Chuck yourselves into charming chaos
Vietnam’s cities buzz with activity both day and night. Motorbikes weave through the backstreets, a muddle of neon signs flank the streets, food stalls serve up steaming bowls of Pho and locals pull up plastic chairs to shoot the breeze over a beer (or ten). Get lost in the chaos on the back of a Vespa scooting through Saigon, wander aimlessly through the mayhem or simply sit back with a thick, sweet Vietnamese coffee and watch the world go by.
Sleep under starry skies in Bai Tu Long Bay
High on romance and relaxation, drift between limestone peaks and jungle-clad islands in an azure bay as you explore Bai Tu Long Bay. You’ll sleep aboard a traditional Chinese junk boat as you float in the lagoon. By day, explore hidden beaches and by night sip a beer under star-studded skies. This is a more intimate, but equally gorgeous, alternative to Halong Bay, it’s got all the beauty without the backpackers.
Head for the hills
Vietnam’s highlands are whimsical and mist-swirled, with rice terraces tumbling down the hillsides, plunging valleys and panoramic views. Spend a romantic few days in the hills with your head firmly in the clouds. Trek between mountain peaks, meet the local hill tribes in Sapa and feel totally dwarfed by the staggering scenery.
Amble barefoot along castaway beaches
Vietnam has a handful of tropical hideaways just perfect for a honeymoon. Swing in a hammock on Palm Island, your own slice of paradise, snooze under swaying palm trees and feast on fresh seafood against a fiery sunset. Think long barefoot days and cool, breezy nights where twinkling lanterns line the shore as bamboo beach bars crank out laid-back beats.
