Harmony of the Elements
Today has finally arrived. You’ll be running around, throwing those last-minute things into your case before heading to the airport to fly to Hanoi. Settle into your hotel then have a wander around the city. Get up early for a walking tour of the sights, with that all-important caffeine fix, before exploring on your own. Take an evening Vespa tour to see the city by night, and finish off with a nightcap at a lively bar before sinking into the bed.
Say goodbye to the city and hello to Halong Bay. Staying onboard a traditional junk boat, you’ll cruise past dramatic limestone cliffs and incredible scenery. Depending on your ship’s schedule, you’ll have the chance to try squid fishing or a cookery class. As the ship drops anchor in a quiet bay for the night, enjoy the sunset from the deck, cocktail in hand. Dreamy…
After an early morning Tai Chi session on board, you’ll sail back to port and transfer to the airport for your flight to Danang. You’ll then transfer to Hoi An where the evening is yours to enjoy as you please. Get up early and explore the city as it wakes up, taking a trip through the nearby countryside. Then perhaps cycle to the beach, or just relax by the pool.
Enjoy a leisurely morning, then drive to Hue via the spectacular Hai Van Pass. In the evening, you’ll tour Hue’s bars and street food stalls, then it’s back to the Imperial Citadel ruins in the morning for a good nosy before hopping into a cyclo, the ubiquitous three-wheel bicycle taxi, through the Old City.
Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City)
Flying in from Hue, throw yourself into Saigon's fascinating history, exploring the city and visiting sights like the enlightening War Remnants Museum and the former Presidential Palace. A Saigonese local will escort you to a traditional coffee shop where you’ll learn all about the coffee history of the city, and you'll join in with a group cookery class at ‘Grain’, the renowned cookery school of famous chef Luke Nguyen. Escape the city buzz for the Mekong Delta, visiting local orchards and workshops, and cruising through the narrow canals. In the evening, sit down to a farewell meal at a local restaurant and reminisce about the highlights of your trip. On Day 12 you'll fly back home. You’ll be bursting with stories of your tasty Vietnam trip to share with your friends and family – and inevitably make them jealous.
