Vietnam vacations

Experience Hanoi and Saigon, walk amid rural scenery, cruise the Mekong and relax at the beach on your tailor-made tour

From colonial Hanoi and the karst scenery of Halong Bay, to the mercantile history of Hoi An, to fast-paced Saigon and the Mekong Delta, our Vietnam specialists use their personal experience of the country to plan your tailor-made tour of Vietnam in detail.

Travel in Vietnam is often based around a journey between Hanoi and Saigon, taking in the highlights of the central region between the two. Our Vietnam specialists can also suggest the country’s often overlooked, lesser-known sights and experiences, such as discovering brightly dressed hill tribe communities in the Tonkinese Alps or the remote markets of Ha Giang – places and people we’ve come to know over 20 years of research and return visits.
