Day-to-Day Itinerary : Essential Vietnam - Value

DAY 1 Depart the uk

Fly overnight to Ho Chi Minh City also known as Saigon

DAYS 2, 3 & 4 saigon

Arrive in Saigon and transfer to the Lavender Hotel in the heart of this exciting city. Whilst in Saigon our excellent guide will take you on a tour exploring the city. The next day you'll visit the Mekong Delta including lunch. Our trip takes you away from the main tourist trail and includes a local style lunch.

DAYS 5, 6 & 7 HOi AN

You will transfer to the airport for a short morning flight up to Danang. On arrival your guide and driver will meet you and transfer you to your accommodation at the Ha An or Ancient House. Here you can relax in pleasant surroundings or head into town to see the sights and do some shopping. Hoi An is a great place to explore independently with its pretty lantern lined streets and excellent restaurants. We really recommend catching the colourful morning markets or even taking a cookery course here (ask us for details). Hoi An is famous for its numerous tailors who will copy or design clothes, the prices are fantastic and the range of silks and other materials is endless.

DAYS 8 & 9 Hue

Travel overland to Hue via the Hai Van œCloudy Pass, a spectacular three hour coastal drive with numerous photo opportunities on the way. On arrival you check in at the Orchid Hue. You will have a guided tour in Hue taking you to the historic Imperial City. You can also hire bikes, take a cyclo ride (rickshaw) or enjoy a pleasant boat ride on the serene Perfume River.

DAYS 10, 11, 12 & 13 Hanoi/halong bay

From Hue you fly to Hanoi where you stay in one of the friendly Elegance hotels in the old quarter. The old city and the Hoam Kiem Lake, a beautiful place to watch the sunset are both nearby. There are several museums, shops and excellent eateries along Hanoi's tree lined boulevards and its a great city to spend a few days. Your stay will include a guided half day tour so you can get your bearings in this confusing city. Ask us for restaurant suggestions - the food in Hanoi is wonderful. During your time in Hanoi we include a 2 day, overnight trip to Halong bay where you will cruise the spectacular bay and stay overnight on the Bai Tho traditional junk boat with all meals included.
