Enjoy breakfast at KOTO, a restaurant helping Hanoi's disadvantaged youth. Jump on board one of Vietnam's famous cyclos and take a ride through Hanoi's Old Quarter. Then it's off to an evening water puppet show, a form of traditional Vietnamese entertainment that started in rice fields centuries ago.

Day 5 Hue
A former imperial capital and important Buddhist centre, Hue is filled with ancient sites. Discover the Imperial Citadel and the lovely octagonal Thien Mu Pagoda. Explore the lively Dong Ba Market and search for 'poem hats' between the fruit, vegetable and fish stalls. These hats have shadowy scenes of everyday life, which can only be seen when held up to the light. Later, swap the bustle of the markets for the tranquillity of Vietnam's Perfume River with a cruise on a dragon boat.
Days 6-8 Hoi An
Travel past picturesque rice paddies and verdant mountains to the quaint backstreets of charming Hoi An. Meet local kids on a school visit, shop for handicrafts, get clothes tailor-made in rich silks or enjoy a picnic on the beach.
ACCOM: Hotel - 3
Days 9-12 Ho Chi Minh City/Mekong Delta
Fly to Vietnam's fast-paced Ho Chi Minh City and fill up on traditional cuisine at a local market. Visit some elusive Ho Chi Minh City tourist spots, before travelling to remote villages to get a taste of Vietnam's rural life. Afterwards, explore the mangroves of the Mekong Delta by paddling a sampan around the tributaries before boarding a boat to cruise the major waterways of the delta. Back in town, escape the heat of the city and head to Dam Sen Water Park for some aquatic fun, then soak up the last of Ho Chi Minh City where this adventure ends.
