Day 1
Fly overnight from London to Hanoi.
Day 2
Arrive to Hanoi today. You will be met on arrival at the airport by your private driver and guide who will transfer you to your hotel for check in. The rest of the day is at leisure to relax and explore at your own pace.
Day 3
This morning explore the city on a private walking tour with your guide. Visit bustling markets, narrow streets with cosy coffee shops and learn about the local culture. The rest of the day is yours to explore on your own. We recommend visiting the museums and historical sites.
Day 4
Today is yours to explore under your own steam. How about strolling around Hoan Kiem Lake, or exploring the bustle of the Old Quarter or even visiting one of the many wonderful museums in the city.
Day 5
Today depart for your overnight Halong Bay Cruise. You will be transferred to your boat for you to enjoy a cruise around this breath-taking area of Northern Vietnam. Enjoy visits to beaches, caves and even try your hand at squid fishing once the sun has set over the bay.
Day 6
Wake up in the middle of the towering limestone karsts to enjoy a Tai Chi class on the top deck of your boat. A delicious breakfast will follow before you head back to the pier and continue your journey to Hoi An by short flight.
Day 7
Today is yours to enjoy picturesque Hoi An. Additional sightseeing tours and even cooking classes can be added here but you may prefer to spend your day relaxing on the beach.
Day 8
Today is free to explore. If you would like to add additional experiences here then we highly recommend a cycle tour, jeep tour to My Son or a boat tour to the Cham Islands for snorkelling.
Day 9
Another day at leisure - Hoi An has so much to see and do, we have no doubt will enjoy your free time here.
Day 10
After your short flight to Saigon the day is yours to explore the city - we can send you sightseeing suggestions and highly recommend a vespa street food tour this evening.
