Highlights
  • Explore the Hanoi city by cycling
  • Cruise up the Perfume River to the tomb of Minh Mang
  • Visit the Citadel and the Forbidden City
  • Fly to Nha Trang and cross the Cai River, past temples, on our way back to the stunning coast
  • Take a private speedboat along the Saigon River and explore the Cu Chi Tunnels

From north to south, Vietnam’s a contrast of distinctly local cultures, and our local guides make sure you don’t miss a beat. In the Hoi An market, exploding with more produce than the mind can process, we wade into the crowds to barter and buy. On the backstreets near the Citadel, we bike with trusted friends. Then, in a private home, we sit down to dinner with royal descendants. And at the Six Senses Hideaway (luxury resort), our every whim is catered to with a smile.

Itinerary

Day 1:

Having explored Hanoi by cyclo, we head south for our first ride on the outskirts of Hue, pausing by the Japanese Bridge to have your fortune told.

Day 2:

Board our private riverboat and cruise up the Perfume River to the tomb of Minh Mang. Dine tonight with Royal descendants in a wonderfully intimate setting.

Day 3:

Having visited the Citadel and the Forbidden City, we make our way to Da Nang, cycling past rice paddies and war memorials.

Day 4:

Pedal past local vegetable gardens and fish farms on the outskirts of Hoi An. Browse the markets of this UNESCO recognized town and pick up your new tailor-made clothes!

Day 5:

Fly to Nha Trang and cross the Cai River, past temples, on our way back to the stunning coast. Sip champagne from the privacy of your boat-access-only beach villa as you take in an unforgettable sunset.

Day 6:

Indulge in luxury at the Six Senses Spa (this is a vacation, remember). Take up the offer of a more challenging coastal ride before returning to the hotel for some beach time.

Day 7:

Enjoy lunch today with a local friend of ours in rural Nha Trang, before heading on to the glitz that is Saigon. Dine out this evening in the city that never sleeps.

Day 8:

Take a private speedboat along the Saigon River and explore the Cu Chi Tunnels, a visible reminder of the war. Embark on a stunning ride before heading back for cocktails and a final night party.

Day 9:

Enjoy a farewell breakfast at the hotel and tam biêt in Ho Chi Minh City.

Accomodations

The Pilgrimage Village, Hue

The luxurious and relaxing Pilgrimage Village is located in the peaceful countryside just 4 km (2 mi.) from the centre of Hué. You’ll come to appreciate this after learning that the only thing the Vietnamese love more than waking up early is honking the horns on their mopeds! The rooms are simple but comfortable, personal, and stylish, and guests will find every need is cared for.

Anantara Hoi An Resort, Quang Nam Province

Located along the scenic Thu Bon River, Anantara Hoi An Resort is only a short stroll from the colourful and bustling Ancient Town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Touches of French, Dutch, Chinese and Japanese cultures make up the distinct ambience and atmosphere in the resort and guests are offered luxurious spa treatments and breathtaking tropical gardens.

Six Senses Hideaway, Ninh Van Bay

This remarkable boutique hotel has undoubtedly raised the standard of luxury resorts throughout the country. Accessible only by water, the hotel’s 58 private villas, each with a private plunge pool, sit on dramatic Ninh Van Bay, with its impressive rock formations overlooking the impressive East Vietnam Sea, pristine white sand beach and towering mountains behind.

Park Hyatt Saigon, Ho Chi Minh City

The luxurious new Park Hyatt Saigon is conveniently located at Lam Son Square near the elegant Opera House in bustling central Ho Chi Minh City. The Hyatt’s luxurious Xuan Spa offers a large outdoor swimming pool nestled in a beautifully landscaped tropical garden, relaxing and therapeutic massages with seven private treatment rooms and a well-equipped fitness studio.
