Get to know Northern Vietnam with Viator
Home to soaring peaks, stepped rice terraces, and the Vietnamese capital of Hanoi, northern Vietnam feels different from steamy, low-lying southern Vietnam. Foodies and history buffs alike flock to Hanoi and the Red River Delta, the birthplace of Vietnamese culture. Hikers trek the rice terraces around Sapa, while Trang An and Halong Bay’s karst vistas mesmerize. Winter (December–February) can be surprisingly cool: Sapa can drop to 41°F (5°C) at night.
