"Take in the jewels of beautiful, historically rich Vietnam in this highlights tour that features Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh and Phu Quoc."
Begin your trip with romantic Hanoi, characterised by a wealth of leafy parks and pretty French architecture. Then it's south the Ho Chi Minh with its vibrant mix of old and new, before ending up on the tranquil island of Phu Quoc.
Hanoi's European feel grants the capital a leisurely, laid-back atmosphere unheard of in the other Asian capitals. Spend long afternoons in the Old Quarter, where tree-lined streets lead to a sprawling lake. Ho Chi Minh takes on a different vibe, with charming traditional neighbourhoods shadowed by towering hotels and malls. Visit the Chu Chi tunnels, stooped in history and emotion following their use in the Vietnam War. Peaceful Phu Quoc is the perfect place to wind down, rich in natural beauty and abundant with curious wildlife.

Hanoi enjoys the typical weather experienced in Northern Vietnam, with a hot season from April through to October, and cooler winter weather from then on. The wet season mirrors the hot season, producing humid months with an average temperature of around 30°C. The weather is very changeable however, so don't be surprised to see temperatures, rainfall and sun hours vary from day to day. Generally the best time of year to visit is during April and May, with comfortable temperatures and still relatively low rainfall. The weather in Ho Chi Minh is split into just two seasons, and the city receives a tropical climate with hot, humid conditions all year round. The rainy season lasts from May to November, with showers tending to be short and sudden during this period. The dry season sees slightly cooler temperatures, but still maintains an average temperature of 28ºC. Typhoons are common between July and November, so it's advisable to avoid this period. Most people choose to visit during the dry season. Phu Quoc receives more rainfall than other parts of southern Vietnam, and its waters are less blue and choppy during the wet season of April through November. As a developing island, many of the roads are not fully built so exploring other beaches can get very muddy during the wet season so bear this in mind when planning your trip. The weather is at its best between December and March, and this is when most visitors arrive.
