Flexible itinerary

Private tours mean you do not have to depend on other people like a group tour – you can customize your wish list as convenient and flexible as you want. Unlike group travel tours, everything is planned available. By contrast, for private tours, you have to plan your own trip from scratch – from the beginning, asking for reviews, customizing the trip to the most convenient approach like traveling by plane or car, or staying at a hotel or a homestay, all are in your favor and budget. You can also add your personal touch, or adjust your plan by adding more exciting or reduce the less attractive destinations. 

As a result, the final plan will be what you’ve designed yourself to be the way you enjoy it most – it will be much more encouraging and relaxing than group travel tours. And of course, larger group tours via agencies will never enable you to create and customize your journey like this.

Vietnam is divided into three regions, including the North, the Central and the South. Although there are common features in the dining style but still have different characteristics in each region. It can be resulted from the differences in geography, culture, climate, and taste, but above all, it contributes to bringing richness and diversity to the cuisine of Vietnam. Traditional food and special food are the food that every tourists. However, there are risks of unsafe food, especially street food.

The best time to visit Vietnam varies in seasons & regions: The North, Central & South.

As a tropical country, like other Southeast Asian countries, Vietnam  possesses two typical seasons: the dry and rainy season. For tourism, traveling in the dry season should be better to enjoy the sunny sky, warm blue seas and exotic landscapes. 

Vietnam is divided into three regions with different climate and natural beauty. 

– The North in which you can visit Hanoi, Dien Bien, Mochau or Halong Bay, Ninh Binh and Hagiang experiences the most rainfall between June and September. 

– The Central Vietnam like Danang, Hoian and Hue, rainfall happens during the winter months including October and November. 

– Like the North, the South Vietnam if you choose Ho Chi Minh City or Vung Tau, it is on their highest rainfall in June, July, August and September. 

So if you want to spend your holiday in Vietnam in the most amazing weather to explore all sports and activities, avoid these months.

Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum, Hoan Kiem Lake and Ngoc Son temple, The Old Quarter, and The Temple of Literature are worth visiting. 

A unique cuisine that attracts both Hanoi foodie and many travelers is street food Hanoi. Do not worry, as when traveling to Hanoi, you are “lost” in the food heaven: Pho, Pho Bo, Cha Ca, Xoi, Che, Bun Cha, Banh Cuon and many other.

 

– Danang

A lot of things to do in Danang Vietnam, the most livable city of Vietnam, but do not forget to visit My Khe Beach, as one of the must-see destinations in Danang Vietnam. Why? Simply if you want to enjoy fresh air in golden sands, gentle waves, year-round warm water and surrounding coconut palm trees, My Khe is the most amazing choice. The traffic here is very light and safe, excellent accommodation with luxurious resorts, international standard villas are available. Da Nang is truly blessed with outstanding nature. Apart from My Khe Beach, you should spend some time during your trip to travel to other attractions, such as Son Tra Peninsula, Ba Na Hills Mountain Resort, The Ngu Hanh Son Mount or Hoi An.

Hoian is not just famous for its ancient beauty and beautiful landscapes recognized many times worldwide, but also for its authentic cuisine as one of the 25 most attractive destinations for foodies around the world. Do not forget that you are in a heaven of street food. Trying street food will bring you an interesting and unforgettable experience and here are top 4 most popular and favorable dishes that you must eat when landing on this lovely city – Cao lau – Hoian’s signature dish, Hoian Chicken Rice – Com Ga Hoi An, White Rose in Hoian and Quang Noodle – Mi Quang.

 

– Hue

It is no surprise when Hue is one of the top destinations must-see in Vietnam as its peaceful, outstanding natural landscapes together with friendly and helpful people. Located along the banks of the Huong River, Hue, the regional economic, cultural, touristic, scientific, specialized health, education and training hub of central Viet Nam is an attractive destination. 

