Ho's Hanoi & Junk 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 board our comfortable junk to enjoy a cruise among the awesome limestone cliffs and clear waters of Ha Long Bay.
Hoi An & Hue
Flying south we spend three nights in Hoi An, a historic port which is now a UNESCO-listed World Heritage Site and a renowned for its quirky crafts and excellent tailors shops. We plan sample the delights of Vietnamese cuisine here at a cooking class. Driving via Marble Mountain, 'China' Beach and Danang we arrive in the old Imperial capital of Hué where we see the treasures of the old Nguyen dynasty, the Museum and Citadel, and there's the option to take a boat trip on the Perfume River or ride a bike to the Thien Mu Pagoda.
Saigon, the Delta & Angkor
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; cruising its waterways we discover a beautiful and fertile region with colourful markets full of interest. A flight takes us to our journey's end in Cambodia at Siem Reap where we explore the ancient and spell-binding city of Angkor built by the Khmer kings some 800 years ago.
