Vietnam stole my heart

(5.0)
“My recent 10-day trip to Vietnam was a whirlwind of productivity and cultural immersion. The journey began in Hanoi, where I immersed myself in the chaotic yet charming atmosphere of the Old Quarter. I could wander through narrow alleyways, I stumbled upon hidden temples, vibrant markets, and experienced street food stalls. Each day brought a new culinary adventure for me, from steaming bowls of pho to crispy banh mi sandwiches, that's all awesome and strange! Next, I ventured to Halong Bay, where I boarded a traditional junk boat and sailed amidst the iconic limestone karsts. Kayaking through emerald waters and watching the sunset over the horizon was a surreal experience. And Hoian, Bana Hills, Eco Tour were the highlights of my trip, actually, I love all of the places in the itinerary. So, I think I will be back as an adventure traveler, Vietnam has more special things to explore :)”

My son love this trip so much

(4.5)
“Traveling to Vietnam with my family was an unforgettable experience! From the moment we arrived, we were greeted with warmth and hospitality. Exploring the bustling streets of Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City together was a delight – we sampled delicious street food and even tried to bargain in the markets. One highlight of our trip was cruising through the mystical landscapes of Halong Bay. The kids were mesmerized by the towering limestone karsts and emerald waters, and we made memories to last a lifetime as we kayaked through hidden coves and explored remote islands. In Hoi An, we were charmed by the streets with colorful lanterns. We spent days wandering through the ancient town, admiring the architecture and indulging in local cuisine. Of course, no visit to Vietnam would be complete without exploring the rich history of the country. We were deeply moved by our visits to the Cu Chi Tunnels and the War Remnants Museum, where we gained insight into Vietnam's tumultuous past. But perhaps the most precious moments of our trip were the simple joys of spending time together as a family – whether it was sharing a meal at a roadside stall, watching a traditional water puppet show, or simply soaking in the beauty of Vietnam's landscapes. Traveling to Vietnam with my family was an enriching experience and one that we will cherish forever. It's a destination that truly has something for everyone, and we can't wait to return. Last but not least, thank you Asia Links Travel for making my family trip more happy!”

“The most memorable of my trip to Vietnam was joining a cooking class with my friends, it's was the first time I tried to make Vietnamese food but I found it sooo difficult, that's why VN food has become the top flavor in the world? We had a great time in Vietnam, learning about history and people's lifestyles. And the agency took care of us and followed us throughout our journey, thank you a lot!”

A paradise to enjoy nature and food in Vietnam

“We got a little bit tired because the weather changed and my health couldn't handle this. Luckily, my tour guide and consultant always took care of me during the tour, also helped me a lot. Vietnam was such a wonder of nature, but if you have a bad health condition like me, I recommend another short tour to enjoy more fulfillment :(”
