Trip note
Guests should note that this is a cultural tour of the country, therefore there will be visits to various places of worship, which may require respectful dress and behavior. Female visitors must often wear clothes covering much of their skin – and nothing too revealing.

Hoi An is famous for its tailors – and most will make you anything you desire in under 24 hours! Be sure to have a look and see if there is anything suitable for yourself.

As this tour covers a vast area of the country, you should take note that the north of Vietnam can be cold in the winter. Therefore, if visiting late or early in the year, you should bring a varied range of clothing, as the south has a more year round tropical climate.

Attention:
The itinerary may be subject to change due to the unfavorable weather conditions
