North Vietnam

Charming Towns, Mountain Tribes & Delicate Cuisine

Why visit North Vietnam?

Rugged Countryside

Northern Vietnam's charm, beauty and seasons set it apart from the rest of Vietnam. It's rugged mountainous countryside is home to winding mountain roads, lush green rice terraces and a patchwork mosaic of green fields tied together with sprawling lakes and narrow rivers. The broad and beautiful views, winding roads and friendly locals make it perfect for cycling or motorbiking. Day trippers can taste their slice of countryside by visiting charming Ninh Binh and Tam Coc. Those with a little more time can spend a few days trekking with the colourfully dressed ethnic minority tribes in the foothills of Sapa.

Peaceful Ha Long Bay

In the North East the the patchwork green farmland turns into an emerald green ocean with rugged limestone karsts jutting out from the sea. The most infamous place to explore the ocean views is peaceful Ha Long Bay. Travellers can take a two or three day boutique or luxury cruise through the emerald bay. Feasting on deck, kayaking through caves, relaxing on beaches and enjoying the world class views.

Charming and Chaotic Hanoi

At the heart of Northern Vietnam is the charming and chaotic capital city of Hanoi. Heavily influenced by French and Chinese Occupation, the city holds a rustic old world charm to it you will not find anywhere else. The winding streets of the Old Quarter are throbbing celebration of city life and street food culture. Every inch of pavement is packed with food stalls, coffee shops, bia hois and street merchants. To the north of the city the cultural district holds some of the country's best museums and the glistening sea like West Lake provides stunning views. Hanoi is also our home. Our HQ is perched at the side of one of Hanoi's hundreds of lakes, just near the Hanoi Club Hotel.
