Vietnam Tours and Tour Holidays

From the mighty Mekong Delta in the south to spectacular Halong Bay in the north, Vietnam tour holidays serve up a land of mesmerising natural beauty. Halong Bay – formerly known as Saigon – offers a vivid introduction to the country’s fascinating and turbulent history, with its ornate temples and pagodas, elegant French colonial architecture and museums and memorials to the Vietnam War.

The historic coastal city of Hoi An, invites visitors to step back in time and wander around its characterful old town, which has remained largely untouched since the late 19th century. On the banks of the Perfume River, the imperial palace complex, royal mausolea and temples of Hue are among Vietnam’s most prized historic treasures. Then there’s Hanoi, the nation’s capital, a thriving cultural centre of tree-lined boulevards, colonial buildings and modern skyscrapers, and the gateway to the Gulf of Tonkin, home to the more than 2000 karst islands of Halong Bay. Whether you’re exploring Vietnam’s bustling cities or rural areas bordering Cambodia, a trip here is a sure-fire way to experience the best of the East.
