More Info | What’s a ‘Local Living’ tour?
Be where you belong
Always dreamed of getting deep inside one of the world’s greatest and most out-there destinations?
You can now.
Local Living tours send you undercover in some of the Vietnam’s
most interesting places to discover life as it’s lived every day.
Unpack once at a central home base – a Vietnamese farmhouse, a homestay in the big city,
a rustic stilt house lodge in the Sapa mountains
and discover how the locals live with the help of a connected guided who knows the area best
Everywhere is local
It’s not a hotel. It’s home
You won’t stray too far from your lodgings on a Local Living trip,
and once you’ve seen 'em, you won’t want to.
Each trip is based out of a charming and unique residence steeped in local character.
Unpack once, meet your host, and start getting the lay of the land.
Your trip, your way
Itineraries are as loose-fit and flexible as you are.
Pursue the whim of the moment and really dig into the elements
of your destination that drew you to it in the first place.
We give you the setting, somewhere to stay,
and all the options you want, you fill in the rest.
Don’t just visit. Inhabit
Cook – Dine – Sleep
You’re a local now. Live accordingly.
It’s difficult to feel a connection to any place when you’re staying in a different hotel every night,
particularly if that hotel is just like every other hotel everywhere in the world.
Local Living trips are centre-based, which means you stay in one location for the majority of your trip.
What sort of locations? family homes, and converted farmhouses,
and jungle or mountain homestays, cave campsites in the outer reaches.
You'll love them so much, you might be tempted to start forwarding your mail there.
Live like a local
Your life doesn’t stick to an itinerary set by someone else, and neither does a Local Living trip.
We provide some structure and scheduled activities, but you decide
which ones you want to do and when you want to do them.
Need some fresh air? Hike through the hills. Stayed up too late the night before?
Hang around and take it easy. Stumped for ideas?
The world is a neighborhood
The whole point of Local Living is to provide you with a glimpse of life as it’s actually lived every day,
whether it’s in local fishing village, Ba Be, the Central Coast of Vietnam,
the mountains of Sapa or the Cave near Dong Hoi.
Through our connections,
You will be able to meet and interact with people she would never have met otherwise,
and through them gained a more profound understanding.
