An intoxicating mix of nature, food and history

What to do in Vietnam

Introduction

Vietnam is an extraordinary holiday destination known for its rich history, delicious food and welcoming people, eager to share the best of their homeland. If you have the time, an in-depth exploration from north to south is the best way to enjoy the highlights.

Of course, you can break it down by experience, tailoring your holiday to the things you'd like to do. If it's food and wine you're seeking, there's everything from fine dining to world-class street food to sample, defined by traditional Vietnamese flavours of ginger, lime and spices. Everything in Vietnam, including the food, has been touched by the nation’s multicultural colonial history, which you can explore on an escorted tour of the nation's most prominent landmarks. Or, for a really close-up view of everyday life, take a luxury river cruise along the Mekong, or a junk cruise around Halong Bay. You'll see locals selling goods from floating markets, working in the rice paddies and weaving silk lanterns – it's a window into rural life in Vietnam.

From history and culture holidays to in-depth escorted tours, browse our holiday types below. For help from our specialists, who have travelled extensively in the region, simply get in touch.
