Mix in a little local spice, a generous helping of romance and a breathtaking backdrop and you have the recipe for the perfect honeymoon destination. Add to that a cruise on a private junk, Buddhist monks and hidden jungle temples and you can be assured of an unforgettable journey into the heart of some of Asia’s most serene landscapes, all the while staying in some of the region’s most romantic properties.
The romance begins with a bewitching sunrise over Hanoi, where, in the company of a local photographer, you’ll capture the colour and charm of the city as it awakes. A visit to the atmospheric heritage village of Duong Lam is then followed by a cruise amongst the captivating islands of Halong Bay aboard your own private junk. Flying on to Luang Prabang, in neighbouring Laos, you’ll then experience some time enjoying the hospitality of the locals, with cookery classes, blessing ceremonies and waterfall picnics.
Next come the magical jungle temples of Siem Reap, where your unforgettable memories will be captured by a professional photographer. The climax of this enchanting adventure then takes you on to the bustling city of Saigon and the hypnotic backwaters of the Mekong Delta, where bicycle rides and boat trips provide an idyllic and lasting insight into the daily rituals of rural Vietnam.
