    • King Ly Thai To square, discovery of the thousand-year-old history of the Vietnamese capital.

    Ly Thai To is the founder of the Ly dynasty (1009-1225). It was he who transferred the capital from Hoa Lu to Hanoi in 1010

    • Lake of the Restored Sword with the temple of Mount Jade, the Turtle Islet, in the heart of Hanoi.
    • Explore the Hanoi Old Quarter with 36 corporation streets, where you can stroll through craft streets bearing the name of the goods that were produced and sold there. Don't forget to stop at Ma May Street and visit an old 'Tube' house, a characteristic feature of traditional Hanoi architecture.

    This Old Quarter is located in the heart of Hanoi and is full of old houses, temples, bustling markets, artisan shops, and traditional restaurants. It is an emblematic place that testifies to the history and culture of the Vietnamese capital.

    Discover the colonial heritage with French concessions: take a cycle rickshaw ride through the city to visit the Grand Théâtre, the Métropole hotel, the state bank, the Central Post Office… End your day with a relaxing night at the hotel.

    A day dedicated to exploring Hanoi's most remarkable cultural sites and historical monuments:

    Built 1000 years ago, this Confucian temple served as an institution where royal offspring and sons of mandarins received their education. It also hosted competitions for the country's most talented students, with the winners attaining the status of scholars and senior officials in Vietnamese feudal dynasties.

    In the evening, catch a flight to Hue, the historic imperial city located in the central part of Vietnam.

    Overnight stay in Hue.

    Begin your city tour of Hue, the last imperial capital of Vietnam from 1802 to 1945:

    • Explore the Imperial City, the historic residence and workplace of the 13 Nguyen kings over 143 years.

    Enjoy your night at the hotel in Hue.

    Commence a road journey to the enchanting town of Hoi An, situated approximately 150 km to the south of Hue. This scenic drive offers several captivating stops along the way:

    • Discover the unspoiled, less-touristy Thuan An and Lang Co beaches, both boasting long stretches of golden sands. Additionally, you'll encounter vast lagoons where diverse types of fish farms support the local community.
    • Traverse the Cloud Pass, renowned as the highest mountain pass in central Vietnam. This significant pass, nestled between Hue and Da Nang, serves as a natural climatic boundary that separates the northern and southern regions of the country. As you reach its summit, you'll be treated to awe-inspiring vistas of the stunning bays of Lang Co and Da Nang, stretching as far as the eye can behold.
    • Be captivated by picturesque roadside cemeteries affectionately known as "Ghost Towns." These cemeteries feature clusters of intricately carved tomb-castles, each showcasing distinct Asian architectural styles. From a distance, they resemble opulent cities.

    Upon your afternoon arrival in Hoi An, you'll proceed to check in at your hotel, where you'll enjoy a comfortable overnight stay.

    Enjoy a full day at your leisure for independent exploration of Hoi An's charming old town. You have various options:

    • Explore the historic Old Quarter, wander through its narrow streets, and discover its unique charm. You can also indulge in shopping for local products like lacquerware, handicrafts, and more.

    After a day of exploration and relaxation, return to your hotel for the night. 

    After a flight to Ho Chi Minh City, the capital of the south (formerly Saigon), you'll begin your exploration of the city's center, often referred to as "colonial Saigon." Here are the details:

    Ho Chi Minh City, formerly known as Saigon, is the largest city in the country, with a population of around 10 million. It serves as a gateway to various regions, including the Mekong Delta, the coastline, and the southern highlands.

    • Visit Ben Thanh Market, an iconic symbol of the city.

    • Explore the Notre Dame Cathedral and the Central Post Office, both architectural gems designed according to the plans of Gustave Eiffel.

    • Discover the Headquarters of the People's Committee of Ho Chi Minh City, which was once the Central Town Hall and stands as one of the city's most beautiful colonial buildings.

    • The Museum of Traditional Medicine of Vietnam, discovery of traditional Vietnamese medicine, more than 3000 years old.

    Spend the night at your hotel.

    Departure for the Mekong Delta, a half-land, half-aquatic territory in the far south of the country.

    Arrival at Ben Tre, the large town located in the heart of the northern arms of the river. Boat trip on the rivers to reach Mo Cay, a small rural region with little tourism, well known for its coconut trade and the manufacturing of coconut products: coconut, coconut thread, activated coconut carbon, etc.

    Bike ride or Xe loi (motorized cycle) on the green island abundantly covered with coconut plantations. The route, away from mass tourism, takes you along small paths, under the shade of coconut trees, which offer a particularly poetic landscape. Stop at farms to observe the manufacture of sweets and coconut brooms.

    Continue with a trip in a small rowing boat through the arroyos surrounded by water palm trees, to immerse yourself in the daily life of the delta. Visit to Mr. Van's traditional house, tasting of local specialties made by his wife: coconut jam, tea with honey and pollen... and great encounters with the local population.

    Afternoon, transfer to Vinh Long and arrive at the island of An Binh (“peace”) located in the middle of the Mekong. Installation at Mme Thuy’s, a peaceful guest house with a beautiful garden. Free time to relax in a very calm and relaxing environment.

    In the evening, participate in the preparation of the meal then have dinner with your creations.

    Night at Madame Thuy’s.

    Wake up early, greet the guests, then transfer to Can Tho, the capital of the delta, located on the right bank of the southern arm of the Mekong.

    On arrival, board a boat for a trip on the Mekong. Visit the Cai Rang floating market, which looks like a lively show bringing together numerous boats loaded with fruits, vegetables... and all other types of goods. Discovery of the very original 'river trade' of the inhabitants of the Mekong region.

    Disembark for a visit to the An Binh land market located opposite Cai Rang, an opportunity to make an interesting comparison between the floating market and the land market. Transfer to Phong Dien, visit an orchard, then bike ride through small hamlets along the So Dua River. In the afternoon, return to Ho Chi Minh City.

    You will be transferred to the airport for your flight to Phu Quoc, the idyllic island paradise nestled in the southernmost reaches of the country, situated within the Gulf of Thailand.

    Prepare for an overnight stay in the tranquil surroundings of Phu Quoc, where you can unwind and relish the serenity of this island haven.

    Enjoy two leisurely days with complete freedom to explore and unwind on the captivating island of Phu Quoc, often referred to as a "paradise for relaxation and well-being" by enthusiasts of pristine sandy beaches.

    You can spend your time relaxing on the serene, unspoiled beaches, nestled in the shade of towering trees along the Gulf of Thailand. Take leisurely strolls along the coastline, immersing yourself in the island's stunning natural beauty. Alternatively, embark on invigorating hikes through the untouched jungles of Phu Quoc National Park.

    As the sun sets, retire to your comfortable hotel for a peaceful night's rest, rejuvenated by your idyllic days on this island paradise.

    Your final day will depend on your flight schedule. You may fly to Ho Chi Minh City and then connect to your departure flight home.
