VIETNAM ODYSSEY

From the Mekong Delta in the south to the Sapa highlands of the north, you can’t dream up a more complete and captivating Vietnam tour.

20 Days, 19 Nights     FROM US$ 2,666 PER PERSON

On this epic 20-day journey through one of Southeast Asia’s most vibrant countries, you’ll explore Vietnam’s culture, cuisine, history and customs, from the urban buzz of Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City) in the south to the rural hill tribe communities of rugged Sapa in the north. On a whirlwind tour that reveals all the nuance and color of Vietnam, you’ll discover more than just the delicious scent of pho and the color of the water in Halong Bay—you’ll be immersed in Vietnamese culture.

This complete Vietnam tour starts in Ho Chi Minh City, the gem of Vietnam’s sultry south. From here, you’ll explore the Cu Chi Tunnels of the Viet Cong and journey to the floating markets of Cai Be in the Mekong Delta. But don’t close your eyes, because up next is the colonial charms of Dalat and a mini beach vacation on the golden coast of Nha Trang!

Explore the historical city of Hoi An and drink in the charms of Hue before heading to Hanoi, the capital of Vietnam. You’ll roam through the Old Quarters and enjoy Vietnamese coffee while rubbing shoulders with locals. A daytrip to the ancient village of Duong Lam will reveal Vietnam’s millennia-old history. A trekking adventure through Sapa will bring you face to face with the hill tribes who inhabit Vietnam’s highlands.

But that’s not all—along the way you’ll discover fascinating sites and revel in unforgettable, immersive moments. Then, cap off your epic holiday in Vietnam with an overnight cruise in stunning Halong Bay. We’ll make sure you get to the airport in Hanoi on time to catch your return flight.

  • Day 2: Ho Chi Minh City

    Today, your complete Vietnam tour takes you on a full-day tour of Ho Chi Minh City. With your private guide leading the way, you’ll visit Cholon, the city’s bustling Chinatown district, and explore the area’s many shops and markets, as well as the Cantonese pagoda of Thien Hau, which is dedicated to the Goddess of the Sea. Head next to the FITO Museum, which houses a remarkable collection of 3,000 herbs, artifacts, ancient books and implements used in traditional Vietnamese medicine.

    Back in the city center you’ll take an eye-opening stroll through Ben Thanh Market, which offers an incredible array of fresh, regional produce.

    In the afternoon, you can opt to visit the War Remnants Museum or the Museum of Vietnamese History. (Please note: The history museum is closed on Monday.) Afterwards, we’ll visit the former Presidential Palace, and we can drive or walk to all the major sights of colonial Ho Chi Minh City (your private car will be with you at all times).

  • Day 3: Ho Chi Minh City-Tay Ninh-Cu Chi Tunnels-Ho Chi Minh City

    No comprehensive tour of Vietnam would be complete without a visit to the famed Cu Chi Tunnels. Rise early this morning and depart Ho Chi Minh City at 08:00. You’ll be driven to the tunnels by way of Tay Ninh (approximately a 2-hour drive). As you leave the city behind, the scenery will change to rural landscapes of rice paddies, noodles drying by the side of the road, and other scenes of daily life in the countryside. At Tay Ninh you’ll visit the great temple of Cao Dai, a structure of exuberant architecture. In Cao Dai, all the major faiths of the world combine to form a unique religion.

    We’ll refuel with lunch at a local restaurant before our visit to the Cu Chi Tunnels. This incredible network of underground pathways was built by Vietnamese resistance fighters (Viet Cong) during the French and American wars. Begin your visit at the Ben Dinh or Ben Duoc sections of the network. With Russian Carbine rifles and AK 47’s on display, it’s easy to imagine what it was like to be a guerrilla here. Return to Ho Chi Minh City in the late afternoon.

  • Day 4: Mekong Delta

    Today, journey to the traditional wooden boats, emerald rice fields and lush waterways of Cai Be. After enjoying breakfast at your hotel, you’ll make the 2-hour drive into the delta.

    Upon arrival, embark on a boat cruise of the Cai Be Floating Market. Some of the traders and vendors have been living here for generations. Here, traders use a unique sales pitch: they hang their produce on a pole on the front of their boats to attract customers.

    Next, continue to a small, local factory where snacks of “pop rice,” coconut candies and rice paper are made. You’ll then cruise to Dong Hoa Hiep Island, admiring the scenery and observing the daily local life along the way. For lunch, you’ll be served Mekong-style regional specialties. After your cruise, drive back to Ho Chi Minh City where you can enjoy the evening at your leisure.

