This tour offers an overview of the three most famous UNESCO Heritage sites in Vietnam Central in Hue, Hoi An and My Son. The land is known as a treasure trove of Vietnamese culture but also has a lot of favorite beaches, beautiful landmarks and interesting activities to offer to tourist. Embark on a Jeep excursion from Hue to Hoi An to enjoy the splendid view of Vietnam coastline, make use of your valuable time in the three cities and discover the beautiful landscapes and exotic culture.
Day 1 : FLY TO HUE
Welcome to Hue, a dignified and scholarly city.
Once you reach, be greeted and escorted to the hotel. Register yourself at the hotel reception and get over the jet lag. The day is at your disposal today to delight in just the way you want.
After enjoying the day, come back to the hotel for a relaxing sleep.
Day 2 : THE DIGNIFIED AND SCHOLARLY FEUDAL CAPITAL
Huế is hugely popular with travelers, and for good reasons. The city is packed full of historical elements with plenty of things to do and see, and the food is some of the best Vietnam can offer.
Surviving for 143 years with 14 emperors, the Emperors’ tombs and the Imperial City are the most impressive structure in the City.
Visit the most noticeable tombs in Hue – A huge part of this city’s history after the pick-up. Start with Khai Dinh tomb - where minarets are shaped like stupas and symbolize the stability and splendor of the old dynasty. In the Honor Courtyard you can view the sculptures of Mandarin soldiers, elephants, and horses standing proud before the Stele Pavilion. The strong stone and tremendous detail which overtakes the entire complex, including the tripartite staircase, creates an ethereal ambiance within the site.
Then visit Minh Mang tomb, the tomb had elements of eastern art mixed with western designs with majesty and symmetry of the architectural constructions. Modeled after Chinese architectural concepts, the emperor’s tomb sits within a six-square-mile complex constructed in the 19th century. The beauty of the complex is not just in its architectural marvels but also in its tranquility. Walk along the cobblestone paths, over the footbridge that feels almost level with the pond, and then climb the stairs of the double terrace to the entrance of Minh Mang’s tomb. The opulent attention to detail in the entirety of the complex brings awe along with beauty.
Break for lunch and enjoy must-try dishes that Hue can ever offer.
Continue the trip with a dragon cruise for a short excursion on Perfume river to visit Thien Mu Pagoda or the Pagoda of the Celestial Lady. The concentric hexagonal layers of the Thien Mu Pagoda create one of the oldest religious buildings in Vietnam. The faded red color wraps around the seven stories of hexagonal tiers, each one representing a step to enlightenment. The sanctuary was constructed in the 17th century and when you step through the open pillars and around the modest temple you can see the monks going about their daily tasks of cleaning and stacking wood. The scent of ginger and lemon grass drifts from the monastic buildings.
See the imperial city - Famously being one of Vietnam's seven UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Here you will find what remains of the elegant former city dating back to the 19th century. The energy is both resigned and exciting. The courtyard at the center of the complex once held the Forbidden Purple City which was accessible only to royalty, but was destroyed during the Tet Offensive in the 1960s. However, the citadel remains impressive, displaying the essence of the city’s and the country’s past within the large stone walls (over six-feet thick spanning over six-miles wrap around the entire area) and impressive moat, where the Nine Holy Cannons still act as protectorates of the palace and the kingdom.
Conclude the tour with a visit the handicraft village – Conical hat village - a traditional symbol of Vietnamese people without age, sex or racial distinctions before our see off at your hotel of stay.
Day 3 : ABOVE THE CLOUD AND TO THE ANCIENT TRADING PORT
History and culture are certainly the main attractions in the central Vietnam, but if you're after something different, there is a scenic drive from Hue to Hoi An via the magnificent Hai Van Pass which will definitely add some adventure thrill onto your itinerary.
The day begins with a delicate breakfast which highlights the energizing taste and aroma of Vietnamese coffee. Soon you will venture outside of Hue and find yourself in the middle of many beautiful villages near Tam Giang Lagoon.
Stop by the Lang Co Bay for lunch before ascending the windy road to the highest peak of Hai Van Pass - The Ocean and Cloud Pass. Like its name, the pass is a perfect view point where you can spread the vision over the whole Vietnam Central. Crossing the Pass you are literally surrounded by clouds on one side and stunning ocean views on the other. The jade of the lush trees and grass rises and falls along the landscape of the mountains, sloping downward towards the South China Sea, and brings the emerald land to the edge of the sapphire water.
Drive along the beach of My Khe in Da Nang which lead us to our final stop of Marble Mountain - a cluster of five hills made from limestone and marble in Da Nang. Also a well-known pilgrimage site with peaks, caves, tunnels.
End the safari in Hoi An oldtown with the flickering light of paper lanterns twinkling along the streets and overnight at your hotel in Hoi An Old Town.
Day 4 : MY SON & HOI AN ANCIENT TOWN
Riding against the current of time, from the breezing Ancient Town of Hoi An, through the bumpy tracks between the green fields, heading to a place that time has stood still for 1600 years, My Son Sanctuary of the ancient Cham Pa Kingdom.
Arrive at My Son Sanctuary and be greeted by the sounds of Cham music filling the air, here we stop to take-in the vibrantly dressed dancers enjoying a traditional dance performance before starting your walking up hill to the ancient ruins.
Explore the area with the detailed explanation about the history of the religious site which served as a burial site for the Cham monarchs many centuries ago.
When you arrive within the exposed red coloration of the structures in the clearing you can hear the gurgling streams around them. From the 4th to the 15th centuries the culture was dedicated to a spiritual Hinduism of Indian ancestry. The towers stand with a blend of styles, from Hoa Lai to Dong Duong and the largest tower, standing over 72 feet tall, is a wonder of Cham architecture. Two doors on the east and west sides allow access while the body is delicate with paved pillars and six smaller towers around it resembling a lotus flower. From the ambiance to the architecture, the remains of the empire are spectacular.
Leave My Son and head back to Hoi An for lunch.
After lunch, enjoy a walking tour in Hoi An Ancient Town – a UNESCO World heritage site. Our guide will lead you through the well-kept historic district of this once – prosperous seaport city. We follow the narrow lanes lined with centuries-old houses influenced by Chinese, Japanese, French and European architectures, and visit its numerous places of interest: the 400-year old Japanese Covered Bridge, the Phuc Kien Assembly Halls, the local fish market.