It is famous for its temples, bastions, mausoleums, architecture, and natural landscapes mostly covered by a layer of green moss, which creates a relaxing sensation. And spending time visiting Hue is considered as one of the top things to do in Vietnam.

 

– Phu Quoc

As on top 3 famous tourist attractions by National Geographic and top 10 cruise heavens in Asia by Asia One, Phu Quoc is undoubtedly your must-see destination this summer. Phu Quoc’s untouched beauty attracts those loving pristine beaches and the intact beauty of the wilderness and nature.

The beach remains pristine with crystal blue water, romantic palm trees and soft sands, which is extremely suitable for boat-sailing, sunbathing, diving, swimming, scuba-diving and wandering, especially enjoying the sunset and sunrise with your lovers.

 Mui Ne

If you are adventure-lover, Phan Thiet with Mui Ne is also an attractive cultural tourist destination with a diverse population of Chinese and Cham people along with the unique cuisine from fresh seafood. Located in Phan Thiet, Mui Ne is one of the most famous beaches in Vietnam for its spectacular bright red sand dunes where we can sled down on bits of cardboard to have great fun as well. The wind can pick up on the beach in the afternoon, the breeze is great but you can end getting sand blasted on the beach in the morning. 

 

– My Khe

Rated as one of the six most charming beaches on the planet in 2015 (Forbes) and one of the ten best beaches in Asia by Sunday Herald Sun Magazine of Australia, My Khe is worth visiting. In addition to swimming, tourists can participate in many fun activities like scuba diving and observing coral reefs, regatta, flash mobbing and many more activities in the beach. My Khe beach has something to suit all tastes.  Watching the sunset and views of Da Nang City is also an enjoyable experience at My Khe. You can enjoy city views without all the noise from here.  

 

– Nha Trang

Known as the Riviera of the South China Sea, Nha Trang boasts a six-km stretch of beautiful coastline along with the white sandy beaches and blue water. I highly recommend this place for those wishing to escape the often overcrowded city. Some outstanding beaches are Tran Phu beach and Hon Chong beach, Bai Tru Beach, Bai Dai beach, Nhu Tien beach. One of the most favorable beaches is Doc Let with a lot of palm trees and fishing boats offshore as well as the image of white salt mountains and locals carrying heavy baskets across the fields. Actually, Doc Let beach seems to be primitive and squeaking under foot as you walk in soft sand will be a perfect escape.

Son Doong Cave 

Located at the heart of Phong Nha Ke Bang National Park. Son Doong Cave is the largest known cave passage in the world. Hang Son Doong was formed on the edge of a fault zone and has been carved out by the mighty Rao Thuong River as it erodes away the limestone. Giant sinkholes, known as dolines, have collapsed sometime up to 300’000 years ago, creating massive openings to the outside world. Cave pearls the size of baseballs have been formed by water dropping from the ceiling.The first expedition had been halted by an 80m high calcite barrier, which was jokingly dubbed the ‘Great Wall Of Vietnam’. It wasn’t until their second expedition in 2010, when the Great Wall was finally climbed and the end of the passage was found, that Hang Son Doong was determined to be the largest cave in the world. At over 5km long, with sections reaching up to 200m tall and 150m wide, Hang Son Doong is large enough to house an entire New York City block, complete with 40 story skyscrapers. With a total measured volume of 38.5 million cubic meters, this comfortably surpasses Deer Cave in Malaysia, which was considered to be the previous record holder. Stalagmites up to 80m high have also been surveyed, the tallest ever encountered.

In the past, the former French station on the Sapa Mountain is the main trekking destination of the hill tribes of Vietnam thanks to its epic landscape, its excellent hiking opportunities and its proximity to the Hoang Lien Son mountains with the Fansipan peak – the roof of Indochina. From Fansipan summit, you can admire stunning landscapes of 3 countries including Laos, Vietnam and China.

