Saturday. Welcome to Hanoi! Airport to hotel arrival transfer. Free time to explore.
Overnight: Hanoi

Day 2

Junk boat cruising

Hanoi – Halong Bay. Take a moment to picture in your mind some two thousand rugged karst islands dappled with lush vegetation seeming to float on top of pristine emerald coloured waters and you have the natural wonder that is Halong Bay. This morning a scenic drive will take us to this beautiful UNESCO World Heritage Site where we will enjoy a junk boat cruise.

Based on traditional designs, these wonderful vessels combine oriental style with modern luxury. Soak up the panoramic views from the sundeck as the boat gently plies its course, this afternoon we will visit the spectacular Tien Ong Cave which was recently opened to the public in 2010, with its stunning stalagmites and stalactites.

Later this evening back on board, watch a Vietnamese cooking demonstration held on the sundeck before settling down for a sumptuous seafood dinner.

Day 3

Floating villages and cyclo rides

Halong Bay - Hanoi - Hue. Early birds can start the day with a relaxing Tai Chi class on the sundeck or a traditional massage - the perfect way to start the day. Before heading back to port we'll explore by kayak the Floating Village of Cua Van, which is home to generations of fishing families. Here we’ll see the traditional and colourful floating wooden houses and the locals going about their daily lives.

On our arrival back into Hanoi mid-afternoon we'll explore the maze of streets known as the ‘36 streets of the old quarter’, named after the numerous guilds that once set up shop on a particular street from silk tailors to silversmiths. Travelling by cyclo (rickshaw), the quintessential mode of transport in Hanoi, we'll see traditional narrow-front tube houses with the chance to sample some of the local delicacies sold on street stalls from ripe fruits to steaming noodle dishes.

Later this evening there's a chance to freshen up before boarding the train (4 berth sleeper cabin, basic standard) on the ‘Reunification Express’ railway line to Hue. An option to fly from Hanoi to Hue is also available.

Day 4

Imperial Hue

Upon arrival to Hue we embark on a guided sightseeing tour of the 19th-century Nguyen empire capital. We visit the Thien Mu Pagoda, home to the oldest monastery in the city and the citadel. Within the citadel is the Imperial Purple Palace, an exact copy of the Forbidden City in Beijing, with its impressive ramparts, formal moats and imperial palaces, some of which lay in ruin.

After we drive into the countryside to see the elaborate mausoleums of the Nguyen kings. As the sun sets opt for a cruise in a long boat along the gentle Perfume River or enjoy some retail therapy at the ever lively Dong Ba Market, a minute's walk from our hotel.

Road of the Ocean Clouds

Today we take the scenic Hai Van Pass (Road of the Ocean Clouds), which offers magnificent views of beaches to one side and lush hills to the other, to Hoi An.

Compact Hoi An with its cobbled streets, tiny shop houses and laid back restaurants and bars is a perfect place to relax a while. On a short walking tour of the enchanting historical town, we’ll visit the Chua Ong Pagoda, Chinese Assembly Hall, 200-year-old Tam Ky house, former merchants’ homes and the 400 year-old Japanese Covered Bridge.

This afternoon we explore incredible and iconic Angkor Wat, easily the most famous and best-preserved of all the temples within the Angkor complex. It is a massive three-tiered structure crowned by five lotus-like towers rising 65 meters from ground level. Believed to be the largest religious building in the world, Angkor Wat contains thousands of wall carvings and extensive bas-reliefs. Spend the evening at leisure.

The last temple we visit is Tra Prohm, swallowed by the jungle, vast muscular roots envelop the crumbling towers and walls of the temple whilst the trees’ foliage dapples it in shade.

We had 3 tour guides and all were first class. Their local knowledge was excellent.

They were always friendly and very helpful. Our tour guide in Vietnam Sy almost had a mutiny on his hands when he told the group the overnight boat trip on Halong Bay had been cancelled due to bad weather. As you can image after a 5 hour journey only to be told it was cancelled was extremely disappointing and we had to turn around and endure another 5 hours back to Hanoi.... not a happy group but Sy did his best and arranged a couple of other activities which, for me were not of interest as I had already done them on a previous visit and the only reason to visit Vietnam again was to go to Halong Bay. Bit disappointed.

This was my first group tour - and I have to say it could not have been better. Both my son and I had an excellent holiday and it lived up to all our expectations. Every little detail was thought through. All three guides were excellent. They were all very knowledgeable and friendly. Our flight to Siem Reap was cancelled - and we missed half a day, but Vannak was excellent in making sure we did not miss seeing anything as per our itinerary.

All in all a fantastic holiday and I can't wait to travel with On The Go again in the future.

Not having travelled to SE Asia before, I think that the tour covered all aspects of a very real Vietnam from Hanoi with its sights and smells and chaotic traffic, to Hoi An with its crafts, markets and it's lanterns that transform the town at night and on to the busy Mekong region and Ho Chih Minh City with its historical influences.

Hung provided excellent commentary with humour and great knowledge. He explained the various battles of many emperors of centuries long gone to the more recent problems of his country and its battles to survive. He gave great insight into the customs and traditions of the ordinary Vietnamese people. He spoke well and gave time to answer many questions. An excellent tour guide.

Tuan was an exceptional tour guide in Vietnam. Definitely set the standard for remainder of the Tour. Tour guide in Sein Riep was also good but not as involved and attentive as Tuan. Overall the tour was vey good. Lowlights were the Mekong delta and the border crossing into Cambodia. Highlights were definitely Chu Chi tunnels, overnight train and Halong bay as well as listening and learning about the Vietnamese culture from the tour guide.

The tour was outstanding thanks to our excellent guide Tuan! His sense of humour and fun games made the time fly when we had long drives. He kept us all on time and made sure our bags were loaded! Every bit of it was meticulously orchestrated. This was my first tour with a group and the bar was set high. I saw more in 15 days then I did the previous 2 months on my own. We had 18 in our group from all different countries and that just made the experience so much better. When we got to Cambodia we had to change guides, Nena and Ra were great. The only thing I would change would be to pack lighter. There is a laundry day half way through the trip. I would highly recommend this tour, in fact some folks only toured Vietnam and they wished they had stayed on for the rest.

This trip was epic, fantastic!

The journey across Vietnam and Cambodia was mesmerising, beautiful and moving all at the same time.

Our guide across Vietnam was Hung, who was simply amazing. His knowledge, humour, and organisation skills were top notch. We learnt so much about the country and the people from him.

During our first few days in Cambodia we had Long as our guide, who again was such a warm and knowledgeable guy. His personal family stories relating to the Killing Fields will long live in the memory.

If you decide to go on this tour be prepared to be "on the go" for most of the 15 days.

From the extraordinary beauty of Halong Bay, Hoi An, and Angkor Wat, through to the emotions of The Killing Fields, war museums and tunnel complexes - this trip will consume you.

Do it!

I can't recommend this trip highly enough. Plus our guide (the lovely Tuan) was so knowledgeable and really took the time to look after for the whole group. We all bonded with him (and his lovely children - who he skyped while we were all out one evening) This is such a good way to see the highlights of the whole country. It is a very busy schedule but without this you wouldn't be able to see or experience as much of this beautiful country. I would definitely recommend this trip for anyone wanting to explore the country who has to manage their holiday leave from 'the office'

Book and enjoy, hopefully you will have Tuan as your guide too! :-)
