    Vietnam Discovery Tour - Itinerary

    Stunning scenery, colourful ethnic peoples, frenetic cities and tranquil coastal resorts – Vietnam has it all. And did we mention the food! This voyage of discovery will take you from Hanoi’s tree-lined boulevards to the breath-taking mountain landscapes of Sapa and Halong Bay’s majestic beauty in the north to the buzzling metropolis of Saigon in the south. En route we will visit the former imperial capital of Hue, whose Citadel walls still bear the scars of the 1968 Tet Offensive.
