Discover the culture and everyday treasures of a rising phoenix

Vietnam is one of the world’s most exotic and culturally rich destinations. A gem among gems, it offers dazzling diversity for visitors. Yet what most find so fascinating is its capacity for change. This is nowhere more evident than in Ho Chi Minh City. Set on the Saigon river, the capital is the perfect example of progress and tradition living side-by-side. Grand colonial buildings stand alongside modern skyscrapers while Japanese cars share the busy roads with cycle rickshaws.

We won’t just take you to the key sights, but also reveal the hidden stories that explain what makes Vietnam what it is today, and where it’s going.

A two day tour of the Mekong delta (Vietnamese: Đồng bằng Sông Cửu Long "Nine Dragon river delta") will immerse you in a water-world maze where everything happens on the boats - even local markets which form every day from a raft of vendors boats. We’ll continue to the coastal town of Vung Tau in the Phuong district to relax and swim like the locals do.

While there we’ll visit the storied White Palace, the historical old colonial villa of the french governor.

Along the way, you’ll eat some of the finest food you’ve ever eaten, and we might even teach you to cook it too.
