Before you embark on this Retreat, we ask you to consider the points listed below that relate to our Vietnam Retreats. This will ensure you understand what is involved and help you decide if this retreat is right for you.


  • To ensure that your retreat runs as smoothly as possible for you and your fellow retreat members, please consider the following aspects prior to confirming your arrangements.


  • While we believe that age is no barrier, please give special consideration to the fact that medical assistance and public infrastructure can be limited in Vietnam.


  • There may be long periods of physical activity, including walking, climbing of stairs, in/out of boats. Participants who will travel with a cane/walking stick may come across difficulties. It is our experience that using a cane/walking stick in these areas where there are rough and uneven surfaces, stairs to climb and high humidity/summer temperatures, becomes difficult.


  • Only limited meal options will be available. People with special dietary requirements can expect difficulties on these tours. Please understand that depending on the street food or market vendor you may be given very little or no meat/fish. Sometimes vegetarian options are not available. Mostly only one dish is served and you will not have much choice when eating at a local eatery. Allergies including mild intolerances to to life threatening anaphylactic reactions can not be accommodated on Vietnam retreats.


  • Your retreat includes 3/4 star accommodation facilities. The city and/or village power or water may at times be disrupted. This may mean the power, hot water, wifi, refrigeration or air-conditioning may not be available for short or long periods.


  • There will be long periods of driving on often rural and bumpy roads in vehicles ranging from tour coaches to taxi’s.


  • Heat and humidity affects people in many different ways and a certain level of fitness is required in order to limit the effects. Please discuss how to manage Vietnams tropical summer heat with a health care professional.


  • Guides will endeavour to provide rest stops in your itinerary where possible. Please be advised that some days may have a more physical program than others.


  • We strongly urge you to be sure you can make it before you book. Please see our refund policy in Terms and Conditions.


  • Each guest will have different medical needs including decisions to be made with travel vaccinations. Please see a health care professional for advice.
