Arriving into Vietnam's vibrant capital, begin your adventure learning about the traditional art form of puppetry with a behind the scenes workshop from seventh-generation puppeteer at his home before exploring the streets of Hanoi's Old Quarter on foot and taking in the 11th Century Temple of Literature.

Leaving behind the bright lights of the city, venture onto the countryside to the picturesque village of Ky Son. Staying at a local homestay, enjoy a hands on cooking class and take a bicycle out amongst the rice paddies, stopping off at a local farming household for a cup of tea and trying your hand with the seasonal activities of rice farming.

Continuing on through the bucolic landscape, arriving in the picturesque Mai Chau Valley surrounded by spectacular karst rock formations and rice paddies. Enjoy a traditional music and dance performance before venturing out to explore this astonishing area and its regional ethic minority villages.

Travelling onwards, the scenery just keeps on getting more spectacular. Journey through Cuc Phuong National Park to the juggle covered karst mountains of Ninh Binh where you will enjoy a traditional sampan ride through this dramatic landscape along the river before a hopping on two wheels for a journey through a spectacular scenery of rice fields, karst formations and quaint rural villages.

Next up is perhaps the most iconic of Vietnam's extraordinary landscapes with an overnight cruise around Halong Bay before flying down to the ancient capital of Hue. Uncover the diverse history of this region with a cyclo ride through its Imperial Citadel and ancient Thien Mu Pagoda.

After journeying by local train over the beautiful Ha Van Pass, end your exploration at the UNESCO World Heritage ancient port town of Hoi An. Cycle along quiet lanes passing by water buffaloes lazing in the fields and spend a morning with a local family.  Join local farmers in the rice paddies, learning how to plough and sow the fields, pulling up the rice seedlings and transplanting them to larger fields before joining your hosts in the kitchen to create a tasty home cooked lunch.

Pay a visit to the Lifestart Foundation in the heart of Hoi An's old town, where under their guidance, create your very own handmade lantern - a lasting memory of the morning's insightful visit.

With a final day at leisure to explore the picturesque ancient streets, beautiful surrounding countryside or simply relax on Hoi An's stunning beaches, say farewell to this astonishing country.
