Between its mountains, beaches, booming cities and cultural diversity, you’re bound to fi nd something that tempts you in Vietnam. In addition, there’s a wealth of hotels, including large world-class resorts and more individual and affordable boutique options to choose from. As a long thin country, it makes sense to travel north to south or vice versa, topping and tailing your journey with the two contrasting cities of Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh.
Southeast of Hanoi is the remarkable natural wonder of Halong Bay, where the mystical limestone rock formations – which legend tells were formed by a dragon’s breath – form a beautiful backdrop to an overnight cruise on a traditional wooden junk.
Food forms a big part of any holiday to Vietnam, whether you simply enjoy delicious dinners, sample unusual street food, or take full advantage of your visit with a cookery course. Our street food tour of local markets with an American chef will introduce you to the basics of Vietnamese cuisine and just some of the traditional dishes, which of course you can enjoy afterwards.
Honeymoon Highlights of Vietnam
- Dine out at Bobby Chinh’s in Hanoi, famous for its delicious food and the big character of its owner. Or the equally revered Cuc Gach Quan in Ho Chi Minh, which occupies a restored colonial mansion.
- Nha Trang is one of the most beautiful bays in Vietnam. Or try the luxurious Six Senses Con Dao which rests on a white sandy beach surrounded by mountains.
- A sampan cruise along the Mekong, one of the most scenic rivers in Asia, will take you far beyond the tourist veil, past traditional villages, plantations, orchards and catfish farms.
- Ho Chi Minh City radiates energy: myriad restaurants, designer boutiques and a lively nightlife. To really feel like a local, take an evening Vespa tour.
There is no better place in Vietnam to have clothes tailor-made than in Hoi An, a captivating old trading town on the central east coast. Strolling along the wharf and exploring the traditional houses, many of which are now art galleries and workshops, is a pleasant way to while away the day. Bicycles and boats are good for exploring the rural areas and enticing beaches nearby.
Surrounded by jungle-topped mountains and with fabulous views of the shimmering East Sea, the spectacular sandy bays of the central coastline are conducive to beachside relaxation. Whether the stylish Nam Hai on the edge of Hoi An, or somewhere more remote such as Six Senses Ninh Van Bay, we have lots of hotel suggestions up our sleeves.
The southern highlights include the buzzing and cosmopolitan city of Ho Chi Minh. Wide boulevards and French colonial buildings house world famous restaurants, designer boutiques and energetic nightlife. The Cu Chi tunnels further south give an insight into the life of the Viet Cong, and the Mekong Delta is the place for a cruise on a local sampan.
