Vietnam is ripe for active holidays, but the cultural side of the destination should never be side-lined. After exploring the country’s best adventures, we realized that they go hand in hand with colorful cultural opportunities and the people that bring flavor to the experience.
In Sapa, where we’ve been operating for over two decades, we don’t just take you from village to village on exceptional hikes. We also give you the chance to learn something about the local people that make the destination so special in authentic local homestays. Vietnam’s cultures are remarkably varied, and it’s a fascinating experience to try and dissect that diversity.
In Lan Ha Bay we make the effort to explore Cat Ba, the area’s most culturally rich island and with the largest concentration of floating villages. The bay is of course beautiful, but understanding how it’s made a home for tens of thousands of people makes for a more profound experience.
In Hue and Hoi An it’s about more than gawping at the wonderful architecture and learning about the awesome history of these two cities. We’ll take you to meet the traditional families that have called these places home for generations. In Hanoi, we can arrange dinners with local English-speaking families who are delighted to share experiences.

“I love the simple things when I travel, like sitting outside a local coffee shop soaking up an amazing sunset over the Thu Bon River in Hoi An, or a steaming bowl of Hu Tieu with all the toppings on a Saigon sidewalk. I can’t wait to share with you our beautiful landscapes, friendly people, stunning cuisine and more in Vietnam.”
