Day 3 Mekong - bike to local market Coco Riverside Lodge
It is now time to leave the hectic city and venture out into the scenic Mekong Delta. After breakfast our driver will drive you the three hours to Vung Liem out in the delta.

After lunch, the afternoon offers a bike ride. You cycle along quiet small roads, past duck gardens, through rice fields, reed forests and countless small villages. Along the way, you visit a dragon fruit plantation and can also taste the fruit in the garden. You will also visit the local farmer Mr. Cong. Here you will see how he makes the unique and nutritious food-popped rice (a kind of rice popcorn), he will also show you the mix of traditional and modern farming methods used today.

The afternoon ends with a visit to the neighbor. Here, a war veteran will perform traditional Vietnamese music - in torch lighting - the torches are the local Poon Sticks.

Day 4 Deeper into Mekong Coco Riverside Lodge
While enjoying your breakfast, the Vietnamese have already loaded their boats and are on their way to the markets and factories with especially coconuts. The traffic on the river is lively, children sailing to school, the adults at work or to the Cao Dai temple.
On today's trip you can experience at close range how coconuts are processed at the factories.

Lunch back at the lodge when you are back from today's boat trip.

In the afternoon, along with the guide, you cycle out and see how the locals process rice and we also visit the more than 200-year-old Chua Xu Temple, where locals and visitors from other provinces come to pray. The bike tour continues through fields, over canals and with stops in beautiful villages before returning to the lodge.

Day 5 Hoi An on your own Hoi An Garden Villa
Today you are on your own in Hoi An and here is plenty to look at. The old town is intersected by canals and you can find everywhere traces of the many traders who have visited the city for centuries. Portuguese, Dutch, Arab, Chinese, French - everyone has been here and left their mark. With the many interesting buildings from the different eras, it is natural that the city has the status of a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Sailors have been shopping here and got their clothes sewn in Hoi An since the city's heyday. The harbor is sandy to-day, but it still teems with good and cheap tailors who sew on purpose and deliver from day to day. Is it in Hoi An you need to renew your wardrobe?

Day 9 Hanoi on your own Hong Ngoc Dynastie
Vietnam's capital, Hanoi, is like a living museum; a fascinating insight into an ancient Asian city, but still sparkling with energy and the pace of a modern city.

Motorcycles, pedestrians, bicycles and cars are in all directions around the narrow streets, while tourists gently try to navigate between them. Trying to cross the road is a challenge in itself and requires a bit of nerve the first time you do it! But quickly you learn a stable pace and only have a look for the things going on in front of you is enough to move safely.

Everywhere there is activity and noise. All life seems to take place outdoors on the busy streets; work, eat, cook, play, create, feed babies, laugh or just sit and talk.

Get up early and go for a walk around Hoan Kiem Lake at. 5 in the morning, and you will experience how the locals start the day with various forms of exercise.

Remember to go to one of the numerous street food places and enjoy local food.
Day 10 Minorityvillage Nam Cang in Sapa Topas Riverside Lodge
Early in the morning, Topas Mountain Express will pick you up at the hotel in Hanoi, and then head off to Thanh Phu Bridge and Nam Cang, where, after a short walk through the village, you will be heading for a late lunch in the comfortable Nam Cang Riverside Lodge.

In the afternoon we explore a typical village inhabited by the Red Dao people. We are in the more pristine end of the Sapa area, and here the Red Dao women still carry some of the most colorful and richly ornate costumes among all of Vietnam's ethnic groups.

Red Dao especially unfolds their talents in healing baths, natural medicine and embroidery. Along with the local guide, you explore the village and see how the Red Dao produce rice paper, silver jewelry and embroidery.

Back at the lodge you have the opportunity to try one of the healing baths with special herbs that your host has collected in the jungle, which begins just behind the house. A very special and life-giving experience.

Dinner is served at the log's large wooden table or on the terrace overlooking the river.

If you want a little further around, you have the opportunity to borrow one of the lodge's good mountain bikes.

You can also take the bus to Sapa, the nearest major city and a tourist and local center in the area. It is also possible to take a half-day trip to the highest mountain in Indochina, Mt. Fansipan (3.143 m.h.) with a newly created cable car.

Day 14 Cruise in Lan Ha Bay La Pinta
After breakfast, it's time to head for Lan Ha Bay. Lan Ha Bay is the neighboring bay to the more famous and crowded Halong Bay. In Lan Ha you have the same impressive nature, but share the space with fewer people.

You will be driven directly to the sea and the pier, where a smaller boat will take you to the larger ship, which will sail around Lan Ha Bay. The ship will also be your home the next few days, and therefore you get a good introduction to the ship and the safety aboard during the welcome drink.

Along the way to Cat Ba Island, you sail past lots of small islands, through canals and out through the Cat Ba National Park. Hundreds of beautiful limestone cliffs rise up from the sea, birds of prey circles and fishing boats churn back and forth.

After a delectable lunch with everything from the sea, caught right outside, there is a gangway on Cat Ba Island, where a bus takes you to Trung Trang cave in the protected forest in the middle of the island. On a short guided hike in the forest you will be introduced to the national park and the tropical nature.

Then there is the possibility of bathing and kayaking.
Back on the boat, the chefs will introduce you to traditional Vietnamese cooking. Maybe you will learn a few new tricks that can dup home in Denmark…

Dinner is served on board.
After dinner, try the squid fishing or enjoy your free time on the private balcony of your cabin.

(B / L / D)
Day 15 Cruise in Lan Ha Bay Hong Ngoc Dynastie
Wake up in the middle of the bay, breathe in the fresh air, watch the sunrise on the wide horizon and admire the breathtaking archipelago. A short boat trip in smaller boat takes you to a nearby fishing area with really nice opportunities for pictures.

Back on the cruise ship you can enjoy breakfast before heading for the Dark & Bright Cave. To get all the way to the cave you need to sail with a bamboo boat.

The cruise ship serves a delicious fare brunch before their limousine service returns you to Hanoi.
