Tour Location

Vietnam holidays

Vietnam is a traveller’s paradise with its lush mountains, bustling cities, golden sand beaches. glistening views of paddy fields, rich culture, vibrant festivals and ceremonies dating back hundreds of years, and the best food in Southeast Asia, whether that’s fine dining or street markets. There’s a bit of everything from glitzy Ho Chi Minh City to trendy Hanoi. The country deserves a good week or two of exploring. Popular destinations not to miss include, north to south: Hanoi, the capital city on the banks of the red river; World Heritage Site and natural wonder Ha Long Bay; the historical sites of Da Nang; the golden sand beaches of Nha Trang; the picture perfect sea port of Hoi An; history-rich Hue and Ho Chi Ming City (Saigon), and the stunningly beautiful island of Phu Quoc.


A wonderful ecotourism destination beyond Angkor Wat. The temple complex of Angkor Wat, at some point world’s largest religious monument and also a huge ancient city, is the undisputed highlight of Cambodia. Angkor Wat is magnificent, but there is so much more to Cambodia. It’s a real shame to miss out. Combining Angkor Wat with southern Cambodia can easily keep you busy for 2 weeks or more.
