In Hanoi and Tam Coc there is a wide range of dining options and it makes sense while staying in these places to leave the choice to you. Therefore meals other than breakfasts and the welcome dinner have not been included while staying in Hanoi and Tam Coc. All other meals are included in the trip price. We estimate the total cost of the non included meals (2 lunches and 3 dinners) to be around $50. Please refer to the itinerary for details of which meals are not included.
The group will spend 3 nights at a centrally located 3 star hotel in Hanoi and 1 night at a hotel in Tam Coc. During the visit to Halong Bay the group will stay 2 nights in cabins aboard a traditional Vietnamese junk. There are also 3 nights in local guest houses and 4 nights staying in the home of a local villager. Generally accommodation is arranged on a twin sharing basis. If you are travelling alone you will be paired up with another individual client of the same sex. Please note however, it is not possible to guarantee twin share in village houses. Depending on the size of the group group members will share larger communal rooms for sleeping. Facilities at the village houses are very basic. Note that hot water is not usually available, and that toilets are often "long-drop" style. It is hoped that the warmth of the welcome, the charm of staying with local villagers and witnessing traditional life will make up for the lack of modern facilities. Depending on availability it may be possible to arrange a single supplement to cover the 7 hotel and lodge nights for an additional cost. For additional hotel prices and single supplement costs please refer to the dates and prices page of the trip on our website.
