InsideVietnam Tours is promoting a 16-night tour that gives guests the chance to hike through mountains, stay in remote villages, camp near caves, enjoy cultural immersion on foot, bicycle and motorbike and experience beach-side relaxation.
The 'Vietnam Adventure' begins in Hanoi with a local food blogger, who takes guests to the city's hidden corners and markets to discover culinary delights and taste street food, before boarding the overnight Victoria Express for the mountains of the Lao Cai province in northern Vietnam. Four days of traditional culture, scenery and rural lifestyles follow, accompanied by an expert guide. Guests will meet the Dao, H'mong, Nuung, Lung Phin and Tay tribes who live near the Chinese border near Ha Giang, and stay with a family in a house on stilts.
The tour continues in Phong Nha National Park to explore the caves and camp under the stars, followed by visits to Vinh Moc Tunnels (where villagers lived underground during the Vietnam-American War), the Imperial city of Hue and the coastal town of Hoi An.
Prices lead in at £2,400 per person based on two sharing and include nine nights' accommodation in hotels, two nights camping, two nights in a local homestay and three nights on a sleeper train; breakfast, some lunches and dinners; domestic flights; transfers and guided excursions as per the itinerary. International flights are extra.
