Spend 13 days in Vietnam discovering the highlights and traditions of this colourful country. This adventure samples the Old World charm in this pocket of Asia, while uncovering the natural treasures of Vietnam’s verdant northwest along the way. Venture into the misty mountains of the Hoang Lien National Park, an evergreen realm where cloud and hills often meet. Return to Vietnamese society and discover the oriental influences that stem from a historic mix of Asian traders, settlers and indigenous people that have made this part of the world a cornerstone for empires and colonies. By visiting cities like Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon) and Hanoi, we uncover that vibrant mix of the various major influences. By stopping in Hoi An and Halong Bay, we discover places of eternal beauty that have also played their part in Vietnam's history. It’s not hard to see why Vietnam is such a popular travel destination. This quick trip travels from enchanting Hanoi and the thrilling natural wonders of Halong Bay to the historical treasure-trove of Hoi An and exciting, full-on Ho Chi Minh City. In between, there is still much to discover – this trip distills the country’s finest moments, with plenty of time for hidden treats and quiet surprises. Highlights/r/n
