Classic Vietnam 9 Days/ 8 nights

This itinerary is designed to capture the real essence of Vietnam . Begin your journey from its atmospheric capital, Hanoi. Visit 1,000-year-old temples and colorful markets to get a glimpse into the traditional Vietnamese way of life that sits side-by-side with modern office buildings and luxury hotels. Head east to stunning Halong Bay where a cruise amongst the fantastically carved rock formations is followed by a delicious seafood feast and an overnight stay anchored in a tranquil jade-green lagoon. Moving south to Vietnam’s historic capital of Hue, tour the impressive tombs while dining on exquisite imperial dishes fit for an emperor. The nearby port town of Hoi An will charm even the most jaded of travelers with her quaint sandy lanes, intricately decorated pagodas and restored shop-houses from the 16th century. Next, arrive in bold, brash Saigon to witness the vast economic developments that have swept through Vietnam. Bustling markets overflowing with tropical fruit beg to be explored, and shopping opportunities in Saigon will surely satisfy travelers eager for unique handicrafts. Then travel south to the verdant Mekong Delta, known to the Vietnamese as the “River of Nine Dragons”. This flat, fertile region is home to fishermen, farmers and breathtaking rural landscapes. Your final day will be spent visiting the Cu Chi tunnels, 40km from Saigon. This impressive network of tunnels was in use during the “American War” and is a reminder of the Vietnamese passion for defending their country against invaders. Get to know Vietnam. Experience a land filled with history, charm and smiles and bring home memories to last a lifetime.
