VIETNAM DISCOVERER IN LUXURY

14 Day Fully Hosted Small Group Tour

Being one of our luxury diamond tours, this tour has a maximum of 12 guests

 

Join us on our discovery of Vietnam in both comfort and style whilst taking in this amazingly beautiful country.

 

We begin our journey in Hanoi, the capital city of Vietnam, where we discover its rich history, culture, and stories. It is here we get to stay in and explore Hanoi’s Old Quarter, feeling the vibrant energy and taking in the colourful culture of this historic area. It is here we wander through paddy fields, explore local landscapes, and have the chance to enjoy Vietnamese hospitality when we lunch together with a local family.

 

Our next stop is no doubt an unforgettable adventure onboard our luxurious modern cruise boat in Halong Bay. Elite of the Seas is luxurious and quintessential in style however is unique from other junks in Ha Long Bay, being a premium and modern boat, Elite of the Seas offers with the delicious menus, swimming pool, fitness room, mini golf, spa & massage services, along with professional service, and a truly memorable experience. We sail for two nights in breathtaking beauty of this natural wonder witnessing the stunning scenery of this UNESCO World Heritage Site, with its limestone landscapes and floating villages, whilst enjoying the finest cuisine and entertainment onboard.

 

Onwards we then travel to the charming town of Hoi An, discovering the stunning rich cultural and heritage, here we enjoy a boat ride on the Thu Bon River, visit one of Hoi An’s famous lantern workshops,  learning to make our own colourful lanterns and not forgetting our chance to really indulge in local culinary culture with a local cooking class, in a riverside setting — the perfect backdrop to enjoy a meal you just learned to cook.

 

Our tour then heads further south to Ho Chi Minh City, formally known as Saigon, Vietnams most populist city and the economic heart of the country.  The city draws together old and new and from our boutique hotel, “Hôtel des Arts, we journey back in time to Vietnam in 1930s combining the classical charm of French Indochina with a sense of timeless chic, the hotel is as much an art museum as a 5-star boutique hotel”. It is from our base here we visit some of the most important sites related to the Vietnam War, including the Cu Chi Tunnels, and the War Remnants Museum.  Our tour would not be complete without time taken to enjoy the Mekong on our luxury sampan, viewing rural life along the Mekong Delta region.

 

You will be amazed by the beauty, diversity, and richness this country has to offer to from the north to the south.
