Begin your Vietnam tour with a day including a memorable buggy ride through the back streets of Old Hanoi; a visit to the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum; the colonial Presidential Palace that Ho Chi Minh refused to live in, along with his "house on stilts"; the famous One-Pillar Pagoda, constructed in 1049 to resemble a lotus blossom; and a visit to the infamous Hoa Lo Prison, known as the "Hanoi Hilton" during the Vietnam War. Sample Vietnamese specialties for lunch, then spend the afternoon as you wish. An art form that is unique to Vietnam and popular since the 18th century entertains you this evening during an enchanting water puppet performance. Please note: the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum complex is closed each year for annual renovations from September to December; Ho Chi Minh's stilt house and the One-Pillar Pagoda are still open for viewing.

icon Day 3: Hué, Vietnam’s Ancient Capital

Location: Hué, Vietnam

Accommodation Name: Azerai La Residence, Hue

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner


No Vietnam travel experience would be complete without a visit to Hué, Vietnam’s most beautiful city, and now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, where you'll arrive this morning following a flight to Da Nang. Upon arrival, visit the tomb of 19th-century emperor Tu Duc. After lunch, ride your private, pedal-powered cyclo to explore Hué's Citadel – which housed the Imperial City for the emperor’s official functions, and the Forbidden Purple City for his personal time – then settle in to your riverfront accommodations along the Perfume River.

icon Day 4: Imperial Sights & Da Nang’s “China Beach”

Accommodation Name: Furama Resort Da Nang

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner


This morning, explore Hué’s tranquil setting as you admire Thien Mu (“Heavenly Lady”) Pagoda, a seven-story octagonal tower built in 1844, and cruise along the Perfume River; view the boats that continue to serve as complete family homes for many residents of Hué. Then take in the scenery along the Vietnamese coast and Hai Van Mountain during a drive to Da Nang and the 18-mile-long "China Beach" – made famous by the 1980s TV show of the same name and now a popular Vietnam travel destination. You’ll spend the next two nights at one of the most prestigious beachfront resorts in Vietnam, the Furama Resort Da Nang, set right on the shores of the South China Sea.

Pay a delightful visit to a local kindergarten in Da Nang this morning, then continue your Vietnam travel by journeying to historic Hoi An, a key South China Sea trading port in the 15th through 19th centuries, and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Explore its shop-lined streets via cyclo and tour the 200-year-old "Phung Hung" house, noted for its unique architecture. What you’ll see there will reveal much about the lives of Hoi An merchants long ago. Enjoy some time on your own in the afternoon, and have dinner at your leisure tonight.

icon Day 6: Cu Chi Tunnels and Saigon Heritage

Take a morning flight to Ho Chi Minh City (formerly known as Saigon), Vietnam’s second-largest city; set off to the battlefield memorial site of Ben Duoc, northwest of the city, where you'll explore an underground world of tunnels and chambers three stories deep at Cu Chi Tunnels with your local guides. Used during the Vietnam War, the 120-mile tunnel network housed kitchens, dormitories, munitions factories, hospitals, and schoolrooms.

Location: Siem Reap, Cambodia

Accommodation Name: Raffles Grand Hotel d'Angkor

This morning, your journey continues on to Cambodia as you fly to Siem Reap for a two-night stay at the Raffles Grand Hotel d'Angkor, the closest hotel to the treasures of the fabled archaeological site at Angkor, covering an area twice the size of Manhattan. You’ll be dazzled by what you see this afternoon at the vast, 12th-century Angkor Wat temple; the bas-reliefs and many devatas (guardian spirits) that cover its walls inspire awe and admiration. This example of classical Khmer architecture has been a significant religious center for Hindus and then Buddhists through the ages. Tonight's dinner is à la carte at your hotel.

icon Day 9: Sculpted Temples of Angkor

Location: Siem Reap, Cambodia

Accommodation Name: Raffles Grand Hotel d'Angkor

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner


Enveloped by jungle roots, fascinating Ta Prohm Temple almost seems to be a part of the dense rainforest that surrounds it. A legacy of Cambodia's Khmer civilization dating from 1186, it was originally built as a Buddhist university and monastery and continues to captivate today, as you'll see on your visit. The last capital of the Khmer empire, the walled city of Angkor Thom is
home to the richly decorated Bayon Temple, known for its eerily smiling carved faces. When you see the Elephant Terrace in Angkor Thom, which was the foundation of the pavilion in which the king held audiences, you’ll understand how it got its name! Later, you may wish to join us for a cruise on Tonle Sap Lake, revealing fascinating floating villages.

