Your itinerary

​Today we'll fly to Hanoi.

​On arrival in Hanoi, we'll transfer you to your hotel. After time to settle in, get to know your travelling companions over a drink and dinner this evening.

​Hanoi is Vietnam's vibrant capital, and this morning we include a tour here. See the restored Opera House, the One Pillar Pagoda and Ba Dinh Square, where silent sentries guard the marble and granite mausoleum where Ho Chi Minh lies in state.
A great way to experience this lively city is aboard cyclos – Vietnam's answer to the rickshaw. Step aboard your cyclo in the afternoon for a tour of the ancient quarter, or 36 Streets district as it is also known. This is a souvenir hunters' paradise, where old homes and temples vie for attention alongside shops selling silk clothing, silver products and more. The rest of the day is at leisure for you to sample local eateries and try traditional cuisine.
This evening we offer an optional excursion to a water puppet show, a wonderful Vietnamese tradition that's been going strong since the 11th century. We'll head to the Thang Long Theatre, which sits beside Hoan Kiem Lake, and the performance we'll see tells stories of village life and local history and is accompanied by traditional music and dance. The show takes place in a waist-deep pool of water, and how it is done exactly is steeped in mystery. Afterwards you can put forward your theories over dinner in a nearby restaurant.

​​UNESCO-listed Halong Bay is truly beautiful and today we're going to explore it in style. We'll board a traditional boat for an overnight cruise amongst its idyllic waters. As we sail, we'll be able to admire the dramatic limestone peaks that rise sharply out of the sea, and we'll even enter one of the vast caves to gaze at the gigantic stalactites and stalagmites that have formed over centuries.
On the boat we'll enjoy a lovely seafood lunch, and this evening, dinner is also served on board before you retire to your cabin in this unique overnight accommodation.  ​

​You'll wake to stunning views of Halong Bay today, and you can enjoy a morning at leisure on the boat. You could take part in a Tai Chi session on deck, or maybe you'll just choose to sit and take in the gorgeous scenery with a cup of coffee before we disembark.
We'll then transfer to the airport for our flight to Hue, the former capital of Vietnam.

​We'll get out and explore Hue this morning on an included tour of its main highlights. We'll take in the beauty of the Thien Mu Pagoda, which boasts a stunning setting overlooking the Perfume River. We'll also see the elaborate royal tombs of Tu Duc, considered one of the most beautiful sites in Hue, and Khai Dinh, which sits on the side of a mountain and is accessed by climbing more than 100 steps.
Later, there's time to rest your legs as we take a scenic journey by road to Danang and on to Hoi An. ​

​Discover beautiful Hoi An on a walking tour of this ancient riverside town, which is quite simply the most enchanting place on the Vietnamese coast. We will wander among its quaint streets, where we'll see highlights including the Japanese Covered Bridge, a 200-year-old merchant’s house and the 15th century Chuc Thanh Pagoda. If you'd like to explore further, why not join an optional bicycle ride past homes, vegetable gardens and fruit orchards before we reach a quaint village where the locals will offer us a warm welcome.
Later today enjoy a visit to STREETS International's Oodles of Noodles project, a scheme which supports street kids and disadvantaged young people by providing them with training for a career in the hospitality industry. You'll meet some of the students, learn about different types of noodles and then have a go at making some yourself. Afterwards, a delicious lunch of Mi Quang noodles will be served.​

During a free day you could spend time enjoying the facilities at your hotel or exploring the town and its vibrant temples and markets in the company of your fellow travellers.​
Alternatively, if you'd like to discover more we offer a fabulous optional excursion to My Son. This is a major religious centre in the Champa Kingdom, and the cluster of ruined Hindu temples you will see were constructed between the 4th and the 14th century AD and dedicated to the god Shiva.

