Itinerary

Day 1

Following breakfast at the hotel, we say farewell to Ho Chi Minh City and head to the stunning land of Can Tho, where we'll ride along the Mekong canals and past local farmers who mostly grow dragon fruit.

Day 2

Catch the local fishermen and plantation farmers trade their catches and crops at the Cai Rang floating markets on the Hau River. From the market, we set out to discover the back alley paved roads by bike.

Day 3

This morning we fly north to Da Nang. Our bikes await for a ride through the countryside before we head to the exciting town of Hoi An, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Tonight, we'll taste Vietnam’s best fusion cuisine.

Day 4

Pedal past fish farms, water buffalo and ancestral tombs to a Vietnamese cooking class led by our local host. Tonight is yours to explore the culinary delights of Hoi An’s charming, lantern-lit streets.

Day 5

Stroll through Hoi An's morning market, taking in the sights and smells of the bustling street vendors. This afternoon, we'll lend a helping hand at a local herb and organic vegetable garden.

Day 6

We travel by car beneath the spectacular ‘Pass of the Clouds’—those who prefer to pedal over the mountain pass can take on the challenge. Enjoy downtime at our next hotel, and be sure not to miss the spa!

Day 7

We lunch aboard a private boat as we cruise down the Perfume River to the tomb of Minh Ming. This evening, our friends Mr. and Mrs. Vinh invite us over for a traditional homemade dinner.

Day 8

We will drive you either 20 minutes to the Hue Airport, or 2.5 hours to the Danang Airport for your departing flight. Safe travels!

If you've not taken a trip with Butterfield & Robinson as your guides, you must! My husband and I love to travel and are pretty resourceful at finding great hotels and restaurants on our own. However, we just completed our third trip with B&R and are always so impressed and awed at the quality of accommodations, education, and experiences we would not of had on our own.We can't wait and are already planning for the next trip!

Just returned from our first B&R trip, a walking tour to Machu Picchu. Our guides, Stephanie and Peter were outstanding. Each day we were surprised with amazing experiences, 5 star accommodations and exceptional food. Our expectations were far surpassed. It is hard to put into words the moment we entered the Sun Gate and first looked down on Machu Picchu. I will only say you will never forget that moment. Thank you, thank you B&R!!!

Butterfield and Robinson has changed our lives. The combination of hiking, or biking, or cruise/biking at a slowed-down pace, with the help of their excellent guides, in foreign locations, makes for a relaxed, pleasurable travel experience. We have now travelled ten times with them, and we plan to do more. Their electric bikes (optional) extend our opportunity to travel with them into happy old age. Terry Patrick

This was our first trip with B and R, but it will not be our last. Our Amalfi Coast walking trip was so amazing from start to finish. Our guides (Courtney and Lisa) took such great care to make all of us so comfortable and feel safe and secure. The food, the five star hotels, the sights, sounds, and surprises along the way will leave lasting memories and bring smiles to our faces when we think of our Italian adventure.

Accomodations

Azerai Hotel, Can Tho

Accessible only by boat, this stylish hotel is built on a verdant islet on the Hau River. The rooms were made using local materials, blending in seamlessly with the tropical setting. Facilities include an infinity pool, tennis courts, gym, and pilates studio as well as a yoga and meditation centre to keep you both entertained and zen during your stay.

Anantara Resort, Hoi An

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 ambiance. The luxurious spa treatments and breathtaking gardens are just the icing on the cake.

Pilgrimage Village, Hue

This luxurious retreat is located in the peaceful countryside, yet still just 4 km (2 mi) from the centre of Hué. You’ll come to appreciate this after learning that the Vietnamese love to make use of the horns on their mopeds early in the morning! The rooms reflect the Vietnamese taste for simple, elegant luxury.
