The ideal introduction to Vietnam, this easy going private journey will allow you to see all the sights for which Vietnam is renowned, encapsulating bustling cities, charming villages and stunning natural scenery.
Start your summer early on the southern or central coast of Vietnam, where temperatures are soaring and rainfall is at a minimum. Head to the beautiful beaches of Nha Trang for a spot of rest and relaxation or while away the days in bustling Ho Chi Minh City.
Travel throughout Vietnam is possible all year round, but the months between May and August are best for those wishing to spend time at the country’s beautiful beach resorts on both the central coast and the southern coast. Travel to the northern regions, including Halong Bay, is still possible during May, although visitors should be prepared for some rain.
May is also a great time to head to the east coast beaches and islands of ‘The Land of Smiles’, Thailand. The weather here is good for most of the year, but rainfall increases through the latter months making May a great time to head here before the summer crowds take over and the wetter weather arrives. This is also the last chance to visit the Philippines before rainy season kicks in, so anyone wishing to make the most of its picture-perfect beaches should head there in May, while diving conditions and water temperatures are still ideal.
