We will be in Hanoi for 5 days including travel dates, arrive at 10:30 am on the first day, and depart at 7 pm on the last day.

Other activities that we are interested in are cycling, hiking, visiting local markets.

Hello I was looking at the "Northern Vietnam Highlights for Family 6 Days". How much trekking does the whole tour involve and how difficult is it? I noticed that day 3 includes full day soft trekking. Also, is it possible to customize the tour (e.g. start from day 2)?


Dear Nisal,

Thanks for your question. 

There is not much trekking on the tour. You will have a short walk around the sightseeing places on Hanoi city tour on the second day, and ride a bicycle on the third day. 

We can customize the tour, so you can join the package tour from day 2.

4 days is such a short time for these 3 places, however, you can still visit these places during that time

Day 1: Hanoi city tour - Night train to Lao Cai

Day 2: Sapa tour 

Day 3: Sapa tour - Transfer to Hanoi

I have 8 days to visit the north of Vietnam. Please recommend the itinerary for the tour in April 2022. Is the weather is great to travel?


Hi Byron,

Thanks for asking

I would recommend Hanoi, Halong Bay, Sapa/Mai Chau, and Ninh Binh for your 8 days in the north of Vietnam. 

April is a great time for the north of Vietnam when the weather is not too cold or hot. 

Many thanks
