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 Halong Bay and 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 touring needs and budget. 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 the 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 the environment.

Our travel groups are small – a maximum of eight to twelve 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.
