Your Destination

The ancient city of Hanoi (founded in 1010) has it all. It is the capital of Vietnam and is famed for its ancient architecture, boasting a very diverse culture with injections of influences from Asia, China and France. At the centre of Hanoi is the bustling Old Quarter, where the narrow thoroughfares are divided into trades. A visit here is not complete without a trip to the Dong Xuan market where the world famous street food must be sampled.

By contrast, Ho Chi Minh City is famous around the world for its key role in the Vietnam war. Otherwise known as Saigon, Ho Chi Minh City is in the south of Vietnam and has amazingly well preserved French colonial architecture, which is a key pull for visitors on Vietnamese tours. Must-sees included the Notre Dame Basilica, which was constructed entirely from materials imported from France, and Saigon’s central post office. Like Hanoi, travellers must sample Vietnamese cuisine on the excellent food stalls in the bustling Ben Thanh Market.
