Two Week Tour of Vietnam
Firstly, you need to choose from where you want to fly. You can fly from either London Heathrow or Manchester to Hanoi, where you will be taken to the Silk Queen Hotel. Once you check-in, use the free time to explore this great city and get some down time before the busy tour ahead. You will stay at this hotel for 5 nights in total.
No rest for the wicked, as day two marks the beginning of this adventure. At 8:00, you’ll be collected by a minibus after your breakfast. An English speaking guide will show you some local sights and attractions. You will learn about the culture, listening to Vietnam music and you will enjoy an authentic Vietnamese lunch. You will have the time to stroll around shops in the afternoon and if you want to, you can book for a Water Puppet Show, which is a very popular activity.
Day 3 starts with a three and a half hour scenic drive to Halong City. Once here, you will begin an unimaginable, overnight cruise through Halong Bay on Glory Cruise Halong Day Tour. A welcome drink, lunch, dinner and brunch is served to passengers on board, as you uncover the bay’s caves before anchoring overnight. Take the chance to dive into the clear waters for an evening swim.
Awaken to the fresh sea air, eat a delicious breakfast and prepare to explore the islands and floating fishing village. The next two days will be spent in Hanoi, where you can site-see at your leisure or you have the option to book a day long guided site-seeing tour.
On day six, you will experience some more of Vietnam’s magic, with a visit to Bai Dinh Pagoda, home to the biggest Pagoda and the tallest bronze Buddha in Vietnam. The afternoon will be spent relaxing on a boat cruise, as you admire the caves of Trang An.
Following this, a night train (1st class) will bring you to Danang. You will have a transfer from Danang Rail station to Hoi An. You will have time to explore Hoi an on your own and the hotel you will be staying for the next 7 nights will be the Hoi An Lantern, which has an outdoor pool among other luxuries. Day 8 will be your free day in Danang which you can spend as you prefer.
During day nine, you will be picked up at 8:00 from the hotel and you will visit My Son Sanctuary. My Son is a temple complex in Quang Nam Province which was built between the 4th and 13th century. This Hindu shrine is large complex and is a UNESCO World Heritage. Definitely worth the visit! After this exciting morning you’re free to spend your day.
