Come, join us on this breathtaking escorted tour to “The Land of the Ascending Dragon”, Vietnam plus a fun weekend in Seoul for sightseeing and some of Asia’s best shopping. Accommodations in Vietnam, the 5-star Pan Pacific Hotel in Hanoi and the Rex Hotel Saigon in Ho Chi Minh City. In Seoul, we are at the 4-star Sejong Hotel, ideally located in the heart of Myeongdong.

With a population of 92.7 million, Vietnam ranks as the 9th most populated nation in Asia. It is a land of stunning natural beauty, dynamic megacities and hill-tribe villages, both exotic and fascinating.

Our tour begins in Hanoi, Vietnam’s capital city, where layers of history reveal periods of French and Chinese occupation. As we make our way south to Ho Chi Minh City, our travels get into the heart of Vietnam and many of its major attractions. There’s the landscape of the Red River Delta countryside as we visit UNESCO-listed Ha Long Bay, followed by an overnight 5-star all-inclusive cruise.

In central Vietnam, we will be visiting Hue, the seat of Nguyen Dynasty emperors and the national capital from 1802 to 1945. From here, Hoi An, graceful and historic, Vietnam’s most atmospheric and delightful town. And then, there is Da Nang, the country’s 5th largest city, located on the coast of the South China Sea, at the mouth of the Han River, one of Vietnam’s most important ports.

Our tour ends in Ho Chi Minh City, formally Saigon where you can see the major developments of Vietnam’s efforts to be a part of today’s world. While here, we will visit the Mekong Delta, the “rice bowl” of Vietnam. It is a vast maze of rivers, islands, and home to floating markets, Khmer pagodas and quaint riverside villages.

As we bid good-bye to Vietnam, it’s off to Seoul, South Korea’s bustling capital. It is a huge metropolis where modern skyscrapers, high-tech subways and pop culture meet Buddhist temples, palaces and street markets. Accommodations here, the 4-star Sejong Hotel, in the heart of Myeongdong, one of the most popular shopping districts.
