Itinerary

Day 1: Fly to Hanoi to start your wonderful holidays in Vietnam (Dinner)

Vietnamdrive welcomes you to Hanoi, the capital of Vietnam, where you will start your journey in a beautiful country.

Surely, Vietnamdrive will pick you up and transfer you from Noi Bai airport to a lovely hotel in Hanoi City Center.

Activities recommended to do today are walking around Hoan Kiem Lake, visiting Ngoc SonTemple and The Huc Bridge right here, enjoying a unique performance of Water Puppet for around 30 minutes, taking part in a street party at Bui Hien Beer Street in the Old Quarter.

Overnight in Hanoi.

Day 2: Enjoy the incredible beauty of Halong Bay with thousands of islands (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner)

Today, you will join a group to explore Halong Bay on a 4 or 5-star cruise. Of course, you have a private cabin on the beautiful cruise to stay overnight. If you want to book a private cruise, please tell us to arrange this service!

Ha Long is as beautiful as a fairy garden, created by rocky islands and an immense sea. The cruise will take you lost in the paradise on earth in a 2-day-and-1-night cruise on the bay.

Ha Long Bay is one of the seven natural wonders of the world recognized by UNESCO. With the Ha Long tour, you will admire the magnificent and magical caves, islands, sea, and white sand beaches.

Thank you very much, Vietnamdrive! We didn’t have much time to arrange the tour, and Ms. Golda assisted us in planning an exciting 8-day tour in Vietnam. Everything went smoothly, the guide was enthusiastic, and the food was tasty. Typically, our driver Mr. Minh in Danang City is friendly and knowledgeable. Our trip was interesting. We are happy to recommend you to friends when they want to visit Vietnam.
