Discover Vietnam accompanied 15 day tour
starts from £2,950
Come and discover why Vietnam is on so many people's bucket list. A vibrant country which offers so much variety, spectacular scenery, world heritage sites, history and fascinating people. I was fortunate to get to know both Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh during my time in Vietnam. They are so different but each offers its own attractions. Hanoi is the cultural capital, while Ho Chi Minh is a vibrant modern city. Trekking in Sapa was amazing, not just the scenery but meeting the different ethnic people. The overnight sleeper train from Hanoi to Sapa is a hoot!
Day 1 to 3, welcome to Hanoi.
Visit the famous museums and cultural icons, explore Hoan Kiem Lake and stroll around the Old Quarter in the evening, begin your love affair with Vietnamese food!
Day 4 to 5 spend time in Ninh Binh, and enjoy boat trips along the lake. Admire the beautiful hills and rice fields along the way.
Day 6 Drive to Halong Bay a UNESCO world Heritage site and spend a night on the water. enjoy the spectacular limestone formations and the short detours along the way.
Day 7 return to Hanoi, to sample evening cocktails at the famous Sofitel Metropole, try the Charlie Chaplin! First drink is on me.
Day 8 and 9 Travel to Hue and discover the history of the ancient capital, and the Imperial City complex. Visit nearby picturesque fishing villages.
Day 10 to 11 transfer to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Hoi-An via the Hai Van Pass. Experience breathtaking vistas along the way, and stop off at Marble Mountain. I have done this journey on the back of a motorbike, you choose how you want to experience it. Once in Hoi-An, enjoy meandering around the quaint little streets and being welcomed into the houses of this charming former port city.
Ho Chi Minh
Day 12 to 15 Ho Chi Minh City, discover the history of the Vietnam war, enjoy a Vespa tour of the city, fancy an introduction to craft beers or perhaps sampling the street food. Meet you at the Caravelle Rooftop bar for cocktail hour at sunset, I'm buying!
