Ten incredible days exploring the best of vibrant Vietnam, with hotel stays, transfers, a bay cruise, a massage, select meals and plenty of other extras

Vietnam is positively bursting with cultural delights – why limit yourself to just one? Rather than stick to a single city or side of this vibrant and multifaceted nation, opt for a sweeping 10-day tour, designed to acquaint you with the best this country has to offer. Aurora Travel's A Charming Vietnam itinerary begins in Hanoi and ends in Ho Chi Minh City, with stops at Ha Long Bay and Hoi An. The focuses of the program are just as varied, ranging from history to local cuisine, which you’ll learn about at a fruit-and-vegetable carving class and over one memorable lunch of fried spring rolls, soup and authentic chicken and beef dishes.

There’s something here for every traveler, whether the beach bummer, who will doubtless enjoy the chance to sunbathe on the sands of the Titov Island, or the city slicker, who will adore the cyclo tour around Hanoi’s Old Streets. When not based in one of three lovely hotels – including one with a World Luxury Hotel Award 2016 – or sleeping aboard a cruise ship on the bay, you’ll also get the chance to visit the Cu Chi Tunnels and enchanting caves. With a spa journey also included, it’s going to be a busy week and a half – luckily, there’s nothing you have to do but go along for the ride.

Good to know

Please note that flights or other means of travel both to and from Vietnam are not included and are the traveler’s responsibility. Domestic airfare is also not included.
