Fly from Hanoi to UK

You've arrived in Vietnam! After a smooth flight, you're ready to begin your journey and explore this wonderful, exotic South East Asian country. Look forward to traditional Vietnamese food (pho, pho and more pho!), historic cities and picture-perfect beaches. Sit back and relax as your private chauffeur takes your luggage and whisks you away through the lively streets of Hanoi to the luxurious Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi. 

Day 2-3
Heartwarming Hanoi

Take your senses on an unforgettable journey through Vietnam's pulsating capital, Hanoi. The perfect place to begin your Vietnam holiday, step into Hanoi's vast history with a trip to the ancient Imperial Citadel of Thang Long, a majestic UNESCO site surrounded by lush foliage, and the One Pillar Pagoda, a historic Buddhist Temple set in a quintessential South East Asian tropical garden. 

Once the sun sets and the streetlights come on, the city is alive as you've never seen it before. The best way to see the sights at speed is by vespa; hold on tight as you soar through the city by a local guide, snaking through the narrow streets of Hanoi and inhaling the aromatic scents of the sizzling street food.

For the best street food, head to the vibrant Hanoi Night Market, and get your hands on some truly authentic pho; no Vietnam holiday is complete without pho! Finish off your pho with a glass of sweet rice wine, and soak up the lively ambiance of bustling Hanoi. If you want to experience any of these incredible trips, then make sure to get in touch with a luxury travel expert who can organise all of these for you!

Day 3
Road transfer from Hanoi to Halong Bay

As your time in Hanoi comes to an end, you're excited for the glistening emerald waters and towering lush islands of Halong Bay, your spectacular next stop on your Vietnam holiday. Your chauffeur will be ready and waiting in Hanoi to speed you along to Halong Pier, where you'll embark on your Paradise Luxury Cruise. As you set sail and cruise into Halong Bay, relax in the luxurious spa facilities on-board as the picturesque natural scenery surrounds you. 

Day 3-4
The Beauty of Halong Bay

Halong Bay is the South East Asia of your dreams; scattered islands covered in lush, green rainforest, glassy emerald water filled with multi-coloured marine life, and rich, maroon sunsets - perfect for a Vietnam honeymoon

As you settle on the comfortable sun loungers on deck, you will be speechless at the magical natural beauty of Halong Bay - it is simply out of this world! Given a World Heritage status in 1994, the mysterious caves, limestone cliffs and mesmerising coral reefs are simply breathtaking. As you dine in luxury onboard, tuck into locally caught seafood whilst feasting your eyes on the small islets as they reach out endlessly to the horizon. 

As you cruise, you'll marvel at the small fishing villages dotted amongst the sparkling waters in Halong Bay. These brightly-coloured floating wooden shacks are a well-established part of Halong Bay, and many of the inhabitants have spent their whole life on the water! Immerse yourself in their unique culture on your Vietnam holiday as the memories of this fascinating encounter will stay with you forever. 

Day 4-5
Road transfer from Hanoi to Sapa

As you wave goodbye to spectacular Halong Bay, you're now on your way to the stunning mountains of northwestern Vietnam. You'll be met promptly at Halong Pier by a chauffeur ready to take you to the train station for your first ever overnight train ride on your Vietnam holiday

A train ride like no other, welcome to the Golden Age of Travel on the stylish Dreamexpress from Hanoi to Sapa. Indulge in the romance of overnight travel as you make your way to north western Vietnam, enjoying the nostalgic elegance of your sleeper carriage before settling down for a relaxing sleep. Once you wake, you'll be arriving into the tranquil town of Sapa for a culture-rich stay surrounded by unbeatable natural beauty.  

Day 5-8
Sublime Sapa

With traditional rice terraced fields, striking mountain peaks and ascending mists that merge with the clouds, Sapa is picture-perfect Vietnamese countryside. Its sweet mountain air and untouched hill communities make this the ultimate tranquil escape. As you arrive at Pao's Sapa Leisure Hotel, you will feel rejuvenated after taking a refreshing swim in the stunning hotel pool; its glass wall facing on to a lush valley is divine!

Conquer Mount Fansipan, Indochina's highest peak, by cable car and avoid the 10,000-feet trek! Included in your tailor-made Vietnam holiday package, you'll be taken from your hotel to the Sun World Fansipan Legend cable car station at the base of the mountain before ascending into heaven. Make sure you've got your camera as you'll need it - this is one incredible view that you'll want to be able to see again and again. 

You can't visit Sapa without visiting the mesmerising rice terraces spread across the mountains as far as the eye can see. You'll experience true Vietnamese hospitality as local people welcome you to their hill-top villages, before guiding you across the rice fields for a memorable experience on your Vietnam holiday

Day 8-9
Road transfer from Sapa to Hanoi

After a serene few days spent in Sapa, you embark again on the luxurious overnight Dreamexpress train back to Hanoi, before making your way to the cultural centre of Hoi An. Watch the sun set behind the mountains as you prepare for a restful sleep aboard your lavish and elegant cabin. As you're swept away for another adventure on your Vietnam holiday, look forward to the warmer climate of central Vietnam!

