With its long history, interesting culture, and gorgeous scenery, Vietnam offers something for everyone. On this Vietnam tour, you’ll overnight in Hanoi, Ha Long Bay, Phong Nha National Park, Hoi An, Hue, and Ho Chi Minh City. Sightseeing tours in the cities feature the must-see historic sites, including Hanoi’s Temple of Literature, built in 1070, and One Pillar Pagoda, built in 1049; Hoi An’s Japanese Covered Bridge; Hue’s Forbidden Purple City, the emperor’s residence constructed in 1804; and Hoi An’s Thien Mu Pagoda. In Ho Chi Minh City, your sightseeing includes the War Remnants Museum and the Cu Chi region, where you'll have a chance to enter and explore the deep, narrow tunnels constructed by the Viet Cong during the war.

Vietnam isn’t just home to beautiful temples and historic sites though! You'll enjoy seeing some of Vietnam's most gorgeous sights and destinations via the water. Perhaps the highlight of the trip is your cruise on Ha Long Bay, a UNESCO World Heritage Site with some of the world's most amazing limestone scenery. You'll sail by islets, caves, beaches, and floating villages. In Phong Nha National Park, a boat ride on the Son River takes you to Phong Nha Cave. You'll also enjoy a cruise in Hoi An on the Thu Bon River, where you'll pass unspoiled countryside.

These are just some of the many highlights on this tour through Vietnam. From the historic sites to the gorgeous scenery, this Vietnam tour designed for savvy, value-minded travelers is a vacation of a lifetime!
