3 Cities in Vietnam, and My Love

8 Day Vietnam Itinerary

Explore the cuisines and cultures of Vietnam’s most influential cities on this whirlwind tour of North, Central, and South Vietnam. Enjoy exciting activities and stunning scenery.

Why this is an ideal adventure in Vietnam…

In the North, you’ll discover why Hanoi is the nation’s romantic capital, as well as the gateway to indigenous societies and mountainous regions. Central Vietnam is home a vital landmark known as the ‘Imperial Enclosure.’ To the South, you’ll learn why Ho Chi Minh City (formerly Saigon) is a bustling powerhouse.

The most adventurous part of this trip will be…

The Vespa tour of Hanoi after dark. You’ll zoom through the streets of Hanoi with frequent stops to sample the country’s delicious fare. Later on, you’ll enjoy another foodie excursion on a combination sight-seeing tour and cooking class in the royal city of Hue (the ‘kitchen of Vietnam’).

Our advice to visitors of Vietnam is…

There’s a lot to take in, but don’t feel rushed — enjoy the experience. Tours such as gliding along the Mekong River or spending a full day exploring Hanoi are a chance to learn new things, take in the scenery, and do so at a decidedly slower pace. You’ll also have free days to call your own shots.
