Inside Vietnam: Cambodia Laos

Fully Tailored Journey


Golden Vietnam

13 Nights: from US$2335 Trip Code: GV0001

From the towering, rice-terraced mountains of Sapa to the coconut palm-fringed waterways of the Mekong; from towering skyscrapers in Ho Chi Minh City to the laid-back streets of Hoi An's Old Town: our Golden Vietnam itinerary explores all aspects of this spectacular country. Read more >

Our Golden Vietnam itinerary commences and concludes in the country's most exciting, bustling cities: Hanoi and Saigon. In the former you'll have an introduction to colonial relics and streetside dining, while in the latter you'll appreciate modern history with a visit to the atmospheric Cu Chi Tunnels.

Providing a relaxing contrast to the buzz of these cities are two overnight cruises: the first taking you through the spectacular limestone scenery of Halong Bay, the second introducing the laid-back world of the Mekong Delta. A night in the beautiful heart of Vietnam's northern highlands will give you an insight into rural life in remote minority villages, and give you a chance to stretch your legs amid some of Southeast Asia's most impressive scenery.

Your dose of history comes in central Vietnam, where you'll stay overnight in Hue - home to the 19th-century Imperial City - and ancient Hoi An, a World Heritage Site and once-great trading port, where the riverside cafés and crumbling buildings evoke the atmosphere of a bygone age. While here you'll have the opportunity to travel even further back in time with a visit to the ruins of My Son, relics of the ancient Champa Kingdom, which have survived since the seventh century.

This is a fast-paced itinerary packed with standout destinations, offering an excellent combination of relaxation and activity; history and modernity.
