Vietnam holidays

A historical and once turbulent land

Vietnam’s cities and towns offer a spectrum of contrasting delights from French-colonial houses to Chinese temples; chaotic markets to designer boutiques; and flavourful street food to high-end restaurants. Cyclos contend with mopeds for space on the main roads whilst centuries-old architecture emerges from the shadows of skyscrapers. The attractive coastal cities of Hué and Hoi An boast tranquil rivers and striking architecture whilst Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi offer a more hectic pace, along with historic treasures and contemporary culture.

  • Few countries in the world can offer such a diverse range of culture, history, natural wonder, excitement and outright indulgence and relaxation
  • The UNESCO World Heritage area of Halong Bay is a must-do - a cruise on a traditional junk is the best way to experience the bay's stunning beauty
  • Our range of escorted tours vary in duration and pace, from leisurely Highlights of Vietnam to The Complete Vietnam where you can expect full days of sightseeing and authentic experiences
  • Vietnam's beaches are typically in the southern half of the country and if you're doing a tour, we recommend you add on a few extra days to relax on the beach
  • The choice of Vietnam beach hotels vary from vibrant beach resorts with entertainment a plenty, to completely secluded luxury hotels with private beachfronts and perfect peace and tranquillity
