Vietnam is fast emerging as one of Southeast Asia’s new beach destinations. Some beaches are already quite heavily developed such as Nha Trang and China Beach, but this itinerary ventures off the trail to connect you with some more remote beach destinations. The journey begins in Saigon where we visit the War Remnants Museum and the haunting Requiem exhibition of war photography. Later we venture further afield to see the Cao Dai Temple at Tay Ninh, a unique religion that blends the world’s spiritual beliefs together. We also venture underground to explore the Cu Chi Tunnels. We fly to the remote Con Dao Islands. Once used as a political prison by the French authorities, they are emerging as Vietnam’s best kept secret. Try pristine snorkelling, scuba diving or just relax on the beach. It is also possible to spot rare green turtles at certain times of year or the shy dugong or manatee. We then continue south to Phu Quoc, destined to become the Phuket of Vietnam one day soon. Relax on the beaches or explore the nearby An Thoi Islands or inland forests. This is a beach holiday with a difference for those that want some adventure to accompany their relaxation.

Try pristine snorkelling or just relax on the beach. Our tip for a luxurious stay is at Six Senses Con Dao with their stunning seafront villas each with its own pool. We then continue south to Phu Quoc, destined to become the Phuket of Vietnam one day soon. Relax on the beaches or explore the nearby An Thoi Islands or inland forests. Our Phu Quoc accommodation tip, the stylish colonial resort of La Veranda. This is a beach holiday with a difference.
