Hanoi

Begin your stay in Vietnam with a few nights in the capital city Hanoi. We recommend a minimum of three nights here to allow enough time to experience all the city has to offer. The Old Quarter is a maze of charming streets dating back to the 13th century and the narrow alleyways are each named after the goods once sold there. In addition the Temple of Literature, Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum and One Pillar Pagoda are also well worth a visit.

If you have longer to spend, why not travel down to the UNESCO World Heritage Site Halong Bay and spend a night cruising among the limestone cliffs? Around four hours' drive from Hanoi, this is one of the most iconic sights in Vietnam and an experience not to be missed!

Hoi An

The beautiful and incredibly charming town of Hoi An is situated just south of Danang in central Vietnam. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Old Town is characterised with winding lanes and wonderful chinese-style architecture dating back to the 15th century. Hoi An has many tailor shops, great for made-to-measure clothing. In the evening, the town comes alive with with hundreds of colourful lanterns lighting up the streets and the Thu Bon river. 

We recommend spending around four nights here to really soak up the beauty and character of the area. If you also want to make the most of the nearby beaches you could easily base yourself here for a week.
