Vietnam is a country of contrasts, from the beautiful sandy beaches of the south to the esoteric beauty of Halong Bay and from the fertile farmland around the Mekong Delta to the hill-tribe forests in the north, the country has something to offer every traveller. The timeless temples and pagodas stand beside vibrant skylines in Saigon and Hanoi, whilst in cities such as Hue and Hoi An, time seems to have stood still.

The capital Hanoi is the centre of the arts in Vietnam and has world-class museums, theatres and cultural shows while Ho Chi Minh in the south (which most people still refer to as Saigon) is the business hub of the country, though no less interesting. The imperial city of Hue along with nearby Hoi An offer an insight into Vietnam's long and interesting past with lots of traditional architecture and much more relaxed feel.

Our carefully put together Vietnam group tours guarantee to leave you with a longing to return to Vietnam and whilst our tours do visit the most popular tourist sites, there is lots more to see and do on a return trip!



Our video features bring our tours to life in a way the no photo can, you'll feel like you're on the tour.


From travel tips to country guides, packing lists to little known things to do, you'll find it all in our popular travel blog.
