First four nights in the northern capital of Hanoi, followed by an internal flight to spend four nights in the southern capital Saigon (now Ho Chi Minh City), then a return flight back to your starting point of Hanoi. Two capitals when the country was divided into North Vietnam and South Vietnam. Now combined as one, you get to enjoy the contrasts between the too. Needless to say you are in the safe hands of our Holiday Houseboy, your gay friendly tour guide, who will lead the way and look after your safety and welfare at all times. With some exciting activities planned ahead.

Stretching over 3,200 kilometres in length with countless mountains, rivers, forests and beaches, Vietnam is one of Asia’s most diverse and fascinating countries. From the natural splendour and majesty of the north, to the historic charm of the central provinces Vietnam is a beautiful country.


Ha Long Bay Vietnam gay tour


Just as a freshly dripped sua dá coffee offers that sweet caffeine kick to the frontal cortex, a trip to Vietnam will inevitably knock you for six. Embodying the urban jungle; Saigon’s sassy natives squat behind fragrant vats of pho bò while epic roads cut through the scene like impassable motorised rivers.

In Vietnam, craziness is interwoven with natural beauty like nowhere else on earth, where the cheerful, forgiving perspectives of its people can cause you to re-evaluate life back home. Walk blindly into moving traffic and experience the biblical happen, or, embrace a different kind of spirituality while exploring Vietnam’s most rural shrines and temples.
