Day 1 - Join tour in Hanoi and guided tour of the Old Quarter

Arrive in Hanoi and check-in at the hotel. Vietnam's bustling capital is architecturally styled like a French provincial town, with tree-lined boulevards and low-rise buildings. Hanoi is a wonderful nostalgic city to explore and this afternoon you have a guided walking tour of its Old Quarter. A maze of narrow lanes named after the various crafts and specialities of the city's artisans. The pavements are filled with food sellers tempting you with steaming noodles, snacks and stir-fried delights.

Day 2 - Tour of Hanoi with optional cooking class or a city tour

This morning we join our tour leader on a further sightseeing tour of Hanoi, visiting the One-Pillar Pagoda, the Temple of Literatures and the Mausoleum of Ho Chi Minh. The afternoon is then free to perhaps take an optional cookery class, or explore Hanoi's elegant French Quarter by bicycle. In the evening there is the chance to witness a remarkable performance of traditional water puppetry.

A UNESCO World Heritage Site, and one of the most visually impressive landscapes in South East Asia, Ha Long Bay is the setting for our overnight cruise. There are between 10-18 en-suite cabins (all bedding is provided) with a restaurant, bar and sundeck area. Boarding the boat in time for lunch, we set sail and visit Sung Sot Cave which means 'Amazing Cave' which is the largest of its kind in the area with numerous stalactite and stalagmite limestone formations in an impressive cavern. We then spend the rest of the afternoon exploring the bay before our Junkboat finds its mooring for the evening.

In the evening we board the Reunification Express overnight sleeper train to Hue, Vietnam's old imperial capital. We travel in soft sleeper compartments, with four passengers sharing each compartment with all bedding provided.

Arriving in Hue this morning, we enjoy some of the highlights of this historic city including a visit to the Royal Palace with its Terracotta Warriors guarding the entrance and the iconic Thien Mu Pagoda, home to the oldest monastery in the city. We also visit Mr Cu's house who was a national champion kite flier for Vietnam and he shows us how to make traditional Vietnamese kites which you make and decorate with iconic symbols such as dragons, birds and peacocks. Once assembled, we fly them at the nearby Citadel. The Citadel is an impressive monument that is almost 10 km in circumference with the Imperial City located in the centre of the Citadel which is more than 600m long on each side. Access to the Imperial City can be made by four entrance gates although the Noon Gate is only used for the King.

Day 6 - Cycle around the countryside, traditional wood painting and martial arts lesson

We travel to Trieu Son village which is located by the Perfume River on Hue's outskirts for a guided walk and boat ride. Our first stop is to Sinh village where we meet a local family that specializes in making wood paintings and they will teach the group how to make these traditional artefacts. We then take a leisurely cycle ride around the village and along countryside lanes to Thanh Tien village which is famous for paper flowers. Continuing through paddy fields and the Vietnam countryside, we arrive at Tien Non village where we board our cruise boat which takes us back to Hue (total cycling distance is approximately 6km). An included martial arts lesson is our next stop with a visit to a dedicated martial arts school that practices the Vietnamese art of Kinh Van, the countries equivalent to Kung Fu which is based upon defence techniques from the actions of a tiger, cobra, and bird. The owner's ancestors were chosen to guard the Vietnamese king and he now teaches this ancient art. We then travel over the Truong Son Mountains and through the Hai Van Pass, as seen on the TV programme, Top Gear, to the historic merchant seaside town of Hoi An.

Day 7 - Free in Hoi An; optional bike hire or visit the towns famous tailors

The morning is free to wander through the historic heart of this World Heritage Site, taking in the wonderfully preserved buildings of what was once one of the busiest trading outposts in South East Asia. Discovering this delightful town, we recommend an early morning visit to Hoi An's fish market which presents the perfect setting for some great photographs and some priceless interaction with the locals. Visit the city's famous Japanese Bridge, before wandering through its historic collection of traditional wooden houses and Chinese temples. This afternoon you could hire bicycles and explore the surrounding countryside, experience a gentle river cruise, spend time at the beach, or grab the chance to visit some of Hoi An's famous tailor shops.

Day 8 - Drive to Danang, fly to Ho Chi Minh City with walking and cyclo city tour

Our drive to Danang this morning takes us past the five peaks of the Marble Mountains, originally believed to have been islands that were said to represent the five elements of water, wood, fire, gold and earth. On arrival in Danang, we then board the morning flight to Ho Chi Minh City. Upon arrival we have a walking tour of Saigon with a local guide plus a cyclo tour (cycle carriages with a seat at the front) around Saigon's China Town and the Binh Tay Market areas.

Accommodation: Liberty 4 Hotel(or similar)

Day 9 - Morning visit to Cu Chi Tunnels; Afternoon free with optional visit to a water park

After breakfast this morning we head out to visit the infamous Cu Chi tunnels. First constructed by the Vietnamese during their colonial war with the French, the tunnels were later greatly expanded and went on to achieve notoriety during the Vietnam War, when they served as an underground command base for 10,000 Viet Cong troops. Exploring Cu Chi gives some idea as to the conditions that the Vietnamese and their American adversaries had to endure (the tunnels are narrow and can be quite claustrophobic). The afternoon allows for more time in the city including an optional visit to the waterpark, a great way to cool off from the mid-day sun.

Accommodation: Liberty 4 Hotel(or similar)

Standard Hotel
Meals Provided: Breakfast
Day 10 - Drive to the Mekong Delta, cycle ride, homestay and cooking lesson

Leaving the city, we drive to the Mekong Delta and catch a boat to the start point of our cycle ride. We cycle for around 10-12 km along the flat Cai Thai village path with constant views of the delta as we wind our way around its many tributaries. The route is often shaded which is helpful to combat the humidity (the boat can pick up cyclists at various stopping points if required). Along the way, we visit Mrs Nani's home who will show us how to make rice paper in the traditional way and Mr and Mrs Chin's home who will provide refreshments that include her famous 'Banh Tieu' (traditional doughnut). We return to the boat where we have lunch on-board and sail close to our night stop. Transferring from our cruise boat to a sampan craft, which is a small traditional boat that is regularly used by the villagers to travel along the delta, we complete our journey to our homestay close by. Set in a lovely garden setting with a main lounge area and dining room, accommodation is en-suite (shower and toilet) with traditional décor throughout. After settling into our simple but clean accommodation, we have a Vietnamese cooking lesson in the afternoon and the owners usually give a traditional dancing and singing show to entertain their guests.

Accommodation: Ut Trinh Homestay(or similar)

Simple Homestay
Meals Provided: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Day 11 - Drive back to Ho Chi Minh City via Cai Be Floating Market

Leaving the homestay behind, we cruise along the delta to the famous Cai Be Floating Market. One of the most colourful attractions of the Mekong is its floating markets and we visit one of the biggest in the Delta at Cai Be. Spend some time cruising through the market and soaking up the atmosphere of this unique trading point. After our visit, we drive back to Saigon where the trip ends in the afternoon (Day rooms are available).

Summer months, May to September can be quite hot with temperatures from 30 - 35 degrees.
