Sailing through Secret Vietnam

Sailing through Secret Vietnam Sailing through Secret Vietnam

Cruise to rarely-seen parts of Vietnam, visit Saigon and Hanoi and relax for a few days on a superlative beach at the end.

To see what makes this cruise so special, you have to understand the traditional Pandaw. It’s a luxuriously-equipped riverboat, hand-finished in teak and brass, and its secret lies in its flat bottom. Its ultra-shallow draft means you can reach the most remote, hidden areas of Vietnam that other boats – and overland visitors – cannot.

You’ll see the spectacular limestone caves of Halong Bay, the villages of Kinh Thay River and Duong River. You’ll moor up in Hanoi, explore picturesque Highland Vietnam, see fantastic rock formations, rice paddies and temples and cruise along the Red River towards China.

Your tour culminates at Fusion Resort, one of Nha Trang’s most luxurious beach resorts.
