Relish Vietnam’s distinct and energetic character as you journey from Saigon in the south up to Hanoi in the north. Explore the country’s turbulent past, meet the friendly, resilient locals, and get lost in spectacular panoramas on this two-week tour of discovery.
Travel overland through the verdant south of Vietnam – from the riverside life of the Mekong to lush and fresh Dalat, up the beautiful coastline to ancient Hue. Finish off by exploring colonial Hanoi and cruising on tranquil Halong Bay.
An ever-changing country sprouted from tradition and a long line of invaders, Vietnam offers unsurpassed cultural experiences and natural sights. Cycle through lush countryside, taste beautifully spiced food and get to know the locals in the Mekong Delta.
