Scenic Vietnam SummaryAdd to Shortlist
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.

Nha Trang is a charming town on Vietnam's southeast coast with pristine beaches, consistently good weather, a vibrant nightlife and excellent diving.
Formerly known as Saigon, Ho Chi Minh City is an exciting and dynamic city brimming with street vendors, cyclos, temples, shops and colonial architecture.

Scenic Vietnam, May 2014
The whole experience with Intrepid from booking online to departure day was very professional and seamless. On arrival, the hotel staff were expecting me, the tour leader was friendly and approachable and totally on top of making sure everything was organised for us. Thuy was an excellent tour guide. He was approchable, knowledgeable, would intervene in communication breakdowns with the locals, would join in our group activities, would chat with group members, check in with each and every one from time to time to see how we were doing, make sure we were clear about rendez-vous times etc. Extras which Thuy organised were always on time and well organised.

The tour leader Charlie Khanh (Crazy Charlie) went out of his way to ensure that we experienced the real Vietnam.
