NOTE: This trip was inspired by our 8-day Treasures of Vietnam trip.
Stretching 1,650 km from north to south, Vietnam is packed full of wonderful sights and experiences that are not to be missed. Because of this, coming up with an itinerary that fits such an array of beauty and culture into just a week or so can seem pretty daunting. But if you’re short on time and don’t have much annual leave, you don’t need to worry.
We’ve compiled a handy seven-day guide for your whistle-stop tour of Northern Vietnam.
From big cities brimming with foodie fun, to landscapes so surreal they will blow your mind, Northern Vietnam sure won’t disappoint.
Day 1: Sapa
We start in Sapa – our northernmost location, close to the border with China. This region is home to many indigenous hill tribes and is well known for its hiking.
