  • The climate in northern Vietnam is characterized by 4 distinct seasons: spring, summer, autumn and winter. The northern region will experience hot and humid weather with heavy rainfall in summer, and in winter it is cooler. There may be snow in mountainous areas such as Ha Giang and Lao Cai.
  • Choose a prestigious travel agency: Northern Vietnam is vast with several mountainous areas, so consider using a travel agency, so you don’t have to worry about transport and accommodation.
  • Bring insect repellent, as northern Vietnam covers many mountainous areas.

At present, all these memories are well preserved in the relics, temples, pagodas and museums that spread everywhere, have become proof of the long history of the country and the favorite attractions of tourists. In addition, the diversity of culture is also a strong point of the North.

Sharing the border with 2 countries (China and Laos) and having different geographical features with coastal areas, deltas, central regions, highlands and mountains, the culture here is diverse with 25 cities and provinces, about 20 ethnic groups using different languages, traditions and ways of life. By booking a North Vietnam tour, you will have the chance to experience a glimpse of this colorful and mysterious land, and of course, there will be no regrets.

Hanoi: the capital of Vietnam, the largest city in the North.

There are many types of tourist routes available in the north, from short to long, from relaxing to adventurous, we will learn some details below:

Short Itinerary (4-5 Days): Perfect for a leisure trip between Hanoi and Halong Bay where you don’t have to embark on an adventure to explore the bay, a comfortable overnight cruise can totally take you to help. The cultural tour is also best if you decide to travel in a short time to the north to learn more about local tradition, religion, way of life and stories, such as Hanoi or Sapa.

Long route (7 – 14 days): in-depth overview of the northern part, ideal for an adventure tour on a motorcycle or on a hike.

You can take a motorbike tour in Hanoi instead of using a private car, shuttle or walking to get around the city or taste delicious street food at night. Your heart also beats faster on a motorcycle tour through mountainous areas with small roads and dangerous winding passes.

The type of trek is the typical circuit in the remote region of northern Vietnam. Depending on your abilities, you can choose to choose from easy to difficult trekking with different destinations and routes.

On the other hand, Sapa seems to be a highlight for treks in Northern Vietnam and is the challenging destination for any trekker with routes that can be so long, exciting and challenging that it takes you 3-4 days to conquer.

Far North itinerary (> 15 days): available for those who want to discover all regions of Northern Vietnam to learn culture, history and experience local life. You will cross from Hanoi, Halong, Ninh Binh, Mai Chau, Son La, Sapa to Ha Giang, Dong Van, Meo Vac, Babe Lake…

An enchanting odyssey in Vietnam

Nicole Carey

Our 12 in Vietnam was an enchanting odyssey filled with love, discovery, and unforgettable moments. From the bustling streets of Saigon to the serene beauty of Halong Bay, every day brought new adventures and cherished memories. Your attention to detail and thoughtful arrangements of the honeymoon package enhanced our experience. It struck the perfect balance between cultural immersion, relaxation, and romantic moments. We left Vietnam with our hearts full of love and gratitude, knowing that this was a honeymoon to remember for a lifetime. Once again, thank you so much!

Heartfelt thanks for an incredible tour

I want to extend my heartfelt thanks for our incredible tour. The organization was top-notch, and everything ran seamlessly, with drivers and tour guides always punctual. Their pleasant demeanor and generally good command of English greatly enhanced our experience. The hotels we stayed in were excellent, offering delicious food at all times and situated mostly in convenient locations. Once again, I am grateful for such an enjoyable holiday. A special thanks to you for your invaluable advice and endless patience with my continuous stream of questions.

Still great, highly recommend!

The first trip after covid 19 pandemic, 2nd time I worked with Alex, he was always great with everything we needed in Vietnam. The staff at IDC Travel always go the extra mile to please their customers. I would not hesitate to book with them again and definitely recommend the company.

Well looked after


May 1, 2022

We were well looked after by Alex from the start. He built the itinerary, organised hotels, transfers, trips and then during the trip his team was excellent.  

Very well organised tour!

We contacted Alex a few months prior to our travel to organise a private tour to the Northern Vietnam (Hanoi, Halong, etc). As we neared the date, we had to make some changes as pandemic has caused some changed on our travel plan. Alex is always very responsive and very flexible with our queries. Our trip was very well organised and everything went very smoothly. All the accomodation was booked according to our preferences. The driver and tour guide was very courteous and experienced. If I have to nit pick, I would probably say that the tour guide could do more with giving us more information about our activities. For example, when we did bike tour, it would be great if he warned us that we will be passing through the major road and sharing traffic with cars and trucks. Or how long the walking tour through the village going to be. Overall, we are very satisfied and I do think the tour is value for money, very well organised, and the staff are more than happy to cater for our needs.  

Personalized Tour – Organized, Responsive, and a Great experience!

I found IDC travel online because of the good reviews, and after a day of inquiring, Sir Alex responded right away with a detailed itinerary tailored to our preference! He is very responsive and accommodating with our needs, especially during our travel. Our trip in vietnam was organised, smooth, and really enjoyable! Even the organization of the itinerary and payments went smoothly. Some few comments would be agreeing to the previous review, like having the tour guide give us advices/tips about maybe the weather, what to wear, what to expect during the tours or anything important to bring if necessary so we could prepare better in terms of outfit, what to bring, etc. The drivers are very nice, but it would be even better if they greeted/welcomed us once we arrive. One driver did not have proper signage so we were waiting for quite awhile. Nevertheless, Sir Alex listened to our concerns and came up with solutions right away. Overall, we are very satisfied and it was great value for our money too. We booked another tour with them for Thailand this August. We cannot wait to book with them again in the future.

Beyond satisfied

Amazing 8-day trip from South to North Vietnam

Keith Turner

August 12, 2022

Alex helped me organize a wonderful trip for my family! He helped me a lot, from choosing locations and activities to shopping and dining details. Our trip was amazing. The tour guides were so enthusiastic. Our hotels were booked in the middle of crowded streets in the downtown areas, which allowed us to explore at night and enjoy the lively local lifestyle. In addition, the trip was reasonably priced and customized to meet our needs. We are grateful to you, Alex, and we can't wait for our next visit.  

Over my expectation

Lupe Skiles

I highly recommend this tour to anyone who travels alone and just has a short-day trip like me. It was so well-organized with 10 days traveling from North to South Vietnam and visiting all the typical places here : Hanoi, Ha Long Bay, Ninh Binh, Hoi An, Ho Chi Minh City and Mekong Delta. Everyone I met was so nice: my guides, all the new friends that I made, and local people. The service was excellent. I'm really happy with my hotels during the trip, so clean and lovely. Thanks for a great tour!
