Tailor-made Vacations to Vietnam

What you will see and experience:

Apart from the Ha Long Bay, Bai Tu Long Bay and some exotically beautiful caves, Vietnam also surprises you with its gorgeous islands, lakes and fishing villages. And with this natural, geographical beauty exist all the human-life details, complementing and enriching a traveller’s soulful experiences. Vietnam is old but timeless in its effortless charm.

To welcome a new day by climbing up a cave isn’t an opportunity that comes along often. Climbing up the Mua Cave to see the sun rising to define the horizon clearly, to gather the details of the countryside and of the beautiful Ngo Dong river in a sweeping view is a bliss. You can also see the spectacular lush-green rice fields, rocky outcrops before visiting the Bich Dong Pagoda. At Thung Nang, you relish the scenic beauty of this old land languorously.

The Ha Long Bay is perhaps the most vital Vietnam experience – to grasp the depth of emerald-blue waters dotted by rugged beauty of the tall limestone islands wearing rainforests. The sinking limestone plateau, the Bai Tu Long Bay, is yet another untamed part of the country. As is the wild Thien Canh Son Cave.

The sandy beach at the Hon Co Island is for your leisurely mood, and you can soak in the delightful native details at the Vung Vieng fishing village, which you can reach by rustic row boats to see. In the Yen Duc village in the Dong Trieu province, you can enjoy a rare art-form, the water puppet show performed by local artists.

A place bustling beautifully with human activity is a market. You can visit one on the edge of the city of Hanoi, along with the railway tracks around which thrive more human activity. At the Hoan Kiem Lake, as you witness more of nature’s music, you can also see the locals practicing Tai Chi, all leading to surprising experiences.

The Saint Joseph’s Cathedral, built in 1886, is another breathtaking place you will see, along with the ancient Temple of Confucius, Temple of Literature, built in 1070. At the Huu Tiep Lake, better known as ‘B-52 Lake’, the US B-52 bomber wreckage makes an interesting sight. When you return from Vietnam, you will have a vast array of stories to share.
