Pandaw Cruise Halong Bay & Red River 11 days

Halong Bay - Thai Binh - Ninh Giang Town - Day River - Ninh Binh - Red River - Hanoi - Duong Lam Ancient Village - Viet Tri - Vietnam


For the first time travellers will be able to explain the key sites of Northern Vietnam by river ship traversing the Red River delta and its main tributaries, connecting the wonders of Halong Bay with the excitements of down town Hanoi, and then on into the interior, well off the beaten track. Sailing deep into Highland Vietnam we will discover the mountain villages and a number of tribal areas. We will go as far as is navigable up the Song Red River and then down the little known Da or Black River.
