Old Quarter & Cruise
Arriving in the beautiful city of Hanoi we visit some of the ancient temples of the city and the humble stilt house cottage in which Ho Chi Minh once lived. We also take time to wander through the street markets of the Old Quarter, named after the crafts on sale - Silk, Paper and Basket. Then, travelling to Bai Chay, we enjoy a cruise among the awesome limestone cliffs and clear waters of Ha Long Bay.
Hue & Hoi An
We board the famous 'Reunification Express' train as our journey turns southward. Arriving next morning at the old Imperial capital of Hué, we see the treasures of the old Nguyen dynasty, the Museum and Citadel, and take a boat trip on the Perfume River to the Thien Mu Pagoda. Then, driving via Danang, we visit 'China' Beach and Marble Mountain before reaching historic Hoi An.
From Ho Chi Minh City
Our sightseeing in Ho Chi Minh City includes the colonial buildings of Old Saigon and 1970's kitsch of the Reunification Hall. In the countryside beyond we visit the infamous Cu Chi Tunnels - an underground base that hid 10,000 Viet Cong troops. We also visit the Mekong Delta; travelling by boat along its waterways we discover a beautiful and fertile region with colourful markets full of interest, and spend a night with local families at our homestay.
Our first stop is the capital, Phnom Penh, where we visit the National Museum of Arts, the Royal Palace, the horrifying Tuol Sleng museum and the 'Killing Fields' of Choeung Ek. From here we drive to Siem Reap, our base for exploring the ancient and spell-binding city of Angkor built by the Khmer kings some 800 years ago.
