There’s no country that captivate you with its charm, heritage and character than Vietnam. Centuries of varying influences and history have resulted in a country that will forever change you and your view of her. A tour, an absolute detailed one is just what you may need to escape from reality and into another realm in Vietnam. Prepare to be captivated! Be warned: there’s a little bit of everything here!
Start in the south, Saigon. And a good starting point of what’s to come. Soak in the varying atmosphere, a combination of old colonial charm, traditional Oriental flavor and a burgeoning and rapidly modernizing city. From here, you’ll also get to see a tragic side of Vietnam as we take you to one of the legacies of the Vietnam/American War, the Cu Chi Tunnels. And you can’t help but be hypnotized by the Mekong Delta, can’t you? Laid back water living takes on a whole new meaning down there.
From the lowlands to the high, your next destination is the hill station town of Dalat. You may need a light sweater up here, because it can get cool, the exact reason why the French built the town in the first place. And the resemblance is like an Alp Mountain town. If you are brining your honey, then this is your romantic stop in Vietnam.
How about a little downtime on the beach? This is where Nha Trang comes in. But there is also some culture here, evident by the Po Nagar Cham Towers and Long Son Pagoda. In the meantime, spend your days at leisure.
And now for some UNESCO Heritage. Well, we told you to be prepared for diversity. Hoi An is your town, and a 1700 Vietnamese old world town is your atmosphere. And from here, check out the Champa influence from the nearby My Son temple ruins.
Discover the Imperial side of Vietnam at Hue. Pay homage to past emperors as you traverse the romantic sounding Perfume River and visit their mausoleums. Hey, to rule such a beautiful country like this truly deserves homage.
And now the capital Hanoi. Tree-lined boulevards, French colonial architecture, peaceful lakes and oriental temples make for a unique blend of east and west in this beautiful city. And experience her flavor and charm by visiting her sites, ranging from pagodas, museums and the cool sounding Lake of the Restored Sword.
Recap your Vietnamese trips with excursions to some of the north’s finest natural gems. First Sapa, a former French hill resort and home to some of Vietnam’s most diverse ethnic groups. Absorb the local flavor at the market and local villages, all located in the area’s beautiful rolling hills.
Finally, Halong Bay. You’ve never seen a sight like it. Impressive limestone karsts bursts out of the turquoise blue waters, all while you sit back and relax on your the Emeraude, an early 20th century replica of a steam boat. Swim the waters, kayak to islands, explore the caves, learn Vietnamese cooking, practice Tai Chi, it’s all to do while you reflect back on your awesome Absolute Vietnam experience. Do so while the sun is setting. The scenery is perfect for it!
Perhaps the ultimate tour is not enough for you. See what we have in our Vietnam tours.
