Day 1
Flight to Hanoi - you can take a direct option with Vietnam Airlines or a 1 stop flight via another Asian hub with a choice of airlines including Cathay Pacific, Thai Airways, Singapore Airlines, BA and more
Day 2
Arrive to Hanoi this morning, where you will be met at the airport by your driver and guide. Head to your hotel, check in and enjoy time to relax. In the late afternoon your guide will take you to a local Water Puppet Theatre for a traditional show. Afterwards, take a stroll around Hanoi's Old Quarter
Day 3
Your day begins with a leisurely breakfast and a well deserved lie in. Later this morning take a guided tour to visit the "Hanoi Hilton" (Hoa Lo Prison) and explore the city - stop for a local coffee, explore the markets and enjoy the rest of the day at your leisure
Day 4
Today leave the city behind and head into the beautiful countryside around Ninh Binh. Enjoy a scenic drive through this lesser visited part of Vietnam and on arrival we have included a choice of activities; cycle through paddy fields, enjoy a sampan boat ride or take a walk to the Bich Dong Pagoda. Alternatively, just enjoy the afternoon to relax
Day 5
A day at leisure in Ninh Binh - we recommend a visit to the Van Long Nature Reserve for some Monkey spotting!
Day 6
Transfer to Halong City, where you will board your traditional Vietnamese junk for an overnight cruise around Halong Bay. Your cruise will include a range of sightseeing such as cave visits, private beaches, kayaking, squid fishing and cooking demos. Alternatively just sit back and relax on the deck and soak up the stunning views!
Day 7
Wake up to witness the sunrise over the bay and then continue the cruise, before docking at Haiphong and flying down to Central Vietnam. Transfer to your hotel in Hoi An to check in and enjoy an evening at leisure.
Day 8
Full day at your leisure to relax on the beach
Day 9
Another full day at leisure - Hoi An is the best place to get some new clothes, so visit the tailor or head out to the Cham Islands for some snorkelling or diving
Day 10
Full day at leisure - we recommend a morning cooking lesson or cycle tour of the countryside, or even a traditional fishing lesson
Day 11
Your final full day on the beach - if you don't fancy lounging around visit the My Son ruins by Jeep or take a day trip to Hue
Day 12
Fly from Danang south to Saigon. This afternoon we have included a fun street food walking tour but for the more adventurous we highly recommend upgrading this to a tour by vintage vespa!
Day 13
This morning you can enjoy an option visit to the Cu Chi Tunnels to practice your skills with an AK47 or climb through the tunnels, or alternatively spend the day at leisure and exploring the city at your own pace
Day 14
Today you will get to escape the city and head into the heart of the Mekong Delta. The Delta is a great place to relax and enjoy your last few days in Vietnam in beautiful peaceful surroundings. From your lodge you can enjoy local sightseeing such as cycle tours, cooking classes, boat trips or lovely walks around the local villages
Day 15
A full day at your leisure in the Mekong Delta
Day 16
