Highlights

 

Travel to Vietnam for an experience that includes seeing world-acclaimed landmarks, vibrant local culture and remarkable natural beauty on a 15 Best of Vietnam with Nha Trang beach break tour.

The trip begins with what will surely be a highlight of your time in Vietnam: an overnight cruise of Halong Bay aboard a traditional Vietnamese junk boat. Sail around the bay as you admire and capture the magnificence of the landscape. Step foot back onto dry land with a city tour in Hanoi and wander the old-world streets of picturesque Hoi An.

Continue south to Ho Chi Minh City and get to know this frenetic metropolis on a guided tour that sees you visit a famous local market and some of the city’s most prolific landmarks and monuments. Venture out of the city for a day excursion to the Cu Chi Tunnels, and then swap the skyscrapers and urban sprawl of Vietnam’s big cities for its white-sand beaches and laidback atmosphere of Nha Trang. Indulge with 4 nights in Nha Trang for a relaxing end-of-tour beach break. Use your time in this dazzling destination to soak up Vitamin D, explore on snorkelling or island-hopping tours, or simply unwind at the hotel.
