Mekong & Cu Chi
Our Vietnamese adventure kicks off with a walking tour on the vibrant streets of Saigon (or Ho Chi Minh City as it's officially known) amongst the colonial buildings of Old Saigon and 1970's kitsch of the Reunification Hall. There's the option to visit the infamous Cu Chi Tunnels in the countryside beyond - an underground base that hid 10,000 Viet Cong troops, or to travel by boat along the waterways of the Mekong Delta to discover a beautiful and fertile region with colourful markets full of interest.
Beaches & Boats
Next we head for the delights of the Nha Trang's white sandy beaches and offshore islands, surrounded by warm turquoise seas. Take a boat cruise for the chance to swim, snorkel and stop taste some of the fresh and excellent seafood that abound here. An overnight train takes us to Danang, where we stop off at the nearby 'China Beach' before arriving in the tranquil haven of Hoi An. This historic port has a laid back vibe, great shops and the opportunity for bike rides in the countryside or to the nearby beach. In the old Imperial capital of Hué, we can visit the treasures of the old Nguyen dynasty at the Citadel, or cruise along the Perfume River to the Thien Mu Pagoda.
Reunification Express to Hanoi
We board the famous 'Reunification Express' train to Hanoi and travel to Ha Long Bay for an overnight cruise on a traditional yet quite luxurious junk among the awesome limestone cliffs and clear waters. In Hanoi we explore the atmospheric markets and streets of the Old Quarter, named after the crafts on sale - Silk, Paper and Basket. There's also time to visit the humble stilt house cottage in which Ho Chi Minh once lived or even the man himself in his mausoleum!
