Highlights

 

Be enthralled by the cultural and natural splendour of Hanoi, Halong Bay, Hoi An and Ho Chi Minh City on a 10 day Discover Vietnam tour.

Arrive in Hanoi and immediately be swept up in the energy of this city. You’re staying in the heart of the Old Quarter so have a front-row perch for observing the charm and ways of local life. Then swap the metropolis for the magic of the Red River Delta landscape and the turquoise waters of UNESCO World Heritage Site-listed Halong Bay. Here, you board your floating home-away-from-home for an overnight cruise of this famed natural wonder. Explore the Bay’s most recognisable caves, enjoy a kayak expedition, and acquire newfound culinary skills with an on-board cooking class. 

Move from Halong Bay to Hoi An, the impossibly photogenic city on Vietnam’s central coast. Make the most of your free time here as you amble along the heritage streets, feast on plates of local specialties, and admire the melting-pot of architecture that has made Hoi An such a beloved destination. You will also travel to nearby My Son, an extraordinary site comprised of abandoned Hindu temples, relics and intricately-engraved structures. Be sure to have your camera charged for this excursion!

It is then onto Ho Chi Minh City, the lively and spirited city in Vietnam’s south. Known for its part in the Vietnam War, as well as its colonial architecture, sprawling markets and exceptional local dining scene; Ho Chi Minh City delivers on all fronts and for all travellers. Day-trip out to Cu Chi Tunnels while in Ho Chi Minh City to learn about this culturally and historically invaluable site.
