Ho Chi Minh City to Hong Kong - 10 Days
Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon), Nha Trang, Qui Nhon, Da Nang (Hoi An/Hue), Hanoi (Haiphong), Halong Bay, Hong Kong
Hong Kong’s flamboyant energy launches you on this unforgettable journey of contrasts. Three-wheeled Vietnamese cyclos , western motorbikes, and small cars share the streets with stray chickens and encroaching fruit stands. Temples and wartime sites are surrounded by the hubbub of local markets and sidewalk diners spilling out of popular cafes. Vietnam is a kaleidoscope of impressions, and on your private yacht, you’ll be privy to patterns you would miss traveling on a larger ship. Azure, cerulean, cyan, jade, celadon, malachite… the colors of Halong Bay and its limestone karsts are mesmerizing, and alone would justify its UNESCO status. History oozes out of every doorway in the old trading port of Hoi An (another UNESCO site). Vestiges of the Cham and Nguyen dynasties live on near Qui Nhon and Nha Trang. As you call on less-visited ports and extend your stay in fascinating places like Da Nang and Hanoi, the charm of this intriguing country grows.

Hoi An: Dreams of Floating Lanterns
Fascinating Hoi An is the perfect place to experience the best Vietnam has to offer in arts, crafts, culture and cuisine. And this exclusive Dreams of Floating Lanterns event was created specifically for our guests to enjoy the best of Hoi An.
You'll be greeted with a private performance of lion dances and then welcomed to Nam Long, a beautiful restaurant situated in lush gardens on the Thu Bon River. While you're dining, lanterns will be gently placed in the river to add to the enchantment of the evening. Traditional music and dancers will entertain you. And you'll even have the opportunity to practice skills like Vietnamese letter drawing, lantern-making, and wood-engraving in interactive workshops. This unique event is presented exclusively for Windstar guests.
