Vietnam

Charming and mesmerisingly beautiful from the far north, along its extensive beach-lined east coast to the south where the mighty Mekong flows to the sea.

Each city has its own charm: the elegant capital Hanoi combines Asian and French influences and a leisurely-paced lifestyle, coastal Hué straddles the delightfully-named Perfume River and is dotted with impressive pagodas and the ruins of a once-powerful moated citadel, Hoi An boasts well-preserved 17th and 18th century Vietnamese, Chinese and Japanese architecture and a vibrant café scene, while Ho Chi Minh City remains the vibrant cosmopolitan hub of the country. Let an A&K guide introduce you to this delightful country and its warm and friendly people. A&K has over 17 years experience in Vietnam. Finding and developing new, unique and creative itineraries and matching them to our guests is a speciality. Guides are hand-picked to suit each visitor and with their in-depth knowledge, pride and appreciation for their homeland allow travellers an insider’s view of Vietnam.

Get swept up in frenetic but charming Ho Chi Minh City. See the Cu Chi underground tunnels through the eyes of a veteran guide. Hunt for bargains in bustling markets and local galleries. Let us help you discover one of Hoi An’s exceptional tailors. Admire early French colonial architecture and see the last vestiges of the romantic Indochine era. Cruise on a luxury junk through the 3,000 rocky islands of Halong Bay. Visit a traditional water puppet village and see a performance. Savour French-influenced fare in Hanoi or take a calligraphy lesson in a Buddhist pagoda with a resident nun.

BEST TIME TO TRAVEL

January: Tet Festival, with massive week-long celebrations to usher in the New Year. September: Tet Trung Thu is a mid-autumn moon festival with coloured lanterns and delectable moon cakes. Monthly: Full Moon festival in Hoi An when the town is lit with lanterns and music and dance fills the air. Weatherwise: The best time to visit the north is between September and December when it is less humid, and December to April in the south to avoid the rains.
