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.

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

Riding With Grasshopper · Vietnam - Oct 24 - Nov 27, 2019

Traveler: Brad W. - Local specialist: Jasmine Whitney

We had a specific requirement to accommodate our own tandem bike. Kimkim and Grasshopper Adventures were very attentive to that and made it happen.
Our trip was a chain of itineraries beginning in Bankok and ending in Hanoi, with the mix of companions changing as we went. At one time we were 16 (a bit over the promised limit of 15) but on the final leg we were the only travelers, making it a private tour with a guide, a passenger van and a service truck and two drivers!

We had a specific requirement to accommodate our own tandem bike. Kimkim and Grasshopper Adventures were very attentive to that and made it happen.
Our trip was a chain of itineraries beginning in Bankok and ending in Hanoi, with the mix of companions changing as we went. At one time we were 16 (a bit over the promised limit of 15) but on the final leg we were the only travelers, making it a private tour with a guide, a passenger van and a service truck and two drivers! A bit much for a couple who ordinarily ride on their own. They were very attentive.
Accommodations were always 5 star if available and excellent in every case. The entire trip was well researched. We were impressed with Grasshopper Adventures' focus on patronizing local businesses and restaurants and seeking those which included a mission to help disadvantaged youth get training in the booming hospitality trade.
Early in the trip we were both had colds and the heat was debilitating, causing us to fall several times on the second day out and we had to ride in the van for the last few km. The guides, staff and our riding companions were all very attentive and supportive. At 76, we were at least a decade senior to all the others.
Guides and assistants who stood out were Sophat and Rong, in Cambodia, and Ky and Huong in Vietnam. We came to know Rong and Huong quite well because we were always last in and they were riding sweep. My only minor complaint is that they were too attentive and I kept having to remind them that "I can do it myself." There were two communication lapses which did not detract from our experience. On our arrival in Cambodia, Sophat was surprised by our tandem bike. He never let on to us and he managed it smoothly. And in Saigon we were sceduled for a foodie tour on Vespa motorbkes, but we did not know and had arranged for dinner with some departing companions that evening.
Our favorite experience was at Phong Nha national park with the Choy Lap Farm Stay, karst landscape, caves, waterfalls and scenic riding.

Traveler: David W. - Local specialist: Thuy Nguyen

I booked a trip to Vietnam with Ms. Thuy and she set everything up. We set off in Hanoi and out guide was great. He knew the area and was knowledgable about the sites we saw. We then had a few days in Tuy Hoa which we did ourself. This agency lets you customize trips to your liking and needs. I love that. We ended our trip in Saigon which was great too. Guide was great and was knowledgable. I would recommend Kim Kim. Great trip planning experience.
