Classic Vietnam SummaryAdd to Shortlist
Formerly known as Saigon, Ho Chi Minh City is an exciting and dynamic city brimming with street vendors, cyclos, temples, shops and colonial architecture.
The Mekong Delta is the lifeblood of South-East Asia, and this fertile region within Vietnam is a maze of canals brimming with life, markets and tropical foods.
With countless food stalls, restaurants, museums and markets, the busy streets of Ho Chi Minh City have something for everyone to enjoy.
Once referred to as the 'Cannes of the Orient', Nha Trang's sandy palm-lined beach and island-dotted bay still make an idyllic picture, and a cosmopolitan feel prevails in the town itself.
With lantern-lit streets, vibrant markets, skilled tailors, artisan shops, ancient houses, colourful temples and beautiful smiles, Hoi An is a Vietnamese wonderland.
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.
Hanoi is famous for its tranquil lake settings, French-colonial architecture, ancient temples, delectable cuisine and as the resting place of the revered former leader, Ho Chi Minh.
Halong Bay is a place of surreal beauty, with ethereal limestone islands jutting out of jade waters and atmospheric caves and grottoes carved out by time.
With a vibrant Old Quarter to explore, delicious food to discover and a city where ancient meets modern with ease, no wonder Hanoi is a favourite with travellers.

Classic Vietnam, March 2014
I loved traveling with Intrepid, it was very organized and I believe that I got to experience more with this group than if I traveled by my self. I don't believe I could have asked for a better leader than Phat. Phat was a very nice, funny, approachable person in which he made me feel like home. There were a couple of "difficult" people in our group and Phat handled it in an appropriate manner while trying to make everyone happy. He helped me when my purse was stolen and answered every question that I had throughout the tour. I believe that Phat is a very hard worker and I could tell that he loved his job and showing us the way that his culture lives. His English and knowledge about the tour was beyond amazing and I truly felt like I couldn't of asked for a better person to show me around Vietnam. Phat is a GREAT leader as well as person.

Classic Vietnam, May 2014
Trung was an amazing tour guide! I was so happy that i got him to show me around Vietnam. He was very knowledgeable and would share his families experiences throughout the history of vietnam and how it is to live there now. He went out of his way continuously to ensure everyone was comfortable and enjoying there time on the tour. I even saw him after the tour in Hanoi and he was all smiles and ready to help me find my way back to where i was trying to go!
