Explore the country
For a complete overview of Vietnam, join an extended tour that will take you across the length and breadth of the country. Start in Ho Chi Minh City and head north, or begin in the capital Hanoi and travel in a southerly direction along the coastline. Either way you're in for a treat as you explore the likes of Hue, Hoi An and the fabulous beachside town of Nha Trang.
Also on offer are a variety of shorter day trips and city tours. A Ho Chi Minh City tour showcases the city's major landmarks, including the Cu Chi Tunnels - an eerie Vietnam War-era network of underground tunnels. Bicycle tours and overnight boat tours, including some to the World Heritage-listed Halong Bay, are yet more great ways to explore Vietnam.
Cities and beaches
The World Heritage-listed city of Hoi An has been dubbed the ‘Venice of Vietnam’ and is renowned for its plethora of tailor shops. Explore the winding cobblestone lanes of Old Town on a private walking tour and admire the heritage architecture, Japanese-style bridges and historic canals. Of an evening you can wander along the lantern-lit riverside and sample authentic Vietnamese dishes in a cosy restaurant.
If soaking up the sun on the beach is more your style, be sure to visit the picturesque China Beach in Da Nang. The 30-kilometre stretch of beach is perfect for water sports including surfing, water-skiing and diving. Nha Trang is one of the most popular beaches and is gateway to island day trips, while Mui Ne is famous for its towering sand dunes.
