The 12 Services of Oriental Bridge Travel

Oriental Bridge Travel offers you 12 services:


Hotels reservations throughout Vietnam: Oriental Bridge makes and guarantees your reservations in all the best hotels of Vietnam. You can give us the hotels of your choice. However, in each main touristic site (Ha Noi, Sapa, Tam Coc, Hue, Hoi An, etc.), we have selected one of the very best in each category, for their perfect location, their elegance, their comfort, and the quality of their service. Either you select your own or ours, you will pay the same rate as if you make the reservations yourself, but we protect you against unpleasant surprises.

If you prefer to stay in a Vietnamese home in Ha Noi, we offer you our own sumptuous homestay villa-garden Maison Ly, a perfect stunning replica of a 17th century Hoi An house.


Reservation and ticketing of all public transports: Oriental Bridge makes the reservations, guarantees them, and issue the tickets for all public transports except some small local buses: domestic flights and international ones to neighboring countries, day and night trains and buses, boats, etc.


Cruises in Halong Bay and other bays in a private junk: Our private cruises are quality services on a small traditional 1 or 2-cabin sailing junk from standard to deluxe. Needless to say that you will be the only guests on the junk, the small size of which allows cruising completely off the beaten “tracks”.


We are the happy owners of our own elegant 2-cabin junk, Oriental Sun,
which brings you a major advantage : we completely control the quality
of the in-board services.


Cruises in Halong Bay and other bays in a deluxe collective junk: We collaborate with two operators of deluxe collective junks : Bhaya Cruises, which operates larger boats, and Indochina Junk, which operates smaller ones. Their cruises are classic ones, but the quality of the services is quite exceptional.


Cruises in Halong Bay and other bays cruises in a budget collective junk: Though Oriental Bridge avoids proposing those cruises, we understand that not everybody can afford a private one. Therefore, we also sub-contract cruises, but only from highly reputable companies such as Dragon Cruises, Imperial Cruises, Oriental Sails or V’Spirit.


Organized tours in a chauffeur-driven private vehicle: Those tours range from 1 day (visit of Ha Noi, of the Perfume Pagoda, of Tam Coc, etc.) to 13, 15 and 22 days (our “Trans-Vietnamese” between Ha Noi and Saigon), and are exceptional inasmuch as they completely differ from classic tours, including sites where other tour operators do not go, using small roads as much as possible, and often exceptional hotels and guesthouses. Those tours can also be organized in a minibus for small groups.


Trekkings around Sapa, Bac Ha and Mai Chau: Those trekkings range from 1 to 6 days and more, with an English-speaking guide who knows the region perfectly well and takes you on trails rarely used by tourists.


Customized tours in chauffeur-driven private vehicle: Designing customized tours is our largest activity, either is one of our main activities, either by proposing you the best tour corresponding exactly to the duration of your journey, your tastes and your budget, or by detailing day by day a tour that you have already in mind (with suggestions of changes if we think it is necessary).


Organized group tours by bus: Though Oriental Bridge avoids proposing those tours, we understand that not everybody can afford a private tour. Therefore, we can book for you with the best local operator any group tour you may wish.


Organized tours in Cambodia in a chauffeur-driven private vehicle : Those tours take you for a 2 to 5-day visit of the fascinating Temples of Angkor, with an expert guide. We also offer you the possibility of extending your stay by spending 2 days in the charming Phnom Penh.


Organized tours in Laos in a chauffeur-driven private vehicle: We propose 9 tours of that magnificent country : 3 tours of Luang Prabang and surroundings, a tour de Luang Prabang and the famous Plain of Jars, 2 tours of the North (From Luang Prabang and from Dien Bien Phu), one tour of the South, and 2 tours of the entire country (15 and 20 days).
