A country of contrasts where pleasant surprises await at almost every turn

A country of beautiful diversity, Vietnam entices travellers with soaring mountains, thousands of kilometres of unspoilt beaches and one of the best street food scenes anywhere in the world. Anchored by Hanoi in the north with its 1,000 years of history, and the modern, French-influenced metropolis of Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon) in the south, Vietnam also boasts world-class beach destinations, including Nha Trang, Danang and the paradise island of Phu Quoc, all home to luxury designer resorts and private yacht charters.

In between these hotspots are rural towns and idyllic landscapes where buffalo and farmers in conical hats work the fields of the Mekong Delta, junks drift through the morning mist on Halong Bay and cyclo drivers peddle along the narrow streets of Hoi An’s Ancient Town.

A pleasing mix of contrasts, Vietnam beguiles with the warmth, openness and positivity of its people, an abiding memory of an alluring country.

    Mekong Delta, Vietnam

    Vietnam’s lush, green Mekong Delta is home to about 20 million people and nearly 3,600km (2,230 mi) of streams, canals and rivers. The Delta is Vietnam’s pantry, producing 50% of the nation’s rice, 80% of its fruit, and 60% of its fish.

    Highlights include visiting a small home factory that makes sticky rice wrapped in coconut leaves; scenic motorboat and sampan ride along narrow, tree-lined canals past rural riverscapes; leisurely cycling along small village lanes for a taste of country living; and visiting the Delta’s tropical fruit orchards via your choice of horse-drawn cart or tri-motorcycle.

    Duration: Full day

  • Yoga and Meditation at Hanoi’s West Lake

    Hanoi, Vietnam

    Meditation is an important Zen practice to many Vietnamese Buddhists.

  • Practice Tai Chi with a Master

    Hanoi, Vietnam

    Based on the philosophy of Taoism, Tai Chi resides somewhere at the intersection of physical exercise and meditation. Originating more than a thousand years ago as a form of combat training, the slow, even movements of Tai Chi aim to improve concentration and balance while achieving a harmony between mind and body. Hanoi’s early morning hours, before the controlled chaos of the city sets in, are ideal for practising this gentle form of martial arts. In the peaceful garden surrounds near the Opera House, meet with a local Tai Chi Master who has been practising this oriental exercise and philosophy for almost 10 years. Breathe in the early morning air, listen to the birds sing and move your body under the guidance of the Master in a series of movements that blend gentleness with strength.

    Duration: 30min – 1hr

Set next to the river within a secluded rice field is a private tent all set-up awaiting for your arrival. Savour an incredibly atmospheric candlelit BBQ dinner with fresh caught seafood and locally grown vegetables for a truly authentic and romantic experience.

    Duration: 3hrs

  • The Essence of Hue Through the Lens

    Spend the afternoon capturing images of Hue’s people and places at the 15th century village of Thanh Toan with its small local market providing a host of colourful backdrops. Thanh Toan is also the home of an ancient covered bridge. Its built-in bench seating for weary villagers returning from the nearby market offers excellent opportunities for portrait photography, particularly of the town’s older women who flash toothsome smiles showcasing betel nut-stained teeth.

    Hanoi, Vietnam

    The Red River Delta surrounding Hanoi is renowned for its rich, fertile land, fed by the alluvia from the Red and Thai Binh Rivers.

Capture timeless scenes of farmers working at their flower and vegetable gardens, clearing the land, watering and cutting flowers and vegetables, and loading up motorbikes for a trip to the market.

    Duration: 4hrs

  • Improve the Life of a Villager with a Cow Donation (Exclusive)

    Hue, Vietnam

    Buffalo and cattle play a tremendously important role in the lives of rural farmers. Because of their usefulness and high economic value, these animals are often treated as members of the family. In addition to providing milk and meat, cattle are essential for working the land in rural Vietnam. They are allowed to roam freely during the day and eat herbs and grasses found around the village, minimising the upkeep of these animals. Travel to the outskirts of Hue and participate in a ceremony where you will donate a cow to a family of farmers, with local authorities and villagers as witnesses. Spend some time with the recipients of your life-changing gift and learn about their daily life and future plans, all made brighter by your generous donation.

    Duration: 2hrs

  • Sampan Boat Donation (Exclusive)

    Mekong Delta, Vietnam

    Riverboats and sampans are the main means of transport in the Mekong Delta, Vietnam’s largest rice farming area. The traditional sampan is used for transporting goods to and from market (both floating and land-based), ferrying children to school, and even as floating shops. As a result, families who cannot afford a sampan can find themselves cut off from everyday life.

    Trails of Indochina identifies a family in need then facilitates a face-to-face meeting with the traveller. The highlight is an intimate ceremony where the traveller personally delivers the sampan to the family, witnessed by villagers and local authorities. The event is emotional for everyone involved – the grateful family for a truly life-changing gift and the traveller rewarded with the knowledge that a single, meaningful gesture will provide an entire family with a sustainable livelihood for years to come.

    Duration: 30min-1hr (exclusive of travel time)

  • Learn the Practice of Royal Martial Arts

    Hue, Vietnam

    Martial arts in Hue originated as a way for mandarins to protect the royal court. In time, a form of martial arts was taught to soldiers tasked with enlarging the territory of the Nguyen Lords in the 17th century. So revered were the martial arts masters that they were awarded Doctorates of Philosophy and King Minh Mang built a Martial Arts Temple not far from the Thien Mu Pagoda to honour these masters. Rediscover this ancient practice by visiting a martial arts school. Enjoy a private class with the head master and see how the gestures and sequences of Hue martial arts resemble the movements of animals defending themselves. Also tap into Master Kim’s comprehensive knowledge of the human body which he uses to treat injuries holistically.

    Duration: 1.5hrs

  • Afternoon With A Kite-Making Master

    Hue, Vietnam

    Vietnam has a long, storied kite-making and -flying tradition stretching back more than a thousand years. Northern Vietnam is famous for making musical kites with bamboo flutes attached while kites in the South are more aerodynamic. In the past, farmers believed kites carried their wishes for a good harvest to the gods. About 300 years ago, kites found their way into the Hue Royal Court, leading to Hue’s tradition of creating colourful and elaborate kites. Spend the afternoon with a kite artisan who’s been crafting kites for more than 45 years. Listen as he shares his passion for Vietnamese kites while learning how to create a kite yourself, possibly with the opportunity to let it take flight in the skies over the Citadel.

    Hanoi, Vietnam

    Down an obscure alley in Hanoi’s Old Quarter lives a 66-year-old man who happens to be the last remaining master of Hang Trong folk paintings. Originating in the 17th century under the Le Dynasty, this ancient art form involves a combination of woodblock printing and colourful painting on special handmade paper. Spend a fascinating few hours visiting this talented artisan in his home, witnessing him create folk paintings using the same woodblock used by previous generations of craftsmen and come to understand his desire to preserve this ancient craft.
