About your stay
Vietnam has to be one of the jewels in the crown of south east Asia and a must visit destination for lovers of culture and cuisine.
Check out the amazing locations that you will be visiting below.
Ho Chi Minh City
Once you have landed in Vietnam you'll want to get straight out there and explore Ho Chi Minh City. Also known as Old Saigon, this city in southern Vietnam is home to plenty of tourist attractions, mainly centred around the Vietnam war - including tunnels that both civilians and soldiers used to hide from American helicopters.

Da Nang/ Hoi An
Known for it's long stretches of beaches and great bar scene, Da Nang is a fast growing city just over an hours flight south of Hanoi.
Located 30 minutes taxi ride south of Da Nang lies Hoi An. Made famous by its night markets this small town really comes to life after sun down. Traditional lanterns hang from every building illuminating the streets, people send candles in paper boats down the river giving the area a magical feeling. During the day the markets are still open, or you could take advantage of being close to the coast, hire a bike and ride to the beach for some R&R!
Hotel: 4* Aurora Riverside Hotel - 4.5/5 on Tripadvisor
The hotel is located within walking distance of the popular Old Quarter. With countless local vendors selling all manner of wears, loads of street food stalls (including some of the best Banh Mi in the whole of Hanoi), all surrounding the landmark Hoan Kiem lake.
There are also plenty of opportunities to venture out of the city and see the sights of northern Vietnam. Halong Bay is just a 3 hour drive away and there are many companies around that offer boat tours and overnight cruises around the UNESCO site!

There are a great many solo travellers making their way through this corner of the world so there will be plenty of chances to meet new people.
