Famed for its breathtaking scenery made up of limestone mountains, valleys and paddy fields in all shades of green, Northern Vietnam is abundant in both incredible landscapes and fascinating culture.
Many ethnic hill tribes reside in the northern mountainous areas near the China and Laos borders, where many off-the-beaten-track treks and experiences await you in the Ha Giang and Sapa regions.
Perhaps the country’s biggest attraction of all, Halong Bay lies off the northeast coast and is a popular spot to take in the limestone karsts and caves scattered around the bay. Often overshadowed by its famous neighbour, Bai Tu Long Bay is an equally beautiful and more peaceful alternative.
A visit to the north would be incomplete without experiencing the charm of Vietnam's bustling yet charming capital and main hub in the region, Hanoi. Travel south of the city and you’ll uncover land sprawling with paddy fields, rivers weaving through caves and protected reserves.
Northern Vietnam has something to offer every traveller with a range of budgets and travel styles. Speak to our experts and see how you can discover the best of this incredible region on your tailor-made Vietnam holiday.
