Visit Ba Dinh Square, where The Late President Ho Chi Minh declared Vietnams Independence on 02nd September 1945, Ho Chi Minh’s Mausoleum and continue to the One Pillar Pagoda, the must-see monument in Hanoi - It is an ancient Buddhist pagoda, built in the early 11th century in the reign of King Ly Thai Tong, all construction supported by only one pillar, resembling a Buddhist lotus. Tran Quoc Pagoda, Quan Thanh Temple. Visit Van Mieu - Quoc Tu Giam (Temple of Literature - The first Imperal school in Vietnam) built in 1070 during the dynasty of King Ly. Have lunch at local restaurant.

PM: This afternoon we drive to visit the Vietnam Ethnology Museum (close on every Monday), it is widely acknowledged as the best in the country and has an extensive display dedicated to Vietnam’s 54 Ethnic minority peoples. As well as the comprehensive array of exhibits inside, there are also traditional tribal houses reconstructed within the grounds. Visit a complex of the Hoan Kiem Lake, Ngoc Son Temple (Jade mountain Temple), But Tower (Pen - shaped tower), Dai Nghien (Ink Stand), the Red - painted wooden The Huc bridge….

Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch

DAY 03: HANOI - HALONG BAY
You can leave luggage behind at our Hanoi hotel and pack an overnight bag. It is a three-hour drive to Halong Bay, truly one of Vietnam's most impressive scenic sights. Views of sailing junks navigating past over 3000 limestone islands and rocky outcrops jutting out of the bay are nothing short of spectacular. We travel to Bai Chay (Halong City West) where we board a boat for an exploration of the bay, enjoying a seafood lunch and dinner (non-seafood also available), as well as spending a night on board. We visit one cave in the area and, in the warmer months, there is a chance to enjoy a swim. Conditions may be somewhat more communal compared to staying in a hotel, however it is a wonderful experience to be spending a night on the bay - weather permitting, the views at sunset are incredible. Bedding and towels are provided. Some boats have private facilities while on others, there are common showers - sometimes the water is hot and sometimes it’s not! There may also be the chance to do some kayaking (optional and extra cost involved) on Halong Bay. Accommodation on the Halong Bay cruise is on a twin share basis, due to the small number of rooms available on the boats. If you have paid a single supplement, please note that this does not cover the cruise, however, there is the possibility that you may still get your own cabin. Stay overnight on junk cruise.
Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch

DAY 04: HALONG BAY - HANOI
In the morning we sail back to the port, where we disembark and drive back to Hanoi. Arriving back in the capital, we have free time to wander around and enjoy some of the city’s other attractions. Perhaps afternoon tea at the Metropole Hotel or a stroll around the Hoan Kiem lake to mix with the locals socializing and exercising in the early evening. Overnight at hotel in Hanoi.
Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch

DAY 05: HANOI - HOI AN
A morning transfer to Noi Bai Airport for our flight from Hanoi to Da Nang. On arrival, we drive a short distance to East Sea Beach, enjoyed as an 'R & R' spot during the Vietnam War and a popular beach destination still today. It lies against a backdrop of the sensational Marble Mountains. The five peaks, which are actually limestone with marble outcrops, are also seen to epitomize the five elements: fire, water, earth, wood and metal. The history of the mountains is a rich one. They were once used by the Chams for religious purposes, but in more recent times became a haven for the Viet Cong, with its clear view of the Danang air base - at one time the busiest airport in the world. Good footwear is essential, as the path between the rocks are sometime slippery. Late afternoon, we will transfer to Hoi An where you will have some free time to soak up the laid back ambiance of this historical town. You may like to relax by the hotel swimming pool or to browse through some of the many tailor shops that have become a more recent feature of the town. Hoi An has over 100 silk shops offering express service for tailor-made clothes at unbelievably low prices. Overnight at hotel in Hoi An.
Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch

DAY 06: HOI AN
Hoi An was originally a Cham port town, but has been influenced down the centuries by a myriad of traders from various cultures. There is a distinctly Chinese appearance with pagodas and assembly halls scattered along the small streets. Hoi An was once a bustling port in centuries gone by, before the river silted up. Today it is a delightful backwater town with an air of liveliness about it. The tranquility and charm of Hoi An, coupled with its low tiled houses, makes it one of the most delightful places to visit in Vietnam. It is a constant favorite of our travelers and staff. A walking tour takes us to see a historic house (formerly home to a prominent trader), the Japanese Covered Bridge, a Chinese assembly hall and a museum. In the evening you can join an informal cooking class, where you can learn how to make some of Hoi An’s famous specialty dishes and even participate in rolling your own spring rolls. Overnight at hotel in Hoi An.
Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

DAY 07: HOI AN - MY SON SANCTUARY - HOI AN
Today there are no organized activities while we’re here in Hoi An because there’s such a broad choice of things to see and do and they are all easily discovered without difficulty. You may wish to rent a bicycle and set off to explore the surrounding countryside, take a boat trip on the river, relax on the nearby beach or enjoy the wonderful cuisine on offer at some of the town’s numerous cheap cafes. If you’d like to venture further a-field, it’s only a short trip up the road to Vietnam’s world famous ‘China Beach’ and the adjacent Marble Mountains. If you’d like to learn more about the Kingdom of Champa, the ancient ruins at My Son can be visited inside half a day. Here you can see more than 70 historic monuments spread over a large area. Overnight at hotel in Hoi An.
Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch

