If you want to take stunning pictures of Vietnam, you have to go to Bac Son Valley, one of the most beautiful landscape in the North of the country.
I choose a private tour 2 days 1 night with driver and English speaker guide (but other languages are available) with Hello Vietnam Travel. This is the cheapest that I found but very professional. We visited the top of a mountain, where is possible to see a 360 degrees view of the valley. We stayed in the best homestay just in front of the mountain and the family was very kind. Of course, the level is under that of a hotel but the experience is more authentic. The morning we enjoyed the sunrise and go around the valley by bicycle. The place is not touristic at all. I absolutely recommend this tour.
Our stay at the Chalcedony has been a very pleasant experience - the correspondence. I had prior to our visit has been nothing but professional. I had the city day tour with a guide of Hello Vietnam Travel, who was very knowledgeable in the history of this city and a Halong bay cruise.
You can choose flexibility time and where you wanna go, they will provide everything as your request. Make your trip more wonderful in Vietnam. Just write and ask them, then meet you up from the airport to start your trip. Very pleasant trip and wonderful memory.. will back and use the same service but different trip.
This trip I went to Sapa and see how wonderful staying in the homestay there, the kindness of the people in Sapa is really wonderful, I love this place so much.
Also visited Ninh Binh, although not in good timing, but I love the place that the travel suggest, and will be back again in right time.
Hanoi , itself always being a city with crowded but will make you missing the place, the hospitality and the romantic places around the city, enjoy good coffee, good view and nice walking trail along the old quarter. Relieving days from the works and enjoy the vacation here.
