Are you ready to experience her overnight trains, terraced rice paddies and idyllic hilltribe villages? Can you picture yourself floating in the South China Sea, dining on the freshest seafood you've ever tried and watching the sun set over the Cambodian border? If this sounds like your kind of 'Grand Adventure,' then look no further.

Hanoi, Halong Bay, Mai Chau, Reunification Express, Quang Binh, Hue, Hoi An, Nha Trang, Dalat, Can Tho, Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon).

Not Ready to go Home Yet?: Instead of returning to Saigon from the Mekong, cross the border into Cambodia on an exciting speedboat journey that will bring you upriver to Phnom Penh. Then discover Angkor Wat and more in Siem Reap. Our experts can easily arrange it.

Ask our Travellers:"This was truly a dream holiday. This was our first experience on a group journey and we entered with a bit of trepidation, but as your advertising rightly suggested the group was of like-minded people, all wit a great sense of humour and after the same style of experience." P & J. Dowell - UK

Responsible Travel: Your ecolodge in Mai Chau not only employs people from the local community, but also utilises solar power so it is both socially and environmentally responsible.
