In a land of breathtaking natural beauty, abiding tradition and profoundly hospitable people, rewards abound for the thoughtful traveler. In our flexible and congenial group we encounter rewards aplenty on this comprehensive journey, featuring all the highlights plus the beautiful, remote Mekong Delta, where we spend two days.
￼Begin in the French-accented capital of Hanoi, where we will tour historical sites, eat local delicacies and experience traditional performances. From here, we will take a full- day excursion to beautiful Ha Long Bay, a UNESCO World Heritage site acclaimed for its limestone cliffs, grottoes and caves. Next, we fly south to Da Nang and tour the acclaimed Cham Museum, which celebrates the Cham people’s Hindu legacy. In the colorful village of Hoi An, cars are prohibited and ancient traditions still hold sway. We will walk in a rural farming community where rice paddies checker the land, water buffalo plow the fields and villagers bicycle to market. Then, we’ll travel to the ancient imperial capital of Hue — once home to emperors and mandarins — and cruise the Perfume River to peaceful Thien Mu Pagoda. During two days spent exploring the vital Mekong River Delta, the river life experience will leave an indelible impression. We conclude our journey in spirited Saigon (also known as Ho Chi Minh City).
