Day 12: Hanoi to home
And so, after enjoying a fabulous breakfast, picking up our new, hand-made clothes and last-minute souvenirs, we say a fond farewell to Vietnam … with transfers to the airport.
Optional photography tour
For early-bird keen photographers there will be the option of a sunrise photography tour (at extra cost) on the last day. You will be transported to the starting point at 4.30am for your special tour where you can explore the historical Long Bien Bridge and lively Long Bien Market, through the lens of your camera, discovering their charms and uncovering their secrets, on this exclusive private photography tour.
Guided by a seasoned professional photographer, visit the legendary Long Bien Bridge as well as the bustling Long Bien Market, learning the best tips and techniques for capturing the unique spirit of these historic sites.
The tour begins on the famous Long Bien Bridge. Opened by the French colonial government in 1909, this bridge became world famous during the Vietnam War when it was repeatedly bombarded, but remains in use to this day. Then, proceed to the lively Long Bien Market to capture its colourful and vibrant atmosphere.
Finally, enjoy a delicious and traditional Vietnamese Pho breakfast near the old water tower. Here, participants will have a chance to review their photographs and receive feedback from the guides before being transferred back to the hotel at 8.30am.
