During this trip, there will be several long days of travelling and you'll be sitting on a bus for many hours at a time. However, road trips often have the best views, and most private buses feature wi-fi.
Two nights of this trip are spent on overnight sleeper trains with journeys of up to 12 hours. Although the conditions are basic and you'll be sharing a compartment with four to six people, this is the best way to maximise your time spent at various destinations.
This trip involves a lot of walking - on city walking tours, the hike in Da Bac and during included activities. While being on your feet can be a bit tiring, this is the best way to truly get under the skin of a place.
You'll be spending two nights in different homestays with a Vietnamese family. While the accommodation is shared and basic, this is a great opportunity to connect with the local people (and enjoy delicious home-cooked meals!)

Traveling with Intredip was an amazing experience. We were immersed in the geography, history, culture, food and people of Vietnam. Our guide and additional local guides ensured we experienced the authentic Vietnam. Everday brought so many new experinces that made this an expectional trip. So authentic was out trip that we never felt that we were part of a tour group. Our heart felt thanks to our guide, TV and Intrepid.

This trip is perfect for those who want to experience the best of Vietnam. It includes a wide variety of cultural, historic, food and natural exploration. It offers enough freedom without the stress of finding your own transport and accommodation and getting into places and experiences which would be hard to find by yourself. The opportunities for local interaction and exploring more remote regions are the highlights of this trip.
