Day 1
Fly from UK to
Days 2-3
Hanoi

A true east-meets-west city, Hanoi is a cacophony of motorbikes, street stalls, temples, pagodas and skyscrapers. Explore the elegant Temple of Literature as well as Ngoc Son Temple, which extends out into Hoan Kiem Lake, which itself is a lovely peaceful spot away from the frenetic streets. In the evening, join your guide for a culinary adventure, sampling the street food and local beer from Hanoi’s Old Quarter.

Halong Bay

Here, you’ll join a two-day cruise across the green waters on board L’Azalee wooden junkboat, calling in at fishing villages, kayaking to coves and, if you fancy, swimming in the sea. The following morning, you’ll wake up on the water and can join a morning Tai Chi session on board before visiting a pearl farm and then cruising back to shore. Return to Hanoi and take the overnight train to Danang.

Hoi An

While you’re here, you’ll take part in a boat and bike tour, where you’ll weave through the backstreets to the countryside, visiting some of the region’s villages, talking to the locals and learning about rural life among the rice paddies. Later, you’ll take a boat down the Thu Bon River and explore the fishing villages from the water.

Ho Chi Minh City

Here, there’s a plethora of historical sights to explore, including the Reunification Palace, the former presidential palace, which has been left as it was the day Saigon fell to the North. While staying in the city, you’ll take a tour of the Mekong Delta. Often referred to as the rice bowl of Vietnam, the Mekong is a vast network of canals and channels which you will explore by boat. Take a look around floating markets, taste the local food and see how the local crafts are made.
