Northwest Vietnam Tour

The northwest can be one of the most beautiful parts of Vietnam and for any Vietnam tours. The well-known destinations are Mai Chau valley, Son La, Dien Bien, Lai Chau, Sapa and the surroundings with amazing scenery of mountains, corn fields, rice terraced paddy fields and many ethnic minority groups and villages dotted by the side of mountains. Tourists to the northwest of Vietnam can also sink deep in interesting history, unique cultures, way of living... that seem unchanged for hundreds of years.

Who like to visit northwest of Vietnam?
Based on our experience, the French and the ones who like Vietnam adventure tour, outdoor activities such as trekking, hiking...really love to explore this part.

Hotels in the Northwest Vietnam?
Many people sent us an inquiry, asking for overnight stay in 4-5 star accommodations for the Northwest loop but this is impossible because, there are no 4 or 5 star hotels during the tour (except for Sapa), so doing this tour, tourists should be open – minded and not care if it is an overnight stay in a basic hotel or homestay with the local family.
