This itinerary is faster paced, covering the main highlights of Vietnam in just over a week. There is some driving involved, however we mostly fly to maximise your time in each destination. Be sure to book extra time in Ho Chi Minh City or Hanoi if you want more time to explore these cities.
Visiting the Cu Chi Tunnels is an incredible experience of life for the Vietnamese during the war. Going inside the tunnels is optional, and can be a little claustrophobic for those who don’t like small spaces.
There is some walking involved on this trip, with walking tours in the downtown areas of each city, as well as walking in the caves in Halong Bay.
In Vietnam, the temperature varies greatly between north and south. While there is no best time of year, it's best to check the seasonal patterns on our country information page to see what the weather will be like when you go. This way you can prepare well for your trip

This trip is fantastic if you only have a week in Vietnam. You see all the highlights and in a comfortable way. Hoi An and Halong Bay are a definate must and very enjoyable. Having local tour guides also makes the experience better as their local knowledge is great. The optional activites offered are a great opportunity to experience local life, cooking classes and kayaking Halong Bay! A must see and do!

Gave us a great overview & experience in the places we saw. As it is a shorter trip we wouldn't recommend to those wanting extended times & a bit more of a relaxing holiday. Would definitely use Intrepid again.
