Tour Description

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.

Day 1 – Arrive in Hue

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

Day 2 – Hue

Depart from your hotel  and 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. Continue to visit Thien Mu (Celestial Lady) Pagoda overlooking the Perfume River. 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.

Day 3 – Hue to Hoi An via Danang –  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. (B)

 Day 4 – Hoi An to My Son return to Hoi An – 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. On returning to Hoi An, the afternoon is free to relax. (B)

Day 5 – Depart Danang – The morning is at leisure until transfer to Danang Airport for onward flight. (B)
