Overview
Exciting and colourful, Vietnam is one of South East Asia's most popular tourist destinations, and on this fabulous 14 day World Heritage tour you will get to appreciate just why. Beginning in the northern capital city of Hanoi, you travel south to Saigon stopping along the way for a cruise out into stunning Halong Bay, then visit the enchanting towns of Hue, Hoi An and Dong Hoi seeing so many of the spectacular highlights of this wonderful country on this comprehensive tour.
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 going out and exploring on your own, possibly trying some of the local cuisine at one of the many traditional restaurants.

Day 2
Hanoi
Today visit the Temple of Literature, built in 1076 and Vietnam's first university, which functioned for an incredible 700 years. Next stop is Hanoi’s UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Thang Long Imperial Citadel followed by the One Pillar Pagoda, one of the country's most iconic temples. Close by is the mausoleum of the father figure of modern Vietnam, Ho Chi Minh, and the former presidents house on stilts. Then visit the Old Quarter and walk through Hang Be market before ending the day with a Water Puppet show.

After an early breakfast leave Ninh Binh for a four hour drive to Halong Bay, Vietnam’s most famous and popular World Heritage site.
