Vietnam Discovery: 9-day Group Backpacking Vietnam Itinerary

Looking for the best time to visit Vietnam? We've got you covered.

Let us build you the Vietnam holiday of your dreams!

Do you long for a taste of the Vietnamese culture, but don't have a lot of time? Our Vietnam Discovery tour has your name all over it! 

Engorge your senses in incredible cuisine (nothing beats a bowl of fresh Phở) before heading on a backpacking journey through Hanoi, Halong Bay and Sa Pa - and hitting up all of the highlights along the way. You may be short on time, but you will be anything but short on adventure! 

Additional Information: Our Vietnam Discovery tour is set to travel alongside our Vietnam Explorer tour. With this being said, on occasions some departures will be running independently. To check if your departure is travelling alongside another, please feel free to contact us via the website chat.