 

Dalat

Known as the City of Love and Eternal Spring, Dalat is an extremely ideal place for those wishing to enjoy all-year-round cool temperate weather, romantic landscapes from dreamy pine tree forests, awe-inspiring flower fields to French boulevards and villas from the colonial period. A lot of amazing, famous and peaceful attractions are waiting for us.

Hagiang

In addition to the unique culture of ethnic minorities, Ha Giang’s majestic beauty of mountain is such a hit with both local and foreign tourists. With its untouched scenery, Ha Giang is one of the most-recommended tourist attractions in Vietnam, especially for those wishing to get closer to Vietnam countryside.

This is ideal for backpackers and those wishing to conquer new lands and challenge themselves. The mountain ranges soaring up will give a breathtaking view when we are at mountain summits. The deep valleys, dense forests together with amazing waterfalls create a majestic scenery that can satisfy all visitors. In late spring and early autumn, the region looks colorful with rice terraces, while in the winter, the mountains are even covered with snow. Especially, Ma Pi Leng Pass and Happiness Road in Ha Giang are the favorite spots of adventurous trekkers.

Tam Dao

Just about 60 km from Hanoi, Tam Dao town in Vinh Phuc province is one of the most favorite places for those wishing to rest after a week of hard work. The first feeling when you step foot down on this dreamy land is the fresh air and there seems to be a giant natural air conditioning quietly spraying the cold air for the whole area.

Traveling to Tam Dao, enjoy the cold early autumn, take a sip coffee cup or relax on the romantic ramp to see the mountain clouds. Feeling the tranquility of the evening or the peace of the morning is no better. After a week of hard work, leaving behind tired tension, avoiding the smoke and dust of the city, what is better than going to peaceful Tam Dao for relaxation with nature where to find yourself the silence in the soul.

Naturally blessed with a variety of landscapes from highlands, national parks, hills, mountains, forests to beaches and islands, Northern Vietnam can satisfy all tourists – whatever they wish to explore, they can start immediately if they join some Vietnam all-inclusive packages for their trip.

Hagiang

With its pristine scenery, Ha Giang is not only one of the best tourist attractions in Vietnam, but also an ideal place for all backpackers by its perfect mountainous landscapes, dense forests, magnificent waterfalls and distinctive cultures of tribal people.

Having remained untouched by mass tourism, with the majestic highland, Ha Giang is the best choice for mountain discovery in Vietnam. In spring and autumn, this region looks charming and colorful with rice terraces, while in the winter, the mountains are covered by snow, thus, beside Sapa, Ha Giang is also a great place to taking photos with snow in the tropics like Vietnam. Ma Pi Leng Pass and Happiness Road in Ha Giang are such a hit with adventurous backpackers.

Unique and high-valued culture attracts tourists coming to this mysterious land. Spending time visiting some villages, you can explore and get closer to the life of different tribal groups such as Tay, Dao, Pu Peo, Nung, or Lo Lo. Dong Van Karst Global Geopark as UNESCO-listed Park with its geological and cultural values is also worth visiting. 

Sapa

As a country which mountainous area makes up over ¾ of the whole area, Vietnam is undoubtedly a great destination that enables travelers to discover the majestic beauty of mountains and experience exciting adventurous activities. Just a small town in the mountainous northwest of Vietnam, Sapa has always been listed as the best tour in North Vietnam, which has attracted millions of travelers each year.

Coming to Sapa, tourists will be impressed by the magnificent mountains loom in front of them. The high green hills, the colorful terraced rice fields, and the marvelous mountain peaks are the irresistible appeal to travelers. In recent years, under the influence of the climate change, the winter gets dramatically cold and the temperature drops sharply. Therefore, if you come to Sapa in late December or early January, there is a likelihood of seeing snow. Especially, Fansipan peak – the summit of Indochina is crowned with a headdress of ice. 

Despite unfavorable terrain, hiking in Sapa is still such a hit with tourists. What is more interesting than trekking, visiting trial group villages, sightseeing, admiring the sunrise and sunset or enjoying the cool air?

