During your time in Ho Chi Minh City, consider visiting the nearby Cu Chi tunnels; 250 kilometres of complex secret underground passages, used by the Viet Cong during wartime. These shelters are steeped in history, having protected Saigon against attacks from enemy forces. When wandering through the centre, take a stroll along the old Rue Catinat. The country’s French history is evident here, especially in the impressive Notre Dame Cathedral, opera house, post office and the Reunification Palace. Further inland, explore the ancient palaces and temples along the Perfume River, where Hue was once the center of politics and spiritual life in Vietnam.
For a true feast for the senses, go straight to the country’s most populous city. Vibrant Ho Chi Minh City buzzes to a soundtrack of a million scooters, retaining its local charm in timeless alleys, ancient pagodas and markets. Don’t forget to also visit the markets, palaces and museums of the capital, Hanoi. Further afield, the limestone karsts of Ha Long Bay are truly spectacular. Take an overnight cruise on a private junk and kayak through caves, floating markets and villages. Alternatively, board the elegantly appointed Victoria Express train from Hanoi to Lao Cai, to view the picturesque rolling hills and rice terraces of Sapa.
Looking for downtime? A stop at Nha Trang is highly recommended. This seaside village delivers barefoot luxury and pristine waters. Central Vietnam’s coast offers golden beaches and historic small towns. Wander around Hoi An, soaking up the area’s café culture, colorful lanterns and bustling markets.
