Reiseprogramm



Day 1
Ho Chi Minh City
Xin chao! Welcome to Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. Your adventure begins with a welcome meeting at 6 pm. Please look for a note in the hotel lobby or ask reception where it will take place. If you arrive early the day is yours to explore Ho Chi Minh City. If you arrive early, perhaps head to Pham Ngu Lao Street to see the local open-aired market or visit Vinh Nghiem Pagoda.

If you can’t arrange a flight that will have you arrive in time for today’s welcome meeting, you may wish to arrive a day early so you’re able to attend. We’ll be happy to book additional accommodation for you (subject to availability). If you’re going to be late, please inform the hotel reception. We’ll be collecting your insurance details and next of kin information at this meeting, so please have these on hand.

An arrival transfer is included. In order to book this service please provide your booking agent with your flight details at least 2 weeks prior to your departure.

Day 2
Ho Chi Minh City
Start your tour of Ho Chi Minh City with a visit to the Reunification Palace. Formerly known as the Presidential Palace, it was the site of South Vietnam’s surrender at the end of the war. Next, head over to the War Remnants Museum where you’ll see old military equipment including an F5A fighter and a UH1-Huey helicopter. Finally, you’ll tour the famous Cu Chi Tunnels. This former Viet Cong stronghold provides an insight into the resourcefulness and tenacity of the Vietnamese people, as well as underground life during the Vietnam War.

Day 3
Hoi An
Say goodbye to Ho Chi Minh City and fly to Danang. From here you’ll make your way to My Khe Beach a beautiful spot which lies against a backdrop of the Marble Mountains. This location was significant for both the Americans and the Vietnamese during the war. After a visit to the Marble Mountains, continue to Hoi An where you’ll stay for the night.

Day 4
Hoi An
Your leader will take you on a walk around Hoi An’s Old Town today. The city was a major trading port from the 17th century onwards, and has various architectural influences from Europe, China and Vietnam. Today the city is being restored and looks exactly like it did over a century ago. The tour will take you to a historic house, the Japanese Covered Bridge, a Chinese assembly hall and a museum. The rest of the day is free for you to do some optional activities or soak up the ambiance of the place. You may like to wander the street stalls selling paintings, woodwork, ceramics, lanterns and much more. Hoi An is also famous for its talented tailors who can make beautiful items to order within a few hours.

Day 5
Hanoi
This morning, transfer to the airport and fly to Vietnam’s charming capital of Hanoi. You’ll be taken on a guided half-day tour of Hanoi, visiting major sites such as the Temple of Literature, One Pillar Pagoda and the former residence of Vietnam’s most famous revolutionary, Ho Chi Minh. The tour will also include lunch at the KOTO cafe, an amazing project which provides vocational training for underprivileged young people. You’ll have some free time this afternoon. Hanoi is a strangely quiet city compared to its southern counterpart. Escape from the noise by visiting the various parks and lakes, or hire a bike and cycle around town for the best view of the city.

Day 6
Halong Bay
Drive for four and a half hours to the famous Halong Bay, one of Vietnam’s most spectacular natural wonders. We recommend leaving your luggage at the hotel in Hanoi and packing a small overnight bag for the trip to Halong Bay. Once you arrive at the bay, you’ll take a long and luxurious cruise through the area, exploring the beautiful green waters and amazing limestone caves. You may also have the opportunity to go swimming from Ti Top Island beach. You’ll spend the night on the boat. The traditional junk-style boat has twin-share cabins with air-conditioning and private facilities. There’s also a dining room and bar where you’ll enjoy all of your meals, including a lavish seafood buffet for lunch.

Day 7
Hanoi
Take a three-and-a-half bus ride back to Hanoi. This afternoon take in a unique water-puppet performance. This evening is free for you to explore this delightful city. Why not relax at a cafe or stop for a bia hoi (freshly brewed draught beer) at one of the microbars in the Old Quarter?

Day 8
Hanoi
Your trip comes to an end today. There are no activities planned and you are able to depart the accommodation at any time. Please check the ‘Finishing Point Hotel’ section for checkout times and luggage storage possibilities.

