Day 04 : Hanoi

For most of its independent history, Vietnam has been ruled from the city of Hanoi. With a population of over 3 million, Hanoi is actually quite small and enjoys a reputation of being a laid-back, low-keyed city with lakes and shaded boulevards. Our first stop is at One Pillar Pagoda, constructed by the Emperor Ly Thai Tong and designed to resemble a lotus blossom. Continue on to the Temple of Literature, founded in 1070 to be dedicated to the famous Chinese scholar Confucius. Right in the heart of Hanoi, Hoan Kiem Lake contains an islet with the tiny Tortoise Pagoda topped with a red star. Schedule permitting, we also visit the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum and enjoy a view of the Opera House, a magnificent 900 seat opera house built in 1911. The afternoon is spent at leisure. If we desire, admission tickets (optional) to the Water Puppet Show are available.
DAILY MEAL (AB, L, D)

Day 05 : Hanoi

Journey away from the city by motorcoach to famous Halong Bay, recognized by UNESCO as a World Natural Heritage Area. Enjoy a boat ride exploring Halong Bay, passing the islands of Truong, Mai, Am, Chen and Cong Troi. It is impossible not to appreciate the exceptionally beautiful scenery and natural wonders of the area. We stop at one of the islands for a brief visit before returning back to Hanoi.

Saigon started its life as a small fishing village and was the capital of South Vietnam before the War. Its official name is Ho Chi Minh City, named after the founding father of modern day Vietnam. Our schedule this morning includes various scenic spots in Saigon and Cholon (Chinatown). Notre Dame Cathedral is set in the heart of Saigon's government quarter. It was built between 1877 and 1883 and constructed in the neo-Romanesque form. Next we visit Vietnam's largest post office, the Central Post Office; it is a French-style building with a glass canopy. Continue on to the hundred-year-old City Hall before visiting the War Remnants Museum. Here we view the collections of weapons and photographs from two Indochina wars. Finish off today's sightseeing by visiting Ben Thanh Market, Binh Tay Market, and the Thien Hau Pagoda. The afternoon is at leisure.
DAILY MEAL (AB, L)

Day 08 : Ho Chi Minh

Take an excursion to the famous Cu Chi Tunnels, an important base during the American War because of its strategic location. The Vietcong built an elaborate 200km long network of tunnels connecting command posts, hospitals, shelters and weapons factories. Dug of of hard laterite by hand tools without the use of cement, this amazing network of tunnels was never discovered by their enemies. The afternoon is free for us to explore Saigon at our own pace.