DAY 08: HOI AN - HO CHI MINH CITY - CU CHI TUNNELS
A morning transfer to Da Nang airport for our flight to Sai Gon. On arrival at Tan Son Nhat airport on the outskirts of Sai Gon, we head directly to Cu Chi, the name of the district that covers an extensive underground network (approximately 200 kilometers) of tunnels dug initially by the Viet Minh and later expanded by the Viet Cong. The tunnels contained hospitals, plus accommodation and schools, and were used extensively for refuge and storage and also utilized as a military base for the Viet Cong close to Sai Gon. The 1968 Tet Offensive was launched from Cu Chi with surprising effect. A section of the tunnels has been widened to allow tourists to get a feel for what the life underground must have been like. This afternoon we make our way to Sai Gon. Your hotel is located in District 1, in the center of the city. Sai Gon is renowned for its nightlife, ranging from international class restaurants to surprising bars and nightclubs. Overnight at hotel in Ho Chi Minh city.
Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch

DAY 09: HO CHI MINH CITY TOUR
Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City) is the largest city in Vietnam and the nation's economic capital. This morning a short city tour takes us to the Reunification Palace, War Remnants Museum and Notre Dame Cathedral, and allows us to admire the many beautiful French colonial buildings such as the main post office and the former Hotel de Ville (city hall). The remainder of the day is free for some last minute shopping at some of the many and varied shops you will find throughout the city. Overnight at hotel in Ho Chi Minh city.
Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch

DAY 10: HO CHI MINH - PHNOM PENH
This morning transfer to Tan Son Nhat Airport for the short flight to Phnom Penh. On arrival in the Cambodian capital you can’t help but notice the change of pace. Sisowath Quay is a good place to start your explorations of the city, as it runs next to the confluence of the 3 major rivers in Cambodia, the Bassac, Tonle Sap and the Mekong. Along the riverfront, you will find many interesting cafes, restaurants and shops, as well as catching a glimpse of some of the fine Cambodian architecture including the National Museum. You may like to visit the museum in your own time if you want to learn more about the history of the country and see some of the artifacts collected from Cambodia’s rich past. A relaxing drink at the Foreign Correspondents’ Club is a great way to start your evening, and a great place to observe the locals. Overnight at hotel in Phnom Penh.
Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch

DAY 11: PHNOM PENH CITY TOUR
A full city tour introduces you to the sights of Phnom Penh. The private quarters of the Royal Palace is home to King Sihamoni and is therefore closed to the public; however, we are able to visit the Silver Pagoda which lies in the palace complex, which is the most sacred temple in the country and was previously spared from destruction by the Khmer Rouge. Wat Phnom is the temple which gave rise to the foundation of the city in the 15th Century. The bloody rule of the Khmer Rouge is a painful, but unavoidable, part of Cambodia's recent history and visits to the Tuol Sleng Prison Museum and the Killing Fields of Choeung Ek tell the story of this tragic legacy. (Note: These sites are a major part of sightseeing in Phnom Penh; however, if you do not wish to visit either of them, please inform your tour leader.) An ideal way to spend your last evening in Cambodia is to relax in a cafe by the riverfront. Overnight at hotel in Phnom Penh.
Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch

DAY 12: PHNOM PENH - SIEM REAP
This morning transfer to the airport in Phnom Penh where you will farewell your Phnom Penh tour leader before taking the short flight to Siem Reap. Please note that there is currently a US$6 departure tax which you will have to pay at the airport. Upon arrival in Siem Reap, you are met by your new tour leader and transferred to our centrally located hotel. Here you may choose to enjoy a swim at the hotel pool, or to take a stroll through the quiet streets of Siem Reap town. Overnight at hotel in Siem Reap.
Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch
 
DAY 13: SIEM REAP - ANGKOR WAR TOUR
Siem Reap is our base for visiting the world-famous temples of the ancient city of Angkor, home to the powerful Khmer Empire that held sway from 802 AD to 1350 AD. We spend a full day visiting the amazing temples of Angkor on a guided tour. Angkor Thom, the 'Great Royal City', is famous for its series of colossal human faces carved in stone. The impressive Bayon temple is the centerpiece of all this. Angkor Wat is the largest and most complete structure. It is the only one of Angkor's temples with its entrance facing to the west (the others face east), the reason being that it was constructed as a funerary temple for King Suryavarman II and a westerly countenance was seen to represent a sunset. Ta Prohm temple is an incredible sight, with large trees embedding themselves in the stone foundations of the structure giving the impression of man's creation being reclaimed by the powerful forces of nature. We can end the day with a sunset view of Angkor Wat from Phnom Bakheng. Overnight at hotel in Siem Reap.
Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch

DAY 14: SIEM REAP
Our ticket for the Angkor ruins enables us to spend more time exploring this memorable archaeological area. It is an early morning start as we travel out to Banteay Srei, famous for its detailed and intricate stone carvings. It is not a big temple, but has been sometimes referred to as ‘the jewel in the crown of Angkorian art’. Back at the main temple complex, Preah Khan contains a maze of vaulted corridors and is another complex that has been largely reclaimed by the jungle. Overnight in Siem Reap.
Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch

DAY 15: SIEM REAP DEPARTURE
After breakfast at hotel, you are free at your leisure to relaxing before transfer to the airport for your departure flight to your home. End of services.
Meals included: Breakfast
