Day 2 : Ho Chi Minh City Tour
Your tour begins at the General Post Office and from there to Notre Dame Cathedral, both fine examples of French colonial architecture. Continue towards the Reunification Palace, previously known as the Presidential Palace, the site of the official South Vietnamese surrender on April 30th, 1975. Entry is not included but you will have the opportunity to take photographs. From there head over to the War Remnants museum. Originally opened in September 1975, the museum displays old military equipment and other related items from the Vietnam War including some larger exhibits including an F5A fighter and a UH1-Huey helicopter.
Hop into a traditional cyclo, a three-wheeled bicycle with a carriage at the front for you to sit in, while the driver pedals you through Ho Chi Minh City. Take in the sights, sounds and smells of Ho Chi Minh City without the barrier of a car window or the sound of an engine. Travel through Tao Dan Park to the Tan Dinh wet market. Tanh Dinh serves as both produce market and community center as you will see the locals spend just about as much time with daily gossip as they do with the daily shopping. The last stop on the tour is the famous Ben Thanh market where you can practice your language skills bargaining for souvenirs, clothing and knick knacks. The market itself has an interesting history. Its original location was close to the Ben Nghe River and the old fort of Gia Dinh before it was destroyed in 1859 during the French invasion of Saigon. It was rebuilt and later moved to its present location in 1899.
At the end of your tour, you are free to continue exploring the area or your guide will assist you in getting our van back to your hotel.
Day 3: Ho Chi Minh City - Mekong Delta
The next two days of your suggested Vietnam itinerary are dedicated to the Mekong River, with its vast fertile delta. At around 7:30am, the minibus will take you in the direction of Cai Be. From here, you'll hop onto a boat and sail in a small group through the Mekong Delta. In Cai Be you'll sail past colourful, floating markets, where vendors will offer their wares from their boats jammed with produce, dangling their goods in the air from a long pole.
Daily life will pass you by as you sail through the intricate waterways meeting small villages, rice paddies and local businesses. While sailing through the maze of canals, you'll visit one of the many islands on the Mekong; Vinh Long Island. During the afternoon you'll sail for approximately 3 hours until you reach Can Tho, where you'll arrive on time for sunset. The boat will then take you to a simple but charming hotel for the night. During the dry season, this portion of the trip will be conducted by mini bus due to low water levels.
Day 4: Mekong Delta - Ho Chi Minh City
On the fourth day of your Vietnam holiday package you'll leave your hotel at 7.30am. The local boat will take you to the floating market of Cai Rang, which is the largest, most important, and probably the noisiest floating market in the Mekong Delta. In order to get close to all of the excitement of the floating market, you'll transfer over to a bamboo rowboat. You'll sail amidst all of the boats peddling their wares. Naturally you yourself won't have to row during this journey and therefore you'll have plenty of time to negotiate and purchase goods. At the end of this Mekong Delta tour you'll have a pretty good impression of life on this important river. Eventually you'll take the comfortable air-conditioned coach back to Ho Chi Minh where you'll arrive at around 3-4pm.
Tonight is your last night in Ho Chi Minh City before your Vietnam holiday package going to the Beaches & Island.
Day 5 Ho Chi Minh - Nha Trang Beach
There's nothing on the agenda for your Vietnam holiday today, leaving you to explore Ho Chi Minh City or simply chill out. If you're feeling energetic, you could visit some of the city’s highlights.
At 11:00 Am, you'll leave Ho Chi Minh City and We take a flight to Nha Trang today
Upon arrival in Nha Trang, you'll be collected by minibus and taken to the jetty. From here, the speedboat will take you to Palm Island, the next stop on your Vietnam holiday package.
WHALE ISLAND RESORT - ILE DE BALEINE VIENTAM
When you arrive, a meal will be served and you can follow this with a drink in the tropical bar, the gentle sound of lapping waves in the background. Bliss.
There are only 30 bungalows on the island, all hidden amongst swaying palm trees. These bungalows are comfortable and secluded, letting you relax completely while you listen to the nearby waves. The bungalow walls are made of bamboo, brick and palm wood, and their roofs are thatched with local palm leaves. The water's edge is only a few short steps from your veranda. The bungalows are tastefully furnished by the French management with a double bed (or two singles) and a mosquito net. All of the bungalows have their own private bathroom and a fan to keep you cool.
You can rent good snorkels for less than £2 per day. WHALE ISLAND RESORT - ILE DE BALEINE VIENTAM

Today, you'll head to the airport and take a quick domestic flight from Nha Trang to Danang, the nearest airport to Hoi An. On arrival, we'll organise your transfer to Hoi An.
Stroll past the many Chinese assembly halls, admiring the impressive main altar of the Cantonese Chinese Congregation and the memorial of the Hainan Chinese Congregation – in remembrance of 107 merchants from Hainan Island who were killed during the reign of Emperor Tu Duc when mistaken for pirates. Stop by the Japanese Covered Bridge, constructed in the 1590s by the town’s Japanese community to link them with the Chinese quarters across the stream.
