Explore Vietnam Summary

Add to Shortlist

Days 1-2 Hanoi

Arrive early to explore the chaotic capital of Vietnam. Hanoi is an alluring city of contrasts, best discovered on foot. Walk along Hanoi's pagoda-studded lake and perhaps visit some of its rich cultural sights.

Day 3 Hue

As the former imperial capital of Vietnam, Hue holds the treasures of Vietnam's royal past and is a curious mix of bustling streets and tranquil settings.

Days 4-5 Hoi An

Indulge in the riverside delights of beautiful Hoi An. Quaint, yet with an air of French chic, spend some time meandering around the Old Town of this graceful city. Famous for its quality tailors, why not get measured up for a suit, dress or a new pair of leather shoes – with a turn around of 24 hours, it would be mad not to make the most of this shopping paradise.

Days 6-8 Nha Trang

Time for some well-deserved rest and relaxation in the beautiful coastal town of Nha Trang. Grab a snorkel and head out to sea in search of crabs, seahorses and the rare zebra moray eel. Otherwise spend the day on land, worshipping the sun, eating fresh seafood and resting up before another ride on the Reunification Express, headed for Ho Chi Minh.

Days 9-11 Ho Chi Minh City

Hectic, gritty and full of surprises, explore Ho Chi Minh City with a local to discover the secrets of this bubbly metropolis. Perhaps head to the Cu Chi Tunnels for an intriguing history lesson on Vietnamese guerrilla warfare tactics, before taking a trip to the War Remnants Museum. For a little rest and relaxation, why not head to a local pho house for a bowl of slurpy broth, or sit back and watch the world go by from a terraced balcony with a refreshing Vietnamese ice coffee in hand.
