1/ Wander the Old Quarter of Hanoi


Located in northern Vietnam, Hanoi is such a joy to wander. For us, the Old Quarter is the highlight of Hanoi. It can be a bit chaotic, with crowded sidewalks and streets, exotic, colorful food for sale, and motorbikes zipping everywhere. But that is all just part of the experience.

If you are traveling to Vietnam for your first time, try not to make Hanoi your first stop. It can be overwhelming at first (but that is also part of its allure). You may want to visit more low-key cities such as Hoi An or Hue before visiting Hanoi.

If you want to wander around Hanoi for a day, the Hanoi City Tour One Day is the best!

2/ Trekking in Sapa


One of the best things to do in Vietnam is following one of the incredible hiking trails in the region of Sapa. Rice terraces, buffalo lazily chewing on the grass, traditional villages and the smiling faces of the locals make this area truly enjoyable. And for us, this is another spot in Vietnam just waiting to be explored.

3/ Cruise Halong Bay


Halong Bay is an indispensable destination in highlight Northern Vietnam package. It is one of Vietnam’s most recognizable sites. Towering limestone mountains lie scattered in the emerald waters of the bay. Two and three day cruises are offered. If you have the time, the three day cruise lets you explore farther into the Halong Bay, for a more authentic, memorable experience.

6/ Get a History Lesson at the Cu Chi Tunnels - Ho Chi Minh city


The Cu Chi Tunnels are an immense network of tunnels used by the Viet Cong during the Vietnam War. The tricks and methods the Viet Cong used to confuse and baffle American soldiers are amazing. A visit to the Cu Chi Tunnels is an immersive history lesson that even kids find very interesting.

7/ Cruise the Mekong Delta


The Mekong Delta, located at the most southern reaches of the country, is also called the “rice bowl.” The Mekong River snakes its way through Southeast Asia, starting in China, flowing past Laos and Cambodia, and finally ends here, before dumping out into the South China Sea.

It is here, in this southern part of Vietnam, that the Mekong sends out numerous tributaries and rivers, forming a huge network of canals. These canals link rice farms and towns, a tropical maze that is a joy to explore by boat. Spend a day or spend a week and visit this colorful, bustling part of Vietnam.
