When we say Vietnam has it all, we mean it, and we don’t say that lightly.

It's a country that perfectly manages to jam-pack everything we love about South-East Asia into one destination; spectacular scenery, delicious food, culture, history, relaxation and, finally, unparalleled luxury. It's fairly easy to say then that anyone considering a honeymoon to Vietnam won't be disappointed.

We'll start with the scenery; whether you're meandering by boat through the dramatic and ethereal rocks and coves of Halong Bay, immersing yourself in the bustling markets of Hoi An or trekking through the Sapa Mountains, Vietnam is home to some truly spectacular sights. If there's one thing you'll be guaranteed from your Vietnam honeymoon, it's some incredible photos.

Next onto the food. Many would say Vietnam fuses the very best of South East Asian cuisine - anyone for Phở? Although we perhaps won't mention the fried tarantulas and squid teeth… oops. Lucky for you we know all the best restaurants so you can spend your honeymoon hopping from one incredible eatery to the next. Dreamy. As for culture and history, Vietnam has it in spades; the War Remnant Museum and Cu Chi tunnels are must-visits.

And relax… the coastal town of Nha Trang is home to seemingly endless stretches of palm-tree lined beaches and, with 290 days of sunshine per year, makes for a perfect relaxing stop-off between north and south.

Take advantage of our Honeymoon Gift List service! The service allows your loved ones to contribute to your Vietnam honeymoon by giving money towards the overall cost of your honeymoon.
