A Vietnam cruise is a great opportunity to see some of the most memorable places in all of Asia. As ever, Cruise 1st Australia has all the latest deals – take a look here.
Why go on a Vietnam cruise?
Vietnam is home to some of the most impressive sights in all of Asia – and you’ll have the chance to visit some other renowned tourist destinations in the area.
So what does Vietnam have to offer? Well, you’ll get the authentic Asia experience, with bustling street markets, beautiful architecture and a friendly atmosphere, not to mention some fantastic cuisine. Venture further inwards and you’ll also find a modern metropolis with plenty to offer.
Visit Ho Chi Minh City (formerly Saigon) where you’ll find Notre Dame Cathedral, Ben Thanh Market, the National Museum of Vietnamese History, the Mekong Delta, the Cu Chi Tunnels and much more.
Halong Bay is a beautiful place – 2000-plus islands surrounded by pristine waters, with its caves and beaches proving a regular tourist attraction. Halong translates as “where the dragon descends into the sea” – and legend has it that a great dragon from the mountains carved many peaks and valleys with its tail, before plunging into the ocean and covering the area with water.
Other popular places to visit include Danang and Hue – but no matter where you visit, you’ll have a trip you’ll never forget.
Cruise lines currently offering trips to Vietnam include Princess Cruises, Royal Caribbean and Celebrity Cruises.
Many of the cruises visit areas outside Vietnam, including China, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Singapore.
