Military history and chaotic street scenes resonate with most when we think about Vietnam. Look deeper and you’ll find friendly and welcoming people eager to invite you to discover the many wonders of their homeland. This land is astonishingly exotic and utterly compelling —lush green mountains, a pristine coastline, majestic national parks—along with buzzing cities and fascinating cultural sites. These provide stunning backdrops for Nicklaus, Player, Norman and Montgomerie trademark golf course designs.
This luxury tour celebrates three uniquely distinct cities. While Ho Chi Minh City will enthrall you with its energy and sophistication, Hanoi will dazzle you with its culture and flavours, and the elegant and graceful port of Hoi An will totally charm you. Not only is one of Vietnam’s most prized treasures, the spectacular World Heritage listed Halong Bay, on the itinerary; so are visits to Long Tan, Nui Dat and the infamous Cu Chi tunnels.
The best golf courses have been handpicked for you to play including The Bluffs Ho Tram, Vietnam’s #1 golf course. Smiling caddies will be there to pamper you. For non-golfers, this tour serves up a smorgasbord of delights that include the Mekong Delta, Hue and Duaong Lam Ancient Villages. The golfers will envy your tales of discovery.
