Embark on a classic city tour, exploring iconic landmarks such as the Temple of Literature, Hoan Kiem Lake, and the bustling Old Quarter, where you can sample local delicacies and witness daily life unfold.

Next, venture to the breathtaking landscapes of Sapa, nestled amidst misty mountains and terraced rice fields. Lace up your hiking boots and trek through picturesque villages, encountering colorful hill tribes and immersing yourself in the rich cultural tapestry of the region.
