Many people think of Vietnam and Southeast Asia as backpacking destinations, but what if you’re looking for a trip with a few more creature comforts? Here are some options for Vietnam luxury tours for travellers who want the best of all worlds.
Cities and urban centres
Vietnam’s cities offer a great deal to luxury travellers in Vietnam. In particular, Ho Chi Minh City – formerly known as Saigon – has become well-known for its high-end boutiques, luxury hotels and exciting food scene. After visiting the art galleries, museums and underground Cu Chi tunnels the city is known for, explore Ho Chi Minh City’s high-end food and bar scene, ranging from Eon51 Fine Dining and San Fou Lou in the AB Tower, to La Villa And Bamboo Chic at Le Meridien.
Hanoi in the north is a less bustling city that is full of culture. Explore wide boulevards, picturesque winding streets and pristine temples, and indulge in café culture and the city’s proud coffee heritage.
Beaches and the coast
Vietnam luxury tours are not complete without a visit to Halong Bay – a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The postcard perfect views of emerald waters and thousands of mystical limestone karsts emerging from the water are like nowhere else in the world. The traditional way to experience Halong Bay is by staying on a cruise ship for a few days, with plenty of luxury options available for those seeking a high-end experience. You’ll cruise around the bay, stop to swim and discover island beaches, eat freshly prepared cuisine prepared by talented on-board chefs, and practice yoga on the deck at sunrise.
Other beaches along Vietnam’s massive coastline offer luxury experiences too, such as in Nha Trang and Da Nang. Visit Vietnam’s Phu Quoc Island for yet more blissful beaches and an island atmosphere.
Discovering new cultures
Sometimes the definition of luxury is having the rare opportunity to experience something totally new. There are plenty of opportunities for once-in-a-lifetime experiences in Vietnam. Enjoy a homestay with a local family from an ethnic tribe in the mountains to immerse yourself in a new culture.
How often do you have the opportunity to do that in life? Visit silk farms and go to skilled tailors to have clothing hand-crafted just for you. Or visit a water market in the Mekong Delta – where all market stalls and traders do business while floating on boats. This is an opportunity to truly immerse yourself in the sights, sounds and communities of Vietnam.
