A luxury holiday in Vietnam's got va va voom.
You could be cycling through French colonial Hanoi amid thousands of locals on bikes, or enjoying a peaceful cruise through the dramatic cliff scenery of Halong Bay. In South Vietnam, you'll find Vietnam's thronging capital, Saigon (now Ho Chi Minh City) and the Mekong Delta with its floating markets and some beautiful beach and island escapes, while a Central Vietnam holiday is a cultural, historical and visual feast, with the elegant cities of Hue and Hoi An leading the field.
Although having suffered a turbulent past, Vietnam is now flourishing. Luxury hotels, high end shops and five-star restaurants are springing up rapidly, while the breathtaking countryside shows little if any sign of past conflict. A holiday to Vietnam takes you past glistening paddy fields and powder white beaches, through spectacular knobbly mountains and along shimmering turquoise bays. For those with a flair for adventure, there are plenty of options for hiking and trekking here too.
And did we mention the food? Gourmet travellers on holiday in Vietnam are in for a treat. A heavy use of fresh vegetables and herbs make the cuisine not only delicious but healthy too. Fusing Chinese and French influence; soups, dumplings, baguettes and rice dishes are all favourites - don’t miss the night markets and floating markets for sampling some of these gourmet highlights.
