Hanoi — 8 nights

The capital of Vietnam, Hanoi has bounded back from the effects of war, and today serves as a bustling commercial and cultural hub bursting at the seams.

Spend the 13th (Sun) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. There's lots more to do: appreciate the extensive heritage of Old Quarter, indulge in some personalized pampering at some of the best spas, see Off-Road Tours, and steep yourself in history at Hoa Lo Prison.

Ho Chi Minh City — 8 nights

Pearl of the Far East

Formerly known in the West as Saigon and affectionately referred to as the "Pearl of the Far East," Ho Chi Minh City is a study of old and new, woven and piled together in a fast-paced urban hub.
