You will be travelling through the remote areas in the north of Vietnam, brushing along the Chinese border and staying with local families to find out about the unique cultures and customs of Vietnam.
We had so much fun during the tour.
Both the guide and driver are so accommodating and understanding. Long drives in the car is filled with many history and cultural stories of Vietnam and of course, local food delights during our rest breaks.
The homestays are so memorable. Lovely hosts, delicious food, wonderful drinks. Plus all the beautiful places of attractions.
Yes, it will be Terrible if you don’t join them for a tour.
The guide was pleasant, the visits were alright. We spend two night in Home-stay, it was very interesting. Overall it was a great few day of discovery, with a fair amount of car travel.
Beautiful waterfall although it was a really long drive there. Spent about 10 hours on the road on the first day, and the roads are pretty winding. That said, the countryside was beautiful. Homestay was good and we were really fortunate to be in time for the local market in Cao Bang. Ba Be lake was nice too, but regrettably we did not have much time to hike/ cycle in this beautiful national park. Our guide, Tung and driver Nhan were also very friendly. Weather in December seems to be pretty cloudy though.
Had a wonderful experience on both nights of homestay. Visited the Ban Gioc Waterfall and enjoyed the beautiful scenery. Though the journey was almost 10 hours and a lot of bends, it was compensated with the amazing view. We visited Ba Be Lake and it was beautiful too. Had a first hand experience how the local lived and how they create different uses with the different use of fruits, plants and trees. Our guide, Huy was informative and friendly. And our driver, Tinh is very experienced and friendly. Overall, both places were great!
My tour guide Joey was really cheerful and informative. I felt very comfortable in the 3 days and 2 nights under his guide and I cannot ask for a better guide for this tour. Our driver, Cuong drove very safely as well, even though the road conditions were not one of the best. Note that the drive to ban gioc can be quite painful because it’s a Long 10 hours drive around 6 mountains. Ban gioc waterfall is spectacular, however 3 days and 2 nights is a little to short to visit both ban gioc and babe, so I recommend going for the longer tours.
Overall, I had a splendid time in Cao Bang!
