We know that it's just as fun exploring Vietnam in an independent way, which is why we've created this 10-day tour that includes some of the country's recommended highlights and all travel between Hanoi and Saigon, whilst leaving you with enough free time to immerse yourselves in each city along the way at your own leisure. With a combination of sight-seeing monuments, museums, and temples, and the turquoise waters of Halong and Bai Tu Long Bay, you'll find more than enough to do in each destination, so the only question that remains, is what do you feel like doing on the day?
