Trip itinerary

  1. Hanoi (Vietnam)


    Blaring horns. French Colonial buildings. Picturesque lakes. And the smell of incense in the air. Welcome to historic Hanoi! Meet your fellow explorers and kick things off with a DE-licious street food tour through the Old Quarter. Our in-the-know Trip Leader will take us to all the local spots for goodies like bánh mì, pho, spring rolls and egg coffee – trust us, it’s tasty. Then: head to Bai Hoi (aka Beer Corner). No guesses how this place got its name. Pull up a roadside stool with a cold Bia Hà Noi and get to know the gang – we might be a mixed bunch, but we’re all in it together. Cheers to that!

Other Information

This Delve Deep adventure’s all about experiencing the REAL Vietnam and Cambodia. Meaning? Some flexin’ when it comes to sleeping arrangements. We're talking two nights travelling the authentic way – aboard a sleeper train! The 4-person cabins are communal only, and bathrooms are basic but functional. 

Rooms are also shared at our homestay in the Mekong Delta. And on our Halong Bay overnight cruise, there’s the possibility that you might be bunking with an extra trip mate if you selected twin-share accommodation.

    Would have loved to stay longer in places however we were still able to do everything. I think the trip notes need to be updated as some of the optional activities weren’t recommended, as well as needing a more detail itinerary as we only knew what we were doing the night before.
