Hanoi- Halong Bay (luxury cruise)- Ho Chi Minh


Fly from Dublin to Hanoi via Dubai and experience all that Vietnam's charming capital city has to offer. Hanoi lies on the banks of the Red River delta and it's a great place to explore on foot or by bicycle.

You'll spend four nights at the four-star Tirant Hotel in Hanoi, located on the banks of Hoan Kiem Lake and in the heart of the Old Quarter (Gia Ngu Street). Ngoc Son Temple and the quirky Turtle Tower are within a ten minute walk. The spacious rooms are furnised with Western-style decor and amenities include complimentary WiFi, 24 hour reception and a pool and gym.

This city has an ancient history. Previously known as Thang Long, Hanoi was renamed in 1831 and occupied by the French in 1873. There is evidence of human settlements at this location as far back as the 3rd century BC.

Today's Hanoi still shows the influence of the French occupation, reflected in the architecture of Hoan Kiem Lake district (French Quarter) and the many wide boulevards. This area is home to museums, art galleries and fashion boutiques. There's also a thriving cosmopolitan restaurant scene.

The Hoan Kiem District (aka the Old Quarter) is packed with colonial architecture, Buddhist temples and pagodas. Attractions in this part of city include the Thang Long Water Puppet Theatre, Hanoi Opera House and Dong Xuan- Hanoi’s largest market.


Halong Bay

Travelling on to Halong Bay, you will experience an overnight luxury cruise on a traditional Junk boat. While this modern version of a Junk provides luxury, it maintains the feel of those ancient vessels.

The sailing route will take in traditional fishing villages, the iconic Drum Cave (with its striking stalactites and stalagmites), floating towns and lots of spots for kayaking and swimming. Enjoy a spectacular sunset as you dine on deck, then relax under the stars into the night.

Ho Chi Minh

Your journey continues as you spend 4 nights in the four-star Liberty Central Saigon Hotel in Ho Chi Minh city. Situated in the heart of the business and tourist district, this hotel offers air-conditioned rooms with free internet access. Facilities include gym, spa and rooftop pool. Guests can relax at the spa with a foot massage, sauna or steam bath.

The comfortable bedrooms offer satellite TV, minibar, tea/coffee maker, hairdryer, free mineral water and private bathroom with either shower or bathtub. While this hotel is in easy reach of the bustling nightlife, Liberty Central's own restaurant serves both Vietnamese and Western cuisine. For an informal snack, lounge in the Bistro Bar with a coffee and freshly baked pastry.

Liberty Central Saigon Hotel is just a few steps from Ho Chi Minh's expansive Ben Thanh Market- perfect for picking up souveniers,  áo dài (Vietnamese national costume) and delicious local food.
