Overview

Astonishingly exotic and utterly compelling, Vietnam is a country of breath-taking natural beauty with a unique heritage, where travel quickly becomes addictive. Hanoi is approx 8 hrs flight from Delhi. Unforgettable experiences are everywhere in Vietnam. There’s - The sublime: gazing over a surreal seascape of limestone islands from the deck of a traditional junk in Halong Bay, The ridiculous: taking 10 minutes just to cross the street through a tsunami of motorbikes in Hanoi, The inspirational: exploring the world’s most spectacular cave systems in Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park, The comical: watching a moped loaded with honking pigs weave a wobbly route along a country lane, and the contemplative: witnessing a solitary grave in a cemetery of thousands of war victims. Come and experience Vietnam with our “Highlights of Vietnam” package.
