Vietnam is such a diverse country and this 16 day itinerary showcases its varied scenery; travelling to the country’s cities and journeying into the countryside.
In just over two weeks you’ll visit the contrasting cities of Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City and the culturally significant towns of Hoi An and Hue. You’ll step away from the cities and travel to the more rural regions of the Mekong Delta, Phong Nha and Ninh Binh, where paddy fields and small villages provide the scenic surroundings and traditional lifestyles prevail. A highlight of the tour for many is a visit to the impressive Phong Nha cave complex that has recently been discovered in the region’s limestone mountains.
