It’s winter here in New Zealand, and I have started thinking about planning a vacation. As a woman travelling solo, the first place I look in the Women Travel the World website, and in particular their amazing Calendar of Tours for Women available for women from a range of companies around the world. Joining a small group tour like these is the perfect option for a solo traveller. Over 270 tours are listed, I decide it is Asia I want, there are 76 on offer, and Vietnam is my first choice and there are 5 to choose from. Venus Adventures is my choice today – I have travelled with them to Morocco, they are a NZ based company and the dates suit.
So I am off to Vietnam – there are spaces available – why not join me?
I have never heard of anyone who has been disappointed by a trip to Vietnam – I am looking forward to it!
These days it is an exciting, vibrant, culturally rich country, with spectacular natural environments. We start in Hanoi where we explore the maze of the ‘Old Quarter’, meet the unique and enchanting highland peoples of the north, cruise the twisting arms of Halong Bay, bask in the historical charms of Hue and alluring Hoi An with its myriad silk tailors. We finish in Saigon’s chaotic districts and markets, and take an insightful day trip to the Mekong Delta.
Details of the Trip 10-29 November from Hanoi, finishing in Saigon, with an optional Cambodia component. Cost: £2,400 / NZ$5,200 / US$3,900 / AUS$3,800 –
