Luscious green rice terraces in Sapa Vietnam

Make Sapa your hiking headquarters

Sapa is the lively traveller hub of the Vietnamese highlands. The authentic atmosphere is well known, but it’s still a great place to spend a few nights and the scenery is just staggering. Our Railways and Rice Fields of Sapa trip uses Sapa as your base, from where you can enjoy our private trek, setting your own pace, through the hills and valleys, packed with panoramas at every turn. En route, you’ll come across several minority hill tribes, crisp mountain waterfalls and more tiered rice terraces than you can shake a stick at.

Ramble through the rainforest on Phu Quoc Island

Phu Quoc Island is a tropical hideaway stranded in the waters south of Ho Chi Minh City. It’s barefoot bliss, with untamed sandy beaches and natural springs, swaying palms and clear waters. Almost 70% of the island is designated national park, and the jungle-clad interior is great trekking territory. Here, you can hike through the mountainous rainforest, stumble upon natural springs and stop for refreshing dips as you go.
