This all too short Taste of Vietnam takes you through the highlights of the country – Saigon, Hoi An, Hue and Hanoi, and allows for a short 3 day/2 night extension in Halong and Bai Tu Long Bays. You have time to get a real sense of local life by exploring markets, taking a boat and biking or walking through the Mekong Delta, learning how locals farm in Hoi An and how they cook. Amid the Cham ruins of My Son, Vietnam’s answer to Siem Reap, you can marvel at the architecture, in Hue, you can appreciate the lifestyle of the Nguyen emperors, and in Hanoi, you have everything from War Museums to a Cheo music performance.
Then, for those who wish, there is an optional 3-day extension to Bai Tu Long and Halong Bays, aboard the charming Au Co.
