"Thank you for organising our holiday (to China).

We had a great time.

All of the guides were on time, very well informed and easy people to be with.

We have seen so many things and eaten in local places where we would never have gone by ourselves.

We wouldn't hesitate to recommend you and if you would like more details of our adventures or a statement of recommendation let us know."

Nicola, Michael and Family

Thanks for all of your help with this trip"

Discover Hue & Hoi An - 5 Days


The central coast of Vietnam is one of the most fascinating, historical and appealing parts of this country.

Here days are split between historical wonders of Hue, the former Imperial Capital of Vietnam, a peaceful town set on the gently flowing Perfume River and the delightful charms of Hoi An, where historical sites, beaches and quaint colonial architecture combine to create one of the most visited yet unchanged towns in Central Vietnam.


Day 1 - Arrive Hue


Discover Hue & Hoi An - 5 Days / 4 Nights - itinerary

Arrive in Hue, the former imperial capital of Vietnam and transfer to your hotel.

Overnight in Hue.


Day 2 - Hue (B)


0830 depart from your hotel in Hue. Start at the Imperial Citadel where the Nguyen Dynasty ruled between 1802 and 1945. From here take a cyclo through dai noi ‘Old City’ to Tinh Tam Lake where the Emperors used to come to relax; full of lotus flowers in summer there are many local style coffee shops around the lake where university students come to study.

Continue to visit Thien Mu (Celestial Lady) Pagoda overlooking the Perfume River; constructed in 1601 the 21-meter tall tower is the centerpiece of the pagoda and represents seven reincarnations of Buddha. In the grounds of the pagoda is the Austin car made famous when in 1963, a resident monk drove the vehicle to what was then Saigon to protest against the southern regime. The photo of his self-immortalization was captured and is one of the most well-known images of the war.

In the afternoon see the tomb of the former emperor Minh Mang which is located in a tranquil setting of gardens and ponds.

Journey on to Khai Dinh’s Tomb which is traditional Vietnamese in design with a European touch making it unique from the other tombs in Hue.

Before heading back to your hotel take time to stroll around Dong Ba Market with your guide. The market is another of the must see sites in Hue, the stalls are teeming with color and a great place to catch a glimpse of everyday life.

Overnight in Hue.


Day 3 - Hue - Danang - Hoi An (B)


Discover Hue & Hoi An - 5 Days / 4 Nights - itinerary

Leave Hue for Hoi An, a major Asian trading port in the 17th and 18th centuries whose architecture and relaxed lifestyle has changed little over the years. The scenic route passes through the wonderfully photogenic fishing village of Lang Co before climbing over the Pass of Ocean Clouds.

Drive through Danang and visit the Cham Museum, which contains the finest collection of Cham sculptures in the world. In the afternoon take a walking tour of the ancient town centre to visit the former merchants’ homes, the 400 year-old Japanese Covered Bridge and the colourful market.

Overnight in Hoi An.

Hue to Hoi An (140km): 3 hours


Day 4 - Hoi An - My Son - Hoi An (B)


Discover Hue & Hoi An - 5 Days / 4 Nights - itinerary

Start the day, with a half day trip to visit the capital and religious centre of the former Champa Kingdom, My Son. Here, 40km southwest of Hoi An, in a lush green valley, are dozens of red brick towers and sanctuaries dating from between the 7th and 13th centuries. On the way back to Hoi An stop to visit Tra Kieu, formerly known as Simhapura or the Lion Citadel, the capital of Champa between the 4th and 8th centuries. Some of the finest sculpture in Danang’s Cham Museum originated from here.

On returning to Hoi An, the afternoon is free to relax perhaps browsing for souvenirs in Hoi An’s art galleries and silk shops, or maybe cycling to the nearby Cua Dai Beach (on own account).

Overnight in Hoi An.

Distances and journey time:

Hoi An to My Son (60km): 1.5 hours
