Essential Vietnam

FURTHER JOURNEYS IN VIETNAM  brown-arrow-right.png

Day 1 - Hanoi
Arrive in the atmospheric capital of Vietnam, Hanoi.

Overnight: Sofitel Metropole

Day 2 - Hanoi
Images of Ho Chi Minh ('Uncle Ho') are everywhere and a visit to his imposing mausoleum is always fascinating, but especially evocative at sunrise for the pomp and ceremony of the flag raising ceremony. The picturesque Temple of Literature was the country's first university and now only teaches the philosophies of Confucianism. A traditional cyclo tour is the best way to explore the colourful narrow streets of the Old Quarter and this is the best place to take in a water puppet show, dating back over 1000 years.

Overnight: Sofitel Metropole

Day 3 - Vietnamese Coast
Transfer to the coast this morning and enjoy the rest of the day cruising through the incredible limestone karsts of Halong Bay. Explore caves and appreciate the views as your traditional junk glides between the islands.

Overnight: Bhaya Legend

Day 4 - Hanoi
Swim in the warm waters of a peaceful bay before a hearty brunch. Return to Hanoi this afternoon and relax by the pool.

Overnight: Sofitel Metropole

Day 5 - Ninh Van Bay Island
Fly south to Nha Trang and transfer by speedboat to the islands of Ninh Van Bay to relax on the beach.
