Your Itinerary

During their tour, our members will follow the itinerary as seen below. This is a shared tour and groups could be any size from 2-16 people. 

Pleasr Note: The Vietnam traditional new year celebrations take place between 24 January – 29 January 2020. During this period many monuments will be closed and can only be visited externally, and the floating markets and other traditional markets also cease business during these days. Many shops and restaurants will be closed for holidays and there will also be large queues to board at the airports since it will be the most important holiday period for Vietnamese. For this reason, your guide will be able to alter the schedule and / or order of the visits accordingly when travel in during these times, so that the program can be carried out as normally, Aurora Travel will try as far as possible that these alterations are the minimum. We do not recommend travelling through Vietnam on these dates. Vietnam also celebrates the National Day of Vietnam on April 30, May 01 and September 02, so it is possible that you will have limited access to some streets or places of interest on these dates.
