Days 1 - 3


Arrive in Hanoi after an overnight flight and check into your hotel for 2 nights. This is a wonderfully diverse city and the perfect base as an introduction to the history and culture of Vietnam, get an understanding of the Vietnamese story through museums such as National Museum of Vietnamese History and the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum, stroll the streets of the Old Quarter and dive into the wonderful cuisine with a wealth of restaurants and street markets.

Overnight: Movenpick Hotel (2 nights)

Day 3-4

Halong Bay

Following breakfast leave Hanoi for a 3hr 30mins drive to Halong where you will board your traditional sailing vessel for your overnight cruise in the UNESCO world heritage protected Halong Bay. Lunch will be served as you cruise past the limestone karsts and watch the river traffic; after lunch enjoy visiting the ‘Surprising Cave’ before the boat sets anchor for the night and dinner is served on board. The following morning start the day with Tai Chi, and more scenic exploration before returning to the dock around lunchtime, where you will transfer to Hanoi airport for a short flight to Hue.

Overnight: Halong Bay Cruise

Day 4-6


Stay for 2 nights in pre-revolution Vietnam’s former capital and home to the Emperors; the ancient citadel and its museums are designated UNESCO world heritage sites and the fascinating riverside tombs are a lesson in imperial extravagance. Take a trip on the Perfume River, the best way to reach many of the city’s sights.

Overnight: Indochine Palace (2 nights)

Day 6-8

Hoi An

You will be collected by a private driver for the scenic drive down to yet another UNESCO world heritage site, the charming town of Hoi An where you will stay for 2 nights.

We recommend adding a half day guided tour to visit the former merchants’ homes, the 400 year-old Japanese Covered Bridge and the colourful market.

Overnight: Boutique Hoi An (2 nights)

Day 8-10

Ho Chi Minh (Saigon)

This morning, take a short flight to the buzzing metropolis of Ho Chi Minh, where you will be met and transferred to your hotel for 2 nights.
