Why Book this tour
This three week adventure is perfect for travellers with more time to spare and who want to really get under the skin of the destination. The tour features all the main highlights from our Inside Vietnam (VN) holiday, but also takes you deeper into less visited areas such as the Central Highlands region where you will encounter tribal people. You also have the chance to spend two nights on a boat in Halong Bay and therefore able to venture further away from other tourist boats and also two nights on a boat in the fascinating Mekong Delta, a truly great place to watch the local life go by.
