Best time to Visit

Good time to visit

Average time to visit

Vietnam is a long country resulting in varied weather patterns. The best time to visit the country as a whole is from January to May with the least rain in both the cultural areas and on the beach. Outside of these months it is possible to still visit and you will get some rain in the north and south from May to November and on the central coast from September to January. Tet, the Vietnamese Lunar New Year falls in late January or early February and is best avoided as many businesses close.

Itinerary

A wonderful introduction to this beautiful country, full of charm and diversity. Visit Vietnam’s current capital, ancient capital and former capital along with the UNESCO protected areas of Halong Bay and Hoi An town, before indulging in a generous helping of relaxation time on the beach in this perfect two week tour of Vietnam’s highlights.

  1. Days 1-4: Hanoi

    Your adventure begins in Hanoi, Vietnam’s characterful capital. You can stay right in the heart of the city next to the central Hoan Kiem lake, with the fascinating Old Quarter right at your fingertips. We recommend spending a day fully exploring the winding lanes and intriguing shops of this area, but we have also arranged a guided tour of key historic locations such as Ho Chi Minh’s mausoleum and the Temple of Literature where university students flock to pray and make offerings around the time of their exams. With your guide, discover local eateries and unfamiliar delicacies on an exciting food tour.

    Accommodation: Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi (3 nights)

  2. Days 4-6: Halong Bay

    No trip to Vietnam is complete without a visit to the world-famous Halong Bay. Rise early to drive or optionally take a thrilling sea plane ride to the coast, and embark on a two-night cruise, heading to the more far-flung areas of the bay less often visited by tour boats. Journey between the looming limestone karsts that erupt from the calm sea and explore local villages and fishing communities by bicycle or kayak. Cooking demonstrations, spa treatments and midnight squid fishing are all available on board, or alternatively just steal up to the top deck after a delicious supper to enjoy a spot of star gazing.

    Accommodation: Bhaya Classic Premium (2 nights)

  3. Days 6-8: Central coast

    Rise early for a final Tai Chi class on the sundeck before you start the journey back to Hanoi airport. A short flight gets you to the imperial city of Hue in the afternoon of your sixth day, ready for two nights in the ancient capital of Vietnam. Enjoy a full day tour of the ruined walled city with your knowledgeable guide and pop in at the elaborate Khai Dinh Royal Tomb. Hue is famed for its delicious cuisine, so we recommend popping in at one of the many fabulous restaurants to sample some local fare.

    Accommodation: La Résidence Hôtel & Spa Hue (2 nights)

  4. Days 8-11: Central coast

    Drive over the famous Hai Van pass, stopping to take photos and soak up the gorgeous scenery before arriving in the UNESCO World Heritage town of Hoi An where you can discover the rich history and culture of this ancient Japanese, Chinese and European trade port. During your stay you can visit the elegant pagodas, Japanese covered bridge and bustling riverfront markets where you can have clothes tailored for you. We have included a morning walking tour of the town where your guide will show you around the historic Old Town and the busy morning food market where you can pick up tasty local snacks.

    Accommodation: Anantara Hoi An Resort (3 nights)

  5. Days 11-14: Central coast

    Fly down to Nha Trang where you will be whisked away to one of the amazing beach resorts in the exclusive Ninh Van Bay area, a calm bay and peninsula that can only be accessed by boat. Here you can relax on the beach, indulge in a spa treatment and be pampered with delicious cuisine and fantastic service. For the more active, you can take a snorkeling or diving trip to nearby Hon Mun island, home to colorful coral reefs and an array of sea life.

    Accommodation: Six Senses Ninh Van Bay (3 nights)

  6. Days 14-16: Saigon

    For a final culture fix spend a couple of nights in the melting pot of Ho Chi Minh City, the Independent Republic of South Vietnam’s capital up until the country was unified in 1975. With our friendly guide you can visit the Old Saigon Post Office, Notre Dame Cathedral and the fascinating War Remnants Museum to fully understand this bustling city’s varied history. Two nights will be plenty of time to bid farewell to Vietnam in the city that never stops moving.

    Accommodation: Park Hyatt Saigon (2 nights)
