Notice

What is the Hoi An Full Moon Festival?
For the Vietnamese people, the full moon festival is a time to pay tribute to one’s ancestors with offerings of fruit, flowers and burning incense (or fake money!) at alters. Monks will hold candlelit ceremonies in the temples. In Hoi An, these traditions have evolved into the Hoi An Lantern Festival as it is today.  During the evening of the event itself, all of the electric lights in the Hoi An old town are turned off, and the rivers and street take on a magical aura as thousands of Vietnamese lanterns and candles twinkle and flicker through the darkness. There is no cost to visit the Hoi An moon lantern festival itself. You only need to wander down to the riverfront during the evening. Most of the action takes place around the Japanese Bridge or the bridge that connect An Hoi island to Hoi An ancient city. The ceremonies that take place in the various pagodas are also free to visit. As you wander along the riverfront, you will see literally hundreds of old grannies and young girls plying their trade in moon festival lanterns. One moon lantern only costs around $1-$2 if you end up convinced that releasing one of these lanterns into the river will bring you happiness, luck and prosperity.

After breakfast we take the 1.5 hour journey from the hotel in Hoi An to Ba Na Hills.

We will spend the day visiting this mountainous theme park perched 1,500m high on a mountain, a hill resort inherited from the French. The site was first developed by the French in the 1920s, who escaped the summer heat for its cool, mountain air.

This day trip offers scenic sights popular among the locals and a healthy dose of much needed mountain air. First we head to the Ba Na Hills cable car station and ascend one of the world’s longest and highest cable car rides with breathtaking panoramic views of the surrounding mountains.

Hoi An - Danang - Hue (B)

Stop en route at the Cham Museum, which contains the finest collection of Cham sculpture in the world.

In 1687 the Viets made Hue their capital, and continued their expansion into Cham territory. It remained the capital under the Nguyen dynasty, which had thirteen emperors, the last of whom ruled until 1945. Hue is still the intellectual capital of Vietnam with 12 schools of higher learning.  It maintained its cultural identity while other cities were accumulating foreign influences. The Nguyen dynasty left an Imperial city of citadels, palaces, tombs and temples set in the peaceful countryside bordering the Perfume River. Hue today has regained its royal demeanor and is a calm, peaceful and relaxed place to visit. The remaining French colonial garden houses and villas, quiet streets, riverbanks, and outlying tombs and pagodas that escaped damage - all give Hue a unique atmosphere of tranquillity.

Upon arrival in Hue, transfer to our hotel to check in. 

The remainder of the day will be free at leisure, including dinner.

Overnight at The Eldora Hotel (or similar)

Day 11 - Wednesday 25 August 2021

Hue (B)

Today after breakfast we'll take a tour through historic Hue. With hundreds of years of history, it would be impossible to see everything in a day but this tour gives a fabulous overview of the city’s culture and history.

We kick off this half-day tour with a visit to the UNESCO-Heritage Imperial Citadel. Roam the expansive grounds, admiring buildings that reflect the pomp and ceremony of the once-mighty Nguyen Dynasty. We'll hear the stories of the majestic buildings and intriguing former emperors. We continue to areas damaged by conflicts, both ancient and modern, and learn of Hue’s role in Vietnam’s military history.

Later, we continue by cyclo to get a closer look at the tranquil gardens and traditional buildings of the areas. Then we'll leave the city centre and travel through Hue’s beautiful countryside, arriving at Khai Dinh’s tomb for a stroll. One of the Nguyen Dynasty’s former emperors, this remarkable complex blends traditional Vietnamese design with European touches making it unique from the other tombs in Hue.

Before heading back to our hotel, we have time to browse through the stalls at Dong Ba Market. The market is teeming with colour and a great place to catch a glimpse of everyday life in modern Hue. 

Free leisure time for the rest of the day.