  • Day 5: Ho Chi Minh City-Dalat

    Say goodbye to Ho Chi Minh City today as you board your domestic 40-minute flight to Dalat. Located 300 kilometers north of Ho Chi Minh City and established as a hill station during colonial times, Dalat is home to French chalets and pine forests. You’ll feel like you’re in an alpine town.

    Upon arrival, get settled in your hotel, then join us for an afternoon of sightseeing. We’ll visit the summer palace of Bao Dai, the last emperor of Vietnam. The palace has been preserved exactly as Bao Dai left it in 1954, a remarkable example of art deco architecture located on a hill.

    Continue next to the former railway station, which retains its charming old-world architecture and houses a still-running steam locomotive! We’ll also visit Xuan Huong Lake and Lam Ty Ni Pagoda, where the legendary Buddhist monk, Vien Thuc, writes poetry and creates his abstract paintings. Wrap up today’s tour at the lively central market, which is renowned for its unique fresh fruit and vegetables.

    Meals included: Breakfast

  • Day 6: Dalat – Nha Trang

    You’ll continue your complete Vietnam tour at the coastal city of Nha Trang. Drive 2.5 hours on a scenic route through a lush mountain pass to the coastal plains of Central Vietnam. The highland crops of tea and coffee will be replaced with tobacco, rice and grapes as the road descends into the dry, coastal climate. You’ll pass salt ponds and green rice fields as you near Nha Trang.

    Sun worshippers will have their every wish fulfilled on the golden beaches of Nha Trang. Many islands dot the horizon off its sandy coasts, and the turquoise waters teem with marine life, making for some great snorkeling and scuba diving. When you arrive in Nha Trang, you’ll have the chance to get oriented in Central Coast culture on an introductory tour of the city, with visits to Po Nagar Cham Towers, the Alexander Yersin Museum and the “XQ” workshop, which displays exquisite handmade embroideries. You’ll also visit the enormous, white Buddha statue at Long Son Pagoda, and to cap off the tour, you’ll take a stroll through lively Dam Market.

    Meals included: Breakfast

  • Day 7: Nha Trang

    This morning is devoted to snorkeling, swimming and soaking in the sun. Take a boat trip after breakfast to some of the islands in Nha Trang Bay where you can enjoy the warm, clear waters. En route, you can visit local villages or just relax on the sundeck and do some people-watching. Here, you’ll see Vietnamese villagers whose ancestors have lived on these islands for generations go about their daily lives. After enjoying a fresh seafood lunch on Bamboo Island, hop back on your boat and return to Nha Trang City.

    You’re free to spend the afternoon at your leisure.

  • Day 8: Nha Trang-Hoi An

    Today you’ll take a 50-minute domestic flight from Nha Trang Airport to Danang, then drive a further 40 minutes to the historical port city of Hoi An. Although Hoi An saw its heyday as a center of trade in the 17th and 18th centuries, today it continues to boast many attractions. In addition to the charming, old-world neighborhoods of narrow streets and traditional houses, it also has a lovely, long beach with stylish, new resorts. The town’s little shophouses now host craft shops and artisan studios, including some of Asia’s best tailors.

    Enjoy a leisurely walking tour of the historical town center. You’ll visit former merchants’ homes, the Japanese Covered Bridge that dates back 400 years, the Chinese community hall and the colorful Hoi An Market. (Please note: Our route can be changed according to your interests.)

  • Day 9: Hoi An-My Son-Tra Kieu-Hoi An

    Today you’ll take a half-day trip to My Son, the capital and religious center of the former Champa Kingdom (roughly a 1.5-hour drive). Located 40 kilometers southwest of Hoi An in a lush green valley, the former kingdom’s red brick towers and sanctuaries built from the 7th to 13th centuries still stand sentry. Take your time to explore these ancient, awe-inspiring ruins.

    On your return route to Hoi An, you’ll have ample time to stop and explore Tra Kieu, formerly known as Simhapura, or “the Lion Citadel.” This was the site of Champa’s capital from the 4th to 8th centuries. Some of the finest sculptures housed in Danang’s Cham Museum today originated from Tra Kieu.

    The afternoon will be free to spend at your leisure.