icon Day 10: North to Chiang Mai & Up to Doi Suthep

Location: Chiang Mai, Thailand

Accommodation Name: Four Seasons Resort Chiang Mai

Fly via Bangkok to charming Chiang Mai, Thailand, the "Rose of the North," established in the 13th century, and known for its artistic and cultural heritage. Enter another world when you arrive at the luxurious Four Seasons Resort Chiang Mai, where your richly appointed accommodations feature a Lanna-style sala (pavilion) looking out over gardens, terraced rice paddies, and mountains. Take a scenic drive to Doi Suthep National Park, home to Wat Phrathat Doi Suthep – a temple perched at the top of a peak more than 3,500 feet above sea level – before enjoying dinner at your choice of restaurants back at the resort.

icon Day 11: Learn about Thailand's Elephants

Location: Chiang Mai, Thailand

Accommodation Name: Four Seasons Resort Chiang Mai

Meals: Breakfast, Dinner


Elephants – Thailand's national animal – are an integral part of Chiang Mai’s economy and culture. Visit an elephant camp today to see how these marvelous animals are trained to work in a teak forest; you'll have a chance to feed them bananas and sugar cane, see them demonstrate various skills, and see baby elephants in the nursery before you return to your Mae Rim Valley resort where the remainder of the day is spent as you please.

icon Day 12: Colorful, Culturally Rich Hill Tribes

Location: Chiang Mai, Thailand

Accommodation Name: Four Seasons Resort Chiang Mai

Meals: Breakfast, Dinner



Take an unforgettable excursion to the hill tribe villages of Chiang Mai today to meet the people of the Palong, Padong and Karen tribes, who live peacefully there as small farmers, observing and honoring their traditional ways of life. They'll share their crafts and folkways with you... you'll even get to try on the traditional neck rings worn by members of the "long-necked" Karen tribe! Then return to your resort for time as you choose and dinner à la carte this evening.

icon Day 14: A Grand Palace & a Reclining Buddha

Location: Bangkok, Thailand

Accommodation Name: Rosewood Bangkok

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch


An express boat whisks you from the hotel for a morning of sightseeing in Bangkok, an intriguing mix of ancient and modern. Walk to the 18th-century Grand Palace for an "audience" with the Emerald Buddha, while the giant Reclining Buddha awaits your admiration at Wat Pho, the oldest and largest temple in the city. Following a traditional Thai lunch, a motorboat ride returns you to your hotel for an evening at leisure and dinner on your own in Bangkok.

icon Day 15: Exploring Bangkok's Klongs

Location: Bangkok, Thailand

Accommodation Name: Rosewood Bangkok

Meals: Breakfast, Dinner


Cruise up the Chao Phraya River and through a network of canals, called klongs, which lace the city. These often-bustling "city streets," lined with homes and small businesses, are where much of "real life" in Bangkok is found, as you'll witness firsthand; stop at Wat Arun (the Temple of Dawn) along the way. Then journey from the riverside to the Jim Thompson House & Museum, where you'll join a local guide to tour the art- and artifact-filled Bangkok home of the expatriate American architect, OSS officer and postwar Thai silk entrepreneur who mysteriously disappeared in the 1960s. Following a free afternoon, cap your extraordinary Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam travel with a farewell reception and dinner this evening.

icon Day 16: Journey Home

But, what surprised us the most was that Tauck provided very limited "wow" experiences on this trip as compared to previous Tauck experience.

1) elephant camp, 2) Four Seasons Chiang Mai, 3) boat tour of poverty of the floating village in Cambodia & 4) Tauck requiring for us to pay for some of the most memorable experiences on the trip (Vespa foodie tour, Kick boxing match, etc.

The streets of Saigon are a constant buzz of commotion as thousands of scooters, bikes, cars, buses, trucks weave, bump, honk, sway, rattle together as we sat and watched this sea of chaos.

Navigating the crossing of the streets is most memorable and we laughed all the time holding our hands as we ran across the streets.
