Adventure across Southern Vietnam and the Central Highlands, from Ho Chi Minh to Hoi An
From the hustle and bustle of the big smoke to off-the-beaten-track hill villages, experience the many colours of Vietnam's rich cultural tapestry on this Southern Vietnam adventure. Discover the extraordinary war remnants and tantalising street food of Ho Chi Minh City, the French charisma of Dalat, the folk history of the Central Highlands and the old-world allure of historic Hoi An. In between, trek through the forests of the Central Highlands to the villages of Ede and M'Nong people, who invite you to stay overnight in their homes. This is an active, eye-opening adventure you won't forget.

Discover a slice of Paris in the East in the picturesque town of Dalat. Explore the opulent summer palace of Bo Dai and stop in at the mouth-watering local market
More than just a stepping-stone to the hills, Buon Ma Thuot has a top-notch cultural museum and arguably the best coffee in the country
Trek through the lush forests of the Central Highlands, where homestays in tiny villages give you a rare insight into rural life and ethnic minority cultures
Enjoy a guided walking tour through the atmospheric streets of Hoi An's historic Old Town, one of Vietnam's most charming destinations
There is a considerable amount of walking involved on this trip. A good level of fitness is required, and you'll need strong, sturdy walking shoes, especially for the trekking portion.
You will stay in simple homestays for two nights in simple, multishare accommodation, with shared bathroom facilities. The experience of spending time with the local people will be more than worth it, not to mention the home cooked dinners prepared by your hosts.
This is South East Asia, so be prepared for some balmy conditions. The Central Highlands, where your hiking takes place, tend to be cooler than the cities. At any rate, be sure to drink plenty of water and use adequate sun protection.

Intrepid travel do Viet nam very well. I thoroughly enjoyed my nine day tour ... a little off the beaten track tour is well worth it in terms of knowledge and experience. It is good to avoid the tour crowds as much as possible and intrepid delivered on this adventure. Thanks for your service.

I learnt that bug spray is better than lotion as they are capable of getting under the clothing. The people that had spray could spray over the clothes to help. When trekking ankle boots are not as comfortable and would suggest shorter boots. A sleeping bag liner is very useful at home stay. You can never have enough water, always carry more
