Itinerary

Day 1-3

Hue

Your adventure begins in Hue, the ancient imperial capital of Vietnam. Staying at the lovely boutique Ancient Hue Garden Houses, where each of the private villas are individually designed with a private pool surrounded by lush, tranquil gardens. Bicycles are available on site for you to use to explore Hue and the Imperial City. The concierge team can also assist in arranging yoga, cooking classes or food tours, candle lit dinners on the Huong River, bamboo paper art workshop, bike tours, and visits to nearby villages.

Jump on the back of a Vespa with your expert guide as they take you around the throng of Hue to the historic Citadel and taste the delicacies of the different street vendors as the city comes alive with entertainers, games and food.  As you ride on the back on the motorbike you can watch as the locals come out to play games, socialise and congregate around their favourite food stall before joining them for local pizza and beef skewers, a really fun evening to be had. You can also take a vintage vespa guided tour through the countryside to experience rural life here in Hue. They will take you off the beaten path of Hue where you will get to visit a family temple , the French colonial influence in the local architecture and take time to stroll the buzzing local marke5t and enjoy a ferry trip over the Perfume River. The perfect opportunity to experience local life whilst you are in Vietnam.

Accommodation: Ancient Hue Garden Houses ( 2 nights )
Day 3-7

Hoi An

From Hue your next stop is Hoi An, a three-hour drive over the world-famous Hai Van pass, featured on many motoring shows and definitely a must-do travel experience. Wind through the mountains with the glittering South China sea on one side and steep cliffs on the other, stopping often to take photos and soak up the scenery of one of the most beautiful roads in the world. In the afternoon you arrive in Hoi An, the charming UNESCO world-heritage site and ancient merchant town with a rich history. There is so much to explore here with fabulous markets and amazing riverside restaurants galore. 
Anantara resort is a haven of tranquillity designed to blend harmoniously with the environment. Situated on the banks of the Thu Bon River, this contemporary colonial style hotel is jammed packed with character and is in an amazing location to walk out to the lively bars and restaurants. 

Your guide will be able to orientate you with a half day morning tour of the Old Town, home to beautiful merchant houses decorated with Chinese, Japanese and Vietnamese influences. You will also stop in at a morning market, ideal for finding a new favourite local snack, or buying fabric which you can have tailored into new garments at one of the famous tailor shops, which specialise in making their clothes in just a day or two. Escape the city and discover the intricacies of Vietnamese cuisine as you explore a beautiful organic vegetable garden where you can pick ingredients for your cookery class and learn how to make a variety of delicious local dishes.

Accommodation: Anantara Hoi An Resort ( 4 nights )
Day 7-11

Central Vietnam and Beaches

Your final stop is the highly exclusive Six Senses resort of Ninh Van Bay. A short flight takes you to Cam Ranh airport and you will drive through the town of Nha Trang to reach the pier. Here a short speedboat journey will take you to the bay, formed by a mountainous peninsula curving into the sea, totally inaccessible by road.

The luxury private pool villas, all built to blend in with the natural environment, are designed either on the beach, over the water or into some of the amazing rock formations - and all come with their own private butler. With delicious cuisine served at the poolside, by the bay or on the rocks, you can choose your venue according to your mood. The seafood here is simply divine, with lobster, king prawn and fresh fish caught daily. Meals can also be enjoyed in several private locations around the resort including on the jetty, in your villa or even in the well-stocked wine cellar.  The resort has a fantastic Six Senses spa where expertly trained therapists create sensory journeys for guests with a range of holistic wellness and pampering treatments. For the more active there is a wide range of water sports from diving to waterskiing, kayaking to fishing as well as tennis, volleyball and badminton. For those wishing to keep active, the Mun islands are a short distance away, offering some of the best snorkelling and diving in Vietnam. This is a truly fantastic place to end your holiday to Vietnam.
