Mesmerising Vietnam Getaway to Five Incredible Destinations
A fascinating journey around Vietnam, taking in captivating Hanoi, scenic Ninh Binh, imperial Hue, charming Hoi An and lively Ho Chi Minh City, as well as the golden coast
Embark on an unforgettable journey through Vietnam - one of Southeast Asia’s most diverse destinations. First, immerse yourself in the charismatic capital of Hanoi, a city of tree-lined boulevards and whizzing scooters. Marvel at the grandeur of Hanoi's monumental Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum, pausing for banh mi and rich local coffee, and enjoy the five-star comforts of the Pullman Hanoi Hotel, with its top wellness facilities and luxurious rooms.
Next, head out of the city for three nights of fresh greenery at Emeralda Resort Ninh Binh beside the Van Long Nature Reserve - a primeval tropical forest. Whilst here, take the opportunity to uncover the region’s phenomenal landscapes, perhaps on a cycling tour, or visit Cuc Phuong National Park to spot the resident pangolins.
Moving on to the temperate central coast, you’ll be within easy reach of the temples and tombs, pagodas and palaces of historic Hue, although in an altogether more serene location on golden Thuan An beach. Hue’s original luxury resort, Ana Mandara Hue Resort thus has the best spot on the shorefront, plus a noteworthy spa to boot.
For your fourth stop, you’ll travel to must-visit Hoi An, a former bustling port famed for its UNESCO-listed Ancient Town. Go back in time on the lantern-lit waterfront and relax at the elegant KOI Resort & Spa, which is just as well placed for getting your toes back in the sand at nearby Cua Dai beach.
No trip to Vietnam would be complete without a visit to energetic Ho Chi Minh City. From your modern condo-style base, discover colonial landmarks like the 19th-century Central Post Office and the awe-inspiring Notre-Dame Cathedral, made entirely of materials imported from France. Delve into the country’s fascinating history, and compare the city’s distinctive cuisine with that of your first destination - the jury's out on which is better.
