6-Day Colonial Route

6 Days 5 Nights

This six-day adventure immerses guests in the tastes, smells, sounds and colours of Vietnam’s Tonkin region. We take a step back in time to explore Hanoi’s most inspirational heritage sites of feudal and colonial times. Highlights include a stroll through the city’s Old Quarter and visits to Thang Long citadel, the Temple of Literature and the Fine Arts Museum. We delve into local life at Ky Son village, where we wake up to morning Tai Chi and visit rural farms, before immersing ourselves in Ninh Binh province’s stunning natural beauty. We take ox cart rides through small villages, paddle past lush rice paddies and visit ancient temples, before spending some time in iconic Halong Bay. Here, we cruise overnight through this UNESCO World Heritage Site’s iconic limestone karsts with the chance to kayak, fish and learn to cook on board, followed by the return to Hanoi.
