Meet the Locals, vietnam trip

Meet Northern Vietnam

Traveling to Vietnam is different from traveling in Vietnam. Many people travel to a country, but few people travel in a country, meeting the locals, learning how they live their lives, plow their fields or raise their families. For the truly adventurous, this trip allows you to stay in charming village home stays, walk along rice fields, take boats along narrow canals, kayak in Halong Bay, and truly get to know the Vietnamese people on their level.

Lodging on this trip varies widely from simple home stays to, if you wish, the luxurious Sofitel Legend Metropole in Hanoi. In Halong Bay, you have a private cruise on one of the lovely Bhaya boats. Thus, you can stagger the simple with the beautiful as you travel the country.

This is truly a trip for those who want to delve into a culture and come home with many new friends.
