Recommended itinerary

Days 1-3


Your incredible adventure begins in Hanoi, Vietnam’s capital, where you’ll be swept up in the melee of busy streets, fragrant with spices, riddled with scooters, and overlooked by a mix of architecture from occupations past. The Mövenpick Hotel will prove a soothing sanctuary to return to after you’ve spent a day with a private guide getting to know the city at your own pace and tailored to your interests.

Ho Chi Minh City

Day 4

Halong Bay

You’ll be collected from Hanoi for the four-hour drive to Halong Bay to board the elegant Au Co ship, where you’ll spend a night onboard. You’ll disembark to cycle to a village on Cat Ba Island and have the chance to swim in the lagoon around Viet Hai pier. Come morning, join guests on the deck for t'ai chi and a spot of kayaking before heading to Hanoi airport for your onward flight to Hoi An.

And while the Almanity Hoi An Resort & Spa has plenty to keep you lingering, you won’t miss out on the sights of Hoi An. You’ll join a private guided walking tour to get your bearings, visit Cau Temple, and take a boat trip along the Thu Bon River.

Ho Chi Minh City

A flight from Hoi An brings you to the vivacious Ho Chi Minh City to spend three memorable nights in the city once known as Saigon. You’ll explore the city with a private guide on a tour tailored to you, whether you want to go places the locals love or see the main sights. A second day has you boarding a boat on the magnificent Mekong Delta to watch local life unfold on the riverbanks.

Your adventure finishes with some well-deserved downtime on the beach in Phuket, where there are four nights to relax and reflect on your incredible holiday.
