What makes Vietnam one of the most prized destinations in Southeast Asia is the sheer wealth of different landscapes and unique cultural attractions, each as incredible as the next, that can all be partaken in during a single stay.
Our Deltas, Beaches and Plateaus tour aims to show you all of these many treasures starting in the charming capital Ho Chi Minh City, where a tour by classic Citroen car or even a Vespa recreates the perfect colonial atmosphere.
From the capital it's on to the Mekong Delta for a cruise along the region's intertwining waterways in a boat modeled on the traditional sampan of the area. Staying overnight on the delta lets you enjoy the awe-inspiring sunrise and sunset at your leisure followed by a visit to the floating market at Cai Be. From there we return to Ho Chi Minh City to fly to the beaches of Nha Trang.
Nha Trang is a picturesque beach resort where crystal azure waters are interspersed with perfect islands, fringed in white-sand beaches. Here you have two days to relax and soak in the surroundings including beach barbecues and Vietnamese cooking classes before moving on again to Dalat.
Dalat is one of Vietnam's most quaint colonial towns where a truly continental atmosphere mixes with traditional Southeast Asian customs. Touring the town by Citroen lets you see all that this special place has to offer including the palace of the last Emperor of Vietnam. Spending two nights in Dalat gives you enough time to take in all the sights and still have time to relax, enjoy some spa treatments or simply bask in the unique cultural atmosphere.
