A feast for the senses, Vietnam takes the vibrant seasoning of charming Hanoi, adds the fragrant spice of Ho Chi Minh and bursts with a fusion of rice fields, pagodas and laid-back beaches in between. Wrapping around South East Asia like a ramen spoon, the country offers a tempting dip into over 1000 miles of diverse landscapes, food and culture nestled against the South China Sea.
Often chosen as a second holiday destination after exploring Thailand, Vietnam has something for everyone. A rich, diverse history and culture, shaped largely by the Vietnam war, some of the most incredible beaches in the world, several UNESCO heritage sites, walking tours, junk boats, amazing food and much, much more.
Here are just some of the highlights you can experience on a luxury, tailor-made holiday in Vietnam:
Five Star Relaxation on Con Dao
50 spacious pool villas run along a mile of sandy beach, sheltered by green forested hills and with stunning vistas of the South China Sea. Bliss.
Junk Boat Tours in Halong Bay
No visit to Vietnam is complete without sailing around the stunning limestone karsts of Halong Bay on a junk boat.
Taking Time To Explore Hanoi
Wide boulevards, ancient pagodas and tree-lined lakes, Vietnam’s capital is also the country’s most atmospheric and beguiling city.
Explore The Beaches Of Phu Quoc
With over 2,000 miles of coastline, Vietnam has some of the best beaches in the world...and many are found on Phu Quoc.
