Trip itinerary

  1. Hanoi (Vietnam)

    1

    Blaring horns. French Colonial buildings. Picturesque lakes. And the smell of incense in the air. Welcome to historic Hanoi! We’ll be kicking off the fun in Vietnam’s second-biggest city. Say xin chao (sin chow) to your travel buddies and then head to a local eatery to gorge on goodies like bánh mì, pho, spring rolls and egg coffee – trust us, it’s tasty. Then: make a beeline for Bai Hoi (aka Beer Corner). No need to guess how this place got its name. Pull up a roadside stool and get to know your crew a bit better over a few cold ones. This is gonna be good.
