With its sweeping coastline, majestic mountains, lush countryside, and fast-paced cities, Vietnam’s landscapes are as intriguingly varied as its history. Its culture has bent to many winds, yet has remained deeply, bravely rooted. This journey introduces you to the vivacious essence of Vietnam, taking you slowly up the country’s arc and revealing areas most integral to its soul—all in top style. As with any GeoEx Custom Trip, we’ll adjust the itinerary to your preferences—more time here, less time there—or happily, skillfully build something entirely from scratch.
