There is so much to see in Vietnam, from the rugged mountains of the north and the natural beauty of Ha Long Bay, to Ho Chi Minh City and the Mekong Delta in the south. Explore Hanoi, an elegant old French colonial city of tree-lined boulevards and crumbling buildings or head north to the colourful minority villages around Sapa. In central Vietnam discover the old imperial city of Hue and delightful Hoi An with its cobbled streets and colourful markets. To the south lies Ho Chi Minh City and at the tip of the country is the verdant Mekong Delta – a land of houseboats, floating markets and the starting point for cruises on the mighty Mekong River. Vietnam is also home to some of the region’s finest beaches with two tropical islands, Phu Quoc and Con Dao, offering the ultimate retreat. With our knowledge and experience we can help to create a unique holiday to Vietnam that is tailored exactly to your requirements.
