The warmth received on a trip to Vietnam is not only received from the sun but the heart-warming hospitality of the Vietnamese people. Famed for their kindness and readiness to connect, the Vietnamese transform a good holiday into a great one. For a quick getaway, head to one of Vietnam’s three regions – North, Central, and South Vietnam.
Start your Northern Vietnam journey by exploring the centuries-old delights of Hanoi, Vietnam’s capital. From Hanoi, gain easy access to the UNESCO-protected Halong Bay. Peace ensues as you sail the towering limestone cliffs through one of the world’s finest natural landscapes. Also in the north, take a bespoke trip to the hill tribes of Sapa, where centuries-old cultures have thrived amid the vibrant rice paddy fields, or visit hill tribes of Muong Hoa Valley. For tea lovers, tea trees centuries old are just waiting to be discovered and admired.
Central Vietnam is home to one of the country’s most popular destinations, the ancient town of Hoi An. This 16th-century haven offers a glimpse into old Vietnam whilst spoiling you with fabulous dining, shopping, and a range of private tours to connect to the history and culture of Hoi An. In nearby Hue, learn the history of the UNESCO World Heritage site of the centuries-old Imperial City.
In Southern Vietnam, compare the thriving metropolis of Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City) with the sleepy pace of life on the nearby Mekong River. You can also learn about Vietnam’s more recent history at the moving Cu Chi Tunnels.
