The problem with Vietnam holidays is knowing what to see and do, as this country has it all. Whether you want dynamic cities, sleepy hill stations, floating markets, trekking in hill tribe country, train travel, boat trips or beaches, anything is possible in Vietnam.

The traditional still outweighs the modern in Vietnam and in Ho Chi Minh City the sparkling high rises have clusters of tiny shops, temples and colonial architecture at their feet. Hanoi, a city of lakes boasts the fascinating Old Quarter, with its impossibly narrow tube houses and street vendors hawking their wares.

Regent Recommends

Board a traditional junk boat and cruise through the stunning limestone peak-scattered waters of Vietnanm's iconic Halong Bay. Take the pluinge into the inviting water and discover hidden caves packed with stalactites and stalagmites before spending the night onboard.

Admire the skills of the Mekong Delta boatmen as they navigate through hundreds of small boats nipping around. Contrast this with the tranquillity of Halong Bay as you serenely sail through thousands of atmospheric limestone islets.

On one of our Vietnam holidays gain an insight into the imperial past in Hue with the royal palace and mausoleums and indulge yourself in the narrow traffic-free streets of Hoi An crammed with shops and tailors.

Hike into rice-terraced valleys around Sapa where life continues unchanged for the colourful hill tribes, join the Reunification Express train, admire the faded French villas in Dalat, clamber through the narrow tunnels at Cu Chi and chill out on the unspoilt tropical coastline.

Don't miss Saigon

Experience the hustle and bustle of Vietnam's largest metropolis Ho Chi Minh City, formerly known as Saigon. A visit to the Cu Chi tunnels might not be a claustrophobe's idea of fun but they provide an intriguing insight into guerilla warfare during the Vietnam War. In the evening, head out to explore the Ben Thanh Night Market - during the day this is contained within the main market building but at night it spills out into the streets around it. Enjoy a spot of shopping followed by a beer and a steaming bowl of noodles.
