The destination
Travellers are truly spoilt by a visit to Vietnam. In this swathe of land clinging to the edge of Southeast Asia, a country of traditions and contrasts awaits. There’s so much to discover, from its conservative, rural north to the bustling metropolises that thunder along to an entirely different pace of life. Vietnam has lush green landscapes packed with ancient temples; exotic islands strewn across paradise beaches; thriving modern cities built on centuries of complex history; and the vibrant waterways of the Mekong Delta. All this, mixed together with the locals’ famed hospitality and some of the world’s most mouthwatering food, makes Vietnam one of the planet’s most unforgettable destinations.

The tour begins with a tour of the capital, Hanoi, before embarking on an overnight cruise through beautiful Halong Bay. The trip continues to Hue, where the winner and their guest can explore the local markets and tuck in to the delicious flavours of Vietnam’s celebrated cuisine. From there, they’ll travel to Hoi An for a guided tour of its atmospheric streets and canals before moving on to Ho Chi Minh City — formerly known as Saigon — to explore the bustling international city and the hidden Cu Chi Tunnels. The experience concludes with a boat ride along the Mekong Delta.
