This 20 day tour takes you on a fascinating journey from one of China's most mystical provinces to the scenic north of Vietnam. Along the way visit the ancient towns of Dali and Lijiang and witness stunning natural wonders at Tiger Leaping Gorge, the surreal Stone Forest, and the breath-taking Yuanyang Rice Terraces. Crossing the border into Vietnam you reach the mountainous beauty, and hill tribes, of Sapa. Continue down to the sublime karst landscapes of rural Ninh Binh, before spending a night in Halong Bay drifting on a junk through one of the world's most outstanding natural beauty spot. Finish with a thorough exploration of the Vietnamese capital of Hanoi, with its narrow streets, outstanding food, and vibrant atmosphere.
