Travelling alone, but together, that is the 'single tour' concept. Discover Vietnam single tours with like-minded travellers where you will have the choice of going your own way or joining in with some group activities once in a while.
A single tour of Vietnam is full of variety: visit buzzing cities like Hanoi and Saigon, peaceful temples, amazing beaches and enjoy the delicious cuisine. Vietnam was part of the former Indochina, together with Laos and Cambodia. A single tour of Vietnam is definitely worthwhile: the country offers a rich culture and history as well as sensational scenery.
Hué is the old imperial capital of Vietnam. A reminder of the glorious past is the Forbidden Purple City, the former palace. Visit the imperial tombs along the Perfume River by bike or boat. In Tay Ninh, in the South, you can take part in a unique Cao Dai- ceremony in a vibrant temple. Cao Dai is a mix of all sorts of religions. Close to Tay Ninh, you’ll discover the tunnel complex of Cu Chi which was used by the guerrillas during the war. Walking through these underground passageways is a very impressive experience.
Hoi An is listed as a World Heritage site by UNESCO. Visit the colourful market of Hoi An and have your own clothes made for little money during your single tour of Vietnam. Vietnam has a rich diversity of cultures and influences. Ho Chi Minh (the former Saigon) is a good example with its French architecture and its 'China Town'.
