The cultural heart of Vietnam, vibrant and frantic Ho Chi Minh City is full of energy and opportunity for discovery. Wander winding alleyways to ancient pagodas and incense shrouded temples in a city of dazzling skyscrapers and revived colonial buildings, world-class dining and delightful local street markets all adding to the old-world charm.
Ho Chi Minh is your gateway to the Mekong Delta, a vast network of rivers, swamps and islands where you can visit floating markets, Khmer pagodas and riverside villages surrounded by sprawling rice paddies. Later you’ll head to Singapore for two nights, before embarking on an Asian exploration cruise with visits to islands scattered in the Andaman Sea, plus the ‘Islands of the Gods’ – Bali.
This fascinating tour visits the highlights of Ho Chi Minh City. During the morning you’ll visit Cu Chi Tunnels, an amazing complex of underground tunnels used during the Vietnam War as a base from which the Viet Cong could operate. Your guide will tell you all the stories of this maze-like hideaway. After a traditional Vietnamese lunch, you’ll embark on a gentle walking tour of Ho Chi Minh itself, a must for anyone with a love of history, culture and architecture.
Escape the city to enjoy a trip along the Mekong Delta. Cruise the Mekong River by traditional boat, visiting local villages to learn more about the lifestyles, cultures and customs of those who call the Delta home. You’ll also get a taste for coconut candies, visit a bee farm by rowing boat and sample the local cuisine on this 8-hour tour.
