Our favourite Vietnam routes to inspire your trip - or contact us to start from scratch

It's our humble opinion that if everyone liked the same things, the world would be a boring place.

Some of us love sky bars and art galleries, while others like mountains, forests, and mucking around in rice fields. Heck, some of us like a bit of both. There are no rules when it comes to what you enjoy – and that’s what we’ve tried to reflect in our choice of itineraries.

We built these example routes from personal experience, weaving together the best bits from our own trips through Vietnam – but don’t let our preferences limit you. We want you to be inspired – but we also want to know what you love to do. It’s all about combining your ideas with our expertise to tailor a trip that fits you as beautifully as a Savile Row suit.

Our favourite places in Vietnam

Vietnam stretches the length of the Indochinese Peninsula, all the way from its cultural heartland in Hanoi, ringed by high mountains inhabited by isolated hilltribes, to the bountiful Mekong Delta in the far south, where floating markets overflow with the region's rich produce.

Here's our guide to the best known, plus some lesser known favourites.
