10 days from the South to The North of Viet Nam

Vietnam is an exotic land with bountiful beauty; stunning unspoiled beaches and tropical islands, vibrant-green rice paddies, ravishing rainforests, jungle-clad hills, limestone islands jutting out of the sea, magnificent mountains and awe-inspiring cave-systems. Its people are a curious mix of traditional and reserved, yet technology-loving, fun, friendly and hospitable, quick-witted and business-minded. Its cities are a heady blend of graceful, historic Orient and energetic, modern Indochina. Culture lovers will be enthralled by the melting-pot of influence ranging from Chinese to Indian (Cham), Japanese and of course French that has left its mark on the nation’s food, temples and architecture. The nation’s atmospheric capital, Hanoi blends elegant French-style boulevards with the hectic pace of its historic heart, the very Vietnamese Old Quarter, where hawkers, shops and street-food stalls jostle for space amongst ancient architecture and temples. Vietnam’s biggest and most bustling city, Ho Chi Minh City (often referred to by its former name, Sai gon), fuses graceful old architecture of French and Vietnamese design with thoroughly modern malls and tower-blocks. The central region displays the strongest traces of traditional Vietnamese culture in the pagodas, palaces, royal tombs and citadel of the imperial capital Hue and the graceful port-town of Hoi An. However, even these regions display traces of foreign influence, from the Japanese bridge in Hoi An to the nearby ancient Cham temple site of My Son. Head to the hills and you’ll encounter spectacular scenery and the more traditional, slower pace of life lived out by the 50-odd ethnic groups that reside in Vietnam.

Da Nang – My Son

After breakfast, a visit to the My Son Sanctuary is an experience that should not be missed while visiting the beautiful city of Hoi An. With us as your tour guide, enjoy a half-day trip to visit the capital and religious centre of the former Champa Kingdom, My Son, which has been designated as a UNESCO World Heritage site. During a time spanning from the 4th to 8th centuries, when Tra Kieu (then known as Simhapura) served as the political capital of Champa, My Son was the site of the most important Cham intellectuals and a religious centre. It is also believed that this site could have been used as a place of burial for Cham monarchs. My Son is considered to be Cham’s counterpart to the grand cities of South-East Asia’s other Indian influenced civilizations: Angkor (Cambodia), Bagan (Myanmar), Ayuthaya (Thailand), and Borobudur (Java). After the tour to the sanctuary, we will return to your hotel. Free time in the afternoon. Overnight in Da Nang. Read more

The unique atmosphere combines elements of Vietnam, China and Japan. The most remarkable views are from the ancient houses, reminding visitors of a long gone past and providing a momentary glimpse of a more subdued and simple time. The tour includes visits to Hoi An’s Museum, many of the town’s renowned Ancient Houses which boast remarkable architecture, Assembly Halls of Chinese influence, a handicraft workshop, and of course the Japanese Covered Bridge.
