Itinerary

Day 1
Fly from UK to
Days 2-3
Hanoi

Explore the wide tree lined avenues, beautiful lakes, ancient pagodas and historic Old Quarter which all blend together in a unique fusion of French colonial splendour and oriental charm. Let your love affair with Vietnamese food begin as you sample the many delights on offer, from the delectable delights of the ever present street food stalls to the wide selection of restaurants serving up flavour-packed treats for all tastes.

4* Silk Path Hotel

Local Life: Hidden Hanoi Walking tour

Vietnamese-Florist-Vietnam
Day 4
Halong Bay

Board a traditional junkboat to see the karst limestone islets rise majestically from emerald green waters, and the colourful floating villages scattered around the bay. Take a swim, grab a kayak or just soak up the incredible view from the boat deck.

1 night aboard a Halong Bay Junkboat (L'Azalee Cruises)

Days 5-6
Hue

A UNESCO World Heritage site home to an astonishing collection of dynastic treasures dotted along the evocative Perfume River, which winds its way through the city, Hue is a treasure trove of sights. Within the crumbling walls of the citadel, you will discover the commanding Imperial City, the splendour of the Forbidden Purple City and many more enchanting streets and monuments, some of which lie in ruin.

5* Pilgrimage Village

1 night on board the overnight sleeper train from Hanoi to Hue

A pagoda in Hue
Days 7-9
Hoi An

Boutique restaurants, hip cafes along the waterfront, delightful craft shops and artisans including some of Asia's best bespoke tailors (whose services come at a nominal price), can all be found here. The Old Town, with its Japanese covered bridge and French colonial houses, as well as the impressive My Son Hindu temple are just two of the must-see sights. While you’re here, take part in a cookery class.

4* Anantara Hoi An Resort

Hoi An Cooking lesson

A river in Hoi An
Days 10-12
Ho Chi Minh City

Tour the Cu Chi tunnels and descend into the terrifyingly narrow underground narrow network used by the Viet Cong. Perhaps visit the Reunification Palace - a time warp from the 1970s, complete with secret bunker and military command centre, and pay a visit to the War Remnants Museum for a harrowing view of the war's impact. Also don't miss the many architectural relics from Vietnam's French rule, the chance to shop for souvenirs in the incredible Ben Thanh Market or the opportunity for a bit of ‘me-time' with a foot massage.

4* Saigon Prince Hotel

Cu Chi Tunnels Tour

Saigon-HoChiMinh-Vietnam
Days 13-14
Depart Ho Chi Minh City and return to the UK
