2008 North Unveiled - 9 days

Verdant landscapes, stunning mountain vistas and hilltribe cultures await.

The remote north of Vietnam offers the dedicated traveller some of the most beautiful scenery in the entire country. For centuries the local ethnic hilltribe minority people have made their livelihoods building beautiful rice terraces that cling precariously to the mountains near the borders of China and Laos. Meet them, visit their markets, and gain an understanding of a culture a world apart from your own.
