Why you'll love this trip

  • Fall in love with Vietnam one bite at a time, from pho slurped on a busy street corner to a vegetarian feast in a Buddhist nunnery.

  • Sail through Halong Bay’s limestone karsts and island caves and spend the night checking out the stars on an overnight cruise.

  • Travel like a local on a motorbike tour, riding pillion and taking in the historical pagodas, bridges and villages of Hue.

  • Embrace a slower pace during a private boat tour of the Mekong Delta and meet local craftspeople in the villages that line the river’s myriad waterways.

  • Wander through the remarkably well-preserved streets of Hoi An’s Old Town on a guided tour, where elegant wooden buildings line the canals.
