  combination Thailand-Vietnam  


A land of contrasts whose rich history, people and landscapes will excite the imagination of all who visit. Together they form a melting-pot slowly blended over time. The diversity and natural wealth of this amazing land are spread throughout its three thousand kilometres of coastline.

This country poses many questions – where to start, where to finish and how & when to plan another visit. The Butler Company has a partner who shares its values, experts who love to create tailor-made holidays that will take you from one surprise to the next and guide you through the trip of your dreams.

So, where to start? The Red River Delta? With the proud people of the mountains bordering China? In beautiful Hanoi? You holiday may resemble the country’s history and landscape, shaped by the countryside and the people you meet. Different cultures overlap in time; from ancient imperial capitals to small fishing villages, from the Hindu influenced islands of the kingdom of Cham to the rich aroma of the coffee grown on the plateaus. The only constant is that it will all enthrall you.

After following the “backbone” of the country, you reach the southern part of Vietnam where the colours burst into life; laughter can be heard along the lush, green creeks of the delta and in the markets and villages. The heat is more intense and Saigon hums like a “beehive” where your soul will be touched by almost everything you see. You may choose to finish your holiday lying on the silent beaches of the South, with the gently breaking waves being the only sound you hear.
