2009 Taste of Vietnam-7 day Vietnam Tour

2009 Taste of Vietnam - 7 days

For travellers with limited time, this journey gives you a ‘Taste of Vietnam’, as you experience the highlights of Saigon, Hanoi and Halong Bay, all in 7 days. Marvel at the pace of change in youthful Saigon, come to understand the resilience of the Vietnamese people at Cu Chi Tunnels and relax amid the waterways of the Mekong Delta. Stay overnight aboard our private boat on stunning Halong Bay, experience the colour and activity of Hanoi’s fascinating Old Quarter and see the famous water puppet performance. Flying between major centres means you have more time to explore, meet the locals, discover delicious cuisine and shop.
