Join YPT as we cross the whole of Vietnam in search of traces of the latest history of the country. Throughout this tour you will explore the length and breadth with us of this country, from the impact of the Vietnam War to its people and culture, and one of the most delicious cuisines within the whole of Asia.
We start in Ho Chi Minh City – Saigon – where we check out the Cu Chi Tunnels and War Remnants Museum as well as life in general in this incredibly vibrant city. We then head up the coast to Nha Trang and Hue to further explore Vietnam’s ancient history, and we won’t pass the opportunity for a few drinks by the beach either!
Everyone knows the DMZ on the Korean peninsula, here we’ll jump back in time and experience what divided Vietnam until the unification of the country in 1979. We of course end the tour in the capital Hanoi, visiting the mausoleum of Uncle Ho Chi Minh.
With time by the beach, exploring fishing markets, climbing destroyed tanks from more recent conflicts than the Vietnam war, this tour has it all for the budget traveller who wants to make the most out of a Vietnam tour. This tour follows our Dark Tourism Cambodia Tour and can be done as a combo with discounts!
