With each part of the end beautifully characterised, you will find the lush Red River Delta and the highlands in the north, known for its magnificent scenery and colourful hill tribes, which seems to perfectly complement the agricultural plains and floating markets of the Mekong Delta in the south. Vietnam’s war-torn history has drawn the influences from the French, Chinese and Americans, each leaving their unique print on the nation where it has become readily apparent in the character of its towns as well as in the architecture and food.

On this amazing highlights of Vietnam Tour you will not only experience the two main cities of Vietnam, but also cruise into the mystical Halong Bay, declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its spectacular scenery where more than 2,000 islets rise from the Gulf of Tonkin. From Hanoi you will make your way by flight to the former Nguyen Dynasty's capital and royal city of Hue, situated on the country’s central coast. This city is well-known for its splendid historical sights, and is dominated by the massive Citadel that once seated the emperors of this former Forbidden Purple City. Not too far from Hue you will make your way by road and visit the quaint town of Hoi An, once a major trading port, boasts the perfectly preserved architectural influences of the Asian merchants from the north.

This beautiful Highlights of Vietnam tour comes to an end as you spend your last portion of this journey in Ho Chi Mihn City, or better known as Saigon, the largest city and business capital of Vietnam.
