Day 5:  Hue to Hoi An

Explore Hue today with your private guide and vehicle. Built in 1601, the Thien Mu Pagoda (“Heavenly Lady Pagoda”) is one of the oldest and prettiest religious buildings in the country. Among the many interesting artifacts housed there is the car that took the monk Thich Quang Duc to his self-immolation in 1963 Saigon. In the heart of Hue is the Imperial Citadel, a vast complex built in the early 19th century and modeled after the Forbidden City of Peking. Today, most of the buildings have been destroyed due to bombing during the Vietnam-American War, but the monuments that remain provide a fascinating glimpse into the court life of the Nguyen Dynasty. Later, journey from Hue to Hoi An, over scenic mountainous roads with spectacular views over the coastline. (B)

Day 6:   Hoi An

This morning, enjoy a walking tour of Hoi An Ancient Town with your private guide. See the iconic Japanese Covered Bridge; first constructed on this site in 1593.  Visit the nearby Sa Huynh Museum and the Tran Family Chapel, a house for worshiping ancestors that was built about 200 years ago. Tour the Phuoc Kien Assembly Hall, a Chinese pagoda built around 1690. Finally, visit a lantern making workshop. The framework for the lanterns is made beforehand and you can observe locals adorning silk cloth on the lanterns. Hoi An is filled with shops, boutiques, tailors, cafes and restaurants and the afternoon is free to enjoy this charming town on your own. (B)                           

Day 7:  Hoi An to Saigon

Transfer to Da Nang Airport and fly to Saigon. Upon arrival transfer by private vehicle to your hotel. This afternoon visit the  former Viet Cong-Cu Chi tunnels 25 miles northwest of Ho Chi Minh City. The 250 km of tunnels make up an impressive underground network. It was from here that the North Vietnamese waged their guerrilla warfare, and you’ll see the secret trapdoors, underground kitchens, living areas and meeting rooms. The more adventurous may explore the deeper level tunnels and the less adventurous can view excavated areas from above. (B)

Day 8:  Saigon

Meet your driver, hop on the Vespa and visit Tao Dan Park to observe locals as they show off their singing birds (mornings only), followed by a stop at the Thich Quang Duc Memorial, a local flower market and funeral home. Pass by a special pagoda called “Ten Thousand Buddha” where 10,000 statues of Buddha and ashes of the dead are worshiped. Stop by the Post Office, the Opera House, the Cathedral of Notre Dame and the remarkable Reunification Palace. Drive down Dong Khoi Street (which means “people’s revolution”) to see the place where, in 1975, during the dying days of the former regime, an iconic photograph was taken of a helicopter lifting people out of Saigon. Afternoon at leisure. (B)

Day 9:   Saigon to Siem Reap

Discover the architecture of Saigon on your morning walk, from beautifully preserved colonial-era buildings to modernist steel and glass skyscrapers. Start along Nguyen Hue Street, at the end of which is the Ho Chi Minh City People’s Committee Building set in beautiful flowering gardens. Built in 1909 this elegant colonial building started life as the Hôtel de Ville. Take photos of the iconic Saigon Opera House built by the French in 1898. Buy stamps at the colonial Central Post Office and photograph the vaulted ceilings, arched windows and wooden shutters. Carry on to the former president’s palace, renamed as the Reunification Hall after the merger of North and South Vietnam in 1976. It has been preserved as it was when famously stormed by tanks on April 30, 1975 signifying the fall of South Vietnam. Finally, arrive at the futuristic Bitexco Financial Tower, the tallest building in Saigon with 68 floors. This afternoon transfer to Saigon Airport and fly to Siem Reap, Cambodia. Your guide will take you by private vehicle to your hotel. (B)

Day 10:  Siem Reap

Angkor Wat is stunning at any time of the day, but sunrise and sunset are especially beautiful times to watch the play of light on the stones. Arise early to see the sunrise over this magnificent temple with your private guide and vehicle and for wonderful photo opportunities. The crown jewel of Khmer architecture, Angkor Wat, is the national symbol and the highlight of any visit to Cambodia. Afterwards, visit the fortified city of Angkor Thom. Enclosed by a wall and wide moats, the city includes many of Angkor’s most popular sights. The next stop is Ta Prohm, one of the most popular attractions of Angkor, as much of the jungle has not been cleared and looks very much as most of the Angkor monuments would have appeared when European explorers first stumbled across them. Finish the day at Preah Khan Temple. (B)

Day 11:  Siem Reap

This morning, venture by Quad Bike into the Cambodian countryside, passing many villages along the way and lovely natural surroundings. Visit an orphanage and a school then continue to a Cambodian monastery. Note: drivers are available to accompany for those not comfortable riding by themselves. This afternoon visit Banteay Srei, a 10th century Hindu temple dedicated to Shiva. The buildings themselves are miniature in scale, unusually so when measured by the standards of Angkorian construction. These factors have made the temple extremely popular with tourists, and have led to its being widely praised as the “jewel of Khmer art.” This evening it’s off to the circus! The famous young and talented artists of the Phare Ponleu Selpak group have now come to Siem Reap Angkor. Their unique and poetic show, mixing traditional and modern theater, music, dance, acrobatics, juggling and contortion beautifully choreographed and energetically performed shows a story about Cambodian contemporary life in an ever-changing society. (B)

Day 12:  Siem Reap

Today, learn about Cambodian cuisine and culture with an enthusiastic and talented team of local chefs at an organic farm, and enjoy picking your own fresh ingredients from the soil. The farm specializes in heirloom varietals of seasonal fruits and vegetable such as tomatoes, cucumber, squash, spring beans, eggplant, local lettuce, etc. Fresh and flavorful ingredients are lovingly cultivated without the use of hormones, synthetic fertilizers, or pesticides to ensure daily supply to the kitchen.
