Cultural Attractions And Landmarks Guide

Cultural tours can take many forms: art, architecture, music, and literary tours being perhaps the most common. But cultural tours might also involve interactions with indigenous tribes in South America or visiting villages to learn about daily life in Fiji. While many tours contain major cultural components, some make it their primary focus.

The Arts & National Consciousness

Throughout time, the arts have been a unique and powerful tool. They are used for portraying both political dissonance and dissatisfaction. They are intrinsically linked to the outlook of a nation. They are a great equalizer - whether you “like” a piece of art or not, is irrelevant. All humans create art, and have for thousands of years. It’s one of the quickest avenues to discovering more about a country’s culture.

It’s guaranteed that a cultural tour will incorporate a deep look at the arts - from film, painting, and music, to artifacts and architecture. 

Native Traditions

Learning about the traditions and cultures of native peoples can be a glimpse into the ancient world. Often more closely connected to their culture as a way of life, in some places native populations are struggling to maintain their traditions in a rapidly closing in modern world. Many tours will showcase local artists, visit native villages, present traditional foods, and you may learn a word or two in their language!

A great time of this forever changing amazing country Vietnam

My Vietnam trip 14 days

5.0 June 2017 Insight Asia Travel Recommend: Yes Insight Asia Travel Hanoi is a company I have personally used for many visits over the last several years on previous holidays to Vietnam and Cambodia .
My most recent trip was with my family been my wife and a 6 year old son in August 2016 .
As per usual we were greeted at the airport by our local guide / travel manager to assist with our check in to our centrally located hotel in the centre of town in Saigon HCMC . We had many day tours to the Mekong Delta and Cu Chi Tunnels , war remnants museum , Independence Palace and to local market places along with a brief walking tour close to the surrounds of the hotel to see the the old post office and cathederal . The hustle and bustle of this amazing city always amazes me as its forever changing after each visit .

The hydrofoil ride up the Saigon river is also a great way to go for the transfers to the peninsula of Vung Tau which takes approx 1 hour 35 min . It takes 3 hours by car or mini van depending on your group size . This is also great as you can see lots of the local villages and town enroute with a couple of stops along the way .

The hotels and tours are all very well handled along with various restaurants chosen for meals as recommended . There is also plenty of time to search around for your own preferences .
Again many local tours in and around the peninsula are a must see.
Domestic airfares are easily done and can be arranged accordingly .
Saigon to Hanoi is approx 2 hours flight. I would suggest that any internal flights or accommodation be held confirmed especially in peak holiday periods to avoid any dissappointment which can be arranged with your guide or have in place before you leave home .
The beautiful capital city of Hanoi has got to be my most favourable city in all of Asia . The old french quarter and Hoan Kiem Lake is very relaxing as you watch the world go by . The water puppet show is a must see traditional part of Vietnamese culture . Ha Long Bay just beautiful with 1 to 3 night stays onboard the cruise junks which are fully inclusive are just fantastic . The overnight train in the sleeper carriages is a great experience approx 12 hours going north
to highlands of Sapa .
There are so many things to see and do and I would have no hesitation to advise other travellers of my experiences with this company . All the staff along with local guides and various tours always go by the scheduled time frame to allow to fit in others things on a day to day basis . The hotels I've stayed in over the years are in great location along with nice clean rooms and good service . Some with swimming pools and some that don't have which isn't high on my list at times .
Overall the memorable times that I've had are all thanks to the expertise of Insight Asia Travel Hanoi and local travel guides and managers which go out of their way to make sure everything is just perfect for you to have a great time of this forever changing amazing country .

Golden Triangle India tour

5.0 April 2017 SafeHands Travels Recommend: Yes I don't know where to start, Rohit was absolutely fantastic on his service, from our first email to arriving in India to the end of our 6-day tour. He made us feel safe and our every concern, issues were sorted out without any fuss. He made sure we were comfortable all the times and he checked with our Driver. Mr. Ajeet Singh (driver) who was also great, he was always on time and happy to take us where we wanted to go once our sightseeing had finished.

We felt that SafeHands customer service is excellent and Rohit understands his clients.

Also, price wise Rohit was very reasonable.

Thank you so much for planning our 6-day tour and we enjoyed every moment of it and will recommend you and your company to our friends and family.

Keep up the great work Rohit.
