Southern Overture

(Tour code: Classic - 05)

Seven-day holidays in Vietnam arranged by specialist Vietnam tour operators - Vietnam vacations and tropical beaches in the south of the country

Sample Tours:


This is an example of one of our classic tailor-made holidays in Vietnam - we'll be pleased to design similar Vietnam vacations with dates and itinerary customised to your personal preferences.

Our Vietnam vacations include tropical beaches, Ho Chi Minh City, the Mekong Delta, Kh'mer temples, authentic floating markets, the ‘Bat' pagoda, natural scenery, Phu Quoc Island, and the Cu Chi Tunnels.

Our Vietnam holidays begin with ....
... time to recover, two nights in Ho Chi Minh City, and a full day to explore Vietnam's commercial metropolis. Once you've arrived and settled in, we'll lay on a ‘Welcome' dinner where you can meet your guide and check out the itinerary. On the following morning, you can ‘do' Ho Chi Minh City: the Jade Emperor Pagoda, Ben Thanh Market, Cholon, the War Remnants Museum, the Reunification Palace – anything that takes your fancy and time allows. Alternatively, drive to visit the Cu Chi Tunnels - a famous Vietnam War Site.

Meals: one lunch and one dinner
Guide: transfers, Welcome dinner and the following day

Two days on the Mekong Delta, and two days on the island beach

After a night in Can Tho, you'll be woken at cock-crow for a quick breakfast to catch the large Cai Rang floating market: it's at its best in the early morning. Next comes a drive to Rach Gia to board a speed boat to Phu Quoc Island with time to relax. The following two days are free, the sand is white and soft and the water is warm and clear.

Meals: four breakfasts and two lunches
Guide: from Ho Chi Minh City to Rach Gia airport

Time to leave!
Unless you have an early flight, you'll have time for relaxing until your car arrives to take you to the airport for a flight to Ho Chi Minh City's Tan Son Nhat airport where you connect with your international departure flight.

Meals: one breakfast