Overnight at The Eldora Hotel (or similar)

Day 12 - Thursday 26 August 2021

Hue (B)

Today we will experience Hue's innovative art of Bamboo. Bamboo is engraved in Vietnamese culture and daily life, providing protection and representing resiliency. In the countryside, bamboo is used for everything- from daily used items to musical instruments to ornaments.

We drive north of the Citadel to visit a lesser-known village Bao La where locals still keep the traditional craft of bamboo that has been passed down generations. For those who seek to understand the heart of the Vietnamese communities, Bao La Village is a good example. Regarded for their basketry weaving, the people of Bao La understand this craft well. Under the harmonious leadership of the forefather of the village, each hamlet of the village specialises in one kind of basket weaving to prevent unnecessary strife and competition and to encourage a cooperative spirit throughout. We'll hear their stories about how they adapt the traditions to today's modern life.

Then we head to a workshop in the city and meet with an artisan who has integrated bamboo with traditional handicrafts to create revolution new art in Vietnam, called Truc Chi art. Truc means bamboo and Chi means paper. Learn how the artisans use Truc Chi to create handicraft items with the cultural characteristics of Hue and we get hands on creating a handicraft under their guidance. At the end of our tour we'll be transferred back to our hotel.

The rest of the day is at leisure, including dinner.

Hue - Ho Chi Minh (B)

After breakfast at the hotel and check out we transfer to the airport for our onward flight to Ho Chi Minh.

Upon arrival in Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC), we will be greeted by our local guide and transfered to our hotel.

Situated on the banks of the Saigon River and still commonly referred to as Saigon, Ho Chi Minh City is Vietnam’s largest metropolis and undisputed commercial capital. A seemingly chaotic whirl of motorbikes flows through the busy city streets, above which soar glistening skyscrapers and lavish hotels, while style-conscious locals flock to the city’s newest restaurants, designer malls and chic nightspots. Yet the spirit of the old city lives on in its colonial architecture, ancient pagodas, bustling markets and ubiquitous street food stalls. This is modern Vietnam at its most vibrant.

This afternoon, our guide will take us on a half day tour of Ho Chi Minh City. We start with a visit to the city’s most iconic building: Reunification Hall. Formerly called the Presidential Palace, images of the building were seen around the world on 30 April 1975 when tanks stormed the gates as Saigon fell to the North Vietnamese. Hear the echoes of time while walking through this historic downtown site.

Then we take a stroll to Ho Chi Minh City’s colonial quarter, walking past scenes of everyday life on the way.

Day 14 - Saturday 28 August 2021

Ho Chi Minh - Mekong Delta - Cu Chi Tunnels (B,D)

We depart early this morning to avoid the crowds at Cu Chi. Drive away from Ho Chi Minh City, watching the city skyline fade into the distance as the road winds through rice paddies, villages and other scenes typical to southern Vietnam. We'll spend a couple of hours walking around Cu Chi’s rugged grounds with a local guide. Hear how the residents constructed an intricate, underground network of tunnels during the French and American Wars. Crawl underground and have a look at the tiny chambers, imagining what life was like for those who lived there. Hear incredible tales of perseverance from the unusual foods the residents ate to survive to the story of a baby being born in the tunnels. Once above ground, see other ingenious items used by the residents to defend themselves such as bamboo traps and camouflaged pits. Throughout the tour, the guide will explain the impact of war on the local community and the country as a whole. Following this insightful visit, journey back to Ho Chi Minh City.

Afternoon is free at leisure. 

Tonight upon dark we’ll enjoy an “After Dark Tour” of Saigon by Vespa to see all that the nightlife has to offer.

Day 15 - Sunday 29 August 2021

Ho Chi Minh - Mekong Delta - Cai Be (B, L)

Today we leave behind the busy streets of Ho Chi Minh City and drive deep into the Mekong Delta on this Cai Be day tour. Upon arriving in Cai Be we board a private boat and start exploring the Delta.

