DescriptionMeet your private, English-speaking guide at your port of choice who will be waiting for you with a smile and welcome sign. Hop into a comfortable air-conditioned vehicle to begin your exploration of this culturally rich region. Make your first stop at the Citadel where the last king of Vietnam, Bao Dai, stepped down in 1945. See the ancient moat and thick stone walls which surround the ancient site. The vast Citadel encompasses the Imperial City, Forbidden Purple City and the Royal Theatre, so you will have the chance to stretch your legs during a morning of exploration. Next, make your way well off the tourist track and visit some locals. Meet the inspiring Ms Thuy who specialises in making Vietnam's world famous conical hats. Gain a fascinating insight into rural Vietnam and the skill involved in conical hat making. Learn about the interesting life of this friendly and open woman. Continue on to the tomb of King Tu Duc, the most popular and impressive of all the royal mausoleums. It houses courtyards, pavilions, temples, and chambers. Your tour guide will tell you all about its fascinating history and the king's life of imperial luxury, from his 104 wives to the unfortunate ending of his 200 burial servants. Then visit Bunker Hill which overlooks the Perfume River and boasts amazing panoramic views. The area served as a great military vantage point by providing secret observation posts for the surrounding territory. Many bunkers still remain so you'll have the chance to get up close and investigate them. Stop for lunch at a serene nunnery pagoda. Head off to your next destination: Tiger Arena, an ancient colosseum where tigers and elephants would fight to the death for royal entertainment. Finally, stop at the iconic 7-storey Thien Mu Pagoda. Board a classic dragon boat and cruise down the Perfume River back towards the city, where your guide will take you back to your port in plenty of time for departure.
