Hanoi, the capital of Vietnam, and also its second largest city, is a fascinating blend of East and West, combining traditional Sino-Vietnamese motifs with French flair. It is largely unscathed from the decades of war, and is now going through a building boom, making it a rapidly developing city in Southeast Asia.

Halong Bay

Located in northern Vietnam, Halong Bay is famous for its scenic ocean karst topography and is often included in lists of natural wonders of the world. The Halong Bay archipelago is made up of 1,969 islands, both settled and uninhabited. This unique UNESCO World Heritage Site is a popular place for tourists and it is good to know that large parts of Ha Long Bay are officially protected from development. The islands vary greatly in size and shape as well as structure. Visitors might want to allow a few days to explore this magical bay as its attractions are extremely numerous

    "Thank you so much, Vietnamese Private Tours, for an unforgettable trip. I am not a big fan of traveling with a tour company, but as I did not have much time to organize things, my friends and I chose Vietnamese Private Tours and we do not regret our decision at all. The organization was very professional and Minh, my tour guide, was so helpful, friendly, and funny. We laughed a lot. We had great local food and a lot of nice experiences. I did not even realize that I was going with a tour company, it felt like traveling with real friends! I hope to have you on my next trip!"
