Culture Trips in Vietnam 2024/2025

Immerse yourself in the vibrant culture of Vietnam by joining one of our cultural tours in this beautiful country. From the Temple of Literature to Sapa to the Old Quarter of Hanoi, there is so much to explore and learn on a cultural trip to Vietnam. Visit the Imperial City in Hue and then the War Remnants Museum in Hanoi. Both these places have huge cultural significance to modern-day Vietnam—one showing the older, imperial past of Vietnam and the other dealing with the darker war-torn period. A Vietnam culture trip can easily be combined with one of our Vietnam walking tours, where you can explore the historical and cultural landmarks, vibrant streets and marketplaces. You can wander around from the Cu Chi Tunnels in Ho Chi Minh City, which soldiers used in the war to get around in secret. You can rent a scooter or a motorbike in Hanoi and zip through the traffic to visit the local sites and attractions with relative ease.

Incredible Trip to Thailand
5 - Excellent
  • Leshia Burgin
“It was truly a wonderful experience coming to Thailand. I booked my own flight to Bangkok but the flight was canceled and rescheduled to the next day at the last minute. I tried to contact the agency to inform and was really surprised because they wholeheartedly supported me to rebook all services and did not charge us any fees. This tour to Thailand was absolutely wonderful, the guide was very knowledgeable All was on time, and the time spent in Phuket was really worth it. Thank you local travel expert.”
Vietnam Adventure and Angkor Wat
5 - Excellent
  • Anonymous
“This was an excellent tour which enabled us to see and experience the many faces of Vietnam. It was fairly "full on" with some early starts but this was necessary in order to cover so much in the time. At the same time, it didn't feel rushed and there were plenty of opportunities to explore on your own. The Angkor Wat extension, which 4 of us did from our group, was definitely worthwhile and certainly lived up to its reputation as one of the wonders of the world. It needed the nearly 3 days to do it justice. Being in Siem Reap and then Phnom Penh gave us chance to experience the differences between Cambodia and Vietnam. May be one extra day might have enabled some further exploration of other aspects of Cambodia such as the fishing villages but overall the balance was very good.”
Our Private Paradise
5 - Excellent
  • Drusilla Davis
“No idea how we came across this tour operator, but I’m glad we did. My wife and I had a wonderful trip to Vietnam and Thailand. The whole trip was organized to fit in with the guidelines we gave. All the guides and drivers turned up on time and showed us the countries they love. We would highly recommend this company!”

Culture Trips in Vietnam

Highlights of Cultural Trip in Vietnam

  • Cruise down the ancient Perfume River during your trip to the Imperial City in Hue. Along the way, you can hear traditional Hue songs, see the sunset, and get great views of Imperial-era architecture.
  • Soak up traditional architecture, filled with columns, wraparound porches, and opulent tiling, and find movie magic at the Binh Thuy Ancient House in the Mekong Delta. This house has been used in dozens of movies and is a beautiful example of traditional French-Chinese-Vietnamese architecture.
  • Meet locals and grab souvenirs at the Ben Thanh Market in Ho Chi Minh City. Popular traditional and culturally significant items include hand-woven and painted silk scarves, which have poetic imagery of popular Vietnamese cultural stories on them!
  • Visit the pagodas of the Marble Mountains, including the most famous, the Tam Thai Pagoda. Many temples and pagodas in Vietnam were built by Mahayana Buddhists and Nguyen Dynasty Kings.
  • Enjoy a cultural sightseeing tour of Hanoi. This bustling metropolis has attractions, including the One Pillar Pagoda and the illustrious Presidential Palace!

Travel Tips for Vietnam Culture Tours

  • Be respectful of the local customs. As many of the cultural trips in Vietnam will include religious places like temples or pagodas, make sure you are dressed modestly.
  • Do not plan your visit to cultural sites during public holidays, as many of them are closed.
  • Tip your guides for their services during your Vietnam culture tour.
  • Keep an eye on the traffic. If you are on a walking cultural tour in Ho Chi Minh City or Hanoi, remember that the traffic and bikes are a law unto themselves. Pay close attention to your guide when crossing the streets.
  • Dive into the street food scene during your Vietnam trip, as food is a huge part of the country’s culture.