After your walking tour is complete, your guide will accompany you to a family-run restaurant for a small-group cooking class. Uncover the culinary secrets of Vietnamese cooking as a professional chef discusses the delicious dishes you will create.

Day 9 Hoi An Countryside Bike Tour Including Thu Bon River Cruise
Next, follow your guide to the banks of the Thu Bon River for a boat cruise along the waterway. Admire picturesque views of the area as your small group rides toward one of the river’s small islands. After you disembark, enjoy a scrumptious barbecue feast that awaits you! While getting your fill of the local specialties, enjoy a gorgeous sunset over the river with bobbing fishing boats in the foreground.
Afterward, hop back in the boat and cruise along the river as you watch the last of the sun’s rays disappear behind the rice paddies. See the twinkling lights of Hoi An appear as you approach the dock, and then hop back onto your bike to make your way through the crowds at the bustling waterfront to head back to the heart of town.
Day 10 Hoi An - Hue
Traveling by minibus after breakfast, head south on a four-hour drive to Hue. Pass coastal rice paddies before crossing the scenic and mountainous Hai Van Pass, a 14-mile (21-km) stretch of road that winds through spectacular mountains and borders the sparkling South China Sea.
After checking in to your hotel overlooking the Perfume River the remainder of the day is at leisure to explore
Begin your private tour of Hue with pickup from your hotel by private vehicle, and head out for a full day of sightseeing in Vietnam’s former capital. First, your private guide will take you on a 1to1.5-hour tour of Hue Citadel, a UNESCO World Heritage Site containing the former Imperial Palace. Modeled on the Forbidden City in Beijing, Hue Citadel consists of a royal palace, tombs, hallways and ornate temples that showcase the former capital city’s regal past.
Walk around the complex, located inside high stone walls, with your guide and learn about Hue’s Nguyen Emperors who ruled the former capital of Vietnam until the early 20th century. Bombed by both French and American forces, and heavily damaged during the 1968 Tet Offensive, much of the Imperial City lies in ruins and is slowly being restored to its former glory.
Once you’ve explored the grounds and discovered Hue’s royal treasures, enjoy a relaxing 45-minute cruise on the enchanting Perfume River. Disembark for a brief visit to the seven-story Thien Mu Pagoda, the tallest pagoda in Vietnam, which stands on the northern bank of the meandering river.
Day 12 Ha Noi
This morning we continue our journey north with a flight to Hanoi City, Vietnam's most energetic and electric city. After check-in hotel, starting in the morning with a visit the Temple of Literature, originally built as a temple to Confucius, this is the site of Vietnam's first university dating back to 1070. Inside are the stone steles mounted on the backs of turtles, inscribed with the names of the university's graduates. The complex is divided into five courtyards with different paths that would originally have been reserved for the Emperor and his mandarins. One of the courtyards contains the statue of Confucius guarded by two beautiful bronze storks standing on turtles.
After a sumptuous Vietnamese lunch, tour the Museum of Ethnology, widely acknowledged as the best in the Vietnam which houses a display dedicated to Vietnam's 54 ethnic minority peoples. Afterward, head to Ngoc Son Temple set on a tiny island in the middle of Hoan Kiem Lake. The Ngoc Son temple dates back to the 13th century, and the lake itself is a picturesque focal point of Hanoi, frequented by tourists and locals alike.
End the day with a one-hour cyclo ride through the Old Quarter. Also known as the 36 streets, this bustling area of narrow streets is home to literally thousands of small businesses and shopkeepers. It's a great place to explore with plenty of photo opportunities. At approximately 6:00pm, you will return you to your hotel
Day 13: Hanoi – Halong Bay
After early morning pickup from your hotel, depart from the capital for Halong Bay – an approximate four-hour drive by comfortable air-conditioned vehicle. Upon arrival at Halong Bay around midday, you’ll be greeted by a tour representative and transferred to the traditional junk boat.
Settle in with a complimentary welcome drink as you begin your cruise around majestic Halong Bay. Meet the expert crew and get acquainted with your small group while you dine on a delicious seafood lunch, including tea and coffee. After lunch, unwind and soak up the sun on the top deck – a great spot for photographing the natural wonders of the bay – as your captain finds a secluded area, perfect for swimming in the clear waters.
You’ll have the chance to try your hand at kayaking and explore some of the ancient limestone caves dotting the bay. As you glide along the most secluded lagoons, admire the surrounding limestone karsts amid unforgettable scenery only accessible by kayak! The modern kayaks are lightweight and easy to maneuver, and all participants will be issued water buoyancy vests. The junk boat will be nearby at all times, serving as a back-up vessel for those who need it.
