Itinerary

Hanoi: Day 1-2

We’ll pick you up from the airport, get you checked in and introduce you to your new travel buddies. There is no better way to get settled in than a walking tour through the narrow streets and tasting some of the local flavours. Once we’ve stuffed our faces it’s time to jump on our 3 wheeled rickshaws to explore the rest. By night we head to ‘Beer Street’, grab a stool and see where this crazy city takes us!

Ha Long Bay: Day 3

Today we jump aboard a traditional Junk Boat and cruise through 1 of the 7 natural wonders of the world - Ha Long Bay. Once all settled in, we enjoy lunch with the most incredible views...just epic! This afternoon we adventure through caves on kayaks and cool off with a swim before sipping cocktails for sunset 🌅

Ninh Binh: Day 4-5

We wake up onboard before adventuring further off the beaten track to Ninh Binh - home of the recent King Kong movie ‘Skull Island’. Allow us to introduce you to our local friends at our family homestay...it doesn’t get much more local than this! Day 5 is an adventure cycling through the untouched countryside, cruising on traditional paddle boats & 360 views of the Ninh Binh Valley from the Dragon Mountain.

Hue: Day 6

We spend our short time in Hue visiting the poorer more rural communities. Our Vietnamese guide educates us on local life and gives us an insight into the work that we are doing at Feel Free Travel to support children in these areas and their education. Hue is the cultural centre of Vietnam and the gateway to the most iconic road in Vietnam - the Hai Van Pass. We cruise the pass in open top jeeps taking in the mountain views and stopping at some of our favorite spots to cool off.

Hoi An: Day 7-9

Jump out of your jeep and you’re in one of our favorite spots in South East Asia. Our time in Hoi An will be filled with a cooking class on the river, spinning around in bamboo basket boats, making your own lantern, enjoying some chill time on the beach or even visiting a local tailor to get some super cheap clothes made! The lantern city will steal your hearts with jaw dropping beauty and artsy vibes.

Nha Trang: Day 10

After a short flight to Nha Trang, we’ll arrive at our accommodation and head out for a truly unique experience. The mineral mud baths in Nha Trang really do sound crazy... but once you’re in you won’t want to get out! As much as it is great for your skin it’s great fun too!

Mui Ne: Day 11-12

Welcome to the beautiful beach town of Mui Ne, famous for its fishing villages and Sahara-like dunes. After exploring the town and sipping cocktails by the pool we’ll make our way to Vietnam’s very own Grand Canyon - ‘The Fairy Streams’. For some people this is the moment you have been waiting for...sandboarding and quad biking* on the epic sand dunes of Mui Ne...there is no better sunset than this one!

*Quad biking is optional and not included in the trip

Ho Chi Minh: Day 13-15

You’ve never seen so many motorbikes in your life! Let’s explore the city by foot and feast in the local flavours of the south before heading to the deeply moving National War Museum. Take a peek at the underground life of the infamous Viet Cong soldiers at the Cu Chi Tunnels. Learn how these warriors lived beneath the soil using tunnel networks...you can even explore the underground tunnel systems yourself. Get ready for our last night out together experiencing some of South East Asia’s best nightlife!

Before the Trip

Aim to Arrive Early

We always suggest arriving a day or 2 early to allow extra time to recover from that long flight. Of course it’s not essential but we have a bunch of ideas to spend that extra time, whether it’s wandering around, day trips or overnight adventures. We’ll also hook you up with other early arrivals to give you someone to hangout with.

Your Arrival Details

Once you’ve booked your flights, head to the Check In Area and update your arrival details. This will help us plan for your arrival and so that we can be waiting for you when you arrive.

Travel Insurance & Visa

It’s super important that you get yourself covered for your trip with us. It’s not expensive and certainly does give you and your loved ones peace of mind. Be sure to check any visa restrictions before you leave. If you’re unsure then let us know and we will do our best to help.

When I Arrive

Your Airport Pick Up

No matter what time you arrive, we will always be there to pick you up. All our trips include airport pick ups so be sure to update your arrivals details through the Check In Area.

What time to arrive on Day 1

We always recommend arriving earlier rather than later on Day 1. This gives you time to nap, freshen up and recover from that flight. In the evening we will head out for dinner and drinks with the group.

Pre-Night Accommodation

You can add extra nights accommodation at the time of booking or by letting us know in the DM’s. We will get you booked in at the accommodation where we start to save any unnecessary moving around.

After the Trip

Getting Back to the Airport

If you want to be super organised, at the final stages of booking your trip, you can select the ‘Return Airport Transfer’ option. Whether it will be a taxi, ferry or a domestic flight we will have you safely back to the airport. If you just want to sort it whilst you’re there then your Group Leader will help you arrange your transport back to the airport after the trip.

Onward Travel

Don’t worry... you won’t be left on your own after the trip finishes. Some people are just on a short break from work and others are on a slightly longer backpacking adventure. Either way your Group Leader will help you plan anything from a return airport transfer to giving you a bunch of awesome ideas for the rest of your time in South East Asia, Australia and New Zealand.

Extra Nights Accommodation

Looking to stay a little longer after the trip and need accommodation ideas? Or fancy extending your stay at our final stop? Let us know early and we can try our best to extend your stay so that you don’t have to worry!

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I come alone?

Yes, absolutely. It’s very common for us to get solo travellers on our trips. As soon as you land in Vietnam we will pick you up and introduce you to the other group members. It’s a great way to make new friends and share the adventure with like minded travellers.

Can I contact other people who have booked onto the same tour as me?

You sure can! Travelling is about meeting new people and sharing the adventure. We have a Facebook Group ‘The Feel Free Family’ where you can get chatting to other group members that have booked or others like you looking to book! Click HERE to join the group 🙂

Is it safe to travel Vietnam?

All in all, Vietnam is an extremely friendly and safe country to travel for both male and female travellers. Just like most other destinations in South East Asia, Vietnam holds it’s reputation for having some of the world’s most heartwarming people despite a few pushy street vendors 😉

Travelling in numbers is always recommended rather than going alone.

What’s included in my Vietnam tour?

Check out ‘The Details’ tab for a breakdown…but all accommodation, trips & activities, local guides & western group leader, transport and a bunch of meals are included. You only need to sort your flights to & from Vietnam, get travel insurance and bring some spending money!

How much spending money do I need?

You don’t need much at all considering almost everything is included! We suggest no less than £300 to be safe…some people spend less and some more, it really depends on your spending habits. If you love shopping or prone to a few more big nights than the average person you could spend more. You can spend far less if you are tight with your budget but this kind of average works well for most.

Are flights to Vietnam included in the price?

International flights to & from Vietnam are not included in the tour price. We can definitely help when it comes to planning flights, so if you are unsure then drop us a message and we can help. We’ll be at the airport to meet you when you land and we offer return airport transfers if you want to go down the hassle free approach. This can all be selected during the booking process.

Which Airport to Arrive

The trip starts in Hanoi so it's best to arrive at Noi Bai Airport (HAN). If you do find cheaper flights arriving into Ho Chi Minh City (SGN) then you can always book an extra domestic flight from Ho Chi Minh to Hanoi. One of the crew will be waiting with a big smile to get you checked into our Hanoi accommodation.

Is This For You?

If sandboarding, street food, basket boat fishing and of course partying with the locals gets you excited...this 2 week Vietnam trip is definitely the one for you! Most people travel solo or others bring a friend, either way by the end of this adventure you’ll have a bunch of new buddies for life.
