With its striking landscapes, gripping history and rich culture, Vietnam is an outstanding destination on all fronts.
Seas of motorcycles swarm city streets, where lanterns and lacquerware jostle for space and street vendors push carts loaded with baguettes, brooms and fragrant street food. Head out of town and scenes change to remote mountain villages, meandering rivers and white sand beaches.
In Hanoi, faded propaganda posters line the streets of this city of contrasts. Lose yourself in the Old Quarter, Hanoi's ancient shopping district; explore the imposing Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum; or stroll around Hoan Kiem Lake, fringed with locals practicing the sweeping strokes of Tai Chi.
Sail through the breathtaking turquoise waters and limestone islands of Ha Long Bay, one of Asia's most spectacular sights; sunbathe and snorkel on the beaches of Nha Trang; or cruise down the lush waterways of the Mekong River.
Unwind in Hoi An, a charming ancient town of wooden houses and temples, cool cafes and shopping streets lined with silks, lantern and clothing tailors; then head south to Ho Chi Minh City to haggle in the Ben Thành Market and explore the frightening subterranean network of the Cu Chi tunnels.
Trek through the rice paddies and hill tribe villages of Sapa or the idyllic valley of Mai Chau; or join us on a thrilling cycle journey through forested mountains, fertile farmlands and down scenic backroads that criss-cross the Mekong.
From north to south, Vietnam offers a dazzling diversity of experiences, so whichever itinerary you choose you're in for an unforgettable adventure.
