Vietnam


Holidays to Vietnam are like no other. This magnificent country embodies everything that’s loved about southeast Asia and mixes it with the crumbling heritage of a once war-torn land. A trip to Vietnam is utterly exotic, with golden temples, colourful architecture and some of the most picturesque beaches in the world, so adventure-seekers, beach bums and culture vultures will all feel right at home here.

See the exquisite beauty of Halong Bay, explore the luscious Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park or discover the colourful streets of Hue - however you choose to spend your trip to Vietnam, you’ll return full of stories.

Vietnam highlights


Vietnam is a culturally-rich country, with something new to explore around every corner. Wander the streets of the bustling city of Ho Chi Minh, where traditional street markets sit under futuristic skyscrapers. Venture north to Hanoi, Vietnam’s fascinating capital, and discover a plethora of ancient temples, intriguing museums and a gorgeous cityscape.

Head towards the coastline and be treated to miles of sandy beaches. Long Beach, on the west coast of Phu Quoc Island, is 20km of soft golden sand and turquoise waters, fringed by swaying coconut palms. Cua Dai Beach is not far from Hoi An, and boasts Caribbean-esque white sands and spectacular sunsets.

Designated as a World Heritage Site in 1994, the stunning Halong Bay is a sight to be admired. Float past towering limestone pillars and jungle-clad islets and experience Vietnam in its true form - a vision of breathtaking natural beauty.

To the centre of Vietnam lies Hue, pronounced ‘Hway’. Here you’ll discover a world of fascinating broken buildings and charred palaces - a constant legacy of the devastating Vietnam War that ravaged the country for three decades. Explore the humbling Imperial City and the Forbidden Purple City, and catch a glimpse of old Vietnam, and the last known homes of the Nguyen Dynasty emperors.
