From the graceful, tree-lined boulevards of Hanoi’s French Quarter to the faded merchants’ houses of Hoi An, Vietnam is a place that will linger in your memories long after your visit is over.
A patchwork of brilliant green rice paddies and mist-shrouded mountains, few places capture the imagination quite like Vietnam. This is a country steeped in history and rich in culture; lined by an unbeatable coastline and famed for its mouth-watering national cuisine.
Speak to our experts and they’ll tell you about cruising the emerald waters of Halong Bay, about the architectural riches of imperial Hue and the beautiful coastal port of Hoi An where silk, spice and tea have been traded for centuries.
They’ll also recommend rising early when you’re in the capital, Hanoi, and heading down to Hoan Kiem Lake – a fine vantage point from which to watch this fascinating city come to life. For immaculate beaches, there’s the Con Dao archipelago with its stunning Six Senses Resort, as well as the inviting shores of Nha Trang where you can bathe in the warm turquoise waters of the South China Sea.
And no tailor-made itinerary to Vietnam would be complete without a tour of the fast-growing metropolis of Ho Chi Minh City (formerly Saigon), where gleaming skyscrapers tower over bustling night markets and charming French colonial buildings.
Prepare to be captivated by your experience of Vietnam.
