  1. Day 1: Hanoi Arrival.
    Day 1: Hanoi Arrival.

    Welcome to Hanoi: Vietnam’s bustling colonial capital. Your driver and guide will meet you outside the baggage claim of Noi Bai Airport and take you to your hotel in the city center. In the afternoon enjoy a cyclo tour through the Old Quarter’s narrow streets lined with French colonial buildings – followed by a traditional Water Puppet Performance – a unique Vietnamese art form hailing from Southeast Asia’s wet-rice culture. Savor a welcome dinner at one of Hanoi’s finest restaurants.

    Day 2: Hanoi City Tour.

    Today you have a full day to explore Vietnam’s charming capital; with its wide tree-lined boulevards, French colonial architecture, peaceful lakes and ancient oriental pagodas. Hanoi is an eclectic mix that offers something for everyone. Your city tour will take you to Hanoi’s key sites: the Ho Chi Minh Complex (Ho Chi Minh's Mausoleum and stilt house), the nearby One Pillar Pagoda; the Presidential Palace; the Temple of Literature; the Quan Thanh Temple, the tranquil Tran Quoc Pagoda, West Lake; and your choice of one of the city's museums (either the History Museum or the Ethnology Museum). Conclude your day with a visit to "Cho Hom", one of Hanoi's fabric markets. There are two main reasons people go there: to buy fabric, or and just to be in awe of all the colours, textures and life here.
    In the evening, you may wish to take a peaceful stroll around Hoan Kiem Lake (Lake of the Restored Sword), a pretty lake steeped in Arthurian-style legend. On weekends traffic around Hoan Kiem Lake is closed off and the area is transformed into a pedestrian space. But this pedestrian area is so much more than just a haven from the chaos of everyday traffic; it is an important community space. You can find families and couples out for a leisurely stroll, musicians performing to crowds, children (and adults) cruising around on two-wheeled hoover boards or roller skates. It is lively and a great feeling

      We returned from a 12 day trip to Vietnam and Cambodia, in early May 2018, and it was absolutely amazing. I offer my congratulations to the travel company, Asia Travel and Leisure for their faultless organisation and arrangements. The Tour was expertly planned and perfectly executed. The standard of hotels was superb. At the hub of the operations was Mua Nguyen who sent comprehensive details of what was necessary well before our departure date.