  • Day 10: Hoi An - Danang - Hue

    Enjoy a leisurely breakfast this morning before you bid Hoi An goodbye and head to Hue, the former imperial capital of Vietnam, on a 3-hour scenic drive. The tombs and mausoleums of Vietnam’s last emperors that you’ll find here reveal intriguing insights into the lives of the royal court.

    After breakfast, you’ll drive north past Danang to the Cham Museum, which houses a collection of the finest Cham sculptures in the world. Then, a wonderfully scenic drive over the poetically named “Pass of Ocean Clouds” will bring you down into the fishing village of Lang Co. The evening is free to explore Hue at your leisure.

  • Day 11: Hue

    Grab a quick breakfast at your hotel today and head out at 08:30 for a privately guided tour of Hue’s best sights. We’ll start at the Imperial Citadel where the Nguyen Dynasty ruled from 1802 to 1945. After exploring these monumental ruins, hop on a cyclo (a three-wheeled bicycle taxi) for a ride through the Old City to Tinh Tam Lake—a peaceful getaway where the Nguyen emperors used to relax. In the summer the lake is full of lotus flowers, and the many local coffee shops along the lakeshore are popular study spots for university students.

    Next we head to Thien Mu (Celestial Lady) Pagoda, which overlooks Perfume River. A 21-meter-tall tower constructed in 1601 is the centerpiece of the pagoda and symbolizes the seven incarnations of Buddha. On the pagoda grounds, you’ll also see the storied Austin car that a monk drove to Saigon in 1963 in protest against the South Vietnamese government. The photo of his self-immolation is one of the most famous images from the Vietnam War.

    Continue to the tomb of former emperor Minh Mang, located in a beautiful garden dotted with ponds. Next up is Khai Dinh’s Tomb. The Vietnamese design with a touch of European influence makes this one of Hue’s most distinct tombs.

    Before returning to your hotel, take a stroll through the colorful stalls of Dong Ba Market. Your guide will be on hand to explain the unique goods sold here. Teeming with life and fascinating glimpses of daily life, this market is a must-see site in Hue.

  • Day 12: Hue-Hanoi

    Today, your complete Vietnam tour whisks you to the nation’s capital, Hanoi. After breakfast you’ll catch a short flight from Hue Airport. On arrival in Hanoi, your private guide will take you on a half-day exploration of the city.

    First, we’ll visit the Temple of Literature, Vietnam’s first university, founded in 1076. Known locally as Quoc Tu Giam, this place of learning was established inside a temple to educate Vietnam’s nobles, scholars and elites. The university was in operation for 700 years. Its well-preserved architecture and tranquil gardens offer intriguing glimpses into Vietnam’s past.

    Next, continue to the One Pillar Pagoda, founded in 1049 by King Ly Thai To. Today this pagoda is widely recognized as one of Vietnam’s most iconic temples. Head to the nearby mausoleum of Ho Chi Minh, then to the former president’s house where Ho Chi Minh lived from 1958 to 1969. His former home reveals the humble lifestyle of the Vietnamese revolutionary leader. (Please note: The house can only be viewed from outside; closed Monday and Friday and from October to November.)

    In the afternoon, we’ll visit Hanoi’s Ethnology Museum (closed Mondays), which is both a research center and a museum focusing on the customs and culture of the ethnic groups of Vietnam. Or, if you prefer, you can visit the Vietnam Women’s Museum (also closed on Mondays). Located near Hoan Kiem Lake, this highly acclaimed museum offers wonderful insights into the lives of Vietnamese women as well as an education on traditional and modern-day customs around birth, motherhood, weddings, spirituality and more.

    At the end of the afternoon, take the opportunity to visit Hanoi’s Old Quarter, commonly called the “36 Streets.” Enjoy a guided walking tour through lively Hang Be Market and around the shores of Hoan Kiem Lake. The narrow streets and alleys here are home to thousands of small businesses and shop houses. It’s a labyrinth of culture with ample subjects for interesting photos.

  • Day 13: Hanoi-Duong Lam

    Today, you’ll get the unique opportunity to immerse yourself in ancient Vietnamese culture. We’ll make an excursion to Duong Lam, one of Vietnam’s few remaining ancient villages. Located on the Red River Delta, Duong Lam is an agricultural village with well-preserved houses that are centuries old. Walking through Duong Lam’s narrow alleyways, exploring its 400-year-old houses, visiting the local temples and chatting with the locals is perhaps the best way to get a sense of this area’s fascinating 1,200-year history.

