There are not many countries where a short tour can take in five separate destinations inscribed on UNESCO World Heritage list, but this is Vietnam, where cultural heritage and scenic wonder combine to create a unique and remarkable experience. Our Highlights of Vietnam tour commences in Hanoi's romantic Old Quarter; we go on to visit the majestic scenery of Halong Bay; bask in the unparalleled beauty of Hoi An; cyclo through history in Hue; dive right in to the hustle and bustle of Ho Chi Minh City and make a memorable stay at a riverside lodge deep in the Mekong Delta!
As with all our Essential style tours, the Highlights of Vietnam includes some really good value, well-located accommodation, all transfers and connections and a number of great excursions where we feel you'll benefit most from the support of your Tour Leader and expert guide. The remainder of the time is yours to explore, have your own adventures and make your own discoveries, with the help of your Info-Pack and recommendations from your Tour Leader of course.
The pace of the tour is quite high to enable us to fit in so many highlights, but with a night spent onboard a lovely Chinese-style junk on Halong Bay, a full day in Hoi An, one of Asia's most laid-back towns, and a day exploring the quiet backwaters of the Mekong Delta there's plenty of time to kick-back and relax if that's your style.
We travel by a combination of plane, boat and private coach to get you from place to place in the most convenient and efficient manner possible. For the first-time visitor to Vietnam this is an exciting, active and great value journey covering all of the highlights. We hope you'll join us!
