Day 2: Ho Chi Minh City

The history of Ho Chi Minh City has many layers, weaving a tale of decades of external Chinese, French and American influence. This morning, meet with your driver and English-speaking guide at your hotel and begin your day with a moving visit to the War Remnants Museum, intended as a call for peace with the hopes that the horrors of that war will never be repeated. The museum features a comprehensive collection of the machinery, weapons, and photos of the Vietnamese side of the war, and includes a moving tribute to the journalists, civilians, and soldiers lost during the war, as well as a critical look at biological warfare, weaponry, and worldwide movements for peace.

Continue to the Reunification Palace, also known as the Independence Palace, which was the former residence of the President of South Vietnam until the end of April 1975 during the Fall of Saigon. It was here that the Vietnam War ended when a North Vietnamese Army tank crashed through its gates and led to the formal reunification of the two sides. Continue by car to the Ben Thanh Market, a great place to shop for souvenirs, and bustling with midday activity. Pause for lunch nearby at a local restaurant. In the afternoon, visit the Notre Dame Cathedral, where the French colonial presence can be felt. The neo-romanesque Catholic Basilica was constructed from 1877 to 1833 entirely of imported French building material, including bricks from Marseilles and stained-glass windows from Chartres.

Head across the street to the Saigon Central Post Office, a stunning architectural marvel with rich Gothic, Renaissance and French influences. Head over by car to Cholon, the city’s Chinatown, and widely regarded as the largest one in the world by area. The city used to be known as Saigon-Cholon until Vietnam’s independence from France in 1955. From here continue to the Jade Emperor Pagoda, also known as Phuoc Hai and regarded as one of the most interesting pagodas in the country. Built by the Cantonese community around the turn of the 20th century and it is still busy with worshipers. Filled with smoky incense, the pagoda with its elaborately carved figurines and decorated panels of carved gilt woodwork, is dedicated to Buddhist and Taoist deities. If you only visit one pagoda in the city, this should be the one.

The views of Ho Chi Minh City in the evening are particularly lovely from the Saigon River. Your private driver and English-speaking guide will greet you at your hotel this evening and accompany you to the Bonsai Cruise for your scenic 2-hour dinner cruise along the river. The boat features an open-concept kitchen, serving up delectable regional dishes buffet-style alongside western dishes with a distinctly Vietnamese flair. The ship features elegantly appointed designs embracing locally sourced wood and comfortable seating. After dinner, your guide and driver will escort you back to your hotel.

Day 3: Ho Chi Minh City

The mighty Mekong River is the lifeblood of Vietnam and its neighbors. Originating high up in the Tibetan plateau in China, it winds across Southeast Asia for over 2700 miles and reaches its Delta on the outskirts of Ho Chi Minh City. The Mekong Delta is a veritable biological treasure trove of unique species found nowhere else, the area is also integral to agricultural production in southern Vietnam. This morning, head into the country side for 62 miles to Cai Be on a scenic journey with your private driver and English-speaking guide. Here you’ll hop in a long-tailed boat to cruise around the floating market, where you’ll find villagers exchanging goods and produce from their canoes. The Catholic cathedral in the background of the floating market makes for a dramatic photo opportunity. Head to the opposite side of the Mekong River to Hoa Binh Phuoc islet, a fascinating maze of shady creeks that are best explored from the comfort of your boat. Stop for a typical Vietnamese lunch at a small local restaurant. After lunch, mingle with the local people and visit a bonsai garden, where you can learn a few tips on caring for these delicate miniature trees. Visit the local rural homes of the region, where families still produce traditional tiles and ceramics and check out the home industries at a rice paper kiln and coconut candy kiln. At the end of the day, settle in for the two-hour transfer back to the city.

Day 8: Hanoi

Hanoi enjoys a rich Imperial history dating back over a millennium, and a surprising diversity of local ethnic groups weave the fabric of the city’s rich tapestry. Start your day on the outskirts of the city with your private driver and English-speaking guide by visiting the Museum of Ethnology. The museum provides an insightful glimpse into the country’s lengthy history, with more than 15,000 photos and 10,000 objects and artifacts depicting a historical perspective of the lives, activities, customs, and habits of the 54 recognized ethnic groups of Vietnam. Drive back into central Hanoi, stopping at the Temple of Literature, built in 1070 and dedicated to Confucius. Enjoy a local Vietnamese lunch at Banh Tom Ho Tay, a restaurant famous for its shrimp cakes in the West Lake area.

After lunch, visit Truc Bach Lake, featuring a monument to the late US Senator John McCain, commemorating the spot where he parachuted to safety after his plane was shot down over the lakes. At the nearby Huu Tiep Lake, the wreckage of an American B-52 bomber lies as a memorial to the war. From here, visit Hoa Lo Prison, constructed in 1896 by the French to house Vietnamese political prisoners. Under the French regime, it was known as the Maison Centrale and was an important symbol of colonialist exploitation of the era. The Vietnamese took it over in 1954, and the prison was subsequently used to house prisoners of war from 1964 to 1973, where it came to be known sarcastically as the Hanoi Hilton by American POWs. It is bound to be a moving visit.

Continue to Ngoc Son Temple, a pagoda situated on a small island in Hoan Kiem Lake accessible by a classically painted wooden bridge. The view of the city from the pagoda is particularly popular. End your day at a by walking through the iconic Old Quarter. The streets of this district are bustling with scooters, bicycles, cyclos, and cars zipping around pedestrians. The best way to enjoy the charming colonial architecture is to wander with your guide at a leisurely pace and be sure to stop for a cup of Vietnamese coffee or a local snack from one of the many tantalizing street vendors. Your guide and private driver will accompany you back to your hotel, or if you prefer to enjoy dinner at your pace in the Old Quarter and soak up the atmosphere, you can make your own way back to your hotel at your leisure.

  • Jennifer C. — August 10, 2018 — Asia

    Maria, our travel agent, was fantastic! She was extremely flexible to multiple requests. And, she produced an unforgettable vacation. Tajma, our guide in Thailand, was professional, knowledge, and a truly warm and wonderful person. She shared her country with us and answered countless questions. She went above and beyond what was required to make our trip special.

  • Emily G. — July 04, 2018 — Asia

    This trip was absolutely fantastic from start to finish. The planning was incredibly simple and the final product was even better than I could have ever imagined. Our local guides seemed to be hand-picked just for us and they really went above and beyond to help make our trip not only unforgettable, but also very easy. Thank you for helping to create such a memorable experience. I would absolutely recommend Kensington to anyone looking to plan a trip.

  • Karli H. — August 04, 2018 — Asia

    We had an absolutely amazing trip - every aspect of the trip exceeded our expectations. We felt well taken care of, but at the same time our guides gave us space to enjoy the trip on our own at times. We are so happy that we booked through Kensington Tours, as all of the organization and planning was done for us - thanks for a great experience!

  • Janet T. — June 23, 2018 — Asia

    Our multi-generational family of 8 recently returned from an amazing escorted, personalized 12-day tour of Japan. The quality was everything we expected and hoped for. Our tour planner, Anne-Laure, was fantastic and so was our Japanese guide, Mayumi. Both were attentive to our interests, professional, knowledgeable and personable. Transportation was high quality and on-time. The diversity and pace of the activities made our trip interesting and memorable. Our guide was flexible and allowed us to fine-tune our itinerary to meet our individual preferences. We felt safe and well-cared for. Japan is a pristine and polite country with a lot of history and we enjoyed it very much.

  • Richard F. — May 15, 2018 — Asia

    I am at a loss in describing how perfect our trip was! Every single detail was taken care of and the activities were amazing!
