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). Learn more
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.
Getting Around Vietnam
Air travel is often the best option when traveling long distances within the country, though there are also nearly two thousand miles of railway that connect major cities like Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi—this is a (much) slower way to go, but with plenty of scenery and worthwhile stopping points along the way. Those venturing to the islands or Halong Bay will need to take a ferry or private boat. Learn more

Amazing experience for our Vietnam trip
Nov 6 - Nov 19, 2022
Great experience overall, from A to Z (with both KimKim and our local specialist from Realistic Asia).
Before the trip:
I have to say, I was not comfortable at first because I had never heard of KimKim before and reviews on Realistic Asia were good but not numerous.
For everyone reading my review and having the same lack of comfort : get over it and book with these guys without any hesitation.
Hien was my contact since the very beginning. Great and pro-active communication, she was... read more
A first trip to VietNam, made amazing by KimKim
Nov 6 - Nov 11, 2022
We enjoyed our hotels and guides very much. Every guide and driver was timely, which can be a real worry when you are traveling in a country where you don't speak the language. The hotels were nicer than we anticipated, particularly the Myst in Ho Chi Minh. The cruise in HaLong was alot of fun and worth the time it took (we only had 4 days in VietNam). The only part of our trip I wouldn't recommend was the Mekong delta trip. We felt it was took too long to reach the starting destination and lasted too long.
Otherwise, would use KimKim again to plan future trips.
Oct 20 - Nov 2, 2022
The trip was great. It was easy to plan and Ashley was very prompt in making the changes we asked for. We had a few hiccups along the way which Ashley sorted out.
Highly recommend using KimKim. read more
