Itinerary

3 Nights – Bangkok
5 Nights – Hua Hin
5 Nights – Phan Thiet
3 Nights – Ho Chi Minh


✈ UK – Bangkok (3 Nights):After your direct flight from your chosen UK airport to Bangkok, you will have three nights in this buzzing city to experience the bright lights, the markets, the delicious street food and the fantastic restaurants. Visit the floating markets early in the morning along the city’s canals and you will see the characteristic wooden rowing boats laden full of fruit, vegetables and flowers. Don’t miss the spectacular Grand Palace as well as the stunning Buddhist Temples of Wat Pho and Wat Arun. Take a river tour to see the stilt houses alongside the waterways and the most scenic areas of the city.

🚗 Bangkok – Hua Hin (5 Nights): We will then drive you to Hua Hun, Thailand’s original beach resort. In the 1920’s the Thai royal family built their summer residences here to escape from Bangkok’s heat and to this day it remains a wealthy coastal town with an official royal residence. With its’ cosmopolitan city life, lively markets and delicious street food, Hua Hun also boasts an active fishing port as well as its’ main attraction of long white sandy beaches. With seaside restaurants built on stilts which serve excellent Thai food and shops to wander around in the evenings, the town has plenty of character.

🚗 Hua Hin – Phan Thiet (5 Nights):We will then drive you back to Bangkok for your flight to Ho Chi Minh in Vietnam. From there we will drive you to the bustling coastal town of Phan Thiet where you can stay for five nights. With brightly painted boats packed into the harbour each day and colourful markets there is plenty to explore. You can also enjoy the excellent Vietnamese food here – and you will no doubt become an expert at the difference between Thai and Vietnamese cuisine! With miles of sandy beaches, you can chill out or take part in the many water sports and activities available.

🚗 Phan Thiet – Ho Chi Minh (3 Nights): We will then drive you back to Ho Chi Minh where you will have three nights to explore the energetic city with its historic temples and ancient pagodas. Also known as Saigon, this former South Vietnamese capital is the commercial heart of the country and is a chaotic mix of street markets, grand colonial buildings and skyscrapers. It is a well worth taking a tour of the city to absorb it all and learn more about the country’s turbulent past. Visit the famous Binh Tay Market to try local food and barter for souvenirs and take a cruise out of the city along the Mekong River to see the stunning rice fields and its famous floating market.

✈ Ho Chi Minh- UK: On your last day you will be collected and taken to the airport for your flight home to the UK.
