You stop at a bonsai garden to sample some local specialties. In the afternoon, you will arrive at your homestay on the island where you are provided with bedding accommodations. After check-in, you will take a walk around the island to see how the locals live and work. Return to the host family to relax before dinner.
Overnight in Vinh Long

Reviews on Our Service
Unforgettable last minute trip in North Vietnam and Cambodia and amazing agent (Ms Cherry)! 100% recommended!
I had a wonderful time in Vietnam and Cambodia! It was easily one of the favorite trips I have ever had. Every sight and experience was worth it, people everywhere were nice, I loved the food and I always felt extremely safe everywhere and anytime.
I decided to leave very last minute and wasn’t sure I would be able to plan everything in time. I reached out to a few agencies, but Asia Pioneer Travel was the only one who really made the effort to help me book the trip I was looking for! Ms Cherry was an amazing agent! She was able to plan everything in very a short notice and was also able to make adjustments to the itinerary to accommodate my wishes! She was also checking on me via WhatsApp during the trip and met me in Hanoi, making sure everything was going well.
I have already recommended Asian Pioneer Travel to friends who are thinking about a trip there and I will most definitely reach back to them for my next trip to Asia!
Incredible tour experience
Chloe is an amazing travel planner! My husband and I had a fantastic vacation in Hanoi, Halong Bay, Hoi An, and Ho Chi Minh City. She was extremely responsive in making adjustments to our itinerary through the planning phases. She booked beautiful hotels, reliable drivers, and knowledgable and friendly tour guides. I would recommend APT to anyone traveling to Vietnam!
Delicious Hanoi street food tour!
We were fortunate enough to experience an incredible food journey through the streets of Hanoi with your very special food guide Tony. The tour was very informative and covered various backstreet Vietnamese cuisines that the average tourist would have missed!
Get Toni to be your guide in Hanoi!
Toni was an INCREDIBLE guide. I can’t think of a better person to be our introduction to Vietnamese culture and food. He was knowledgeable, capable, made all our activities run together so smoothly and seamlessly. All while doing so with warm enthusiasm. I would recommend his services to anyone who asks. Everything was incredible. Definitely also book his street food tour! You will not regret it!
