South Vietnam & Phu Quoc Island

Our South Vietnam and Phu Quoc island discovery tour starts in the deep south and Vietnam’s upbeat former capital of Saigon, officially known as Ho Chi Minh. Enjoy this bustling ever changing youthful city with its amazing markets and neon night life before you head for the traditional experience of the Mekong Delta. Once here you spend two days on water, where you will discover fascinating stilted houses, floating morning markets and stunning rural country side, as well as getting acquainted to the local way of life and traditional practices that go back generations.

Leaving the main land behind you travel by boat out to the former Cambodian ruled island of Phu Quoc. The island has a unique and different feel to it unlike anywhere else in Vietnam, and it is the perfect end to a holiday, where visitors get to explore a little of what Vietnam has to offer, but without over doing it. So if you are looking to escape from your hectic work schedule, then kick off your shoes, sit back in that deck chair, enjoy the beach side cocktail service and get to experience the jet setters way of life for a few days.

Phu Quoc really is that island paradise that so many of us look for. As if you do feel energetic enough to venture outside your gorgeous seaside abode, then you will experience even more stunning coconut palms lining the squeaky clean white beaches wherever you go on the island. Alternatively, you could enjoy your time in the warm turquoise and clear waters of the islands and do a spot of snorkeling or shell collecting, but of course nothing too strenuous, as you enjoy the perfect end to any holiday in Vietnam.
