Daily departure 8:00 AM from Hanoi
Our tours are designed to provide our guests the experience of Vietnam in a way that is real, authentic and unique. We want all our guests who decide to ‘live’ Vietnam with us. To not only walk away with memories that will last a lifetime but to also take impressions of Vietnam that are consistent with the reality for the majority of people who live in this remarkable country.
The location of PaddyHome Dong Trieu makes it not only ideal to do as a stand-alone activity, but also one that is ideal to do in tandem with some of the “big ticket” tourist options in northeastern Vietnam, such as Halong Bay. Either way, we are confident that all our tours are special enough to live with all who experience them for a lifetime.
PaddyHome/Halong combined is an all- inclusive 3 day, 2 night experience that is guaranteed to have you whiling away the time in the most memorable of ways. This tour will see you experiencing life as a North Vietnamese farmer, picking or planting rice, irrigating the fields in the traditional way, catching fish, paddling a boat up the Ngo river, riding water buffalos and cycling through the most amazing ‘un-touched’ countryside in Northern Vietnam. On top of this you will also experience one night’s home stay – hosted by a local family – with awesome local cuisine. Mealtime is shared with the locals and is a great opportunity to tap into the most amazing stories from a former North Vietnamese soldier and women who have lived through Vietnam’s tumultuous history.
This tour is also combined with a Halong Bay overnight cruise where you can relax whilst sailing through a landscape of amazing limestone rock formations that emerge from the emerald green waters. Cruising, kayaking, exploring caves and practicing Tai Chi on the deck before breakfast makes this a truly memorable experience.
