The highlight of any trip to Vietnam, today we take to the waters of the incredible Halong Bay. A UNESCO World Heritage Site and a vision of awe-inspiring beauty, we’ll sail lazily amongst the limestone karst peaks, soaking up the views from the deck of your traditional vessel and docking to visit an impressive cave.
Ho Chi Minh City, to use its official name—can be an assault of megacity chaos, courtesy of 13 million people and over 7 million motorbikes. Unlike the capital city, Hanoi, with its handsome old town and mist-covered lakes, finding Saigon’s charms can be a little more challenging. Many first-time visitors leave feeling disillusioned. Without a map and a plan, a day’s wandering can quickly become a fruitless experience. But for those willing to do a little research, Saigon is a city worthy of months, if not years, of exploration. The city limits stretch up and out from the waters of the South China Sea to within a stone’s throw from the Cambodian border. Fast-paced and fueled by convenience stores, Japanese two-stroke engines, and turbo-charged Vietnamese coffee, it’s the 24/7 city its older brother, Hanoi, is still catching up with.
