Detailed Itinerary

Day 1: Arrive in Ho Chi Minh City (Vietnam), Half-Day City Tour

Ho Chi Minh City is a dynamic metropolis on the Saigon River

Xin chao! Welcome to Vietnam! Each region of this small Southeast Asian country features its own culture, cuisine, and history. Case in point: southern Vietnam. Distinct from the mountainous north, this area is famous for its massive cities, wartime landmarks, and the fabled Mekong Delta—a locale unlike any other. You'll arrive in Ho Chi Minh City, which is not only the largest metropolis in the south but in all of Vietnam. Upon arrival, a driver will pick you up for the ride to your hotel.

After settling in, meet a guide for a half-day tour of Ho Chi Minh City's highlights. First on the list is the never-dull Ben Thanh Market. This century-old market is a hub of activity, with hundreds of vendors peddling fresh produce, meats, seafood, and street eats. Browse the stalls as your guide teaches you the art of haggling. Afterward, proceed to the War Remnants Museum for a vivid look at the American War (as the Vietnam War is known locally). Highlight exhibits include military weaponry, historical photographs, prison-cell recreations, and even the infamous tiger cages.

Next, travel to 19th-century landmarks like the Notre Dame Cathedral and the Central Post Office. You'll also visit the Reunification Palace (also known as Independence Palace), which was the headquarters of the Saigon government during the war. Cap the excursion with a stroll along the upscale shopping drag of Dong Khoi Street. One of the busiest roads in the city, Dong Khoi stretches about a half-mile and is lined with beautiful French colonial buildings and other historic landmarks. 

Day 2: Transfer to the Mekong Delta & Can Tho

Travel down the Mekong
Traveling down the Mekong River is like stepping back in time 

You're in for a treat, as this morning, you'll leave on a full-day tour of the famed Mekong Delta, which begins with a transfer south of Ho Chi Minh City to My Tho. This river city is located in Tien Giang province at the doorstep of the Mekong. During a scenic boat ride, you'll pass tranquil islands as you sip fresh coconut juice (the Mekong is famous for its coconut groves). The boat tour ends with a visit to one of the area's massive floating markets, where hundreds of boats ply the waters selling fresh produce.

At the end of the tour, you'll visit Thoi Son Island. Stretch your legs on a stroll down the backroads as you pass orchards, sample tropical fruits, and listen to traditional music coming from the village homes. You'll also see a shrine dedicated to the Coconut Monk, a local religious cult leader who, back in the day, preached adherence to peace, harmony, and coconuts. Next, stop at Vinh Trang Pagoda, the largest Buddhist temple in the province. Afterward, continue another 2.5 hours to the river city of Can Tho, where you'll overnight.

Day 3: Floating Market Tour, Transfer to Ho Chi Minh City, Fly to Hoi An

Spend some time at the Cai Rang floating market
The Cai Rang Floating Market is one of Mekong's liveliest commerce centers

Rise early for a boat trip to Cai Rang Floating Market, one of the liveliest in the region.

Upon arrival, you'll check into your hotel and have the evening free.

Day 4: Ancient Town Tour & Lantern-Making Workshop

Hoi An's waterfront Ancient Town is a historical treasure

This morning, you'll discover Hoi An's myriad treasures on a guided walking tour of its Ancient Town. Highlights you'll see while walking on and around the waterfront include Hoi An Market, the Japanese Covered Bridge, and the historic Chinese meeting hall Phuc Kien, which dates to the 17th century. With its elaborate wood carvings, paintings, and sculptures, a visit to the hall leaves an indelible impression.

Later, you'll participate in a private workshop to discover the ancient art of lantern-making. Japanese settlers brought the first lanterns to this region in the 16th century, and they've been a cultural icon ever since. At the home of a local artisan, you'll learn all about this rich history and then make your very own colorful paper lantern to take home.

Day 5: Country Bike Ride, Visit an Organic Farm, Cooking Class

Spend a day on farms and in kitchens to discover the soul of Vietnam

Spend time here alongside the local farmers as you learn their time-tested secrets to planting and tilling the soil.

Afterward, you'll visit a local home and enjoy a welcome drink and a brief rest. Then, meet your chef/instructor, who will show you the tricks and techniques for preparing delicious regional dishes like banh xeo (savory rice pancakes shrimp). You'll prepare about seven dishes, and when the cooking is done, you'll sit down with your instructor and enjoy your creations for lunch.

After the meal, you'll return to Hoi An and have the rest of the day free. Stroll the cobbled streets of Ancient Town, visit the historic plazas and pavilions, and stop in at local art galleries.

Later in the afternoon, you'll embark on a culinary adventure to sample Hanoi's fabled street food delights. Follow your expert guide around the streets of the Old Quarter, sampling typical dishes such as cha ca (grilled fish with turmeric), pho bo (beef noodle soup), and bun cha (grilled pork served with vermicelli noodles). If you're feeling adventurous, sample trung vit lon (fertilized duck eggs). Wash it down with Hanoian beer or a cup of the city's famous egg coffee. This drink was created when egg yolks were used as a substitute during shortages of fresh milk. 

Day 7: Transfer to Sapa, Stop at Black Hmong Village

As you descend into the scenic Muong Hoa Valley, you'll pass through two such villages—Y Linh Ho and Lao Chai—home to the Black Hmong people. With the help of your guide, you'll meet residents and browse their traditional handicrafts. Lunch will be served at the home of a local family in Lao Chai or a riverfront café.

