About the trip

The nature, history and culture don’t even scratch the surface of the draw that Vietnam has for travellers. From foodies and beach hoppers to culture and adventure seekers, Vietnam has something for everyone. Join us on a tour from Hanoi to Ho Chi Minh City and explore this truly amazing gem of south-east Asia.

Vietnam certainly has its fair share of natural beauty, the most breathtaking of which you’ll find at the iconic Halong Bay. Made up of over a thousand limestone peaks, which jut out of the turquoise water like daggers, the bay has become famous for its surreal, otherworldly beauty, which we’ll witness first-hand on our junkboat tour. Then there’s the beaches; this tour ends with a few days at the coastal town of Phan Thiet, where pure white sand and azure shores are commonplace.
