Classic Vietnam With Lightfoot Travel

Halong Bay, Vietnam

From local life to landscape, climate to culture, etiquette to ethnicity: exploring Vietnam brings with it an array of differences as you venture between north and south.

Start your 12-day adventure in Ho Chi Minh City, walking through central Saigon’s old and new winding backstreets and iconic buildings. The Park Hyatt Hotel will provide a wonderful haven after a day on your feet.

Hanoi is your next stop. Here, you’ll visit historic sites and uncover the city’s beautiful Old Quarter which is rich in French architecture and charm.

A boat ride at Halong Bay cannot be missed. Kick back and relax as you sail between islets, stopping off to admire the scenery or for a spot of swimming. One night will be spent on the boat before living it up at La Residence Hotel & Spa in Hue. Here, you can visit the surrounding ancient villages and rich countryside on foot or by bike.

Complete your trip with time in Hoi An wandering through the local market and myriad of alleyways, and discovering local workshops, fabulous restaurants and shopping. The Four Seasons Resort The Nam Hai is the perfect place to complete this trip of a lifetime.
