This itinerary focuses on the highlights of Laos and Northern Vietnam. The itinerary begins with time in Luang Prabang, with its unique collection of temples, colonial architecture and blissfully relaxed atmosphere. You have plenty of time in Luang Prabang to explore at your own pace or to take a guided tour on electric bicycle. The famous Kuang Si Waterfall is a must visit and will provide you with a chance to cool off in the inviting water. Next up is a stop in the sleepy capital, Vientiane where you will enjoy an illuminated guided city tour. We also recommend a visit to the COPE centre, a charity that has helped the rehabilitation of local people with mobility issues.
Bid a fond farewell to Laos as you head over to Vietnam for a stay in the capital, Hanoi. Discover the charming French colonial quarters with a walking tour, as well as discovering the home of the “Father of Vietnam”, Ho Chi Minh. From Hanoi it is an easy drive where you will board a converted rice barge to drift among stunning limestone karst scenery on Halong Bay. A short flight will bring you to Hoi An, a Unesco World Heritage site and many people’s favourite location in Vietnam. Choose to base yourself at a beach hotel or stay nearer the the town centre where you can wander at leisure enjoying the unique atmosphere after dark when the colourful lanterns illuminate the town. Your adventure culminates with a stop in the bustling and modern city of Saigon. Here you will take in the main sights including Rue Catinat and the Reunification Palace. There is also the option to visit the Cu Chi Tunnels,which gives you the opportunity to understand how the Viet Cong were able to live and fight in the network of underground tunnels.
