7D Vietnam (South & North ) (P/CLV/7/2)

Ho Chi Minh City or Saigon as it still known to many, is Vietnam's largest and most dynamic city. In 1862, the French declared the city, then known as Saigon, as the capital of colonial Cochin china. What hasn't changed in Ho Chi Minh City is commercial zeal. Not surprisingly, Ho Chi Minh City is a shopper's paradise, with trendy new boutiques and modern shopping centres just steps away from traditional open-air markets...

hanoi4' Hanoi is home to all the best of historic Vietnam. Let's discover traditional temples, monuments, and pockets of ancient culture along the narrow streets of the Old quarter. With a unique blend of oriental and western charm, the French colonial legacy is still evident illustrated by the distinctive yellow pastel colored villas and government buildings. The centre of Hanoi is by far the greenest and most beautiful city with elegant tree-lined boulevards and many lakes….

Halong-Bay-from-Titop-Mount-high

Ha Long Bay is located in the northeastern part of Vietnam. In a not very large area, thousands of islands with differentforms look like glittering emeralds attached to the blue scarf of a virgin. The area where many stone islands concentrate has spectacular scenes and world-famous caves is the center of Ha Long Bay Natural Heritage. They are the result of many times of rising and lowering processes of the continent to form a karst. The process of nearly full erosion and weathering of the karst created the unique Ha Long Bay in the world.
