Witness extraordinary wonders on a Vietnam tour

Why a tour of Vietnam is the best way to experience this incredible country

Vietnam is an extraordinary place. To the north, dramatic mountains rise against the border with China, their majestic peaks overlooking both countries. To the south, the sun rises in a sub-tropical climate, spilling its warm rays onto perfect beaches and beautiful islands. And that's without counting the various river deltas, dense jungles and busy city centres on which the people of this land depend upon for their livelihoods.

Essentially, basing yourself in just one place in Vietnam is extremely limiting, showing you a mere single facet about this unique and wondrous world. Touring is a much more fulfilling way to witness everything it has to offer. That way, you get to experience the contrast between north Vietnam and south Vietnam, its beautiful islands and its lofty peaks. If you can never decide between sun worshipping, a city break or a hiking adventure, this multi-centre holiday is most definitely for you.

Start in the centre of a bustling city

Vietnam's metropolises are quite unlike anything you will have witnessed before. Balancing tradition and natural beauty precariously with modernisation and development, you'll often see temples rubbing shoulders with skyscrapers and tower blocks. It is this fascinating contrast that is sure to raise a smile to your face.

You might start by exploring the Cu Chi tunnels of Ho Chi Minh City (formerly Saigon), used by the Viet Cong in the Tet offensive during the war with the US, or by taking a stroll through the intimate triangle-shaped Old Town of Hanoi - a bustling and exciting shopping scene. Failing that, be completely in awe of Hue's Forbidden City, located in a picturesque spot near the Perfume River, or relax near the authentic Japanese bridge in Hoi An. And here we've just mentioned a single attraction from each city. Think of the experiences you'll be lucky enough to have, spending a couple of days in each thriving metropolis, as you would on a tour of Vietnam.

See areas of natural beauty

The country is also known for possessing some of the lushest areas of outstanding beauty in the world. In the depths of jungles, on the shores of islands and beneath the rushing torrents of the rivers, nature thrives. You'll see plants and creatures that you might have seen in zoos back in your native country, but here, they stride confidently around their natural habitats. Macaques, black bears and orangutans - all can be witnessed if you pick the right place and the right moment.

Uncover cultural attractions

Vietnam is blessed with a plethora of cultural attractions both natural and man-made, and since they are peppered across the country, a tour based in a variety of locations is the only way to see a substantial number of them. Start in the north, with the island paradise of Ha Long Bay, a vast expanse of water dotted with stunning natural rock formations that pierce the surface at regular intervals. Then travel south and end your stay on the island of Phu Quoc, surrounded by luxurious accommodation and endless beach.

And in between these two places, your tour might include a visit to the stunning Sa Pa rice terraces, located in the picturesque Muong Hoa valley. Or, perhaps the Tombs of the Emperors that can be found in the countryside surrounding Hue. Enjoy the busy atmosphere at a floating market in the Mekong delta or appreciate the beauty of the Thien Mu pagoda. There is no limit to what you might experience on a tour in Vietnam - you only have to imagine.
