Hi Explorogists, and welcome to Hanoi! This city is the starting point of our fantastic trip to Vietnam. These 14 days together will be full of surprises… Ready?

Let’s go! As soon as you arrive at the airport, you’ll meet our local guide. Follow him; he’ll transfer you to the hotel. Once you arrive at the hotel, take time for you: relax or enjoy the city. Don’t worry, dear Explorogist, we also think of your stomach. A welcoming Vietnamese dinner will be prepared for the whole group. “Ăn ngon miệng.”

Inlcuded: Welcoming dinner

Day 2 : A bit of history

Today, we’ll take time to discover some monuments full of history. Our local guide will show you the Hoan Kiem lake situated right in the heart of Hanoi as well as the Temple of Literature. You’ll also see Quan Thanh and Ngoc Son temples, a pagoda, and the mausoleum of Ho Chi Minh: the president. Of course, we’ll embark on a typical cycle rickshaw to enter more deeply into the Vietnamese culture.

For our lunch, we’ll taste ChaCa: a Vietnamese specialty! Once our belly is full, let’s go on with the ethnography museum. Photos, videos, traditional houses from the 54 Vietnamese ethnic groups are exposed! Finally, we’ll spend the evening in an water puppet show theatre. Enjoy the performance!

Night in the middle of rice fields…
