The simple memory of eating a bowl of Pho whilst watching the sunset in Halong Bay is one of my fondest from my time living in Vietnam. The wonderful warm people, incredible nature and fantastic food of Vietnam will always keep me coming back.

In the morning you can take a Tai Chi class if you feel like it and later on explore the surrounding villages and national park on bike.

Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City)

City

After another idyllic morning of Tai Chi, you’ll head back to the port where you’ll make your way to Saigon. This city is a melting pot of culture, history and great street food and you can spend your time here exploring at your own pace, or sign up for one of our optional excursions such as a night at the Opera House.

Places to Stay

9-11

Mui Ne

Beach

After the hustle and bustle of city life you’ve definitely earned a few days recouping on Mui Ne's beach. And what a beach! A 12 kilometre sweeping bay boasting fantastic water sport options, Mui Ne is famed for its vast – and extremely photogenic – red sand dunes (doi hong), whipped up by the high winds rushing to and from the ocean. Further along the coast are the even more impressive white dunes (di cat trang), which can be explored by jeep. Visit at sunrise for that picture postcard shot.

Places to Stay

12-13

Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City)

City

You’ll head back into the city of Saigon for one more night. It’s up to you how you spend it – perhaps sampling street food at the local market, catching a show at the Opera House or simply wandering the streets and soaking up the electric atmosphere of this great city.

 On Day 13 you’ll head home chilled out with plenty of wonderful Vietnamese memories.
