Day 1: UK To Hanoi
Today we'll fly to Hanoi.
Day 2: Hanoi
On arrival in Hanoi, we'll transfer you to your hotel. After time to settle in, get to know your travelling companions over a drink and dinner this evening.
Day 3: Hanoi
Hanoi is Vietnam's vibrant capital, and this morning we include a tour here. See the restored Opera House, the One Pillar Pagoda and Ba Dinh Square, where silent sentries guard the marble and granite mausoleum where Ho Chi Minh lies in state. A great way to experience this lively city is aboard cyclos – Vietnam's answer to the rickshaw. Step aboard your cyclo in the afternoon for a tour of the ancient quarter, or 36 Streets district as it is also known.
Day 4: Halong Bay
UNESCO-listed Halong Bay is truly beautiful and today we're going to explore it in style. We'll board a traditional boat for an overnight cruise amongst its idyllic waters. As we sail, we'll be able to admire the dramatic limestone peaks that rise sharply out of the sea, and we'll even enter one of the vast caves to gaze at the gigantic stalactites and stalagmites that have formed over centuries.
Day 5: Hue
You'll wake to stunning views of Halong Bay today, and you can enjoy a morning at leisure on the boat. You could take part in a Tai Chi session on deck, or maybe you'll just choose to sit and take in the gorgeous scenery with a cup of coffee before we disembark. We'll then transfer to the airport for our flight to Hue, the former capital of Vietnam.
Day 6: Hoi An
We'll get out and explore Hue this morning on an included tour of its main highlights. We'll take in the beauty of the Thien Mu Pagoda, which boasts a stunning setting overlooking the Perfume River. We'll also see the elaborate royal tombs of Tu Duc, considered one of the most beautiful sites in Hue, and Khai Dinh, which sits on the side of a mountain and is accessed by climbing more than 100 steps.
Day 7: Hoi An
Discover beautiful Hoi An on a walking tour of this ancient riverside town, which is quite simply the most enchanting place on the Vietnamese coast. We will wander among its quaint streets, where we'll see highlights including the Japanese Covered Bridge, a 200-year-old merchant’s house and the 15th century Chuc Thanh Pagoda. If you'd like to explore further, why not join an optional bicycle ride past homes, vegetable gardens and fruit orchards before we reach a quaint village where the locals will offer us a warm welcome.
Day 8: Hoi An
During a free day you could spend time enjoying the facilities at your hotel or exploring the town and its vibrant temples and markets in the company of your fellow travellers.
Day 9: Ho Chi Minh City
Today we'll fly to Ho Chi Minh City. Better known as Saigon, it is a city of amazing contrasts, where evidence of former French colonisation remains and sits alongside the fascinating culture of a predominantly Buddhist population.
Day 10: Ho Chi Minh City
The Cu Chi Tunnels are an amazing series of underground passages first constructed in the late 1940s by the peasant army fighting the French and later extended by the Viet Cong rebels. You can see them today on our optional excursion. Alternatively, explore Ho Chi Minh City at leisure before joining our afternoon tour of the city's highlights.
Day 11: Mekong Delta
The River Mekong descends for 3,000 miles from the Tibetan Plateau to the South China Sea and is constantly busy with sampans, barges and houseboats. As we journey into the depths of the Mekong Delta on today's included excursion, our first stop will be at Cai Be, where we will board a boat to cross the water before cruising through lush forest, narrow inlets and canals to a local restaurant for lunch. We will also visit local workshops along the way to see how the locals live in this facinating part of Vietnam.
Day 12: Ho Chi Minh City To UK
Today we'll transfer to the airport for our return flight to the UK.
Day 13: UK
You'll arrive back in the UK today.
