Jane Anderson, Honeymoon expert Jane's verdict
From buzzing Hanoi and Saigon to rural paddy fields and white sand beaches, Vietnam is an inspired choice for a honeymoon. There’s culture, nightlife, cookery classes in street food, gourmet dining, colonial hotels and jaw-dropping romantic gems like the Six Senses Con Dao. A Chinese junk cruise on Halong Bay is one of my ultimate do-before-you-die experiences.

Year-round sunshine, a welcoming colourful culture, enigmatic landscapes, and cuisine that will send your tastebuds spinning – is it any wonder that Vietnam is one of our most popular honeymoon destinations?

  • Tailor-made honeymoons
  • Fantastic food & culture
  • Unique experiences

Our Vietnam specialists can tailor a honeymoon precisely to your tastes and preferences, whether that’s laid-back light adventure through lush countryside, cycling the Mekong Delta, or eating your way through Hoi An on a Vespa foodie night-tour.

We want your honeymoon to show you the very best of Vietnam, so our specialists travel there regularly (much nicer than in an office!), seeking out the less-visited corners, and discovering alternatives to the busy tourist spots. 

Vietnam is rich with boutique and luxury hotels, along with a wealth of immersive experiences that will take you deep into the culture and landscapes. What’s more, it’s sunny here all year round, with the best months falling between November and March.

Our personally-inspected range of resorts and hotels ranges from charmingly simple lodges and authentic homestays, budget-conscious hidden jewels like the Hoi An Chic Green Retreat, to plush boutique hotels and luxurious resorts such as the Fusion Maia in Danang, or if you’re looking for the creme-de-la-creme, the super-deluxe Six Senses Con Dao.

We’ve created a handful of suggested itineraries to whet your appetite, but our honeymoons are bespoke, to fit your exact specifications, budget and timings.

Our two week Vietnam in Style private tour is packed with the classic highlights of Vietnam – it’s the perfect balance of sightseeing and relaxing in luxury. After some time exploring Hanoi, there’s an idyllic cruise on Halong Bay, a few days discovering Hoi An’s coastline and architecture, a stop in Ho Chi Minh City, and all topped off with three nights in Con Dao.

If your dream is to really immerse yourself in Vietnam, check out Vietnam: Beyond the Ordinary– a unique private journey taking you well off the beaten track, from rural villages to trekking in national parks, staying in a mix of eco-lodges, homestays, and charming small hotels.

Vietnam at Ease is the ideal choice for a great value honeymoon, combining classic highlights with some seriously relaxing downtime.

Vietnam also works superbly when combined with other countries in the region – the awe-inspiring temples of Angkor in Cambodia, for example, on this two-country honeymoon.

We are experts at arranging the extras that make a honeymoon magical, and our dependable network of suppliers throughout the country enable us to arrange practically anything. You just have to ask – a cooking class in Hoi An, exploring the Mekong Delta aboard a private sampan, or a private gourmet meal in a rice field for example.
