Look just beneath the surface of this country and youll discover the authentic Vietnam; a potpourri of beautiful landscapes and vibrant cities, striking coastlines, sandy beaches and welcoming locals. A Vietnam where ancient custom sits happily alongside the modern and where the street is still the heart of social life colourful floating markets bobbing on the river, vendors selling local delicacies, the washing of laundry alongside the riverbank and market squares where gossip and tales are shared. Immerse yourself in the sights, sounds and smells of Vietnam. Our journey takes us from Ho Chi Minh City (formerly Saigon) in the south to Hanoi in the north. From Ho Chi Minh City with its beautiful French colonial buildings, well explore the Cu Chi tunnels used during the Vietnam War by the Viet Cong. Next to the charming, ancient town of Hoi An, where we visit the UNESCO site of My Son, and visit some local villages to get€quainted with the local people. We travel over the breathtaking Hai Van Pass to the Imperial City of Hue and take a trip on the Perfume River before continuing to the city of Hanoi where we have a full day sightseeing. We move on to the attractive Mai Chau Valley to visit some of the local villages and walk in the tropical countryside. Halong Bay is next, for an extensive cruise amongst the distinctive 3000 limestone islands and stacks forming this quite remarkable scenic phenomenon. We enjoy some breathtaking walks in Sapas lush countryside before we return to Hanoi.
