    You’ll start your luxury trip in Hanoi, Vietnam’s artistic and intellectual capital, which celebrated its 1,000 year anniversary in 2010.

This afternoon, you’ll drive south to Danang through the inspiring 4,900 foot high Hai Van Pass, Vietnam’s geographical and psychological boundary between north and south. The peak of the pass lies perpetually shrouded in clouds. You will stop at the stone-carving village at the foot of the Marble Mountains and continue to the absolutely charming and relaxed town of Hoi An. Believed to have been settled no less than 2,200 years ago, Hoi An was a thriving seaport and a base for seafaring nations seeking new sources of wealth throughout Southeast Asia.

The grandeur of this bygone civilization is truly astounding. You will visit Angkor Thom (or “Great City”) which is in some ways even more spectacular than the colossal Angkor Wat, as it has nearly disappeared into the jungle.

    You will be met and transferred to your comfortable hotel for check in (subject to room availability).
