Vietnam Holidays 2019/2020
Vietnam is a country steeped in beauty, from the picturesque locations to the cities and towns frozen in time just ready to be explored. The diverse terrains of rolling rice hills and rural villages are contrasted by the sharp, city of Hanoi that is softened by the traditional architecture and foliage that still clings to the edge of the city. Vietnam is a country of epic beauty and unique heritage. Discover the country's imperial and grand past by visiting the Imperial Citadel and marvel at the incredible architecture.
For cultural and historical experiences, visit the Cu Chi tunnels that the Vietnamese soldiers used to protect themselves from the American soldiers and the Japanese Bridge, built to link the Japanese community to the Chinese quarter; this bridge has become an emblem of a merging of cultures. Don’t miss the Thien Mu Pagoda, one of the oldest and most picturesque religious buildings in Vietnam. Contrast the serenity of cruising along Halong Bay, amongst the ethereal peaks with the bustling Ho Chi Minh Quarter. Visit the floating villages and get a taste of traditional Vietnamese food. Spend some time floating along the Mekong Delta and appreciate the unique landscape of the rounded mountains and visit Hoi An in the evening to truly appreciate the beauty of the strings of lanterns that light up this small town.
