Highlights of Vietnam

This journey explores the hidden Vietnam - from the bustling cities to the isolated highlands. Our journey begins with a tour of Ho Chi Minh City and the Cu Chi Tunnels before heading into the picturesque highlands of Dalat - the traditional home of Vietnam's artists. We continue via the white sands of Nha Trang, exploring Cham Towers and the world heritage sites of My Son and Hoi An, where we immerse ourselves in this stunning place and take time to enjoy its colourful markets. We drive north to the elegant, ancient capital of Hue, before we take an overnight train to Hanoi. Here we will marvel at the colonial architecture, visit a local family for lunch, explore the historical treasures of the city and experience the bustling old quarter. Our journey through Vietnam is completed with a cruise through the tranquil islands and emerald waters of stunning Halong Bay onboard a traditional 'junk' sailing boat.