    We’ll also visit Mong Phu Temple in Mong Phu Commune, a hamlet of Duong Lam. This hamlet’s claim to fame is that its original entrance—which dates back centuries—remains intact today. Stroll through the narrow lanes lined with traditional clay houses and enjoy a local lunch in a house that is more than 100 years old.

    After lunch, we’ll continue driving to Mia Pagoda (another hamlet of Duong Lam). This 15th-century pagoda houses 287 religious statues of all sizes, including a famous statue of the Buddha as well as the “Eight Vajra Deities.” Finally, we’ll visit imposing temples dedicated to two national heroes, Ngo Quyen and Phung Hung.

    Return to Hanoi in the afternoon.

  • Day 14: Hanoi-Lao Cai

    Leave the hotel in Hanoi at 10:00AM and head to one of the city’s best pho restaurants for a hearty breakfast. Pho, a steaming hot noodle soup, is Vietnam’s national dish. You get to choose whether to have pho bo (beef noodle soup) or pho ga (chicken noodle soup).

    Continue to one of Hanoi’s last remaining “wet markets.” During the morning hours, it’s abuzz with locals shopping for the day’s meals. You’ll find everything here from fresh tropical fruits and herbs to butchers, fresh-cut flowers, and even live frogs and fish. Then, take a walk through the backstreets where vendors set up their stalls along the road. You’ll get to sample some regional dishes at these excellent street stalls for a snack or second breakfast today! We recommend the bun cha (rice noodles with herbs and grilled pork) and hoa qua dam (fresh fruits). Finally, walk to a corner cafe in the Old Quarter and enjoy a cup of Vietnamese tea or coffee before returning to your hotel.

    The rest of the afternoon is free to spend at your leisure.

    In the evening, we’ll transfer to Hanoi train station and board an overnight train to Lao Cai, the gateway to the famed highlands and rice terraces of North Vietnam. Before boarding the train, we’ll treat you to a Vietnamese dinner at a local restaurant near the station.

  • Day 15: Sapa

    Arrive at Lao Cai Station this morning. Your local guide and driver will meet you here and take you to breakfast. Then, drive to a local market where hill tribe groups gather. (Note: The market you visit will depend on your day of arrival. You’ll visit Ban Cam on Tuesday, Cao Son on Wednesday, Lung Khau Nhin on Thursday, Can Cau on Saturday, or Bac Ha on Sunday.) Here you’ll get to rub shoulders with the Flower Hmong, or perhaps the Phu La, Black Dao, Tay, and Nung hill tribe groups. The market trades and sells unique local products, such as pot-bellied buffalos, pigs and cows.
    From here, we’ll embark on a walking tour of Sapa and visit the busy market where the Red Dao, Black H’Mong, Tay and other ethnic minority groups gather to sell their handicrafts and silverware. Then we’ll take a gentle hike into the hills to view the hill tribe villages of Sapa set against a backdrop of the Hoang Lien Son Mountain Range. Here, you’ll also see Vietnam’s highest peak, Mt. Fansipan. Along the way, we’ll stop at a scenic spot for a picnic lunch. (Please note: It’s important to wear good walking or trekking shoes on Sapa treks. If conditions are wet, treks may be postponed or cancelled.)

    The rest of the afternoon is free to spend at your leisure.

    Today after breakfast, your complete Vietnam tour will take you into the heart of Ban Khoang Valley. You’ll be driven 30 minutes into the valley, enjoying spectacular views of the Hoag Lien Mountain Range (also known as the Tonkinese Alps) along the way.

    Your first stop in Ban Khoang Valley is Lu Khau Village, home of the Blue Hmong and Red Zao minorities. You’ll have the opportunity to walk through the village, meet the local people and learn about their lifestyles and culture. Next, we’ll drive a further 8 kilometers and have a lovely local lunch in Ta Giang Phinh Valley, home to the Blue Hmong people.

    After lunch, take a walk through the valley on a scenic village path. Feel free to visit a few local houses and see artisans at work on handicrafts. You’re also sure to see villagers working their fields with buffalos.

    Later in the afternoon, head back to Sapa Town. Spend the rest of the day at your leisure.

    When you’re hungry, tuck into a simple but delicious lunch at a local house. After you’re sated, we’ll drive back to Sapa Town and catch a bus back to Hanoi in the afternoon.

    You’ll arrive in Hanoi in the evening.
