This fascinating and original tour combines the tribes of Northern Vietnam with the minority peoples of Southern Yunnan.
Starting in Hanoi, a nostalgic city with a relaxed atmosphere of shady boulevards, yellow-painted French-style buildings and lakeside Chinese temples, we will head up into the hills to spend time with the regional tribes. From here we will cross the border and enter China’s Yunnan Province, an enthralling destination: diverse, stunningly beautiful and largely undiscovered.
There are some 25 minority tribes living in this region, many of whom still lead very traditional lifestyles and it is a world away from the increasing urbanisation of many of China’s better known areas. This is a tour that will take us into the unknown as we cross borders and follow rivers where few travellers have been.