Make sure you double check your itinerary and details and compare to what the tour guide details
Denise Fisher
Excellent value and great introduction to Vietnam
Johanna Dziadkiewicz
Intrepid is such a great company to travel with. I love their ethical approach to the places we visit, and their guides are always knowledgeable and great to travel with.
Cheng Zhang
Excellent tour, got to see a lot in short amount of time. Well organised and well run. Lead by knowledgable guide
Wendy Clark
I would highly recommend the Treasures of Vietnam 8-day tour for people who want an introduction to Vietnam. I only had limited time, but found that it provided a great overview of 3 main regions and some very interesting attractions.
Catherine Lengyel
Adventurous travel with like minded people in small groups. Choose your comfort and adventure levels which define activities you do. Flexibility of tour guide and itinerary is a great attribute that all intrepid tour leaders seem to offer. thank you again for a wonderful holiday.
Nicola Haberland
An outstanding trip, so many experiences in such a short time. Hoi An was a firm favourite from the bike ride to ordering my tailor made dress. I will certainly remember this trip forever.
Richard Kennedy
Great trip that really gave you the highlights of Vietnam. Hoi An was an amazing place.
Shane Timms
Holiday went smoothly from planning to finish. The small group size allowed us to experience more and with greater interaction with the Vietnamese people.
Heather Blackie
This tour is a fabulous full on nonstop 3 weeks covering 3 countries. As it is a combination trip I have 3 different tour guides and 3 different groups. There was only one other person who I started in Bangkok with came all the way with me to Hanoi. It is a brilliant way to get an experience of these countries. There were many highlights from the moving Hellfire Pass to the beauty and tranquility of Angkor Wat at Dawn. Friendships have been formed and life time memories made.
Ian Blackett
The Treasures of Vietnam tour was fast paced and a great way to see the main highlights we had set for ourselves. The information and tour guide kept us informed and helped us understand Vietnam. The Bahn Mi's weren't bad either. Thanks Intrepid.
Fatema Jamil
This is a great trip if you wish to visit Vietnam in relatively short time. We combined with Cambodia and saw the main highlights in less than 2 weeks. It is comfortable with good hotels and no long journeys and suitable for those with limited time
Heather Blackie
I did this tour as the third leg of the Classic South East Asia tour. It is a very short but informative tour of Vietnam which I thoroughly enjoyed. Our tour leader Ohat Huynh was excellent and ensured that our journey was safe. The night on Halong Bay is a wonderful escape from the hustle and bustle of Hanoi. Learnt a lot about the history and culture of the country and now think I will return for a longer tour.
Darshika Patel
great jam-packed tour
Kirsten Hillyer
A great trip for those who do not have a lot of time but want to see a lot. It is very fast paced but wonderful. Do not forget a hat, sun cream, and bug spray. It is a lot of airplanes but way better than a bus or a train because you have more time in each place. It is a perfect snapshot of both Cambodia and Vietnam.
Natalie Dowle
As a first time Intrepid traveler, I had heard great things from friends and was very encouraged to join a tour. I had the opportunity to be in Vietnam for a relatively short timeframe, and this tour was a standout way to ensure I saw so much of the country as I did not expect to return again. This tour helped me to explore a country and get immersed in its culture, and it has arguably been one of the best trips I have ever done (and I am an avid traveler!) I will absolutely do an Intrepid tour again and will recommend it to anyone. It’s a liberating experience as well to go on your own and join a tour group - I recommend it for the soul!
Olivia Timmis
Intrepid makes seeing the world a breeze, packed into a short tour you still see so much of the country you visit. With a nightly helpful tour leader you are unstoppable. I highly recommend intrepid and will be travelling with them again.

Just do it
Sara Gilbert
Excellent introduction to Cambodia and Vietnam- plenty to go back and see more but made it the most of the whirlwind time frame. Fun, informative, attentive and organised local leaders made incredible guides during the journey.
Madeline Towers
Intrepid were amazing! They handled everything from booking to coming home. I felt extremely safe whilst travelling and could ask our travel guide anything as he knew the answer to all questions about Vietnam. I 100% encourage everyone to book with intrepid! :)
Holly Hazel
My best travel experiences to date have been with Intrepid, and I recommend them to anyone I can. I love the local and sustainable focus the tour guides are able to give. Thank you to the whole Intrepid team for making sure this experience is excellent from start to finish!
Allison Greenheck
Intripid is a good balance of free time and group time. We ended up spending most of our free time with the group because we got along so well.
Al & Rosanna Nolan
We went to Cambodia & Vietnam with Intrepid and would have no hesitation in recommending both trips. Everything to do with the trips was wonderful largely due to their excellent tour leaders Sambath & Mao who were both cheerful, kind and extremely knowledgable and organised everything so well.
Kathy Strachan
This is my second trip with Intrepid and both times were excellent. By using local guides, you get to experience the local culture personally. The tour guides have been fantastic, very accommodating and seem to be able to organise anything. Love that Intrepid prefer to use locals instead of big companies, eg, when staying in a hotel, get the local across the road to do the washing. Helps spread the tourist income around equally. Will definately travel with Intrepid again and highly recommend Intrepid to anyone.
Isabel Thomas
Fantastic tours, so inclusive, great friendly guides with so much knowledge. Highly recommend.
Helena Gifford
Taking an Intrepid tour for the first time. We were very unsure. Yet it took all the stress out visiting another country. Giving great information and also tips on where to eat etc.
Reinah Urqueza
The perks of a small tour group: You arrive as strangers and leave with friendships and memories to last a lifetime.
Rebecca Hone
Great experience, and flying between cities in vietnam was fabulous! Our tour guide was outstanding, and I loved this trip.
Joy Rosenwax
My experience with Intrepid was amazing. Being a senior traveller I had a few reservations about travelling on my own, so, chose to travel with a group. Our leader had so much knowledge and was so passionate about his country that we soon became eager each day to go on our next adventure. It was a beautiful country and we got swept up in the beauty and energy of the people who strive so hard to look after their families and lead a happy and productive life. Thank you Intrepid and our wonderful leader Thao for this amazing experience, we will definitely return.
