Vietnam tailor-made holidays

The largest of the three countries of the Indochina Peninsula, Vietnam wraps around the eastern coast, stretching and bending from north to south as if struggling to contain its great wealth of attractions. Consequently, the country boasts a wealth of reasons to visit and Vietnam holidays are ideal for a tailor-made trip.

Get to grips with this extraordinary, historic destination. From the limestone peaks of Halong Bay, the French boulevards of the capital Hanoi and the thick forests of the north-west, to the charming tea shops of cultural Hoi An, the glorious beaches of Nha Trang and Phu Quoc, and the floating markets of the mighty Mekong River, you'll find cultural diversity and natural wonders around each and every corner.

Having thrown off the shackles of a turbulent 20th century, the country and its people are now looking to the future with eager anticipation, with Ho Chi Minh City, formerly Saigon, perhaps the best example of a rapidly modernising city. Smell the aroma of freshly baked baguettes wafting from a Hoi An street stall, or relax on the beaches of the country's fabled coast - you're sure to fall in love with the country on a customised Vietnam itinerary.
