  • Explore the diverse cultural and architectural heritage of Ho Chi Minh City
  • Squeeze into the Cu Chi Tunnels, former subterranean base of the Viet Cong
  • Slow the pace at the beautiful, mountain-backed beach of Lang Co
  • Discover the imperial tombs and fortified citadel of the old capital, Hue
  • Wander the charming streets of Hoi An, lined with historic merchants' houses

Day 1 London/Ho Chi Minh City
Pack more in to your time in Vietnam by boarding an overnight flight from the UK to Ho Chi Minh City.

Day 2 Ho Chi Minh City
Enjoy a quick private transfer to your hotel and relax in the heart of the vibrant city formerly known as Saigon. Discover its intriguing blend of French colonial buildings, venerable pagodas and modern constructions with a tour of the architectural highlights – the rambling and largely empty 1960s Reunification Palace, Notre Dame Cathedral and curiously, the central post office – a grand, almost baroque monument. For a real sense of city life, stroll along Dong Khoi street – the bustling artery of central Saigon –from the cathedral towards the Saigon River, peering right at the gingerbread-house Hotel de Ville en route.
Pullman Saigon | Meals: Breakfast

Day 3 Ho Chi Minh City
Delve beneath the surface of Vietnam's history – both literally and figuratively – with a visit to the Cu Chi Tunnels, a huge subterranean network that stretched almost to the Cambodian border, occupied by thousands of local people (many Viet Cong) during the war. Squeeze into the tunnels for truly unique – and claustrophobic – insights and chat with 'Uncle Nam', a local guide and war veteran who lived in the tunnels for 12 years during the 'American War'. Back in Ho Chi Minh City, stroll through Chinatown in the Cholon district to admire the vivid ceramic friezes at the Thien Hau Pagoda, and browse the stalls at lively Bin Tay Market.
Pullman Saigon | Meals: Breakfast

Day 4 Ho Chi Minh City/Nha Trang
Head north with a flight to Nha Trang before the drive and boat ride to Ninh Van Bay. Your base for the next few nights is the luxurious Six Senses resort, offering beachfront and over water villas, as well as villas nestled into the island’s rock formations
Six Senses Ninh Van Bay | Meals: Breakfast

Days 5 to 9 Ninh Van Bay
Tempting though it is to simply soak up the beautiful surroundings and relax at the resort, there are ample delights to explore nearby. Venture out with the local fishermen to learn their traditional fishing methods; take a romantic cruise on a traditional boat with drinks and canapes or enjoy a Vietnamese wellbeing journey at the award winning Six Senses spa. 
Six Senses Ninh Van Bay | Meals: Breakfast

Day 10 Ninh Van Bay/Ho Chi Minh City/London
Tear yourself away from the beautiful views for the transfer to Nha Trang airport and on to Ho Chi Minh City for your International flight back to the UK.
