Join YPT as we cross the whole of Vietnam in search of traces of the latest history of the country, exploring the culture and catching the train across the border to southwest China!
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.
For those joining Group B, you board the train over the border to China into Guangxi province, and head to Yangshuo, home of cormorant fishing and awesome karst rock scenery so beautiful its even on the back of the Chinese 20 yuan note!
This tour is a part of our Ultimate Leaders adventure where you’ll have the unique opportunity to visit the mausoleum of Ho Chi Minh, Mao Zedong, Kim Il Sung, Kim Jong Il and Lenin all in one go.
