About Ethnic Travel
Ethnic Travel is a private Vietnamese-owned
company and is based in Hanoi.
We offer a range
of educational and active small-group trips
throughout the area - boating and kayaking in Bai Tu Long
Bay, cycling and cooking in the Red River and the Mekong River deltas
and visiting ethnic minority cultures in
Vietnam. We design and adapt our trips to respond
to our guests' specific interests. We cater for all ages.
Our guests' days are rich with experiences
and activities. From the different modes of
transport to the paths we travel and the relaxed
pace, everything we do brings us into close
contact with local people and their cultures. Our travellers see areas and experience activities
off the beaten track.
We go to geographically
beautiful, out-of-the-way places, allowing our clients to meet local people in their villages and spend time interacting with them (cooking, having tea, sharing
meals and staying overnight).
Ethnic Travel's guides are educated, experienced,
professional, and passionate about Vietnam and its people. They are committed to travel
that minimizes negative impacts and promotes
positive effects on the local population and
Our travel groups are small
– a maximum of eight to ten travellers. We encourage
our clients to join us in using transport that
minimizes fuel consumption and pollution. For
example, we offer the option of using bicycles, river boats
and local buses.
We choose small, locally-owned
accommodation and homestays; local restaurants
or markets for eating. This brings revenue to
local communities and gives guests a more
intimate view into the way of life in Vietnam.
