Capture the spirit of magical Vietnam on this comprehensive tour starting from Ho Chi Minh City. Sip coffee with locals in Hanoi and shop up a storm in the Old Quarter, cruise along emerald waters on a Halong Bay boat trip, travel through old-world Hoi An, and get lost in the hustle and bustle of Ho Chi Minh City.

Attractions in Vietnam are plentiful, ranging from stunning natural landscapes, untouched islets and quaint villages to war museums, colonial structures, and ancient citadels. The marvellous Hue Monuments and the My Son Sanctuary will awaken your spiritual side. The Cu Chi tunnels, located outside Ho Chi Minh City, represent the sheer grit and ‘can-do’ attitude of the Vietnamese while a visit to the War Remnants Museum brings home the horrible reality of war.

This is an adventure full of beauty and contrast that paints Vietnam as a country of incredible food, lively locals, stunning scenery and cosmopolitan cities.
