If you enjoy scenic views and beautiful landscapes this is the tour for you. A chance to get to know the real Vietnam.

This epic adventure begins in Hanoi. Get lost in the whirl of colour, commotion and horn-blowing traffic. Visit the father of modern Vietnam’s mausoleum and end the day at a water-puppet show.

Next up you will have breakfast with the kids at the Blue Dragon Charity before leaving the frenetic pace of city life behind to Halong Bay. Swim among the soaring karsts, shimmy into limestone caves and be rocked to sleep by the boat bobbing on the water. Returning to Hanoi, travel overnight on the Reunification Express, bound for Hue.

In Hue you’ll get the chance to imagine the opulence of imperial Vietnam within the Thai Hoa Palace, see the scars of former wars in the Forbidden Purple City or discover the legacy left behind by the fussy Emperor Tu Duc’s tomb. Relax aboard a Perfume River cruise.

A real highlight of this trip is the portion spent in Hoi An. Travel through coastal rice paddies to the fishing village of Lang Co before heading into the mountains and crossing the breathtaking Hai Van Pass. Take a step back in time in the ancient streetscapes of Hoi An. Here there are centuries-old family homes to explore, the wonderful Japanese Covered Bridge to wander across and bowls of mouth-watering cao lau to try.

Whilst in Nha Trang devour a delicious seafood lunch, float in basket boats, then dive into the sparkling waters of the South China Sea.

Your last travelling days will be spent in Ho Chi Minh City. Enjoy a relaxed cyclo tour through the city. Later, take a rowboat along the Mekong Delta. Learn the secrets of longan honey from a family of beekeepers, gain insight into rural Vietnamese life on a village visit before ending the adventure back in the hustle and bustle of Ho Chi Minh City.
