Itinerary

This trip takes you to the most classic places that make Vietnam beautiful. For less than 2 weeks, you will travel from the south to the north of Vietnam to see lovely towns, enjoy stunning natural landscapes and experience exquisite local cultures:

  • Ho Chi Minh city – the biggest cultural hub in Vietnam with many interesting war remnants. One of them is Cu Chi tunnel -complicated tunnels that were built manually by Vietnamese soldiers
  • Mekong – a fertile and peaceful river that harbors a unique civilization on water
  • Hoi An – a town reminiscent of a hustling Asian trading port in the past
  • My Son – the World Cultural Heritage that captures the glory of the old Champa empire
  • Hue – the last feudal capital of Vietnam where hundreds of aged-old temples, mausoleums, and palaces remain
  • Hanoi – the millennium capital where street food is amazing
  • Halong Bay – its geology of karst limestone and sea is so stunning, making it one of Seven Nature Wonders.
