The adventure of a lifetime to seven destinations across Vietnam, with highlights including a sleeper train to Sapa, a luxury junk-ship cruise at the secret end of Halong Bay and a five-star hideaway on the coast

Hanoi

Begin in the chaotic culinary destination of Hanoi, Vietnam's capital, where you’ll be staying at a five-star hotel near the Old Quarter. From your location in this history-steeped neighbourhood, head out to discover this intoxicating city on foot, being sure to spend time by the lake and at the notorious Hoa Lo Prison, the 'Hanoi Hilton'.

Distance from Noi Bai International airport: 30km

Lan Ha Bay

From Hanoi, head off on the greatest adventure of your trip. Set sail through beautiful Lan Ha Bay, a less-crowded alternative to neighbouring Halong Bay, spending one or two nights aboard a luxurious Amour Cruises ship. While on board, you can choose to explore Lan Ha Bay’s stunning limestone islands, mysterious caves and sparkling waters with activities like kayaking and swimming. On board, try your hand at fishing and watch a Vietnamese cooking demonstration.

Distance from Hanoi: 120km (round trip)

Victoria Express Train

You’ll travel to Sapa next - and by no ordinary means. Aboard the Victoria Express Train, journey overnight into the cooler climes of this mountainous region. From the comfort of your kitted-out cabin you can enjoy views of the passing green landscapes as the sun rises.

Distance to Sapa: 300km

Sapa

The emerald-green jewel of north-west Vietnam, Sapa is a wonderland of mist-shrouded valleys, undulating hills and staggered rice terraces. It’s paradise for hikers, with highlights including the Silver Waterfall, Ham Rong Mountain and the Moung Hoa Valley.

Distance from Lao Cai station: 35km

Hue

Moving on to the north-central coast, you’ll be within easy reach of the tombs, pagodas and palaces of historic Hue, although in an altogether more serene location. Surrounded by countryside, your five-star resort is a place to relax and focus on wellness, with some of Vietnam’s most important cultural highlights nearby, including the Imperial Citadel - a ‘forbidden city’ once shut to all but royalty.

Distance from Hue airport: 15km

Da Nang

Da Nang is not only a pulsating city - the third largest in Vietnam - but one of the country’s most upscale beach destinations, with miles of golden coastline peppered with cutting-edge modernist hotels. While beach activities are an obvious choice for an afternoon of sand and sea, there's plenty to lure you from your sun lounger too. A 10-minute drive will take you to the awe-inspiring Marble Mountains - an outcrop of five jagged limestone and marble hills. Inside lies a network of tunnels, caves and Buddhist temples. Make your way through Am Phu cave until you emerge at the mountain’s peak, surrounded by a spectacular panorama. A 20-minute ride on the resort's shuttle bus will take you to Hoi An, famed for its UNESCO-listed Ancient Town.

Distance from Hue: 110km

Ho Chi Minh City

Lastly, you'll travel to Ho Chi Minh City. From your central location, discover colonial landmarks like the 19th-century Central Post Office and the awe-inspiring Notre-Dame Cathedral, made entirely of materials imported from France. Delve into the country’s fascinating history, influences of which can be seen in the tantalising local food around every corner. And when you need a break from the buzz at street level, ascend to your hotel's rooftop pool - the swim-up bar is just the place to wind down on a balmy afternoon.

Distance from Tan Son Nhat International airport: 10km
