mekong Delta.
