You’ll also get a fascinating insight into the Vietnam War at Reunification Palace, the Revolutionary & War Remnants Museums.
Another of Vietnam’s UNESCO listed gems, picturesque Hoi An in central Vietnam has beautifully preserved architecture, ancient cobbled streets, art stalls & street markets aplenty and fabulous restaurants. It’s also THE place to have literally anything made from suits & handbags to shoes & glasses. A top day trip is a bicycle ride to the quaint farming village of Tra Que on the outskirts of Hoi An.

A great way to get around and immerse yourself in the traditional local way of life in the Mekong is aboard a sampan, when you can try your hand at bartering at the floating market in Can Thou.
With a refreshing old world charm and it’s French colonial history very much evident, Hanoi, Vietnam’s capital, is dotted with scenic lakes and leafy boulevards The charming Old Quarter is not be missed and best explored by cyclo where you can sit back and take in all the sights and sounds, stopping off to sample the local street food or try your hand at bargaining in one of the many shops.
