Bangkok-based Backyard Travel, Asia’s most innovative tour and travel operator, today announced tours that showcase the fascinating culture and heritage of Vietnam.

Halong Bay, Vietnam

Vietnam is an incredibly rich destination culturally and our tours allow travelers to explore the country at a deep level. From modern to ancient history Vietnam has a fascinating past as well as diverse scenery, people and cuisine.

Vietnam is an endlessly engaging country. From the chilly northern highlands to the idyllic islands in the south, it’s a country rich in natural beauty, offering lessons in history at every turn. Travelers looking for a beach escape can head to Phuc Quoc or Con Dao islands, while urban adventurers and history buffs will find a treasure trove of activities in Hoi An, Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon).

To meet the demands of diverse travelers, Backyard Travel has a varied selection of tours throughout Vietnam. The 13-day Luxury Vietnam Unveiled trip is a comprehensive itinerary through all of Vietnam's major cities, beginning with a chauffeured Vespa tour through Ho Chi Minh City and ending up in Hanoi. Highlights include a scenic cruise on Halong Bay, a dinner of "royal cuisine" in Hue, dining in family homes and a cycle trip through rural Hoi An.

The Culinary Journey tour is designed to whet the travel appetites of gourmands. This 12-day tour includes a guided market trip with a top Saigon chef, including an exclusive private cooking class. A food guide in Hanoi shows travelers the best of the city's food stalls, while in Hoi An, guests are treated to 36 different types of hawker specialties unique to Vietnam.

For the active traveler, the Vietnam Bike Adventure showcases the stunning countryside of Hanoi on two wheels. This 11-day tour passes through the capital’s picturesque Old Quarter, through bamboo and banana groves, and up mountainous roads to terraced rice fields. The historic city of Dien Bien Phu is a highlight of this journey.

Vietnam is full of wonders – both natural and historical – and the Vietnamese Odyssey tour gives travelers the chance to explore some of these. Offering a unique snapshot of the country, this 20-day journey includes a trip to Cu Chi tunnels – a holdover from French Occupation, a cruise around the stunning Nha Trang islands, time aboard a wooden junk boat on Halong Bay and visits to ancient village and temple ruins.
