Price of the trips: Start from $ per person.
Destinations: Hanoi - Hue - Hoi An - Ho Chi Minh City -Da Lat.
Our Asian tours and luxury vacations go deep into Vietnam's culture. This example includes Hanoi, an evening cyclotour round the Old Quarter, colonial hotels, meeting local craftsmen and artists, luxury travel through Hue Imperial City, Hue Royal Tombs and garden houses, Hoi An, Ho Chi Minh City architecture, and Dalat's 'counter-culture'.

Your cultural tourism experience begins with three days in Hanoi

Starting with time to recover, a 'Welcome'' dinner and some light entertainment to introduce you to Vietnamese rural culture.
On the following days, your time will be taken up with the cultural aspects of the city - history, architecture, art, traditions, customs, and so on. If you're keen on museums, there'll be a free morning to visit one or two.
Meals: two breakfasts, two lunches and one dinner

Escort/guide: transfers, first evening, and two days

Two days in Hue

The first Emperor of the Nguyen Dynasty acceded to the throne via the support of the French military forces. Thereafter, the power balance steadily moved towards the French.


Apart from showing you the famous Citadel, Imperial City, and the mausoleums of the Emperors, your guide will explain the interaction between the two authorities and trace the path to the Vietnam War and the present day.
You'll also make contact with the Imperial past when you dine in one of Hue's unusual 'garden houses'.
Meals: two breakfasts, one lunch and one dinner.
Guide: transfers and a day and a half from arrival.

Three days in Ho Chi Minh City

Be prepared for a complete contrast! Instead of Hanoi's elegant boulevards, tree-shaded walks and relatively calm atmosphere, you find Ho Chi Minh City is brash, noisy and frenetic. It's also very exciting! You'll visit the sights, of course - the Jade Emperor Pagoda is a particular favourite for many of our clients - but you'll also have time to wander around Vietnam's best shopping area.
Under the French, and known as Saigon, the city was the capital of French Indochina and became a very chic destination. One of the famous itinerant visitors was a regular in the hotel where you'll be staying - you might like to try our Graham Greene pedestrian tour as it takes you to some excellent examples of colonial architecture. You won't need a guide.
Meals: three breakfasts and three lunches.

Guide: transfers and one day

Three days in Dalat

After a free morning in Ho Chi Minh City, a noon flight whisks you to Vietnam's most misunderstood city. Here, Dalat is described as 'romantic', because thousands of Vietnamese couple go there for their honeymoon. However, the attraction is the cool temperature, not moonlight and roses.
Once a sophisticated mountain resort under the French, it's now Vietnam's capital for kitsch. Nevertheless, there's plenty to see and do, particularly Emperor Bao Dai's Summer Palace - the comparison between the grandeur of the Citadel and what resembles a large suburban house graphically illustrates the collapse of the last member of the Nguyen Dynasty to puppet status. Then it's time to fly back to Ho Chi Minh City.

Meals: three breakfasts, three lunches and one dinner.

Guide: transfers, one full day and two half-days.

Time to leave!

You'll be free until your car arrives to take you to Ho Chi Minh City airport for your transfer or departure flight.

Meals: one breakfast.
