Cities & Places in Vietnam
Venture to the Demilitarised Zone or climb down into the Viet Cong’s Cu Chi tunnels to get an insight into the bloody battles of wartime Vietnam. If you're into food, Vietnamese cuisine is some of the world’s tastiest. Get stuck into sweet sticky rice, chow down on crusty banh mi or make a mess of your shirt front slurping down street-stall noodles. Every landscape, every town, every street corner has something to offer.
- Step back in time in Hanoi’s Old Quarter
- Watch local riverside life on the Mekong Delta
- Kayak the hidden caves and coves of Halong Bay
- Get historic in the Forbidden Purple City of Hue
- Pull up a stool at a street stall and feast on pho
Experiences in Vietnam
Culture and history or outdoors and active? There are plenty of ways to explore Vietnam. Jump on a bike and cycle the length of the country or pick up a pot and learn your way around the herbs and flavours of the local cuisine.
If you’re keen to get active, Vietnam is a great place to hike, cycle or kayak. Set sail on a circular basket boat or make like a local and hop on a motorbike to zoom the back roads of the southern highlands. Take the kids exploring in the mountains of Sapa or travel the whole country, riding the rails on the Reunification Express from one tip of Vietnam to the other.
Super friendly locals, fantastic food and so many cultural highlights your family will want to stay for a month.
Take an overnight cruise on Halong Bay or take in the sights and sounds of the Mekong Delta's Cai Rang floating market.
Shop the local markets, taste the street food, prepare a traditional meal with a local family or take Vietnamese cooking classes. Yum.
Pedalling a bicycle along the back roads is the best way to experience the charm of Vietnam up close, local style.
Hanoi's Old Quarter, the Cu Chi Tunnels, the Mekong Delta – day tours are a great way to cram more experiences into your trip.
Paddle your way around Halong Bay’s limestone karsts and secret bays and find serenity in this magical place.
Crawl through the Cu Chi Tunnels – a remarkable legacy of local ingenuity and determination during the Vietnam War.
Hit the road on a bicycle or motorbike and make your way through some of Vietnam’s most spectacular countryside.
