I loved having the balance between sightseeing and golfing. I have always wanted to tick Vietnam off my bucket list of places to go and to also go on a golf trip – I did both with the one trip.
Jane, Vietnam 2019
Loved the country and the people. The golf courses were fantastic, better than expected… loved the Ba Na Hills golf course – it was a standout. The trip was well planned and the accommodation was great.

Vietnam was a lovely destination with very welcoming people. The food was great and I would recommend anyone to visit. The cruise on Halong Bay was definitely one to tick off the bucket list and Hoi An was gorgeous. All of the courses were spectacular.
