Day 1
Arrive Hanoi
Welcome to HanoI! Vietnam’s capital is a city of wide, tree lined boulevards with tranquil lakes, colonial villas and a more sedate pace than most other Asian cities. On arrival at Hanoi’s Noi Bai Airport, your guide and driver will be waiting to take you to your hotel in the capital city. This afternoon, wind down and relax after the flight before enjoying a welcome Vietnamese dinner in one of Hanoi's most charming restaurants which is housed in a beautiful villa.

Hanoi
Begin today with an introduction to Hanoi's cuisine during a walking street food tour with a famous local food blogger. Stroll through the Old Quarter to Thanh Ha market, which is the essence of Vietnamese culture. Walk through the Old Quarter to Dong Xuan market to sample some local treats and stroll up ‘food alley’ to see other dishes before stopping at a busy coffee shop. In the afternoon continue exploring with a visit to the Temple of Literature, One Pillar Pagoda and the mausoleum of the father of modern Vietnam, Ho Chi Minh.

Day 3
Hanoi to Halong Bay

As the sun sets over the bay, dinner is served with fresh seafood, salads and fruits. Overnight in Halong Bay.

Day 5

After an included lunch the afternoon is free for you to relax at your luxury beachfront resort or explore more of the old town on your own.

Day 8
Hoi An
A free day to soak up the sun and enjoy the range of resort amenities. Hoi An is a charming, old-world trading port of narrow streets and traditional houses and a great place to explore. In addition to its history and culture, it also boasts long stretches of clean, white-sand beach. In keeping with Hoi An’s heritage as a trading port, the town’s tiny shop houses now host a range of craft shops and artisans including some of Asia’s best bespoke tailors.

Day 9
Hoi An to Quy Nhon
Leaving Danang and Hoi An behind, begin a full day’s exploration along one of the most scenic stretches of coastline that Vietnam has to offer on the way to Quy Nhon.
