In Vietnam you’ll discover a country of beautiful landscapes and smiling friendly people. Our journey takes us from Ho Chi Minh City in the south to Hanoi in the north.
From Ho Chi Minh City, with its beautiful French colonial buildings, we’ll explore the Cu Chi tunnels used during the Vietnam War by the Viet Cong. We’ll also travel the waterways of the Mekong Delta and visit a floating market as well as some island villages.
Da Lat, the former premier French Hill Station, is often called the City of Eternal Spring; and here we’ll ascend Lang Bian Mountain in the National Park. In Nha Trang we include a boat trip to one of the coastal islands for a relaxing day. Next step is Hoi An, the first World Heritage area on our tour. Whilst here we also visit the UNESCO site of My Son.
We travel over the breathtaking Hai Van Pass to the Imperial City of Hue and take a trip on the Perfume River before continuing to the city of Hanoi. We visit traditional local villages from Hòa Bình before continuing to Ninh Bình via Cuc Phuong National Park. Halong Bay is next, where we have an extensive cruise amongst the distinctive 3000 limestone islands and ‘stacks’ forming this remarkable scenic phenomenon.
Vietnam is a wonderful holiday experience but requires a ‘Pioneer’ grade as alterations to hotel bookings, rescheduled or cancelled flights, and other changes to arrangements can take place without prior notice.