Pass by trading boats laden with fresh produce while cruising past river islands, coconut groves, and fish farms. Go ashore at small family-run workshops making local specialties such as rice popcorn and coconut candy. After this introduction to the Mekong Delta, we'll get a closer look at the lives of its residents. Take a short walk through a local village and flourishing fruit gardens. Arrive at the home of Mr. Kiet and his family. The house has been lived in by more than four generations and is a great example of traditional ‘Mandarin’ architecture. A delicious home-cooked Vietnamese meal will be served for lunch in the family’s house.

Then we take a walk through their fruit orchard to see the fresh seasonal fruits on the trees. Say farewell to the host family and continue to Tan Phong Island. We take a local row boat through the narrow canals around the island, appreciating the tranquility and lush landscapes of this part of the Delta.

As the sun begins to dip lower in the sky it is time to return to Cai Be and onwards to Ho Chi Minh City.

Overnight at Victoria Angkor Resort (or similar)

Day 17 - Tuesday 31 August 2021

Siem Reap - Angkor Temples (B)

Today we will visit the most spectacular temples at the ancient city of Angkor Thom, the last capital of the Great Khmer Empire under the reign of Jayavarman VII. This city is surrounded by an 8 m high wall, drawing a perfect square. Enter the city through the ancient South Gate, an impressive stone gate carved with Elephants and four giant faces. On each side of the entrance path a row of 54 gods or demons is holding the sacred Naga snake.

From here, continue to Bayon Temple in the exact center of the city. This 12th century masterpiece is a study in grandeur and is well-known for its 54 towers with enigmatic faces representing the 54 provinces of the Great Khmer Empire. The Terrace of the Elephants and the Terrace of the Leper King are also must-visits as they are both known for their intricate bas-reliefs.

Take a break for lunch (at own expense), before we continue to Ta Prohm. Ta Prohm is unique in that it has been left largely as it was found: overgrown by jungle trees and vines, with many parts of the temple crumbling to the ground. This makes the ‘Tomb Raider Temple’ one of the most picturesque and memorable of the Angkor temples.

Now we are ready for the highlight: The magnificent Angkor Wat. Built during the reign of King Suryavarman II in the early 12th century, Angkor Wat is constructed following the model of the temple mountain symbolizing Mount Meru, the home of the gods. Inside the temple, the walls are covered with stone carvings and bas-reliefs depicting Hindu mythology and the wars Suryavarman II fought during his reign. Angkor Wat is well known for the more than 2,000 Apsara dancers decorating the temple. Construction is thought to have taken around thirty years of intensive labor. Today, Angkor Wat is figured on Cambodia's national flag as the temple symbolizes the soul of the Khmer people.

We will be there during the sunset, when Angkor Wat is less busy and the Apsaras will shine in the most beautiful light - a sight to behold.

Dinner at leisure tonight.

Overnight Victoria Angkor (or similar)

Day 18 - Wednesday 1 September 2021

Siem Reap (B,D)

This morning we'll visit Kampong Phluck, a village where you will see houses on stilts that are submerged when Tonlé Sap Lake extends.

The Tonle Sap Lake is the largest freshwater lake in Southeast Asia and officially designated as a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, covering an area of around 250,000 hectares in the dry season. Due to a unique phenomenon, when the monsoon begins, the swollen waters of the Mekong River force the Tonle Sap River to reverse its flow northwards, feeding the Great Lake and spreading over the surrounding flood plain.

Embark on an interesting boat trip on the Tonlé Sap Lake, where we will have the opportunity to learn about life on the lake. We will pass floating houses and impressive flooded forests, portraying life on the water. Tonle Sap is South East Asia’s largest freshwater lake with its size varying greatly depending on the season.

Note: Some months the water level can be too low for a visit by boat. However the village is still fascinating and can be visited by car. Quite dramatic to see how the stilted houses are exposed from lake when water levels are low!

This evening we will enjoy a farewell dinner at a local restaurant.

Overnight Victoria Angkor (or similar)

Day 19 - Thursday 2 September 2021
