7 ways to see Vietnam off the beaten track

Our holidays to Vietnam are designed to include the best mix of must-see highlights and hidden gems. Offering cultural diversity, a rich history, awe-inspiring landscapes and mouth-watering cuisine, it’s not difficult to see why Vietnam is one of our most popular destinations!
Experience the very best of Vietnam and take the route less-travelled, whether by two wheels or on two feet.

Cycle the Hon Giao Pass
Take the exhilarating cycle up, over and down the Hon Giao Pass on a Vietnam bike tour. Cycle through the hills of the Langbiang Plateau before taking on the Hon Giao Pass ascent through pine forests and dramatic mountain scenery. The highlight for most is the exhilarating 30km of virtually uninterrupted descent, ending with a well-deserved lunch.

Walk amongst the lush rice terraces of Pu Luong
Trek through the rice terraces of Pu Luong, Sapa’s quieter, lesser-known little brother in northern Vietnam. These are among the best rice terraces in Vietnam.

Stay overnight on a junk boat, Halong Bay
Wake up to towering limestone karst scenery and jade-green waters on an overnight junk cruise in Halong Bay. Eat fresh seafood on board, and pull in at a beach to swim or kayak in the glittering waters.

Cycle alongside the tropical waterways of the Mekong Delta
For some of the best cycling in Vietnam, try riding through the Mekong Delta, renowned for its lively floating markets, lush mangrove forests and dwarfing pagodas. Experience the back roads and hidden trails of this special water world from the saddle.

Wake up in a tented camp overlooking the shores of serene Lak Lake
Spend a night in a tented lodge near the shores of Lak Lake, and take a relaxed boat ride aboard a traditional pirogue – a long, narrow canoe carved from a single tree trunk.

Walk through the back alleys of Old Saigon
Unearth the history of the modern dynamic city of Ho Chi Minh city on a walking tour through Old Saigon’s back alleys. Visit the thriving markets, flower shops and cafes, and discover the Secret Weapons Bunker.

Take an overnight train along the coast
Mingle with the locals on an overnight train journey along Vietnam’s coastline between Hanoi and Hue. Pack snacks, playing cards and your sense of adventure!
