Join us on this 14-day, guided trip and explore some of the most important destinations in Vietnam from Hanoi to Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City), taking in the culture, history and natural beauty of the country along the way. Start your trip from the capital city of Hanoi, where you’ll see some of the major sights during a guided tour before heading to the beautiful Ha Long Bay.

Discover this natural wonder during a luxury, two-night cruise before heading south to the UNESCO World Heritage city of Hue. Explore its walled citadel and make your way to the historic port city of Hoi An. Then fly to Saigon and see some of the city’s famous landmarks during a private, guided tour.

The final destination on the itinerary is the lush Mekong Delta. Cruise down its winding waterways, past floating markets, mangrove forests, Khmer pagodas and lush green paddy fields. Return to Saigon at the end of your trip. We will drop you to the airport for your flight home.
Hotel
Upon arrival at Hanoi Airport, you will be met by a Wayfairer representative and transferred to your chosen accommodation. Your tour guide will meet you at your hotel in the evening to brief you about the trip.
Hotel
Your private, guided tour of Hanoi starts in the morning. Visit the historic Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum, an imposing monument lavishly built using marble and granite where the preserved body of Uncle Ho resides. A short walk from the mausoleum is the lotus-shaped One Pillar Pagoda, resting on a single stone pillar emerging from the water.

Visit the Temple of Literature, the first university in Vietnam. Created for the sons of mandarins, it is the perfect place to get an overview of Hanoi's history and culture. Head for the Museum of Ethnology next. This museum offers a fascinating insight into Vietnam’s natural and cultural history, as well as information on its 54 ethnic minority groups.

The evening is free for you to discover more of Hanoi. You may wish to explore Hanoi’s Old Quarter, a maze of narrow lanes crammed with shops, art galleries, boutique shops, trendy cafes and restaurants.
Meals
  • Breakfast
Boat
Head east from Hanoi to the UNESCO World Heritage site of Ha Long Bay, famous for its serene, emerald waters and towering limestone islands topped by rainforests.

Upon arrival, you’ll be met by your crew and board a traditional junk, which will be home for the next two nights. This stylish, authentic boat has cozy cabins with en suite facilities and you’ll receive attentive service from the friendly crew.

Once all the passengers are on board you’ll set out into the emerald waters of the Gulf of Tonkin to explore the hundreds of limestone islands and islets. Stop to visit some of the floating communities along the way.

As the day draws to an end, the top deck is the perfect place to watch sunset in this magical location.
Meals

Meals
  • Breakfast & Lunch

Catch the flight south to the ancient city of Hue after breakfast. Located on the banks of the Huong River (also known as the Perfume River), Hue is one of the most historically significant cities in Vietnam.

Most of Hue’s historic attractions are located close to the river. Enjoy a dragon boat trip in the afternoon to the village of Huong Long and see the iconic Thien Mu Pagoda, a seven-storey pagoda which also acts as the unofficial symbol of the city. Also discover the majestic tomb of emperor Ming Mang.
Meals
  • Breakfast
Hotel
Today you’ll visit the spectacular Imperial Citadel (also known as the Complex of Hue Monuments). This is the most popular landmark in Hue and it was recognised as a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1993. This massive complex features hundreds of monuments dating back to the early 19th century, including the Forbidden Purple City, royal tombs, pagodas, temples, royal quarters, a library and museum. The historical complex is known not only for its rich architecture but also for beautiful landscaping.

On the way back you’ll make a stop at the Dong Ba Market, one of the most famous and oldest markets in Hue. This evening you’ll visit a private home in the citadel, where you’ll sample some of the dishes from the emperor's court whilst listening to musicians play traditional music.
Meals
  • Breakfast & Dinner
Hotel
Drive on the most scenic stretch of Highway One. Climb up to the Hai Van Pass, also known as the 'Pass of the Ocean Clouds'. The scenery on the way up is spectacular, as are the views from the top!

Continue to Da Nang, stopping at the Cham Museum en route. Housed in a beautiful colonial villa, this museum has the best collection of artefacts from the Cham empire anywhere in the world. Later, you’ll stop just outside of Da Nang at the base of the Marble Mountains. The five limestone peaks that make the mountains are said to represent the five elements.

Continue your journey to Hoi An. Reach there in the late afternoon.
Meals
  • Breakfast
Hotel
With its cobblestoned streets, narrow canals, colonial buildings and Chinese-style shop-houses, the UNESCO World Heritage site of Hoi An is one of Vietnam’s most beautiful towns. This morning your local guide will take you out on a walking tour of the historic Old Quarter. You are free for the rest of the day today.
Meals
  • Breakfast
Hotel
Today you have a free day to explore Hoi An and the surrounding area. You may wish to head to Cua Dai Beach, located 5km away from the Old Town. Here you can relax on the white, sandy beach and take a dip in the South China Sea.

You also have the option to enjoy water sports such as kayaking and jet skiing, or take a boat trip to the nearby Cham Islands (Please be advised that swimming is safest from April to October due to the monsoon). Excursions to the Cham Islands are seasonal and tourist boats don’t visit the islands during the rainy season when the seas are rough.
Meals
  • Breakfast
Hotel
After breakfast you’ll transfer to Hoi An airport for a short flight to Saigon. Officially called Ho Chi Minh City now, Saigon is a city of contrasts. Skyscrapers sore into the clouds dwarfing the colonial buildings, old ladies chew betel nuts and sell coconut juice to sophisticated young couples riding on modern Japanese motorbikes.

Enjoy a private, guided walking tour of the major sites in the afternoon. See the sobering War Remnants Museum, the Presidential Palace, and some of the colonial-era landmarks such as Notre Dam Cathedral, the Post Office and the Continental Hotel.
Meals
  • Breakfast
Hotel
Head for Tay Ninh, approximately 90km northwest of Saigon, where you’ll visit the spiritual centre of Cao Dai religion. Cao Dai was founded in Vietnam in 1926 as a combination of several other religions, including Islam, Christianity, Buddhism, Taoism, and Confucianism, and it attempts to end religious conflicts by representing aspects of many religions.

Visit the famous Cao Dai Temple in time for the midday service, which you will get an opportunity to participate in. After lunch, you’ll transfer to Cu Chi tunnels, an extraordinary network of underground tunnels first built by the Viet Cong in the 1940s to protect themselves and the people from French air raids.

The tunnels offer visitors a poignant reminder of the hardships brought by wars and an insight into the underground life of Vietnamese soldiers in 1948. If you wish you can crawl through a 100m section of the tunnels to experience what life would have been like for the soldiers.
Meals
  • Breakfast & Lunch
Boat
It is an early start today as you’ll head south from Saigon to the Mekong Delta, one of the most beautiful regions of Vietnam.

This is a region of winding waterways, floating markets, mangrove forests, Khmer pagodas and lush green paddy fields. Known as ‘the rice bowl of Vietnam’ the Mekong Delta produces enough rice annually to feed the entire nation. Exotic fruits, vegetables and fish are also major produce here.

On your way to Can Tho, the economic capital of the Delta, you’ll stop at vibrant floating markets, visit local cottage industries and take a trip on a sampan through some of the narrower canals, stopping for a local speciality lunch of elephant ear fish, springs rolls and fresh fruits.
