Vietnam Holidays

Characterised by a long s-shaped geography running from wind-swept peaks in the northern frontier with the French-colonial architecture of Hanoi and the karst scenery of Halong Bay to the mercantile history of Hoi An and languid chocolate-coloured waters of the southern Mekong Delta, Vietnam's incredible diversity of offerings is a credit to its position along the Indochina Peninsula. Relative to its land area, it has one of the longest and most abundantly beautiful coastlines, facing both the Eastern Sea and the Gulf of Thailand.

Our Vietnam specialists can also put in the itineraries for you the country’s off beaten path, lesser-known sights and experiences, such as discovering brightly dressed hill-tribe communities in the Sapa or the remote markets of Ha Giang — places and people we’ve come to understand since the birth.
