Vietnam Holidays

Beaches, mountains, culture: Vietnam has it all

Vietnam holidays reveal both the beauty and energy of this vibrant country. Its colourful past is filled with Imperial dynasties, French colonists and tumultuous years of war, intermingling to form a dynamic culture that is ever-present.

The Vietnamese welcome visitors with open arms, eager to flaunt their country’s natural beauty, its sparkling bays and rolling hills, modern metropolises and ancient cities. And in every corner the culture thrives, in the diverse landscapes, the friendly people and the delicious cuisine.

Much of the French influence remains, from ornate architecture to fluffy white baguettes, and the local cuisine is a highlight. Fresh ingredients pop with bold colours and complex flavours making Vietnamese cuisine one of Asia’s best. Sample it in unmarked holes in the wall or at fine dining restaurants on a Vietnam holiday you’ll never forget.

Varied food experiences, appreciated farewell dinner.
Halong bay was amazing.
Very busy schedule with early starts.
Unseasonal weather meant we were caught out ie. Cold and wet.
Suggest a supply of ponchos kept in bus until we could get warmer clothes.
Two classes divided the group with gold class people often whinging.