Lang Biang

Lang Biang Mountains is located on Lang Biang Plateau, Lam Dong Province. About 12 km from Dalat center, Lang Biang stands stunningly like the roof of Dalat. From the top of Lang Biang Mountain, you can admire the Golden Stream and Silver Stream, or observe the whole dreamy Dalat, which looks like a lush green valley with two pieces of silver silk (the Golden and Silver Stream), and especially enjoy the sunset with your lovers and hear the legend about K’Lang and Ho Biang’ love story.

Here, tourists can take part in many different activities such as camping, exploring the natural flora and enjoying the unique and diversified culture of ethnic minority groups. Lang Biang is also an ideal place for those wishing an adventurous trip like mountain climbing, conquering high peaks, paragliding and trekking. 

Finally, “Hundred-year valley” at the foot of Lang Biang is a must-see destination for those loving an entertainment and ecological tourist site.

Though as a small country in Southeast Asia, Vietnam has long been an attractive destination for different kinds of tourism due to its diverse nature, from vast deltas, national parks, highlands to long coastline of marvelous beaches or islands. You can spend time with your family or friends, travel to get a deeper understanding of a new culture, or simply travel to relax and get closer to nature. If you wish to be deep into nature, biking will be a good choice, which is also top things to do in Northern Vietnam. 

Hoian

What is more amazing than cycling in the most beautiful gem of Vietnam? Being one of the oldest cities in the country, Hoian attracts thousands and millions of tourists every year for its unique architectures, ancient streets perfectly dotted with unobtrusive street vendors in their Vietnamese silk pajamas. It is also the best place for foreigners to get deeper understanding about Vietnamese lives, tradition and customs. 

Bavi

Ba Vi is also regarded as “Dalat of Northern Vietnam”. Just 50 kilometers far from Hanoi, in the summer morning, biking in Ba Vi is such a great experience as its cool and fresh air creating a sense of well-being for everyone who comes here. That is the reason why Ba Vi seems to be the most popular choice for those wishing to relax after the hustle and bustle of modern life in Hanoi. 

The romantic scenery will make every visitor love it at first sight. On one side, there are many tall trees covered with soothing moss, and the other side impresses everyone with a clear blue sky with white wisps of white clouds lurking around the mountain peaks. On the top of the mountain, the vibrant violet color of lust brushes looks like purple clouds being prominent in the mist. From the gateway, there are two directions, if visitors want to enjoy exotic flowers and birds, let’s choose the bamboo forest. If you want to reach the top of the mountain, let’s go deeper and follow a steep slope. This road goes up high, bringing visitors into a virtual space of clouds, wind and birds singing in the forest.

Moc Chau

Approximately 200km from Hanoi, at the height of 1,000m above sea level, Moc Chau plateau (Moc Chau district, Son La province) is naturally endowed with stunning beauty. Each season, Moc Chau attracts tourist with a delicate and beautiful appearance.

Moc Chau is gorgeous all year round, but the most beautiful time is the nesting season of birds and the blooming flower season with the pure white of broccoli, the green of tea fields, the wild and yellow color of wild sunflowers or the picturesque of plum blossoms and pink blossoms in Spring. 

You can ride your bike around the town to pay a visit to many different places such as the pine forest in Ban Ang where you can cycle around the lake, take a deeper discovery into the pine forest with some strange animals, harvest strawberries or enjoy the sunset and slowly sip at your coffee. Other destinations are Happyland, Heart-shaped tea hill, Doi cave, Dai Yem waterfall and tea farms. 

