What travelers say about kimkim

Reviews from kimkim travelers who recently returned from their adventures

Introducing Vietnam

Vietnam offers cultural experiences like no other, incredible natural landscapes, and places to relax and rejuvenate.

When is the best time to visit?
The best times to visit Vietnam are in the Spring (from February to April) or in the Autumn (from August to October).

Where to go in Vietnam?
Half a century has passed since Vietnam was the war-torn nation the world once knew, and in that time it has healed and begun to flourish. Consider visiting the astonishing scenery of Halong Bay, the chaotic and bustling city of Hanoi, and the spectacular caves of Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park.

How many days do I need?
Travelers typically spend at least 2 weeks in Vietnam, although you can still put together a great trip in 7 days.

Vietnam nature trip, Vietnam - Mar 31 - Apr 19, 2018

Traveler: Cliff F. - Local specialist: Andy Carroll

We had a great time touring Vietnam and Cambodia for three weeks. We wanted a trip that covered the main tourist areas, as well as getting out to some of the national parks to see the birds and wildlife. Kimkim put together a package that encompassed everything we wanted to do, and suggested more items too. Everything worked according to plan. We had six different guides in various parts of the countries, and all did an excellent job. All spoke English to a reasonable or better standard,... read more

We had a great time touring Vietnam and Cambodia for three weeks. We wanted a trip that covered the main tourist areas, as well as getting out to some of the national parks to see the birds and wildlife. Kimkim put together a package that encompassed everything we wanted to do, and suggested more items too. Everything worked according to plan. We had six different guides in various parts of the countries, and all did an excellent job. All spoke English to a reasonable or better standard, and were a great help in navigating our way through the trip. It was great having such personal attention. The guides were flexible in the itinerary as well. We changed our minds a couple of times about what we wanted to see, and were easily and happily accommodated. Highlights for the trip would have been seeing the ruins at My Son in Vietnam, and Angkor in Cambodia, as well as some amazing birdwatching tours through Cat Tien N.P. in the south of Vietnam. Other memorable moments included kayaking in Ba Be National Park and Halong Bay Bay, and even an impromptu game of volleyball with some locals in a small village north of Hanoi, and all the amazing food that was served to us, especially in small local places.

Looking to do a vn cycling trip, probably about 2.5 weeks duration, Vietnam - Mar 4 - Mar 24, 2018

Traveler: Ross B. - Local specialist: Adam Platt-Hepworth

We worked with Adam, then Ging from Garasshopper Adventures. Other than some issues with the weather, the entire trip was nearly flawless. Our guides were top notch. Knowledgeable, helpful and personable. We especially liked Thang and Nguyen. I would highly recommend Kimkim and Grasshopper.

Ho chi minh and central highlands, Vietnam - Feb 28 - Mar 18, 2018

Traveler: rion C. - Local specialist: Andy Carroll

The guides and in country contacts from Exotic Voyages were great. There was one change made to the itinerary after our deposit that was unacceptable. It involved an eighteen hour trip on a non express train. The in country contact (Giang) was wonderful in dealing with the problem, and more than made us happy. Saigon, the Mekong Delta, Hue, and Bach Ma National Parks were great places for visit. Hoi An was also beautiful, but the people being brought in by buses from the cruise ships... read more

The guides and in country contacts from Exotic Voyages were great. There was one change made to the itinerary after our deposit that was unacceptable.

Saigon, the Mekong Delta, Hue, and Bach Ma National Parks were great places for visit. Hoi An was also beautiful, but the people being brought in by buses from the cruise ships are destroying what should be a great vacation spot. Siem Reap, Cambodia was everything we expected. The trip out to the large lake was also nice in that it showed the life in Cambodia away from the temple sites.
