Our tailor-made service costs you no extra

This itinerary is designed to work straight off the peg, but we'll happily tailor it until it's a perfect fit for you, to ensure we’re making the absolute best of your time and funds. All you need to do is ask...

Your own private guides & drivers

You'll typically have your own private guides & drivers throughout your trip. When you will be sharing a service (eg a boat cruise) with others, we'll always let you know. 

We only provide privately guided holidays - meaning that you will not be expected to share guides or transport for the duration of your visit. You can also start on any day you choose.

  • Looking for a more up-and-coming beach destination? Consider the island of Phu Quoc, lying off the very southern tip of the Mekong Delta. Formerly Cambodian territory, the island is the size of Singapore, and boasts mile after mile of deserted sand. Phu Quoc works well as an additional stop or with a shorter stay in Hoi An. It's also an especially good option during Hoi An's wet season - late August to early January.
  • Too much beach time? A Mekong Delta extension is always popular> Just drop a night or two on the beaches of Hoi An to make time for a tour through the network of waterways running to the southern most region of the Vietnam. 
  • Whilst in Hue, visit the Duc Son Buddhist Pagoda located just a few kilometres out of town, and home to around 200 orphans. Selective Asia are proud to support both the orphanage and pagoda, and your visit will allow you to gain a better understanding of the plight of the children who call it home. During your visit you will have the chance to help the children with their foreign language studies, and to meet the nuns who provide their full time care.
  • Spend a morning at the famous Red Bridge Cooking School. Start your morning with a guided visit to a local market before taking a boat along the Hoi An River to Red Bridge. Learn to create some of Vietnam's famous dishes before enjoying your creations for lunch. Please note; there will be other guests joining you at the cooking school.
  • During the Vietnam-American war, 5kms on either side of the Ben Hai River became known as the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ), dividing North and South Vietnam. The southern section of the DMZ in particular saw some of the conflict's bloodiest battles. Visit the DMZ on a day trip from Hue, taking in key war sites such as the Ben Hai River, Hien Luong Bridge and the tunnels at Vinh Moc.
At Selective Asia we specialise in creating unique, tailor-made experiences. The holiday itineraries provided on this website are intended to help you visualise what is achievable in your destinations of choice, over a given period of time and at an intended budget.

This is when our tailor-made specialists come into their own; with many years of experience both living and working in the region, they are ideally equipped to advise on alternatives and to facilitate any necessary changes.

Please note: During high season periods (such as Christmas and New Year) hotels often levy a surcharge and these are not included in the above prices. Your consultant will be happy to advise you of these.
