Day 2: Hanoi Depart Hanoi and travel to Halong Bay, one of the great natural treasures of Vietnam. Board your feature stay accommodation for the evening, a gloriously beautiful and traditionally decorated junk-style boat featuring modern conveniences. Set sail in total comfort as unforgettable views of scattered islands and towering limestone outcrops slowly unfold in front of you. Explore the bay while enjoying a first-class seafood lunch onboard. Learn about the fascinating geography of the region and its importance to the Vietnamese people, visit Surprise Cave where your leader will point out interesting rock formations, and in the warmer months you can choose a swim from Ti Top Island Beach or take an optional kayaking tour. Sit back with a drink on the upper deck and face out to the spirit-lifting view that will be stamped on your memory of Vietnam. Soak in the stunning surroundings with a candlelit seafood dinner on deck before settling in for a night of stargazing and swapping stories. Accommodation: Halong Bay Boat (feature stay) (1 night) Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner Included Activities:  Halong Bay - Overnight Boat Cruise 


Adventurous spirit? Explore Vietnam’s Son Doong Cave, the world’s largest cave which has its own river, jungle and microclimate. Journey over the Golden Bridge nestled in the hills of Danang which is held up by enormous, god-like hands, or marvel at the height of the Elephant Falls in La Dat, surrounded by lush green bush.

History buff? Visit the War Remnants Museum in Ho Chi Minh City for a compelling (and at times confronting) exploration of the nearly 20-year Vietnam War.

Foodie fanatic? Enjoy slow-cooked beef Pho in the busy bike-filled streets of Hanoi and wash it down with a 40c glass of Bia hơi beer. Street food cuisine will intrigue and surprise you, traditional Vietnamese fare is full of earthy flavours, fresh tastes and textures that vary throughout the country by region and is worth indulging.