Day 9
Fly from Danang to Hanoi

You've arrived back in Hanoi after an unforgettable time in Sapa! You'll be met by your private chauffeur at Hanoi Train Station, who will take you to the airport for a short flight to the glimmering coastal city of Danang. Once you've touched down in Danang, you'll be met in true style by a private chauffeur who will relieve you of your luggage and drive you to the historic city of Hoi An. Say hello to 5-star luxury as you arrive at the Sunrise Premium Resort. With direct access to a golden-sand beach and crystal-clear turquoise water, watch the glorious sunset over the East Vietnam Sea, perfect for a Vietnam honeymoon

Day 9-14
Historic Hoi An

Visit Hoi An and you'll experience Vietnam's remarkable fusion of cultures; wander through the higgledy-piggledy streets of Hoi An's Ancient Town, where you can cross the rustic Japanese Covered Bridge, an elaborately carved wooden structure dating from the 18th century. If you're a foodie, head to the Hoi An Central Market, where you can have more pho (you can never have enough!) or try a sensational banh xeo pancake.

Live your South East Asian dream at Tra Que Hamlet and Cam Thanh Village, included in your Vietnam holiday itinerary! After visiting the Cam Thanh's Coconut Village, you'll travel in an intimate 2 person wicker-basket boat down the coconut river, lined with lush, green palms. Learn how to catch crabs from local fisherman and enjoy the soothing sounds of folk songs sung by the local people. This is the ultimate tropical paradise adventure, a brilliant eco-tour that is perfect for a Vietnam honeymoon

For a romantic evening in Vietnam, we recommend you visit the Lanterns at Hoi An. Relax by the waterfront and release your shining lantern down the river, watching its orb-like glow shine on into the distance - it is a truly delightful sight to see! 

Day 14
Road transfer from Hoi An to Hue

Your unforgettable time in Hoi An has come to an end - now on to the ancient city of Hue! You'll be met by a private chauffeur who will take your luggage and carry you off to your next Vietnam adventure. Sit back and enjoy the magnificent scenery of central Vietnam before arriving at the luxurious Indochine Palace Hotel. Enjoy an exotic cocktail in one of the hotel bars as you prepare to explore this majestic UNESCO World Heritage Site. 

Day 14-16
Hue: Exploring the Imperial City

There is so much history to feast your eyes on in Hue - it's difficult to know where to cast your eyes! You definitely won't miss the 7-story Thien Mu Pagoda, a spectacular relic of the Vietnamese Nguyen Dynasty, which sits on the banks of the glistening Perfume River. A visit to Hue is not complete without seeing the Imperial City, the ultimate Vietnamese historical experience. With the majestic, temple-like Meridian Gate standing as the entrance, you'll be mesmerised by the solid stone walls and ornate Asian-style roof - the best time to visit is in the evening, when lights illuminate this impressive structure! Once in the Imperial City, you'll feel like you've travelled back in time as you look in wonder at the lavish palace, the thick stone tombs and the glittering citadel moat.

You have to visit the Dong Ba Market as part of your Vietnam holiday to sample the authentic Vietnamese lifestyle. Packed in amongst the array of intertwining streets are a variety of unique stalls, selling everything from furniture to intricately made souvenirs! Head to the delightful food stalls and soak up the cacophony of sounds whilst tucking into a banh khoai, a Vietnamese stuffed pancake. 

Day 16
Fly from Ho Chi Minh City to Hue

After an incredible stay in Hue, you're now on your way to the final destination of your Vietnam holiday, the vibrant and modern Ho Chi Minh City, formerly know as Saigon. After a private car transfer to the airport, enjoy luxury in the sky as you fly to Ho Chi Minh City. Once you've touched down, you'll be met by a private chauffeur who will speed you along to the 5-star luxury of the Sheraton Saigon Hotel & Towers. Watch the city lights sparkle as you prepare to explore the vast metropolitan jungle. 

Day 16-21
Feeling Hot, Hot, Hot in Ho Chi Minh

Ho Chi Minh City is a warm and vibrant city, vastly different to the north of Vietnam. This difference is most keenly reflected in it's food; you must try Banh Mi, a baguette stuffed full of unique French and Vietnamese flavours. Available on every street market that you stumble across, choose a filling of your choice, whether it be chicken, meatballs - even pate! - and enter food heaven.

Whilst in Ho Chi Minh City, it would be a crime not to go on a Mekong Cruise in the famous Mekong Delta, also known as Vietnam's 'rice basket'. You'll serenely drift along the tranquil water lined with lush palms, passing traditional stilt houses iconic to Vietnam. Taste the tropics as you stop off at a local orchard to try sun-ripened mangoes and citrus-sweet pomelo, as well as sampling authentic honey tea at a bee farm along the river. 

Ho Chi Minh City is a great place to get a greater understanding of the Vietnam war; step inside the narrow Chi Chi Tunnels, built as part of the elusive guerrilla warfare tactics, and learn about the elaborate booby traps that the Viet Cong soldiers devised. Both the Mekong Cruise and the Chi Chi Tunnels are included in your incredible Vietnam holiday!

Day 21-22
Fly from UK to Ho Chi Minh City

Your Vietnam holiday has sadly come to an end - what an incredible adventure it has been! But the luxury doesn't end here. You'll be given the VIP treatment for your entire journey home, starting from getting picked up privately by your personal chauffeur and taken to the Ho Chi Minh Airport. As you descend into the clouds, ponder your trip; from the north, to the middle, to the south, this all-encompassing journey has given you the ultimate flavour of Vietnam. As you drift off to sleep, dream about your fabulous Vietnam itinerary and think about where you next want to visit - our luxury travel experts will be ready to start tailor-making your next unique experience....