​Today we'll fly to Ho Chi Minh City. Better known as Saigon, it is a city of amazing contrasts, where evidence of former French colonisation remains and sits alongside the fascinating culture of a predominantly Buddhist population.
Tonight you've the chance to see the sights by Jeep on an optional tour which takes in magnificent French colonial monuments such as the Opera House, City Hall, Notre Dame Cathedral and the Central Post Office. We'll also explore the bustling night market, which sells everything from jewellery to noodles, and mingle with the crowds who come into the city to enjoy its vibrant nightlife. We'll end our tour at a rooftop bar, where we'll take in panoramic views and enjoy a drink.

​The Cu Chi Tunnels are an amazing series of underground passages first constructed in the late 1940s by the peasant army fighting the French and later extended by the Viet Cong rebels. You can see them today on our optional excursion. Alternatively, explore Ho Chi Minh City at leisure before joining our afternoon tour of the city's highlights. We will visit the former Presidential Palace, the War Museum and the famous shopping street formerly known as Rue Catinat, we will also make a stop at the market if time permits. We end our tour with a tasting at East West Brewing, the city's first craft beer brewery. Your farewell dinner tonight is served in a local restaurant.

​The River Mekong descends for 3,000 miles from the Tibetan Plateau to the South China Sea and is constantly busy with sampans, barges and houseboats. As we journey into the depths of the Mekong Delta on today's included excursion, our first stop will be at Cai Be, where we will board a boat to cross the water before cruising through lush forest, narrow inlets and canals to a local restaurant for lunch. We will also visit local workshops along the way to see how the locals live in this facinating part of Vietnam.

Those choosing to extend their holiday with the Cambodia add-on will continue to Can Tho for an overnight stay. The rest of the group will return to Ho Chi Minh City

​Today we'll transfer to the airport for our return flight to the UK.​

​You'll arrive back in the UK today.

Ho Chi Minh - Cu Chi Tunnels

Ho Chi Minh - Cu Chi Tunnels

from £32

Click for more info

This tour will take you out of the city centre to the Cu Chi regions, where you will visit the vast underground network of tunnels built first as a defence against the French, and later expanded during the American war. It was from here that the North Vietnamese waged their guerrilla warfare and you will marvel at their ingenuity and resilience. See secret trapdoors, underground kitchens, living areas and meeting rooms. The more adventurous may explore the deeper second, and even third level tunnels. For those preferring to remain above ground, there is ample opportunity to view excavated areas from above. Your guide will advise you of the length and level of difficulty of each tunnel before entering - some are easily accessed by stairs. We recommend good walking shoes and sun protection for this tour and advise you may get a little dirty!

Half day - Moderate walking - Historical Interest

Hoi An - My Son

Hoi An - My Son

from £46

Click for more info

Often referred to as the "Angkor Wat" of Vietnam, the Cham ruins at My Son are well worth the slightly arduous journey needed to reach them! Your day will begin with an early morning drive through 60 km of rolling countryside, passing through small towns with markets in full swing, often journeying alongside the wide reaches of the Han River. As you draw closer to My Son, which translates literally as "Beautiful Mountain" the condition of the road begins to deteriorate and the last few kilometres of track are often rutted and potholed. On arriving at the My Son area you will travel for the last spectacular 3 km bump and jolt along a river gorge. Finally, a 500m walk through lush hillsides, trees and brush, before emerging into the main site. There were over 70 classic Cham monuments at My Son, dating from the 7th - 13th Centuries. Set against the backdrop of the appropriately named Cat's Tooth Mountain, they would then have been an awesome sight. Until 1968 they remained, remarkably, in almost perfect condition, having been sheltered from the worst excesses of weather by the surrounding hills. Regrettably however, man achieved what nature could not and B52 bombers destroyed most of the towers when My Son found itself in a free-fire zone during the Vietnam War. Your guide will offer full commentary on the Cham heritage of My Son whilst you wander at will around this most historic UNESCO site. Lunch will be taken at a local restaurant en-route back to your hotel.

Extended Half Day - Moderate walking (some uneven ground) - Must See
