On the way up Vietnam’s central coastline, travelers will stop at the 17th century port town Hoi An and visit Hue to take in the ancient mausoleums which hold the remains former leaders of Vietnam.
In Hanoi travelers can experience an insider walking tour again, led by expert local Backyard Travel guides, rounded off with a water puppetry performance - a uniquely Vietnamese art.
