Put your feet up on Palm Island

Palm Island is a little pocket of paradise just two hours from Nha Trang. With only a scattering of simple but beautiful bungalows, it’s the ultimate place to get away from it all. Up on shore, laze in a hammock on Palm Island, take barefoot wanders and feast on fresh fish at sunset. The turquoise waters surrounding the island are stuffed with exotic sea life and crammed with coral, making it perfect snorkelling and diving territory.

Go zen in Nha Trang

Located halfway between Hoi An and Saigon, Nha Trang is a buzzing city with a party atmosphere but head a few miles along the coast and you’ll find long stretches of sandy beaches, turquoise seas and our special stay resort overlooking the ocean. Our bite-size trip Soft Sands of Nha Trang offers the ultimate in rest and relaxation with a yoga and meditation lesson included. The resort also has a luxury spa for some real pampering.

 

Take a break on Ho Tram

Just two hours from Ho Chi Minh City, Ho Tram is Vietnam’s easiest option to escape to the beach by far, it feels like a totally different world. The beach is white, the sand is soft and the palm trees are swaying. There’s not a great deal going on, so the best thing to do here is absolutely nothing. Visit some nearby hot springs, sink into a lounger and let the sunshine do the rest. It’s a relaxing little respite from fast-paced Vietnamese life.

Forget your worries on Phu Quoc Island

Phu Quoc is Vietnam’s Emerald Island, thick with jungle and fringed with tropical beaches. The pace is slow, the sand is soft and the sunshine is warm. With its sandy beaches and natural springs it’s brilliant for a pitstop on the way to Cambodia, a peaceful nook with great snorkelling and a delicious local seafood market. Take sunset strolls, sip an ice cold beer and settle into laid-back island life.
