This trip takes you high up into the Tonkinese Alps, wedged between the Gulf of Tonkin and the Chinese province of Yunnan. This vast area is one of the best places in Asia to see hilltribes. Modernity is encroaching everywhere but traditional ways of life are still widespread and, to the delight of all visitors, the colour and dash of hilltribe clothing is a constant. The accommodation and standards along the way are definitely for the adventurous traveller, someone who doesn't mind the roughness of rural Vietnamese living. But it's also for the explorer in you - many locations on this route have seen few travellers of any kind.
Beach time and kayaking in Halong Bay
Trekking in Muong Hoa valley
Discover the daily life of ethnic White Thai people
