Anyone who has ever visited Hanoi will probably tell you that it may be the most beautiful city in all of Asia. People have settled here along the Red River for a thousand years. Nestled along wooded boulevards among the city’s two dozen lakes you will find architectural souvenirs left by all who conquered this great valley, from the Chinese who first came in the last millennium to the French, booted out in our own century and the lakes are one of the attractions that many tourists visit.
Itinerary Vietnam tour
DAY 1: HA NOI – BA BE LAKES (L/D)
7:00am: Start Vietnam tour journey. Pick-up from your hotel in Ha Noi in the morning and driver to Bac Kan Province. We might make several stops wherever you want to take photos and visit sightseeing places and villages along the way. Short break in Thai Nguyen city to visit the museum of the cultures of Vietnam’s ethnic groups. Opened in 1959, the museum of the culture (Vietnam Museum of Ethnology) of Vietnam's Ethnic Groups is no doubt one of the best museums in Vietnam, though regrettably it still sees relatively few foreign visitors. It contains important collections relating to the history and ethnology of the wider Viet Bac region, including costumes from all of the major ethnic groups, together with an extensive collection of agricultural, handicraft and hunting tools and more than 4,000 documents, exhibits and pictures relating to all aspects of Vietnamese civilization. For about 3 hours ahead before noon that we can arrive at the destination, we will stop at Bac Kan town for lunch. Then around 3.00 pm, we arrive at the village of Tay minority people inside the Ba Be National Park. Checking-in our homestay and refreshing by a short leisurely walk in the park around, maybe some swimming if the weather permits. Back home for dinner, then a talk on local culture or customs before bedtime. Overnight at Homestay
DAY 2: BA BE LAKES BOATING & NATIONAL PARK TREKKING (B/L/D)
Wake up by the bird chirping, this will be the scarce moment of tranquility where we feel very close to nature and isolated from bustling cities. Breakfast then start discovering the subtle and imposing beauty of the area just on the local boat. We glide along the lakes, river and through the pretty cave to a powerful waterfall, the whole journey offers great natural scenery. After lunch at a food stall nearby the waterfall, we boat back into the tranquil Ba Be lakes for its majesty. And it is really refreshing to go swimming here. You may have the possibility to go on a short trek with our guide to one of the small Tay villages scattered around the lakes on the land. Rest of the afternoon, Hua Ma Cave will be a good place worth a visit. Hua Ma Cave can be regarded as the Phong Nha Cave in the North. With 10m high and 500m depth, Hua Ma Cave offers a great space for a fresh air inspiration.
Dinner and stay overnight in the same home stay at Ba Be Lake.
