1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?


There were so many! Exploring the Mekong Delta, taking time out in Hoi An and Ha Long Bay stick in the mind.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?


The overnight train - you sleep in your clothes so no need to worry about nightwear! Also train facilities are good. You can manage a larger case than the tour company suggest - we took overnighters because they said pack light and struggled for space.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


Yes it did, we met so many local people and we did the best we could by reducing the amount of plastic water bottles used.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?


Excellent, came home feeling I know so much more about Vietnam, would feel comfortable traveling there again.

Responsible Travel

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) vacation so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.

Planet

This trip introduces travelers to the wonderful country of Vietnam. Our adventure begins aboard the Reunification Express, which allows you to marvel at the breathtaking scenery as well as to befriend local travelers. On this trip there are also plenty of opportunities to interact with the locals and learn about their way of life, for example we visit the Dong Trieu Factory to watch locals working on the traditional art of ceramics, we also visit some local houses to experience the everyday life of Mekong locals.

We always stay and eat in small-scale locally-owned establishments and every year we audit the places we use to make sure it complies with our Responsible Travel Code of Conduct to ensure minimum environmental impacts. We always use energy saver keys in hotels, for example.

We supports a number of charity projects in Vietnam including the Cuc Phuong National Park Conservation centers, which is dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation, breeding, research and conservation of the endangered primates of Vietnam, and the Saigon Children's Charity, who’s mission is to provide the poorest children with the education and training that will give them a fair chance in life.
