Although Marlon Brando left his jungle citadel decades ago, Vietnam is still a pretty cool place – in fact, it’s probably even cooler.
If you haven’t travelled in Vietnam, you haven’t lived. This country is mesmerizing, intoxicating, mind-expanding and super fun. In Ho Chi Minh City, one of the highlights is the traffic. We kid you not.
Find a safe spot on a roof terrace and be hypnotized by the noisy ballet of motorbikes below. You can stay with local friends in the Mekong, cruise around stunning islands in Nha Trang and Halong Bay, get a new wardrobe in Hoi An and explore Hanoi’s art scene while munching on a baguette.
Vietnam is the kind of place you’ll leave relaxed, amazed, cuisinely satisfied, well-dressed and with a thousand tales to tell. Maybe more.
What people say
Vietnam and Cambodia -you won't be disappointed. Culture, history, great nights out all rolled into one. The people are humble and overall very friendly. There was not a second of the trip that I didn't enjoy, even the train journeys, as it was all part of the experience. The tour guide will ensure for the extrovert and the introvert that you will have a holiday of a lifetime.
Vietnam travel highlights
Scoff a seafood lunch as you cruise through Halong Bay
Halong Bay’s coves, caves and limestone pillars have been formed by centuries of erosion. Yeah, science can be pretty damn cool sometimes
Have a sleepover with a local family in the Mekong
Who has a lovely bunch of coconuts? The Mekong River does! Cruise the tropical waterways and enjoy a cosy homestay
Visit the Forbidden Purple City in Hue
This imperial site is largely overgrown with jungle, but you can still see gaping holes left by bombs during the war

Vietnam Highlights, January 2016
Being time overseas and travelling solo i feel the Vietnam Highlights tour is an excellent starter as we had loads of freedom whilst also being in a group atmosphere. the tour really makes you feel like more of a local by the end of it, like drinking the local rice wine. would recommend that 100% when in vietnam :P
