Journey Through Vietnam

Traverse Vietnamese waterways aboard a traditional fisherman’s boat

Encounter Vietnam’s breathtaking beauty, abiding traditions, and genuinely hospitable people on this 17-day journey with documentary filmmaker Ron Osgood.

Get acquainted with Vietnam’s French-accented capital city, Hanoi, during a three-night stay. Must-see attractions include the Old Quarter, the Temple of Literature, and the infamous Hỏa Lò Prison. 

On a full-day excursion to Ha Long Bay, explore the emerald waters and see the towering limestone islands up close by boat or kayak.

Next, peruse the acclaimed Museum of Cham Sculpture in Da Nang and Hội An’s charming Old Town. A walking tour of a nearby farming settlement will evoke daily Vietnamese life, while a cooking lesson will yield tasty rewards.

In Huế, explore the vast Imperial City in a traditional cyclo—a three-wheel bicycle taxi—before a special dinner with traditional music. With your remaining time in Hue, cruise down the Perfume River to the peaceful Thien Mu Pagoda and the palatial Tomb of Minh Mang. 

Spend two memorable days in the remote Mekong Delta—a vast maze of rivers, swamps, and islands, known for its floating markets and picture-perfect pagodas.

Finally, in vibrant Saigon, see a traditional water puppet performance, wander the Reunification Palace, and squeeze your way through the notorious Cu Chi Tunnels.
