Eligibility & FAQ's

Beautiful Vietnam is an inspiring fusion of island high life, happy hospitality and intriguing culture. Uncovering gorgeous caves, exploring white sand beaches and discovering that off-the-beaten track adventure is all part and parcel of varied Vietnam! Embrace Vietnam’s history and make new memories in Old Town, or bike, surf and hike for an invigorating experience – there’s always time to find what makes you tick! It’s an essential part of Asian exploration, and although it’s a forward thinking and progressive nation, that rural magic remains. We also hear it’s the heavyweight when it comes to Asian cuisine (but don’t tell Thailand)!

What Are The Sleeper Trains Like?

Sleeper trains typically have 4 seats per compartment. The seats convert into sleeping bunks (two upper and two lower). A sheet, pillow and blanket are provided, although you may prefer to bring your own sleeping sheet.

How Many People Will Be In My Group?

The average group size is 12 travellers. The maximum group size is 18.

How Much Should I Bring For Meals Not Included?

We recommend bringing around £100-130 for meals not included.
