VIETNAM ADVENTURE

From Ho Chi Minh City to Hanoi

Look just beneath the surface and you’ll discover the authentic Vietnam; a potpourri of beautiful landscapes and vibrant cities, striking coastlines, sandy beaches and welcoming locals. A Vietnam where ancient custom sits happily alongside the modern and where the street is still the heart of social life – colourful floating markets bobbing on the river, vendors selling local delicacies, the washing of laundry alongside the riverbank and market squares where gossip and tales are shared. Immerse yourself in the sights, sounds and smells of Vietnam.

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 and some island villages. Da Lat, the former premier French Hill Station, is often called the City of Eternal Spring; from 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 stop is Hoi An, the first World Heritage area on our tour. Whilst there 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 where we have a full day sightseeing in the city. We move on to the attractive Mai Chau Valley to visit some of the local villages before moving on to Ninh Binh via Cuc Phuong National Park. Halong Bay is next, for an extensive cruise amongst the distinctive 3000 limestone islands and ‘stacks’ forming this quite remarkable scenic phenomenon. We then return to Hanoi for our last night.




WALKING GRADES


This is an active sightseeing holiday off the tourist track. The Pioneer grade indicates that the local conditions, facilities, and transport could be basic and holiday itineraries may change at short notice - but the experience will be well worth it!

  • Accommodation

    We stay throughout in good standard tourist class accommodation but in Mai Chau Valley we have a simpler hotel.

    Sole Occupancy Supplement £455 - £475

    Vietnam Adventure Hotels

    We generally stay at good standard tourist class hotels but in Mai Chau we have a simpler hotel. The meals are a mixture of local Vietnamese and international cuisine with fresh fruit being particularly outstanding. Although the programme is very full, there will be time to take advantage of the many shopping bargains in Saigon, Hanoi and Hoi An.

    Accommodation is in twin bedded and single rooms with shower and wc. The electricity supply can be erratic, and is generally 220 volts AC although you may 
    find 110V AC supplies occasionally. Also please note that the water in the hotels is not drinkable but bottled water can be purchased everywhere. 

    Breakfasts, dinners and five lunches are included in the holiday charge, other lunches are not (please allow sufficient funds for lunch). Please note the 
    Vietnamese are not used to catering for vegetarians and although wholesome vegetarian meals will always be provided some may find the food uninspiring.
