Meet and greet at your hotel at 8.00am. Today we discover Hanoi, Vietnam's gracious capital. Hanoi has been the political and historical centre of Vietnam for almost 1000 years and has a wealth of sights to explore. Heavily influenced by French colonial architecture, Hanoi is both historically beautiful and a vibrant capital city sure to entice you. We begin our Hanoi experience at the Old Quarter, cycling along beautiful tree-lined boulevards until we get to Ba Dinh Square, site of the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum and where Ho Chi Minh first declared independence from French rule in 1945. Ho Chi Minh is without question one of the great figures of twentieth century history and this morning we'll take time to visit the 'Ho Chi Minh Quarter' for a look at the life of the father of modern Vietnam. We visit the humble house on stilts from which 'Uncle Ho', as he is affectionately known, ruled Vietnam until his death in 1969. We'll also view the Presidential Palace and One Pillar Pagoda and continue our tour by visiting Hanoi's first university - the Temple of Literature - dating back to 1070. This historical centre of learning is dedicated to Confucian worship.

On arrival you will be guided through the famous tunnels used by the communist guerrillas during the Vietnam War. The tunnel network stretches over 250km and extends to three levels underground providing you with a remarkable insight into the hardships, courage, determination and terror of a guerrilla war. Leaving Cu Chi Tunnels, continue on traveling south My Tho, the gateway to the Mekong Delta. From My Tho, you board the boat and travel to one of the islands located in the middle of the Mekong River. On the island visit a fruit orchard and sample some of the local produce, before boarding a smaller sampan that winds along narrow canals.

Day 6 title: Angkor full day

Day 6 meals: B

Day 6 overnight: Angkor Paradise Hotel - Deluxe room (for package only)

Day 6 description:

The temples of Angkor represent six hundred years (802-1432) of Khmer civilisation - one of Asia's greatest kingdoms. You will dedicate the whole day to exploring the most magnificent of the Angkor temples.

The adventure begins with a pre dawn departure from the hotel (4.30 to 5.00am depending on the time of year) for sunrise outside Angkor Wat. You will board your tuk-tuks (this is a form of local transport with a small motorised cart, a roof and comfortable seating) for the short ride to Angkor Wat and the little visited Eastern side of the great temple. Creep through the temple in darkness (please bring a torch) past the longest stretch of bas-relief carvings in the world before soaking up the atmosphere of dawn at Angkor from the edge of one of the ancient library pools. Then you will venture deep into the central chambers and up to the upper terraces of this truly great temple, spending a thorough two hours exploring here. Conclude your touring at Angkor with breakfast outside the temple (take away from your hotel), and a short rest. Then move onto the West gate of the walled city of Angkor Thom and marvel at the eerie stone heads and evocative bas-reliefs of the Bayon temple and the Terraces of the Elephants and Leper King. Lunch break and then set out again by Tuk-Tuk to jungle-enveloped Ta Prohm, one of the most atmospheric of all temples in Angkor. Once home to 2,740 monks, Ta Prohm today looks much as it did in the early 1850's, when French explorer Henri Mouhot rediscovered this crumbling site. The jungle enshrouded ruins at this special temple are reminiscent of Indiana Jones and were used in the filming of Tomb Raider. The corridors and temple buildings make a great place for a wander or a game of hide and seek! Spend the rest of the afternoon at Angkor Wat. Angkor Wat is a World Heritage Site since 1992, renowned for its beauty and splendor. Angkor Wat features the longest continuous bas-relief in the world, which runs along the outer gallery walls and narrates stories from Hindu mythology. Angkor Wat was a temple dedicated to the Hindu God - Vishnu. It was constructed over a period of 30 years by King Suryavarman II, who reigned between 1131 and 1151. Depending on your choice, we can view sunset from Angkor Wat or Bakheng. Return to your hotel.
