Introduction: This amazing trip will take you on an unforgettable journey through a country that's as distinct and enchanting as the people who inhabit it. Our adventure begins in the steamy southern city of Saigon. From here we'll explore the agriculturally rich Mekong Delta and the one-time guerrilla stronghold of Cu Chi tunnels before spending a couple of days cooling off in the attractive Central Highlands town of Dalat. Back on the coast, we'll cruise the offshore islands of Nha Trang then catch the day train to the ancient port town of Hoi An in Central Vietnam. A short drive north, over spectacular Hai Van Pass, brings us to a city that's steeped in history and culture, the former Imperial capital, Hue. Another overnight train journey delivers us to the charming present-day capital of Hanoi in North Vietnam. Discover this graceful old city on foot before setting out to Mai Chau, the heart of a beautiful valley that is a world away from the hustle of Hanoi, where inhabit the Ethnic White Thai. We enjoy romantic cruise amongst the towering limestone karsts of awe-inspiring Halong Bay, the World Natural Heritage Site, before taking departure flight to next destination.
