The Cruise – Set sail on the waters of the breathtaking Halong Bay on a luxury ship

Complete with a piano bar, day spa and wellness centre, this sleek and modern ship fuses contemporary styling with Vietnamese design concepts, creating the perfect overnight experience.

As you explore the unspoiled beauty of limestone islands and stunning surroundings, your onboard chef will prepare decadent dining experiences for you to enjoy between activities such as kayaking in the waters of the bay at your own pace, a Tai Chi class on the sundeck or visiting the impressive Sung Sot Cave – the largest in the bay.

The Experiences – Ancient sites, bustling cities and exquisite natural beauty

Discover the buzzing metropolis of Ho Chi Minh City. Known for its French colonial landmarks and bustling streets lined with food stalls, this city is the perfect introduction to Vietnam. Wander through timeless alleys, visit the Reunification Palace, and the War Remnants Museum, uncover incense-infused temples and indulge in the most authentic Vietnamese street food.

Outside Ho Chi Minh City, you will visit the extraordinary Cu Chi Tunnels: This impressive network of tunnels, over 200km long and still containing trapdoors, living areas, kitchens and storage facilities, became legendary during the Vietnam War. Used by Viet Cong soldiers as hiding places during combat, the tunnels also served as communication and supply routes - and stand now as a poignant reminder of those harrowing war years.

Embrace the delights of the UNESCO World Heritage town of Hoi An, where you will explore pagodas, museums and see the famous Japanese covered bridge - an emblem of the city that survived over centuries – and still remains faithful to its original design.

When in Hoi An, you will embark on a once-in-a-lifetime experience in a local village where you will discover the traditional farming methods from locals, pick vegetables and herbs and join a hands-on cooking class where you will learn how to make Tam Huu spring rolls – the village specialty.

Stop by Hue, Vietnam’s last feudal capital, a small and quaint city widely known for its magnificent architecture and pagodas. Here you will enjoy an exciting cyclo tour around the city, visit Dong Ba market for some souvenirs and find out more about the construction of Minh Mang Mausoleum - built by over 10,000 workers and artists.

Discover the capital city of Vietnam: Hanoi. Known for its centuries-old architecture and rich culture, with Southeast Asian, Chinese and French influences, Hanoi will have you captured from the beginning. Your local guide will take you to the Ho Chi Minh Complex, where you will see the mausoleum of the nation’s founder, before heading to the remarkable Temple of Literature, the country’s first university.