Afterward, continue on the scenic trail, which passes alongside terraced rice fields backed by soaring mountain peaks. The last stop of the day is at Ta Van, a village home to the Giay people.

Meet your driver after breakfast on a half-day excursion further up into the mountains for the best views of the Sapa countryside. It won't take long, either; less than a mile outside town, you'll pass beautiful sights like rose-flower farms, chayote vines, and thick bamboo forests. As you continue uphill, you'll be treated to incredible views of the mountain rice paddies and Mount Fansipan, which is Vietnam's highest peak at 10,324 feet (3,147 m).

Day 16: Day Trip to an Elephant Sanctuary

Meet the elephants, feed them, and bathe them (their favorite activity)

Today might be a highlight of the trip, as this morning, you'll hop in a vehicle and head to the forests outside the city and the Elephant Jungle Sanctuary. This is just one of many centers in the region that rescue abandoned and abused elephants. These organizations earn money through tourism, opening their doors to visitors who can admire these magnificent creatures in a humane and eco-friendly way.

This half-day activity begins when you change into a mahout (caretaker clothing), after which you'll meet the elephants and spend the morning feeding them. You'll also take them to the river to bathe and brush them—a highlight for both the elephants and visitors. Back at the center, enjoy a snack of fresh fruit with the group and guides. Then, it's time to say a bittersweet goodbye to your new elephant pals and transfer back to Chiang Mai.

Day 17: Day Trip to the Chiang Mai Countryside

Meet locals in northern Thailand and witness a traditional way of life

To experience the full spectrum of northern Thailand's charms, it's necessary to venture outside of Chiang Mai to the countryside—and meet the people in it. Meet your guide/driver this morning and transfer out of the city by vehicle on a half-day tour. Your first destination is the region's famous rice paddies (planting season is from Jun-Oct). Here, your English-speaking guide will introduce you to local farmers for a tour of the fields. During this hands-on experience, you'll learn the process of farming this staple food, from sowing the seeds to the final harvest. 

Then, leave the car behind and hop on a moto-tricycle (local transport) for a ride through a rural village to experience a more laid-back and traditional way of life. During this part of the tour, you'll visit a family home whose residents make khao kreab (steamed rice pancakes). Meet other artisans to learn how to make nam tung, a Lanna-style woven basket. The tour wraps up at the home of master weavers who make their traditional clothing. Afterward, say goodbye to your new friends and transfer back to Chiang Mai to enjoy the rest of the afternoon on your own.

Prepare for some epic beach relaxation in Phuket

Rise early and meet your driver for the transfer to the airport and the two-hour flight south to the Andaman coast and Phuket.

After checking in, you can spend the rest of the day exploring.

If you like, head to a famous stretch of sand, like Patong, Kata, or Freedom Beach, for sunbathing and watersports like snorkeling and kayaking. However, the natural highlights of Phuket extend beyond the coast. The island has diverse landscapes, including forested hills, mountains, limestone cliffs, lagoons, and tropical forests. Many offer great hiking, like the trail up to the Black Rock viewpoint, which looks out over beautiful Cape Krathing.

Day 19: Phi Phi & Khai Islands Speedboat Tour

Phi Phi Island
Phi Phi Island is a slice of paradise in the Andaman Sea

Today, you'll zip around the Andaman Sea to the Khai and Phi Phi archipelagoes—two of the most gorgeous groups of islands in the region. At the pier, hop in a speedboat for the ride to the Phi Phi Islands. Located 25 miles (40 km) east of Phuket, they're known for their film-worthy beaches and top snorkeling spots. Highlights include swimming and snorkeling at Pileh Lagoon and Viking Cave and visiting Phi Phi Ley's Maya Bay, which was the setting for the Leonardo DiCaprio movie, "The Beach."

Make a stop at Monkey Beach, home to cheeky macaques, and continue to the cluster of Khai Islands, famed for their powdery white sands which have staved off mass development. Here, you can laze on palm-shaded beaches, sip a cocktail, or snorkel among pristine coral reefs teeming with marine life. In the late afternoon, you'll transfer back to Phuket.

Day 20: Phuket Free Day: Old Town, Beach Time & Outdoor Adventure

See the Big Buddha, one of the most impressive statues in southern Thailand

For your final day in Phuket, you can pursue any activities you'd like. Perhaps start with a trip to Karon View Point to see the whole city laid out in front of you, as well as the grand vistas of Phuket's beaches. Follow up with a visit to the Big Buddha, a giant statue nearly 150 feet (45 m) tall and considered one of the island's most important landmarks. Then, visit the monastery of Wat Chalong, or head over to the Old Town district, where you can browse an outdoor market or dine at one of its many restaurants.

Of course, you can always make a beeline for the beach to sunbathe, kick back with a cold drink, or swim. For aquatic views of Phuket, embark on a snorkeling tour or visit the aquarium at Cape Panwa to stroll its underwater glass tunnel. If you're feeling adventurous, head to the forest and soar over the jungle canopy on a thrilling zipline tour. When the sun sets, enjoy a fresh seafood dinner, browse a night market, or revel in the nightlife at Bangla Road.
