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). 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

Fantastic 21 Day trip · Vietnam - Feb 27 - Mar 18, 2020

Although Andy's name is listed as our local specialist - in reality all credit goes to Ha! We had never worked with a tour company before, but KimKim came highly recommended by my brother who had used them last year. Ha worked so closely with us in the planning - showing genuine flexibility and modifying the program to our exact specifications. We were in Vietnam and Cambodia with another couple - and had a wonderful trip. Even as the pandemic spread - Ha made sure we were safe and aware of changing dynamics. Fortunately, we stayed one step ahead of the virus and enjoyed all the sites and fabulous hotels booked by KimKim. We visited Hanoi, took the train to Sapa (I preferred the van back!) where we trekked amongst the tribes, enjoyed the stunning Halong Bay on a lovely small ship, spent a few days in Angor Wat (with a picnic and massages in a "secret sacred spot"), Saigon and then relaxing on the beach at our favorite hotel - La Veranda in Phu Quoc. Would highly recommended Kim Kim and Ha to anyone planning this trip of a lifetime (when we can all travel again!)

Fantastic Trip to Vietnam! February 27-March 17 · Vietnam - Feb 27 - Mar 18, 2020

We recently returned from an amazing 3-week trip to Vietnam, with a short detour to Cambodia. Ha at KimKim was so incredibly responsive in helping us plan the trip and continuing to customize it for us all the way to the end. She made it absolutely seamless with guides and drivers greeting us exactly as planned, and the hotels she selected more than met our expectations.

Some highlights were riding around Hanoi on a motorbike (driver provided!), biking and cooking classes in Hoi An (and everything about Hoi An), kayaking in Ha Long bay, and a day traveling by boat in the Mekong Delta.

We were also incredibly grateful that we were able to go on our trip and return safely during a time when the Coronavirus was spreading. Vietnam had no active cases when we arrived on 2/27, but infected travelers from Europe began to bring in the virus about a week later. Ha let us know immediately when some potentially infected travelers stayed at a hotel where we were booked, and arranged for us to stay at a different hotel. She also arranged on a moment's notice for us to leave Saigon on an earlier flight to Phu Quoc island so that would could relax and be less concerned about staying in a congested city.

We would not hesitate to recommend Ha and KimKim and to use them again...when everything settles down:)
