About This Trip

Take all the beauty, the must-see corners of the incredible country of Vietnam and condense them into ten invigorating days. This is what our genius team has managed to do with our Vietnam Highlights tour. There is no fleeting glance at the highlights either, this is the traditional DealsAway deep-dive where you will be guided by an English-speaking expert and immersed in the culture and customs of Vietnam, so you come away knowing you have experienced real, everyday life. 

 

You will explore the sheer beauties of Ho Chi Minh City, being guided around its finest temples, palaces and architectural gems. You will also explore the darker side of the city’s past, with a visit to the War Remnants Museum. You will also dive into the joys of Hoi An, a city crammed with Chinese, Dutch, French and Japanese influences, and explore the capital city of Hanoi and its stunning Old Quarter. 

 

Outside of the city are some natural treasures that we would be remiss to ignore. Not only will you cruise the otherworldly waters of the stunning Halong Bay, coasting through its ever changing pastel landscapes, past towering limestone plugs and through its sublime waters. We will take you out to the Mekong Delta where we will cycle through expansive rice paddies and jump on boats to row along canals spotting the vast amounts of wildlife as we go. 

 

Everywhere we go on this tour, we focus on showing you the wonders, but also hearing the stories and interacting with the locals to give you the ultimate flavour of Vietnam.

Other Info
highlights

Vietnam is a gentle wonderland filled with inspirational charm. Despite the apparent chaos of the traffic in its two main cities, beneath that facade lies a county whose lives are lived to a slower, more gentle beat. From early morning tai chi in the city parks to floating through the gentle waters of Halong Bay, there is peace to be found amongst the chaos everywhere you turn in Vietnam. 

 

Without really trying, this tour focuses on discovering this element of tranquillity. Even within the thriving cities, we will take you to the temples and palaces, the parks and riversides where people slow their lives down and where mindfulness is the constant state of being. You will ride through a quiet corner of the Mekong Delta on bikes, blending in with the gentle pace of rural life. You will head out to My Son, ancient temple ruins enclosed by lush jungle, a little off-the-beaten-track spot that, despite its beauty, not many tourists visit. 

 

And of course, there is the wonder of Halong Bay. To sail through this picturesque seascape is to take a voyage through an otherworldly landscape that you will never forget.


location

Your trip kicks off in Ho Chi Minh City, where your guide will collect you from the airport and take you to your hotel in the heart of the city.