Red-Shanked Douc

Da Nang is not only famed for its beautiful beaches but also for being home to the red-shanked douc – “the queen” of the primates. Covering 4,400ha, Son Tra forest, the only one in Vietnam which has the ecosystem of a natural forest and the sea, creates an ideal habitat to hundreds of species of animals, including 22 rare and endangered ones, including the red-shanked douc – a native of Indochina. From April to June, Son Tra is charmingly beautiful when the trees shed their leaves, the Than mat blooms are purple and the red-shanked doucs appear on low mountain slopes near the sea. They move in groups of five or seven, eating tender leaves. In the sunshine through forest canopies, the animals look so special with their colorful fur, expressive faces, clear eyes, snub noses and long white whiskers.

 

Asian Water Monitor

The Asian water monitor (Varanus salvator), is a large lizard native to South and Southeast Asia. Water monitors are one of the most common monitor lizards found throughout Asia, and range from Sri Lanka and India to Indochina, the Malay Peninsula, and various islands of Indonesia, living in areas close to water. The species is known as Malayan water monitor, Asian water monitor, common water monitor, two-banded monitor, and as rice lizard, ring lizard, plain lizard and no-mark lizard, as well as simply “water monitor”.

 

Burmese Python

Burmese pythons (Python bivittatus), with their beautifully patterned skin, rapid growth rate, and generally docile disposition, may be best known as the large snake of choice among reptile owners. Native to the jungles and grassy marshes of Southeast Asia, Burmese pythons are among the largest snakes on Earth. They are capable of reaching 23 feet (7 meters) or more in length and weighing up to 200 pounds (90 kilograms) with a girth as big as a telephone pole. When young, they will spend much of their time in the trees. However, as they mature and their size and weight make tree climbing unwieldy, they transition to mainly ground-dwelling. Burmese pythons are solitary animals and are generally only seen together during spring mating. Females lay clutches of up to 100 eggs, which they incubate for two to three months. To keep their eggs warm, they continually contract, or shiver, their muscles.

Romantic landscapes

Despite as a small country, Vietnam has become such a hit in Southeast Asia with tourists by hundreds and thousands of natural wonders, fantastic natural beauty and cultural complexities, and dynamic megacities and hill-tribe villages. Each region impresses visitors by different landscapes ranging among three most wonderful destinations in the North, the Middle and the South of Vietnam.

The ideal weather

Vietnam is divided into three regions with different climate and landscapes. The North in which you can visit Hanoi, Sapa, Ha Giang or Halong Bay experiences the most rainfall in their summer months between June to September. Meanwhile, Central Vietnam like Danang, Hoian and Hue, rainfall happens between October and November. Like the North, the South of Vietnam if you choose Ho Chi Minh City or Vung Tau, please pay attention to the highest rainfall  in June, July, August and September. 

In each time of year, you could make a visit to different provinces in the wonderful country with your children. In spring, you can book a trip to Hanoi or Ho Chi Minh City to enjoy thoroughly the traditional culture of locals when they are busy with preparation for Tet. There is nothing entertaining for children than observing cultural activities by naked eyes and having opportunities to take part in such meaningful events. 

Honest locals

They are eager to help you if you get lost or attentively show their cuisines, handicrafts or festivals if you wish to travel like a real local. Whoever you are, don’t worry, even it is your first time in Vietnam, the locals are eager to invite you to join them at their table with share snacks, attend their family meal or take part in festivals, or even just simply say hello to you in the street.

Enjoy the egg coffee

Vietnam is pretty famous for its coffee and you will find coffee shops on every corner of every street. What you might not have known is that there are also a lot of specialty coffees, such as this deliciously frothy egg white coffee which you can purchase in certain cafe sin Hanoi. A real treat after a long day sightseeing! Head to the Giang cafe (39 Nguyen Huu Huan) and Dinh Café (13 Đinh Tiên Hoàng) if you want to try in while in Hanoi.

Egg coffee by Mr. Nguyen Giang was from the late 1940s when condensed milk was not as abundant as today. An egg coffee is a mix of  egg yolks, sugar, condensed milk and Robusta coffee. The drink is made by beating egg yolks with sugar and coffee, then extracting the coffee into the half of the cup, followed by a similar amount of egg cream, which is prepared by heating and beating the yolks. The cup is served inside a bowl of hot water to retain its temperature. The marriage of the egg’s rich taste and aromatic coffee wafting through the air makes up specific flavor. Let’s wander and enjoy Hanoi in another taste.

