HA NOI CAPITAL

Ha Noi is the second largest city of Viet Nam which population is 8 million people. The city lies on the right bank of the Red River. Ha Noi is a very busy and picturesque city, with its green boulevards in the Old Quarter, lakes and hundred of French colonial era buildings. The city is always busy and crowded while Ha Noi people are very elegant and easy going- as easy going as Hanoian. Taking a rickshaw tour around the Old Quarter to discover life of the local is a great idea. Ha Noi is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Viet Nam

SAPA

Sapa is a mountainous town in the North-West of Viet Nam. Sapa is home of many ethnic groups such as Hmong, Dao, Giay, and Tay. It population consists mostly of ethnic minorities groups, the Kinh (Viet) people take 15%. The climate of Sapa is highly seasonal and wet season (also rice season) is from May to September. Compare to other small-town tourist stops-most notably Hoi An on the Central Coast — Sapa is still consider undeveloped but is particularly refreshing when travelling in Vietnam. Trekking down the villages of the Black Hmong and Red Dao people to behold the beauty of ripe rice terraces (look like yellow tapestries) is an unforgettable experience…

HA LONG

The karst seascape of Halong Bay is one of the world’s most spellbinding sea views and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Thousands of limestone islands sit within this bay in the Gulf of Tonkin, eroded into jagged pinnacles by wind and water action over millennia. With the bay’s scenery best seen by boat, this is prime cruising territory. Opt for at least an overnight tour to see Halong Bay’s iconic views as a day trip doesn’t do it justice. There are plenty of caves in the bay that can be entered including the Hang Sung Sot, with three mammoth caverns, and the Hang Dao Go, with superbly weird stalagmites and stalactites. For most people though, the highlight is simply cruising amid the karsts and soaking up the changing scenery of pinnacles as you pass by.
