Immersive VIETNAM holidays
Vietnam - the very best of Southeast Asia, in one sensational holiday experience: outrageously delicious food, heaven-sent beach life, heaven-scented, sticky, tropical adventure and extraordinary natural beauty. But let’s not rush things here. In fact, let’s not ever rush things. With endless options, you’ve time to take your time.
So how about unwinding on the gorgeous beaches of Hoi An or Nha Trang?
Or taking a moment out in astonishing Halong Bay, or tucked away Ninh Binh?
And why follow in others' footsteps when you can journey away from the crowd - deep into the Mekong Delta or Phong Na-Ke Bang National Park? And of course, there’s always time for a little crazy Vietnam too - city scooters, Bai Hoi Corner and scorpions on a stick. Whatever blend of adventure and downtime works for you, however you define your luxury, we’ll create an experience to match. No rush - just reward.

Edible Vietnam - oh go on then
There is nothing, and we mean nothing, in this whole wide world, more delicious than fresh Vietnamese street food. You already know that. Everyone knows that. But do you know the best street? The best stall? The stallholder’s name? The stall holder’s signature dish? We do. Pho sure. We’ll take you there on our legendary Hanoi street food tour.
Holidays by foodies for foodies, we’ve got the inside track on all the most excellent Vietnamese delicacies; the restaurants, the street food stalls, even private kitchens - your private guide pleased to lead the way. Or what about learning to cook your own Vietnamese dishes with a cooking class in Hoi An. Get in touch today, and let’s talk food.
We’re not going to brag, we’re not the bragging type, but we do actually know all the best places to eat in Vietnam.
It’s amazing how many life-changing friendships are forged from a simple conversation out on the street.
We’re more than happy to leave the conventional to the conventional.
We like to turn left when others turn right to reveal a new perspective on this captivating country.

Bassac Cruise, Can Tho
Explore the mysterious, mesmerising Mekong Delta in comfort and style onboard the Bassac.
Chay Lap Farmstay, Phong Nha-Ke Bang
An oasis of calm and breathtaking countryside on the fringes of beautiful Phong Na-Ke Bang National Park.
Lak Tented Camp, Buon Ma Thuot
Peaceful views over beautiful Lak lake in Vietnam’s Central Highlands. Ideal trekking country.
Pilgrimage Village, Hue

Tam Coc Garden Resort , Ninh Binh
Tangles of lush greenery, calm waters, rice paddy fields, bamboo groves, orchards and tropical flowers - just 100km from Hanoi.
The Four Seasons Nam Hai, Hoi An
A luxurious private villa resort close to Hoi An Ancient Town just a few yards from the beach.
Overflowing with once-in-a-lifetime experiences, there’s surely no better place in the world to mark a special occasion, spend a little time with loved ones or simply explore for exploration's sake. For anyone interested in the Vietnam War (the American War, as it’s known in Vietnam), then the Cu Chi tunnels are an absolute must. And of course, no trip to Vietnam is complete without a riverboat journey down the evocative Mekong.
If you want to up the pace a little, then a Vespa ride from Hoi An to Hue is a great way to soak up the coastal scenery. And if you want to slow it down a notch, mosey around ancient Hue, Vietnam’s imperial city, or stroll the beaches of Hoi An or Phu Quoc. A bit peckish? There’s no shortage of mouthwatering foodie experiences, from cookery classes to street food tours, in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City.
And if you love landscapes, then explore the astonishing limestone karsts of Halong Bay (or, for insiders, Ninh Binh is just as beautiful but half as busy).
Or what about a bit of everything, a range of experiences? Or even combine experience in Vietnam and Cambodia (like the majestic temples of Angkor) - it’s your call.

Why Experience Travel Group?
