Although we most recently toured Vietnam by cruise ship, it’s more common to do a land-based itinerary. With a deep history, distinctive regional culinary traditions, sophisticated cities and sybaritic coastal resorts, the country is a destination all on its own, as reflected in the suggested routing below. Of course, Vietnam is also easy to connect with neighboring Cambodia and Laos (a “greatest hits” itinerary could include Hanoi, Hue, Hoi An, Ho Chi Minh City, Siem Reap and Luang Prabang, for example). Vietnam is justly famed for its street food, but a notable fine-dining scene has also developed. (At the time of this writing, Michelin is preparing to release guides to Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City, home to creative, high-end restaurants well deserving of stars).
