Hanoi boasts a millennium of history, from temples to ancient citadels, where you can sit at the Thang Long Water Puppet Theatre and witness a sample of the North Vietnamese culture in action. Dating back to the 11th century, rising out of the culture of flooded paddy fields and a need for entertainment, villagers would stand waist-deep in the water and let the puppets dance along the surface.
Day 2 Tour of Hanoi (B-L)

In the afternoon you can bask along Soi Sim Beach, a small stretch of powdery sand surrounded by grand trees. Relax on the soft earth that melts into the colorful water while enjoying the view of the islands in the distance. In the evening the ship will anchor in the beautiful seclusion of Luon Bo, giving everyone onboard a feeling of isolation from the world beyond; this privacy enabling the family to come closer together, whether by playing games or joining the crew to embark upon a squid fishing adventure.

Climb aboard the luxurious Cai Be cruiser that begins to stream down the palm fringed riverbanks. The waterway begins to fill with boats. Shallow canoes crowd the lane, each one filled with remarkable color from fresh produce. The atmosphere is jovial and lively, full of gesturing hands and jack fruits and pineapples. You have come to the Floating Market of Cai Be. Iconic conical hats are sported along the riverbanks as people guide their boats along with long poles, pushing themselves closer to the banks, boats, and one another.
Your journey along the delta will take you away from the city skylines and into the remarkable landscape of terraced hills lush with rice paddy fields and fisherman skimming through the water for the daily catch. In the evening you will return to the comforts of Saigon.
Day 6 Saigon guided tour (B-L-D)
After breakfast your guide will lead you through the various neighborhoods that make the streets grand, reaching back through its past to help push the city forward. The French colonial influence can be felt and is hinted at within the aroma of the air, often filled with scent of rich coffee and fresh pastries. Cholon, also known as Big Market, is considered Saigon’s Chinatown. The vivacious Chinese architecture stands at the gates surrounding the winding world within. Dating back to the 18th century, the crowds of Binh Tanh Market bring the spices, textile colors, and original flavor to the district.
Hop on a cyclo, a three-wheeled bicycle taxi with a bucket seat in the front for the riders which will ferry you around the neighborhood before continuing with your tour of the city at Dong Khoi Street. The area is brimming with French colonial buildings, experiencing the change with the times. Latter, visit the Notre Dame Cathedral. The corner is quiet compared to the rest of downtown, filled with the ambience of a church rising over 190 feet tall, built of marble and stone that was long ago transported from France. The rose window that adorns the central façade is immaculate, while the interior lofted ceilings are mesmerizing; you will remain transfixed as you follow the geometric tiles down the aisle.
