What’s it all about: A Country that confronts all your senses from the moment you arrive. Once you are away from the busy cities it’s like time has stood still as people go about their traditional daily life.
Unforgettable highlight(s): A Sunrise Tai Chi class on the Top Deck of a traditional Junk cruising through the spectacular Limestone Islands of Halong Bay. A very spiritual experience!
Insider tip(s): Take something that you love to wear and have it copied by the very clever & fast working Tailors. Have it made in two different fabrics and every-time you wear it you will remember your wonderful holiday.
Suits a traveller who: Adventurous & open-minded.
Travel essentials: All the usual travel essentials but don’t forget your smile. Vietnamese are friendly but can be a little shy with foreigners. A smile breaks down barriers!
Be aware: Vietnamese Currency is worthless outside of the country so make sure you spend all of it there! Travelling with a Guide either privately or on an Escorted Tour is invaluable not only with learning about the Culture and History but outside of the main cities English is not widely spoken.
