Day 1: Hanoi, Vietnam

This morning you will be picked up by your guide and driver in a vintage M151 US Army jeep for a ride into the rural countryside around Hanoi. Your first stop is Duong Lam, a commune of six traditional villages 50 km from Hanoi, with century-old houses built from blocks of red-colored laterite rock that have remained relatively unscathed despite nearly half a century of warfare. While in Duong Lam village you will walk to see Mong Phu Communal House and then continue to Mia Pagoda, a 15th-century temple known for its 287 Buddha statues of all sizes. There are also a number of famous sculptures, such as the statue of Buddha in the Himalayas and the statues of the Eight Vajra Deities. You will then head another 5 km to Moon Garden Homestay where you will enjoy a delicious lunch at an authentic restaurant. Subject to availability, you can also enjoy a short tour of Moon Garden’s village complex to learn about the traditional architecture of northern Vietnam. You then return to your hotel in Hanoi by jeep.

The trip might have been the absolute best of our lifetime (thus far). We particularly want to commend our guide Peter in the Guilin area-he was so incredibly attentive, energetic, enthusiastic-and absolutely dedicated to ensuring that our meals were 100% vegetarian.
