  Brief itinerary


Day 1 Hanoi 
With its graceful boulevards, tranquil lakeside parks, colourful markets and misty atmosphere, Hanoi evokes a certain timelessness. Soak it up on a cyclo ride around town, or rise early to join a morning tai chi session at Hoan Kiem Lake. 

Days 2-3 Halong Bay junk overnight
Step on to the wonderful sailing junk, enjoy a sumptuous lunch while cruising amongst the majestic limestone karsts of Halong Bay. Spend the day swimming, soaking up the sun on the upper deck or trying your hand a kayaking. 

Day 4 Hanoi sight seeing 
Further exploration of the capital city with Ho Chi Minh complex and Old Quarter, savour some traditional northern fare and a performance of Vietnam's famous water puppets. 

Days 5-6 Hue
The former imperial capital of Hue is a quiet city renowned for its magnificent architecture. Take a tour through the Citadel, royal tombs, pagodas and temples, many of which were built during the reign of the Nguyen Dynasty. 

Days 7-8 Hoi An 
This is one of the most captivating towns along the coast. Take a scenic bike ride down to Cua Dai beach, take a Vietnamese cooking lesson or get a whole new wardrobe tailored - including the shoes!.

Days 9-11 Nha Trang
Laze on the golden beaches among swaying palms, enjoy deep blue water and scrumptious seafood on board a converted fishing boat. Cruise past islands and stop off now and then for a dip in the South China Sea. 

Day 12 Sai Gon (Ho Chi Minh City)
With a population of approximately 6 million, Ho Chi Minh City is the largest city in Vietnam. The huge number of people rushing about their daily business gives Ho Chi Minh City a vital and dynamic atmosphere. 

Days 13-14 Mekong Delta Homestay and Cu Chi Tunnels
A venture down to the Cu Chi Tunnels followed by a cruise in the Mekong Delta, a maze of islands and rivers where there are no cars and the only form of transport is by sampan. Explore the area in our own boat, past floating markets and friendly villages and spend the night in a local house.

Day 15 Sai Gon 
From ancient pagodas to the former Presidential Palace and Chinatown markets, there is plenty of contrast and history in this fabulous city. Explore more and practice bargaining in the markets or cruise down the Saigon River before our 'last supper' at one of the city's finest restaurants.
