Vietnam Holidays Perfect For You
If you’re an active traveller who loves the chance to immerse yourself in the entire experience of the places you visit, then Barefoot Traveller’s range of Vietnam holidays and its 12-night City & Coast Cultural Explorer is an ideal holiday choice.
For you a holiday isn’t just about being waited on or spending all day, every day by the pool and if you want something more than just visiting historic sites, a cultural explorer holiday ensures you can discover and embrace Vietnam’s modern-day culture as well.
Starting with 2-nights in cosmopolitan Saigon, soak up the chequered history of Vietnam with a visit to the remarkable Cu Chi Tunnels, a vast network built by the Viet Cong as a hideout during the Vietnam War. Embrace modern-day Saigon’s café culture trying pho or bun cha from one of the bustling street kitchens. You’ll also get an authentic taste of Vietnam by joining an overnight Bassac boat cruise on the Mekong River, the best way to discover hidden areas of this fascinating region. Smaller rowing boats take you closer to local Cham villages and the colourful sights and sounds of the floating markets of Cai Rang. Enjoy a cyclo ride along the peaceful riverside lanes and in the evening dine under the stars as you drift along the Delta.
There’s also a 2-night stay in architecturally graceful Hue and 2-nights in the ancient coastal city of Hoi An with its UNESCO World Heritage sites and you’ll pass by stunning China Bay along the way.
Embracing the cultural explorer in you, discover the understated charm and elegance of the capital, Hanoi, taking a cyclo tour of the vibrant Old Quarter and catching a traditional water puppet show. Vietnam holidays aren’t complete without witnessing the breathtaking scenery of spectacular Halong Bay, so spend an afternoon cruising the 1000s of limestone islands and caves from a luxury traditional junk. There’s an option to stay onboard overnight too. Seek out your very own unique insight into the culture, people and places of Vietnam with Barefoot Traveller’s City & Coast Cultural Explorer.
