Days 1-2: Fly to Saigon, arriving on October 13. You will skip over a day because of the international date line. A shuttle will take us directly to the Caravelle Hotel--one of the finest hotels in the city and a nice place to recover from jet-lag. Depending on your arrival time, we can arrange for a brief city tour.
Day 3: Fly to Danang and transfer to the Furama Resort at China Beach - the spot where US troops went for R&R. The Furama is considered to be one of the best hotels in all of Vietnam.
Day 4: Day trip to the charming town of Hoi An - one of the few ancient cities in Central Vietnam that was spared destruction in the war. In addition to its rich cultural history, Hoi An is famous for its clothing shops that can custom tailor silk clothing to any design you want in just a few hours.