Vietnam is divided into three regions with different climate and landscapes. As a tropical country, like other Southeast Asian countries, Vietnam  possesses two typical seasons: the dry and rainy season. For tourism, traveling in the dry season should be better to enjoy the sunny sky, warm blue seas and exotic landscapes. 

Vietnam is divided into three regions with different climate and natural beauty. 

– The North in which you can visit Hanoi, Dien Bien, Mochau or Halong Bay, Ninh Binh and Hagiang experiences the most rainfall between June and September. 

– The Central Vietnam like Danang, Hoian and Hue, rainfall happens during the winter months including October and November. 

– Like the North, the South Vietnam if you choose Ho Chi Minh City or Vung Tau, it is on their highest rainfall in June, July, August and September. 

So if you want to spend your holiday in Vietnam in the most amazing weather to explore all sports and activities, avoid these months.

However, you can choose to visit Vietnam during monsoon months to not only save the costs but enjoy something interesting that the dry season cannot possess like lower crowds, cooler climate, no need for booking in advance

When coming to a country, not only the local people, places or experience, but also the cuisine impresses tourists. Vietnam is no exception as well.

Northern Vietnam’s cuisine – delicate and sophisticated 

Northern cuisine is a bold statement of a long-standing culture. Coming to the rendezvous was the capital of many dynasties, and Hanoi was considered as the elite cuisine of the North with delicious dishes such as noodles, noodle soups, Bun Cha, Bun Bo, and special spices like Pho Cuon or Nem.

Northern cuisine is not dark, spicy, fatty and sweet like in other regions. It is tasteful, not too intense but colorful. They mainly use diluted fish sauce, shrimp paste, many vegetables and easy-to-make freshwater fish such as shrimp, crab, fish, clams, mussels etc. And in general, due to the ancient tradition of poor farming, Northern cuisine was less prevalent with the main ingredients being meat and fish.

Northerners prefer tasty food, focusing on the natural flavor of the ingredients and colors. They love eye-catching food to stimulate the taste buds. Besides, the northern dishes are also processed in a sophisticated way to highlight the appeal of each dish.

It is such a big pity if you forget Hanoi street food heaven and Northwest mountainous cuisine with Hanoi noodles, sticky rice noodles, spring rolls, fried shrimp, Ho Tay shrimp cake, Cha Cuon and many more. 

 

The Middle of Vietnam – sophisticated and spicy cuisine

Not as varied as Northern cuisine, not as diversified as the cuisine in the South, the Middle impresses us by the beauty of an elegant land. The locals use spicier but less sweet flavors than the South. Especially Hue people, from the dishes for the common people or kings serve many dishes with spicy and especially the sour like tomato sauce or shrimp paste.

Due to its location, The Middle is not as fond of nature as other areas, so the people here always appreciate and turn their wonderful products into the flavor of food. They dedicate to the dishes and make the best ones. It’s very personal, but once you enjoy it, it will be such memorable taste.

 

Southern Vietnam – Bold and Diverse cuisine

Food reflects the culture and its people. Yes, Southern cuisine is simple and charming, not as sophisticated like the honest locals, and just like the simple way of life – the nature but the love of the people here.

Food in the South is very diverse because of the interference of many regions as well as many different ethnic groups. Southern people prefer the food to stimulate the taste, was sweet, must be sweet, has spicy, must be spicy, salty, must be salty, sour, must be sour, bitter, must be bitter.

Interestingly, when thinking about Southern food, tourists often remember amazing dishes with the flavor of coconut milk. Indeed, the food in the South is often accompanied coconut juice to create more appealing taste. In addition, they also like to add pepper to their dishes to add flavor.
