Sitting on the southeastern curve of Asia, with beautiful nature, romantic towns, mighty rivers, untouched beaches, and indulgent meals, Vietnam seems to beguile every couple. Fly to Saigon as our first stop. There, we’ll get into millions of scooters moving on the streets when you take a foot tour by a local after getting a visit to the China town. We’ll travel through small alleys to slurp the city’s best dishes before stopping at a cafe for some live music. This hours-long experience will touch all our senses, not just taste. We’ll take to the Mekong River on a boat, passing picturesque scenery, to look for something a little more rural. Continue to Da Lat - the most romantic city in Vietnam - where we’ll walk into the world of colors of exquisite silk artworks, visit a tranquil monastery, and enjoy a romantic candle-lit dinner. From there, fly to central Vietnam, where the charming town of Hoi An offer an enticing mix of culture and architecture that we’ll discover in a walking tour and a private cooking class. More relaxing await at the end of the tour in the beach city Da Nang. At a luxury resort set on the white sandy beach, plenty of soulful experiences and pampering will make your honeymoon trip unforgettable.
Arrive at Ho Chi Minh City, you will be met by your local guide and a private driver and transferred to your hotel. Formerly known as Saigon, Ho Chi Minh City has a fascinating history and is arguably a city of commerce and culture. If you arrive early, there’s plenty to see and do on your own.
Free in the morning. We’ll meet our driver and guide in the afternoon to see Cho Lon - the largest Chinatown in the world. Built in 1778 by the Hoa community, Chinatown has so many things to ensure an interesting visit from a sacred temple with unique architecture to the market that most Chinese people come for trading.
In the evening, we’ll take a scooter ride to merge into millions of scooters on the streets. We’ll ride through small valleys, look for the most popular local streetside restaurants, sit shoulder-to-shoulder with locals to taste the best street food of the city. End your night at a rooftop bar to have a panorama view over the twinkling city lights.
This morning head out on a day trip to explore the Mekong Delta. We’ll drive to Ben Tre where we’ll board a boat for a cruise down the Mekong River to visit several local workshops where we’ll try our hands on the process and sample local delights. A bike ride will follow, taking us through sprawling rice fields and peaceful countrysides, arriving at a local restaurant where we’ll savor delicious lunch. Afterward, paddle in a sampan (small rowing boat) past water coconut trees along tranquil canals. After the cruise, return via our private car to Saigon.
Today, we’ll be transferred to the airport for our flight to Dalat. Upon arrival, a local guide and private driver will take us to the hotel for check-in. Free on your own to discover the most romantic city in Vietnam. The city is cool all year round, surrounded by hills, pine forests, lakes, and waterfalls, dotted with elegant French-colonial villas.
In the evening, enjoy a romantic private dinner at your charming resort.
Our full day tour of Dalat begins with the Van Thanh Flower village, then the Highlands Coffee Plantation, Weasel Coffee Workshop, the Silk Factory, and a trek to the K’Ho minority village. The afternoon continues after a delicious lunch at a local restaurant with an enjoyable cable car from the Robin Hill to Truc Lam Monastery - the largest Zen meditation study center in Vietnam, and Tuyen Lam Lake that is considered as the most beautiful lake in southern Vietnam. Our tour ends with a visit to XQ village to see exquisite silk artworks that are embroidered from millions of miniature stitches of colored silk thread all by hand.
Today is a free day to explore Da Lat. In the place of rice fields as the rest of Vietnam, there are coffee plantations, flower gardens, and strawberry farmings. You might want to visit the waterfalls and Linh Phuoc Pagoda which is covered in colourful mosaic made from pieces of pottery and glass. Dalat is also attracted many visitors for its food, so it's also a good idea to enjoy a meal at Dalat Night Market.
Today, take a morning flight to Da Nang. Upon arrival, we’ll meet our driver to transfer to the hotel in Hoi An. Declared a World Heritage site in 1999, Hoi An was a major trading port from the 15th to the 19th centuries. Today, parts of the beautiful town still remain the feel of centuries past.
Hoi An is known for its delicious regional food. Today, we’ll experience the sights and sounds of a local market where we’ll learn about main ingredients in Vietnamese cuisine before getting into a cooking lesson. A leisurely boat ride along the Hoi An River will take us to the cooking school. The chef will take us to visit the herb garden, demonstrate what we’ll cook and explain clearly how to cook each dish. After that, we'll prepare the food ourselves with her great patience and careful instruction. Taste our delicious creation for lunch.
Later, wander among well-preserved ancient houses and shops of this ancient riverside town, which is quite simply the most enchanting place in Vietnam. The town is a perfect blend of Vietnamese, Japanese, Chinese and Western architecture, which can be seen from the famous Japanese Covered Bridge, a 200-year-old merchant house, and the 15th century pagoda.
Today, travel by private car to Fusion Maia Da Nang Resort on the beautiful My Khe Beach where you’ll spend your last 4 days in your honeymoon. This gorgeous beach resort overlooks a long expanse of beach with private pool in every villa. As soon as you step on your room, there’ll be no doubt that you’re entering the heaven.

Tran Thuy (Judy), Exotic Voyages organized our 7-week tour of Vietnam, Malaysia, Thailand, Laos & Cambodia. She was so attentive to our every request. She followed our stated budget, made many changes to our itinerary (5 drafts) before issuing a detailed itinerary with all important details, contacts, times etc. etc. Even after we paid the full payment, she was quick to respond to any concerns we had. In addition, when we arrived at each destination, we received a letter indicating what times we would be picked up for various tours or to go to the airport. Evaluations were done throughout the journey and we were always met by someone at least 15 minutes prior to our pick-up time. It was so comforting to be met at the airport in-spite of numerous airplane delays. The guides all expressed how happy they were to work for Exotic Voyages. Special mention to some of the outstanding guides - Tukta in Thailand (did so many extra things for us - above and beyond her duties - very caring and made accommodations for us as needed); Mr. Thong in Lao, Mr. Buu, Hoi An, Sherry in Kaula Lumpur, Miss Pitsamai Lurthoo in Thailand. All the drivers were simply outstanding - always calm in-spite of difficult traffic conditions. We took 3 cooking sessions and they not only provided us with great food and how to prepare it but provided us with an opportunity to get to know the day to day experiences of the locals. To us this is what travel is all about - getting to know the locals. This was a journey of a lifetime. We would recommend Exotic Voyages highly and are very grateful to Thuy and the whole team for their efforts. We were provided with 24/7 emergency contacts for each country - we contact Mr. Mark in Thailand and he was so calm and reassuring in sorting out our problem.READ MORE

This is the second time I've used EV and they did not disappoint! Back in 2012 they organised my whole trip - hotels/drivers/flights/visas/guides etc. This time I used Air bnb for some of my trip and Annie helped me connect the dots. Annie was so helpful and understanding of my needs, she's very patient! She really will help you create the trip you really want, her inside knowledge is absolutely golden and she was always on hand if I had any problems. She provided a really efficient safe and trust worthy service. All the services Annie recommended were highly professional and we were shielded from a lot of stress and harassment that foreigners can sometimes experience. We had a great trip and plan to returning next year. Hopefully Annie can help us organise that!READ MORE

We normally don't use travel agencies and prefer to do our own planning, but we decided to use Exotic for this trip because of how unfamiliar we were with the country. It was a great decision. Tran Hoa helped us from the planning stage, to choosing individual activities, and modifying our itinerary several times. During the trip we were always met on time by excellent guides, everything was as expected, and the quality and standards were always up to par. I would use them again and recommend them wholeheartedly.READ MORE
