Hello all the team of Asiatik Travel
This is my second trip to Viet Nam with you; I made the first one in November 2003, with TU, our dear friend-guide, excellent guide, who accompanied us from the first to the last day (14 days) with kindness and competence. His varied knowledge (history, religions, philosophy, life in the countryside ...) enriched our journey. He knew, too, to communicate to us the love of his country.
As far as the program is concerned, he perfectly agreed with us: to visit the North Vietnam in its authenticity, with its ethnic groups, its magnificent rice fields (date of the trip recommended by TU), to the rhythm of the life.
We rode in a perfect tempo, taking the time to stop, to get in touch with the "locals". We had, for example, the chance to see the flowering H'mong beat the rice and participate in a time to their hard work.As for bike rides, (HA LONG land, villages around Lake BA BE) or boat, it was very nice too, never shows in hand, with the respect of the program, however flexible if necessary, to satisfy the customer.
The highlight of the trip was, of course, the bay of HA LONG, on a beautiful boat, great luxury, as much for the comfort as for the meals, delicious, served with delicacy and refinement ...
We strongly advise this beautiful circuit, off the beaten track, with Asiatiktravel, and are already ready to go again in December, for new adventures in Viet Nam ... (third trip for me ..) with our guide TU that we still thank you very much.
