Vietnam is a truly awe-inspiring country pirates, and we've tried to pack the main sites in to an 11-night trip. We've gone for very well-rated hotels in each city, even going for the extra indulgence of spa hotels in Hanoi, Hoi An, Ho Chi Minh City and Phu Quoc. We've added a full board cruise around the natural beauty of Ha Long Bay. The last stop of your trip before flying home from Ho Chi Minh City is the tropical paradise island of Phu Quoc.

Hanoi & Ha Long Bay

Your flight will arrive in Hanoi, the capital of Vietnam and a fascinating combination of Sino-Vietnamese motifs and legacies of the colonial French. you'll be staying at the The Palmy Hotel & Spa, right in the heart of the action. Rated 4/5 on TripAdvisor, the spa facilities will be the perfect way to unwind after a long flight.

From Hanoi you'll travel to Ha Long Bay. During your full board two day overnight cruise, you'll take in the natural splendour of thousands of limestone karsts and islets rising out of the emerald green waters. Transfers to and from your Hanoi hotel are also included.

Hoi An

After another night at the spa hotel in Hanoi you'll jet down to Da Nang. Da Nang is just a 30-minute cab ride from the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Hoi An, one of our favourite stops in Vietnam. There you'll stay at the Hoian Sincerity Hotel & Spa, a 4* property rated an incredible 5/5 on TripAdvisor (796 reviews!). Breakfast is included and you'll be just a few minutes' walk from Hoi An Ancient Town and the Chuc Thanh Pagoda - the perfect short trip!

Ho Chi Minh City & Phu Quoc Island

After another short flight from Da Nang you'll be in Ho Chi Minh City (formerly Saigon) - the booming business metropolis of Vietnam. As an extra special pirate treat we're looking at staying at the 4* Harmony Saigon Hotel & Spa, rated 4.5/5 on TripAdvisor. If you can tear yourself away from the spa facilities you'll find yourself in District 1 - slap bang in central Ho Chi Minh City and a 10-minute walk from Ben Thanh Market.

We wanted to end the trip by the beach so included a trip to Phu Quoc - a beautiful island about a 1-hour flight from HCMC. With isolated beaches, delicious food and a laid back style, Phu Quoc is just what we want in a tropical Southeast Asian island. You'll be staying at Phu Quoc Dragon Resort & Spa, rated 4.5/5 at TripAdvisor.

From Phu Quoc you'll fly back to HCMC. After 2 nights at Compass Living Hai Ba Trung (rated 5/5 at TripAdvisor) you'll fly back to the UK. But don't despair pirates, there's a whole country to explore any time you want to return!
