What happens when you fuse two of Northern Vietnam’s most desirable locations into one trip? You get a journey for the ages! As if Vietnam is not desirable enough, you’ll bask in some of the country’s best sites, one of a bustling capital filled with Oriental and colonial charm and another site considered one of nature’s most remarkable places. This is Hanoi and Halong Bay, respectively and these two sites will fill your memory banks with unforgettable experiences. Complete luxury should be expected.
First stop, Hanoi. Feast your eyes on a city of contrasts: the Asian character with colonial flair, modern buildings side by side with lakes and wide tree lined boulevards. If you have been to Saigon before, you may find that this northern city has a more relaxed feel to it.
Some of the many cultural and historic sites the capital will be throwing at you include the grand and solemn mausoleum of Ho Chi Minh, the beautiful temple of literature compound and One Pillar Pagoda founded in 1049. Hoan Kiem Lake must not be missed. This is a pleasant place to be and a favorite hang out amongst the locals. Watch tai chi going on in the morning. Go for a walk. See locals relaxing the day out. Blend in with the locals.
Don’t forget the luxuries! Your stay in Hanoi includes a room at the legendary Sofitel Metropole Hotel, one of the most storied and opulent of Vietnamese stays. Spas? Check. Opulent meals? No problem.
Next up in your Northern Jewels discovery is a 1500 square kilometer, 3000 islet natural wonder. Yep, it’s none other than Halong Bay. According to legends, thes natural limestone marvels were created when dragons, sent by gods, spat jewels and jade into the area. It wouldn’t be surprising if those legends are true. The stuff here is that amazing! One highlight includes a private dinner on one of the beaches of the limestone islands. That will leave you with fond memories and breathe taking views.
Don’t limit yourself to Northern Vietnam. Like we said earlier, Vietnam’s such a desirable country. See what’s in store for you here.
