A truly an excursion to discover the cultural and natural charms of the historic Hanoi and authentic Sapa highland town. See the diversity of Vietnamese culture during 5 days of experience and discovery!
Welcome to Vietnam. Upon arrival at Hanoi Airport, obtain your Vietnam visa, and then clear Immigration and Customs. After collecting your baggage, exit the airport to meet outside a local Guide.
From the airport, you will be privately transferred to your lovely hotel.
Cultivating the land to an altitude of around 2,200 meters are the ethnic minorities the lowland Vietnamese generically call ‘Meo’ – savages – and above them looms the bulk of Hua Xi Pan: “giant protruding rock”. You can challenge yourself when hiking 600 stone stairs more to reach the rocky peak of The Roof of Indochina.
Then, we walk through rice terraces and on local paths to the Zay village of Ta Van.
This is the only village in the Sa Pa area where the Dzay people live. We spend time looking around the village.
Closed by, the famous One Pillar Pagoda which is built of wood on a single stone pillar 1.25 m in diameter.
It is designed to resemble a lotus blossom, which is a Buddhist symbol of purity, since a lotus blossoms in a muddy pond. The mausoleum is the last resting place of Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam’s great revolutionist.
It is a symbol of gratitude and respect of Vietnamese people for president Ho Chi Minh. The Ho Chi Minh Museum is the preserver of everything memorable related to Ho Chi Minh.
The Museum consists of five extensive floors and was inaugurated on 2nd September, 1990, celebrating the 100th birthday occasion of the beloved President.
Admire buildings of the temple, including the Pen Tower, the ink-slab,
the Moon Contemplation Pavilion and the Pavilion against Waves,
all of which has symbolic meaning.
It is an area well-known for the history, the architecture, the enormous amount and diversity of products and even the everyday life of its residents.
The Old Quarter is a reminder of Hanoi’s storied past-its history has long been tied to the ebb and flow of conquerors and traders over the past thousand years.
Continue with Hanoi Street food tour through wet market to grilled pork, fried pan cake, Vietnamese traditional bread, dried beef salad, mixed fruit, Hanoi beer, dessert sweet soup or coffee with chicken egg (you can eat as much as you can - pay on your own).

Most countries in South East Asia require you to obtain a visa. Please check carefully with your travel specialist regarding specific visa requirements for each country you plan to visit as the legislation does change frequently. Thailand offers a free visa on arrival to most nationalities. Other countries including Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia and Myanmar offer a “visa-on-arrival” service which requires you to pay a fee at the airport, or you may prefer to obtain this in advance through the relevant embassy or a visa agent. For visa-on-arrival in Vietnam, you must submit some paperwork before you arrive.
This is an option to get your visa for Vietnam instead of getting visa at the Vietnam consulate in your country.
Step 3: Send the visa approval letter via email to you after 2 working days
After we obtain the visa approval letter from the Immigration department for you, we will forward you a scanned copy of it by email (Your visa information then have been recorded to the Visa system of the Vietnam Immigration department).
Step 4: Get your visa stamp on your arrival
Just print the approval letter out, prepare 2 passport sized photos and an amount of USD for stamping fee ($45 for single entry visa; $65 for 1 month multiple entry visa and $95 for 3 multiple entry visa). Put all above mentioned things along with your passport in a package, then show them to Immigration officer at Vietnam arrival airports.
Upon arrival at Vietnam’s airport, expect a simple form to fill in (or you can download here to fill beforehand), present the visa approval letter, passport, photos to the Immigration officer inside the counter and look for a place to hear your name be called to get the passport back and pay for the stamping fee. The actual process takes around 15 minutes without hassle or trouble.
What are the differences between this process and getting visa at Vietnam embassies?
It is only applicable for those who travel to Vietnam by air. You only need fill out the visa application form online instead of visiting the Vietnam embassies or sending documents to Embassies over by post.The online visa application does not require sending your passport away.You get a visa approval letter issued by Vietnam Immigration Department indicating that you are allowed to enter Vietnam and have your visa stamped upon arrival at one of Vietnam international airports.
