If you’ve never been to Vietnam, have no idea what to expect, and are looking for professional, English-proficient and fun guides, book through Indochina Voyages. As two girls from Dubai traveling alone to the country, we had our fair share of questions (and demands!). We wanted our Visas taken care of, five-star hotels, good food based on our dietary requirements (one gluten-free and one pescatarian), and to see as much as we could in nine days. We chose to see the beautiful North (Ninh Binh, Halong Bay, Sapa and Hanoi), and weren’t disappointed. Nam, a senior travel consultant at Indochina Voyages, was dedicated to us and was constantly available throughout our time in the country. We also met with him three times whilst there, and he personally took us around to his favorite photo-worthy places (something a guide should do!). What I loved most about Indochina Voyages is that they tailor-make your experience based on your taste and level of expectation. Vietnam is a must-see Asian country that should definitely be seen at least once in a lifetime! Give yourself the gift of booking now.
