Most recommended places to be visited:




Start with the capital, Hanoi, which retains an air of French colonial elegance, with pretty yellow stucco buildings lining leafy streets. Wander round the Old Quarter, a fascinating maze of tiny shops, markets and cafes. Pay respects at the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum. 

Sail through Halong Bay and be amazed by the 3,000 limestone islands rising out of the South China Sea. The area is strange, eerie and deeply beautiful. Many of the islands contain bizarre cave formations and grottoes. 

Enjoy visit in probably the most beautiful city in Asia Hoi Anh, which is UNESCO World’s Heritage site. Charm of this city is indescribable. 

Stay in World’s class luxury hotels in Danang and Hoi Anh. Still very few people knows that there are one of the most wonderfull beach in the World, length for 25km and wide for 100 to 200 meters and has white powder sand ! 

Taste the alpine scenery around Sapa, home to several hill tribes whose way of life has changed very little and who still wear colourful traditional costumes.

Discover the architecture of “Imperial” Hué, the former capital of the emperors of Vietnam, and the remains of the Imperial Citadel (largely destroyed during the Tet offensive in 1968). Tour the nearby mausoleums of several of Vietnam's emperors, including Khai Dinh and Tu Duc, each unique in style. 

To escape the heat of the plains, head for Dalat, a former colonial hill station, reminiscent of a French town, with faded, elegant villas evocative of another era. The romantic lakes and alpine scenery are magnets for Vietnamese honeymooners. 

Savour the lively life on the streets of Ho Chi Minh City, with tiny temples and faded French colonial buildings overshadowed by gleaming high rises. Visit the Reunification Palace and the War Remnants Museum to learn about the realities of war. 

Attend the midday service at the unique Cao Dai Temple in Tay Ninh. En route, scramble through the tunnels at Cu Chi, from where the Viet Cong successfully launched attacks against US forces.
