Dinah Jefferies’ Silk Merchant’s Daughter Holiday

In 2015, Dinah Jefferies approached Experience Travel Group to organise her research trip for her next novel.

Experience Travel Tales: Vietnam

As we drove down the landscaped driveway we were filled with excitement about the experience to come. Check in was a stress free task as we were treated to a very refreshing ginger infused ice cold drink in the bar, whilst the paper work was being completed. We met a number of friendly members of staff who gave us an informative introduction to the hotel. We were then taken to our lodgings on a buggy and as we passed through the grounds we noticed the lush and calm surroundings.
