The perfect package with flights included
Eight-night tour of Vietnam with five-star hotels, all flights and transfers, multiple excursions and an overnight cruise
Hugging the easternmost tip of the Indochina Peninsula, Vietnam boasts miles of shock-white coastline and some of the most phenomenal scenery on the planet. The picture of conical hats bobbing through paddy fields and sailing boats gliding past mystical islets is accurate - this is a country that'll put your imagination in a spin.
Your eight-night tour begins in Hanoi, with two nights at Hotel de l'Opera. See pagodas, temples and the knotted Old Quarter, where motorbikes whizz through the pulsating streets. Next: Halong Bay. Swim in jade waters and spend the night on a dreamy junk ship, before heading to Hoi An for two nights at the Sunrise Hoi An Hotel. While here, you'll stop at ancient merchants' houses, a 400-year old Japanese covered bridge, lively market and lantern workshop (with the chance to make your own).
Moving on to the historic capital of Hué (with a night's stay at La Residence), you'll see the ornate tomb of Emperor Minh Mang and visit the labyrinthine 'Forbidden City' within the Imperial Citadel. A Buddhist prayer recital at the vertiginous Thien Mu Pagoda will have you feeling superbly zen - the perfect mood for your sunset cruise that avo, and journey to Ho Chi Minh City the following morning for two nights at the Sheraton Saigon Hotel & Towers. Either return home on the ninth day, or extend your travels with a five-night beach holiday at the exotic Anantara Mui Ne Resort & Spa in Phan Thiet.
This luxury adventure is fully escorted and includes return flights with Malaysia Airlines, domestic flights, return coach transfers and accommodation at five-star hotels on a bed and breakfast basis (with the exception of a few featured meals). Please note: a visa is required prior to travel. It is also worth noting that both your outbound and inbound flights are overnight - so please bear this in mind when planning your time away from work.
