Day 1-2 : Hanoi Capital Vietnam

Explore Hanoi’s busy Old Quarter and classic colonial French Quarter.

Arrive into Hanoi international airport where you will be met by your private driver and English-speaking guide, who will accompany you to your centrally located city hotel. Depending on your arrival time, you might like to spend the afternoon exploring the classically beautiful French Quarter on foot, with its colonial buildings and manicured parks.

On day two you will head out with your guide to explore the historical part of the city. You’ll visit locally important buildings such as the Temple of Literature, (Vietnam’s first university) and one of the oldest Buddhist pagodas in Hanoi, Tran Quoc, which is situated on the banks of the West Lake. You’ll explore the streets of the Old Quarter as the sun goes down on your time in Hanoi and discover weird and wonderful things for sale in each of the area’s themed "36 streets".

 

Day 3-4: Halong Bay cruise ovenight on Boat

Relax onboard a private boat as you cruise through Halong Bay.

This morning, your driver will escort you down to Halong Bay to board your private luxury boat by lunchtime, or for a real treat why not opt for the luxury seaplane across from Hanoi.

Modelled on the traditional Chinese junks that used to sail on the bay, the handcrafted teak and oak Bhaya Legend is an intimate and elegant option for a Halong Bay cruise. This private cruise offers the chance to escape the crowds and absorb the atmosphere of this beautiful region in peace and privacy.

The small size of the vessel also permits it to take a different route through Bai Tu Long Bay, visiting hidden corners off the usual tourist trail. On board you will have your own captain, boat mechanic, chef, waiter, and tour guide who will all be on hand to make sure you have a fantastic experience and discover all the bay has to offer, while the captain will tailor your route with you in mind. This is a private chartered vessel, so your Hanoi tour guide will await your return onshore.

 

Day 5-7 : Luang Prabang

Immerse yourself in the spiritual town of Luang Prabang.

Disembark your cruise this morning and drive to Hanoi airport for your short flight to Luang Prabang. On arrival, you will be met by another private guide and driver who will conduct you to your hotel. Here you will have a chance to refresh before visiting the hillside temple of Wat Phou Kouey, on the outskirts of Luang Prabang.

You will arrive as the sun is setting to find the temple illuminated by candles and enjoy a private baci ceremony to bless your journey and your marriage. In Laos, the baci is performed in celebration of any important event such as a wedding, birth, or for welcoming guests, and is a means of expressing goodwill and good luck to others.

Wake up early on the morning of day six to watch the saffron-robed monks collecting alms in the streets. This dignified and meditative ritual demonstrates the monks’ vows of austerity and humility while the locals gain merit through their generosity. Be sure to preserve the dignity of the ceremony by keeping a respectful distance.

After observing the morning ritual, head back to your hotel for breakfast before heading out to explore the city with the help of your guide. You’ll visit the former Royal Palace (which has now been converted into a museum); Wat Mai with its unusual five-tiered roof and golden bas-reliefs; and Wat Xieng Thong, the most revered temple in Luang Prabang.

Spend the afternoon exploring the town at your leisure. We recommend a walk along the banks of the Mekong River or climbing the 328 steps to Mount Phousi, which boasts spectacular scenes of the surrounding countryside and is a great spot to watch the sun go down.

On Day seven you will board a traditional riverboat for a leisurely cruise up the Mekong River and into the countryside around Luang Prabang. The boat will reach the Pak Ou caves at the confluence of the Mekong and the Nam Ou River, where there are caves containing hundreds of sacred, centuries-old Buddha images. You’ll stop to moor for lunch in view of the stunning limestone cliffs, where you will enjoy typical Lao dishes before returning to Luang Prabang in the early afternoon.

From here, drive to Kuangsi Waterfalls, which cascade down a multi-level limestone formation creating a series of turquoise blue pools perfect for swimming in on a hot day. The jungle and dense woods surrounding the falls are filled with wildlife and pleasant walks can be taken along the natural footpaths.

 

Day 8-10: Angkor Wat

Explore the largest religious monument in the world and Cambodia’s national symbol: Angkor temple complex.

Head to Luang Prabang Airport this morning for your short flight into Siem Reap, Cambodia. Upon arrival you’ll be met by your Cambodian guide and driver, who will accompany you to visit the temple of Banteay Srei, a wonderful sight in the warm evening light.

Banteay Srei, also called the "Citadel of Women", remains the best preserved temple in Cambodia. It displays some of the finest examples of classical Khmer art, and is noted for its truly remarkably fine bas-reliefs. Banteay Srei is unusual in that it is constructed of pink sandstone, which is seen nowhere else in Angkor.

On the morning of day nine you’ll visit the Bayon Temple in the exact centre of the city of Angkor, a 12th-century masterpiece and a study in grandeur. Continue on to Ta Prohm temple, unique in that it has been left largely as it was found: overgrown by jungle trees and vines, with many parts of the temple crumbling to the ground.

Following your visits to these lesser-known temples, continue on to visit the world-famous Angkor Wat. Built during the reign of King Suryavarman II in the early 12th century, it was constructed following the model of the temple mountain symbolizing the Mount Meru, home of the gods.

After a wonderful tour of the temples, take an Angkor Gondola paddle boat across the moat of the Angkor Thom compound and watch a spectacular sunset at Prasat Chroung temple. A range of cocktails, champagne, canapés, and soft drinks will be available on the boat, as you paddle slowly along the ancient moat.

Spend your final day in Cambodia at leisure in Siem Reap. Explore the craft markets in the town or head out to discover more temples. Alternatively you might choose to relax by the beautiful pool at your hotel or indulge in the award-winning spa services on offer in town. For the ultimate view of the Angkor temples you might also consider splashing out on a helicopter tour over the vast complex out to the remote Beng Mealea temple.

 

Day 11-15: Hoi An old town

Conclude your luxury honeymoon with a few days of pure relaxation on the beautiful beaches at Danang.

For the final leg of your journey, head to the airport to return to Vietnam. On arrival, you’ll be met once more by a guide and driver who will whisk you through beautiful coastal scenery to reach the InterContinental, an award-winning resort with a private access beach. Over the next few days, if you can bear to tear yourself away from this secluded beach and jungle clad hills, take a 30-minute drive into the old trading town of Hoi An.

Hoi An is a UNESCO-listed trading port and was the largest port in Southeast Asia during the first century. Enjoy a walking tour of the pedestrianised area along the river while your guide explains the history and rich culture of the area. Visit one of the many famed tailors here to add to your wardrobe, then spend some time with a private chef learning to cook Vietnamese classics with a fusion twist.

On day fifteen you will make your way back to Danang Airport in time for your flight home, relaxed and rejuvenated by your luxurious Indochina honeymoon.
