The new King Kong movie, Kong: Skull Island, premiered earlier this year and scored a very respectable score of 76% on Rotten Tomatoes.

While I’m sure the acting and special effects were the highest contributors to the film’s positive reviews, the breathtaking scenery of the film’s locations surely captured moviegoers’ eyes.

Vietnam is a popular tourist destination as it is, but now there is even more to see in the Southeast Asian country. Exotic Voyages[1] is now offering a ten-day trip that takes visitors to the various spots where Kong: Skull Island was filmed. Starting in Hanoi and ending in Saigon, this Kong tour will leave you astonished at Vietnam’s natural beauty.

In the new tour’s press release, Global Head of Sales and Marketing at Exotic Voyages, Andrew Carroll, said, “There are natural settings in Vietnam[2], off the beaten tourist path, that is as raw and unbelievable as King Kong himself.”

After seeing the immense beauty on this expansive King Kong tour, you will agree with Andrew’s claim.

Beginning in Hanoi, Vietnam, tourists will get a gander at the city’s rich history while visiting the main historical sites in the Vietnamese capital, followed by fine dining at some of Hanoi’s finest eateries.

The next leg of the tour involves scenic driving from Hanoi to Ninh Binh while enjoying some delectable Vietnamese ‘banh mi.’

Later that day, tourists will be able to witness the biodiversity of the beautiful Van Long Nature Reserve in Ninh Binh.

The following day, tourists will get on a private seaplane headed to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Ha Long Bay. Aboard the seaplane, incredible views of the bay and the Gulf of Tokin will be visible. Once you arrive at Ha Long Bay, an overnight cruise with plenty of fresh seafood will be your next means of travel and vacation.
