Saigon, Luxury Travel Vietnam, Tour and Vacation


This amazing private Journey boasts a spectacular combination of culture, scenic beauty plus a little seaside ” R & R” to bring you a truly magical experience of Vietnam.

Your introduction to Vietnam begins with Ho Chi Minh City, forever known as Saigon and the “Paris of the East”. In recent years, Ho Chi Minh City has rapidly become one of Asia’s hottest spots, featuring Vietnam’s best cuisines, a bustling nightlife and accommodations.  Then, travel north to Nha Trang, offering some the best beaches Vietnam has to offer where you can relax and indulge in its spectacular seaside setting.

Next, a short flight from Saigon will take you to Danang and then on to Hoi An, one of Southeast Asia’s most important ports for many centuries. Today, Hoi An is unsurpassed for its charm and has blossomed into an artists’ colony. Home to numerous well-preserved ancient buildings and lifestyle reminiscent of Old Vietnam, Hoi An was honored as an UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1999.

We travel along the picturesque Hai Van pass onto Hue, an imperial city that was the cultural and intellectual center of Vietnam for centuries before continuing on to Hanoi, Vietnam’s capital, a city of lakes, shaded boulevards and public parks. With narrow alleyways lined with shop-houses selling traditional handicrafts and arts, the old center is an enchanting place to wander.  Finally, embark spectacular cruise around UNESCO Halong Bay while being soaking in its magnificent limestone cliffs and stunning sceneries all in the comfort of your exclusively charted wooden Junk.

Discover Vietnam on this extraordinary journey.  The experience will sure imprint in your heart precious memories that will last a lifetime.
