Revel in the unique vibe of this riverside city, which is both a place on the move and one with a distinct, and at times quite complex, personality.
Wake early and prepare for a stunning sunrise. Watch the sun’s rays light up every corner of Angkor Wat before spending the rest of the day temple-hopping around the complex. Later, visit the residents of the Angkor Centre for Conservation of Biodiversity. Learn about the native wildlife of Cambodia, understand the threats they face and meet some of the endangered species.
Roam the French-style cafés and serene pagodas and get immersed in the daily life of the city.
Satisfy your tastebuds and your conscience at KOTO, a restaurant that supports former street children. Stop by Vinh Trang Pagoda, then set sail on a Mekong Delta excursion.
Rise early to mingle with locals in the Mekong River's famous floating markets. Visit the mind-boggling Cu Chi Tunnels on the way back to Ho Chi Minh City, then enjoy the sights of the city on a walking tour.
With a dramatic mountain backdrop and a shimmering sea, Nha Trang is the perfect place for a beach break. Enjoy a cyclo tour and then cruise the nearby islands, stopping to swim and snorkel in the balmy sea. Feast on the day's catch before experiencing Nha Trang's famed nightlife.
Wander among the stalls of the rambling Hoi An markets. Take a trip to My Son and see some ancient Cham ruins, or head to the Cua Dai Beach for a sun-soaked afternoon.
Discover the ruins of the Imperial Citadel and royal tomb, then embark on a tranquil trip down the Perfume River.
Get a culture-fix at the Temple of Literature and the Fine Arts Museum. In the evening, catch a water-puppet performance.
Cruise the waters of Halong Bay on a traditional junk boat, spotting secret grottoes and karst peaks along the way.
Finish up in the heart of Hanoi's Old Quarter and celebrate with a final feast.
