Journey through Vietnam

Encounter Vietnam’s breathtaking natural beauty, abiding tradition, and profoundly hospitable people on this comprehensive 15-day journey.  Joining a small group limited to 24 travelers, see the country’s many highlights and spend two days in the beautiful, remote Mekong Delta.  Get acquainted first with the French-accented capital, Hanoi, during a three-night stay, touring the Ancient Quarter and other historic sites and sampling local cuisine.  On a full-day Ha Long Bay excursion, explore this stunning waterscape by boat.  Traveling on to Da Nang, tour the acclaimed Cham Museum.  Staying in a beachfront hotel here, enjoy a relaxing three-night interlude in this splendid setting.  Visit Hoi An and its charming Old Town, a UNESCO site, then take a cooking lesson.  A walking tour of a farming settlement reveals its daily life up close.  Journey next to Hue for exploration of the vast Imperial Citadel – a UNESCO site – and a cyclo ride, followed by dinner with traditional music.  Cruise the Perfume River to peaceful Thien Mu Pagoda, an important Buddhist monastery; and to the palatial Tomb of Minh Mang.  Spending the following two nights in a riverside hotel in Can Tho, experience river life in the storied Mekong Delta, visiting a lively floating market by boat then exploring the Mekong’s tributaries by sampan.  With three final nights in vibrant Saigon, see the city’s sights, including the notorious Cu Chi Tunnels, attend a traditional water puppet performance, and enjoy independent exploration.  Discover Angkor Wat’s amazing temples and Phnom Penh with an optional 5-day/3-night post-tour extension.
