12 Day Cultures and Cuisine of Vietnam

Incredible scenery, heart-warming people, outstanding architecture and delicious cuisine – all highlighted by world-class hotels and resorts – what more could one desire? On this immersive tour, discover the very best of Vietnam as you tour the country while enjoying personal time with provocative and fascinating individuals.

The adventure begins in Hanoi where you’ll meet a local photojournalist to discover what it’s like to report from war-zones, all while learning a few skills that will come in handy as you continue your trip. Later, you’ll tour key sites from the Vietnam War before engaging with a former VC pilot who – after being shot down by a US fighter – became best of friends with his former adversary.

After Hanoi, set off to picturesque Halong Bay to enjoy a luxurious overnight cruise aboard a traditional Junk-style vessel. The scene then shifts to Hoi An, where you’ll tour the city’s ancient sites before settling in for a beach-side sunset barbecue dinner. The next day, rise early for tea with local legend, Kung Fu Grandmaster Tran Xuan Man.

Last stop: Ho Chi Minh City. Here you’ll discover trendy and easy-to-miss speakeasies. Later, witness the wonder of the Jade Emperor Pagoda, visit the Reunification Palace, tour the labyrinthine Cu Chi Tunnels – arriving by private speed boat, no less – and cap off your experience by sitting down with renowned Vietnam Historian Tim Doling to put your entire experience into perspective.

Embracing the history, culture and cuisine of this remarkable country, this luxury tour enjoys a relaxed-pace, all while providing you with the opportunity to deeply understand and appreciate the incredible resiliency and warmth of beautiful Vietnam.
