Hanoi Ba Be Lake Cao Bang Ban Gioc Waterfall Lang Son Halong - Hanoi

Most tourists coming to Vietnam do not visit the Northeast. The highlands of the Northeast are little known and a little bit off the beaten track. A big surpise considering that the scenery in this part of Vietnam is one of the countrys most beautiful. An overnight stay on a traditional wooden junk in Halong Bay remains one of the highlights of every Vietnam trip.

Note: Road conditions are not always good on this trip and the accomodation in simple hotels and guesthouses.
