✡Why you’ll love this trip
➥A cyclo tour of Hanoi is an excellent introduction to bustling inner-city Vietnam, and the novelty of travelling on these three-wheeled wonders is a thrill for all ages.
➥There’s a great mix of included activities and free time, which is perfect in atmospheric destinations like Hoi An, with the beach just a short bike ride away.
➥Halong Bay is more than an amazing and unique natural wonder – it’s a proper escape from the world around you. Sleep under the stars on a comfortable cruise boat and enjoy a sumptuous lunch and dinner on board.
➥By dining at KOTO in Hanoi, you and your family will not only feast on delicious northern specialties, you’ll be supporting a cause that helps support disadvantaged youth with careers in hospitality.
➥One of the many advantages of group travel is the social aspect, and kids often have playmates, giving you a little more time to relax.
✡Is this trip right for you?
➥This is Vietnam, so days are hot and sticky, and nights can get quite cool! Be sure to wear layers, use adequate sun protection and drink plenty of water.
➥You and your family will visit a number of temples on this trip, and it’s important to respect the local custom. Arms and knees should be covered. A light scarf is a good idea for covering shoulders and arms when it’s hot.
➥Be prepared for basic shared facilities at your Mekong Delta homestay (Day 11). The lack of creature comforts is, of course, a small price to pay for such an authentic local experience.
➥Your overnight train journey from Hanoi to Hue (Day 4) is quite long. The upside is, you’ll wake up in a thrilling new destination and experience travelling like a local. While bedding is supplied some families opt to bring their own sleep sheets.
