In the morning, from Da Nang train station, we move to a small town. Hoi an, which is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. In this Vietnamese city reigns absolutely Chinese atmosphere: one-story houses under tiled roofs and narrow streets. In the 16th and 17th centuries, Hoi An, also known under the old name Faifo, was an important and very busy trading port. Later, the center of commerce moved to Da Nang, but in the heart of Hoi An, the old city, the spirit of the old trading city was preserved.
Hoi An is sometimes called an open-air city-museum, in which 844 are officially recognized buildings of historic significance. Among them are ancient Chinese houses, Cham temples, shops, public buildings, graves. Here you can spend hours walking around the ancient quarters of the city, looking at the numerous meeting rooms of Chinese communities, charming ancestral houses — some of them already have the fifteenth generation of the same family.
We can confidently say that Hoi An is one of the most romantic resorts in Vietnam. The city is also known for its traditional and souvenir shops, a large number of sewing workshops. After settling in the hotel, we walk through the ancient streets of the city.

We arrive at Hue, the capital of the emperors dynasty Nguyen. Of all the ancient capitals of Vietnam, Hue is the only city that has kept the residence of the Vietnamese emperors, so it can be considered a valuable historical and cultural treasure of the country.
The former capital of Vietnam is well known for its magnificent architecture: fortresses, palaces, royal tombs, pagodas and temples — everything that was not completely destroyed by the two armies during the Vietnam War. In the evening, we will stroll through the evening streets of the cozy city and enjoy the famous Hue cuisine, which differs markedly from the traditional Vietnamese cuisine.
11 day, April 16th

In the evening, we are waiting for the next night transfer to the north of the country, to the mysterious town of Ninh Binh.

12 day, April 17th
In the morning we arrive at Ninh Binh, check in to the hotel and go for a walk. Ninh Binh is a real find for the traveler! This is the very same Asia: ancient, mysterious, uncluttered and peaceful. Ninh Binh is often called the “long haong”. There are few tourists here and there is everything: stunning mountains and rice fields, grottoes and ancient temples, flowering lakes and a mountain river, which made its way through the majestic cliffs and created through-caves.
Today we ride a small boat on the river through caves and grottoes, explore the temples of the ancient capital of Vietnam – Haola (Hoa Lu), admire the breathtaking views from the ancient rock pagoda of Bihdong (Bich Dong) and rush “with the wind” on the bike through the rice terraces to meet a picturesque sunset …
13 day, April 18th.
In the morning we go by train to the capital of Vietnam – Hanoi. We begin our acquaintance with the city at the sacred Lake of the Returned Sword, where the famous Turtle Temple is located. This landmark in the very center of the city naturally formed on the site of the former riverbed and gained cultural significance due to the legend of the magical golden turtle, which gave Thuan-Chien the sword to Emperor Le Lois and thus helped liberate the country from the Chinese yoke.
There are several islands on the lake, and there are several buildings on them that make the lake landscape particularly attractive.
We walk through the ancient streets of the old quarter, which is located around the lake. The old quarter exists about 1000 years and includes 36 streets with speaking names according to the guilds of artisans: Silk, Paper, Silver and even Sweet Street, resembling a pastry market. There are always a lot of people, always produce something and there is always a brisk trade.
14 day, April 19th
Today we will “return” in Soviet times, visiting the main square of the city – Ba Dinh, Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum and the Presidential Palace.

The end of the expedition, return home.
In order for your expedition to be successful and deliver only positive emotions you need to pay attention to a few moments.
This is a trip along a pre-planned route in order to see the life of people and the heritage of the places visited. On expeditions we often use public transport, we live in houses of the indigenous population. Every day on the expedition passes richly, and by the evening it seems to you that not a day has passed, but a whole week! Expedition is not the easiest type of rest, as there can be strikes, bad weather, long and tiring journeys, a toilet on the floor and sometimes outside, twin beds or a shared tent, fatigue and other external factors that can interfere with the passage. route or just not be familiar to you, but one thing is for sure – this is the most interesting and intense vacation format that you will always remember with warmth! And when, in the end still, if not now?
This is a person who takes all the organizational issues of the trip. What time we get up, when we take off, where we will spend the night, where we will have dinner, what activity we will go tomorrow, how to turn on wi-fi and another ordinary billion everyday questions – you don’t need to think about anything, as the group leader will be puzzled for 24 hours per day. The team leader loves and knows the region of the expedition well, so he will be happy to share his knowledge. An experienced Chiptrip follower will accompany the group on this route.
Team will consist of the same cool adventure seekers like you – your future friends. Some, after the expedition, travel more than one trip together! If you are alone – you should not be afraid of this, as a rule, a lot of people sign up one at a time, but on the trip we are one united team of seekers of natural beauty and true life! In the expedition, mutual respect, acceptance and goodwill within the group is very important, so the team doesn’t lead by a nose, but leave obsessive behavior and whims at home, it’s recommended to take adequacy, smile and love for your neighbor with you on a trip!
