Highlights of Vietnam Tour
Vietnam is a South-east Asian gem of a place for visitors seeking authentic experiences, a welcoming culture and stunning natural beauty too. During this luxury trip to Vietnam, you’ll see the best of Hanoi, its markets and gardens, before travelling to UNESCO-listed Hoi An for a taste of the past, then Saigon, boasting cultural sites and a bustling nightlife to explore. Finish at the Six Senses Ninh Van Bay Resort in Cam Rah, one of the best, most idyllic hotels in the continent.
Fly from Heathrow to Hanoi where, on arrival, you’ll either be transferred to the wonderful Sofitel Legend Metropole Hotel in Hanoi’s French Quarter, or an overnight stay aboard a boat on Halong Bay.
Your first full day in Hanoi is one to remember, first visiting the ever-popular Hoan Kiem Lake, with its famous 13th century Ngoc Son Temple floating at its centre. This atmospheric spot provides a gentle introduction to such a busy city, before heading to the Hanoi Old Quarter. Here, marvel at Imperial style buildings, narrow alleyways and market stalls for a real slice of Vietnamese life. This evening, enjoy a spectacular cruise along Halong Bay, with the option to overnight aboard the luxury boat itself.
This morning, fly south to the charming coastal town of Hoi An, checking into the magnificent, beachside Four Seasons Nam Hai Hotel. Spend the rest of the day at leisure among the grounds of this sumptuous five-star resort.
A walking tour of Hoi An is the best way to get to grips with this enchanting ancient city. A UNESCO World Heritage-listed site, the fishing village of Hoi An is a delight thanks to its authentic streets, rooftop restaurants and intimate temples.
Saddle up for a fun filled day cycling through the surrounding rice fields of Hoi An. Not only scenic, as verdant hills roll into lush green plains, but this exciting tour also makes for a great insight into rural living, Vietnamese style.
A full day at leisure to enjoy the beaches and coastline of Hoi An; either find your own secluded bay or ask for insider tips on the best Hoi An beaches.
Today, travel to Ho Chi Min City, also known as Saigon. Infamous for its role in the Vietnam War, this is today a city of French colonial monuments, nightlife, bars and restaurants. On arrival, check into the Carvelle Hotel and enjoy the rest of the day at leisure.
With such a significant history and important part played in Vietnamese heritage, visiting the Cu Chi tunnels is always an important part of any trip to Saigon. Spend the day exploring this underground labyrinth, which was home to innumerable soldiers during the Vietnam War.
The Mekong Delta, an evocative sprawl of tree-lined canals, floating markets and uninhabitable swampland. It’s full of wildlife, picture-perfect moments, local culture and even old battlegrounds; the perfect way to spend your last day in Saigon.
Your final destination on this Highlights of Vietnam Tour is Cam Rah, a lush coastal resort of subtropical trees leading onto golden sands, and bright blue sea. Once here, check into the glorious Six Senses Ninh Van Bay Hotel, one of the best and most luxurious in all Vietnam.
After a busy trip, enjoy a full day at leisure soaking in the sun, surrounding scenic sights and heavenly grounds of the Six Senses Ninh Van Bay.
Another full day to yourself, why not take to the beach for a private picnic, perhaps a boat trip, sunset cruise, tour of the countryside or even some watersports and island hopping; all available at the Six Senses Ninh Van Bay Resort.
On your last day in Vietnam, make the most of the Six Senses Hotel and its world-class facilities, spa, tennis courts and al fresco restaurants. Take in the views, maybe a private yoga class, or simply enjoy lounging by the pool, book in-hand, of course.
