THIS COMPETITION HAS NOW CLOSED.
Summer might be on the way out but we’ve teamed up with luxury travel specialists Abercrombie & Kent to help you beat the blues. Together, we’re giving you and a friend the chance to win a 10-day whirlwind adventure through colourful Vietnam. The A&K guys are expert at creating unique itineraries in far-flung locations; they know all the local hangouts and insider spots, helping you to go above and beyond the ordinary. With plenty of time to explore on your own too, just take a look at what they’ve lined up for the lucky winner…
You’ll touchdown in Hanoi, the country’s vibrant capital where you’ll learn about Vietnam’s history, visit temples and whizz around on the back of a vintage Vespa getting stuck into the city’s street food scene – think spring rolls, pho and noodles galore.
Next, it’s off to the rural district of Mai Chau, a world away from the bustling city, to stroll through lush landscapes, meet locals (and their buffalo) and experience the simple life of Vietnam’s peaceful villages.
Then it’s back into the throng with two days in the colonial port town of Hoi An, a melting pot of cultures where Japanese merchant houses and pagodas jostle alongside Chinese temples and ancient warehouses. This World Heritage city is the place to get kitted out with some tailored clothing and gorge on local cuisine such as banh mi and dumplings. But if you’d rather spend your days simply lounging at a café on the banks of the Thu Bon River, so be it.
Finally, you’ll hit the modern metropolis of Ho Chi Minh, where you’ll take in the sights with an early morning cycle ride through Tao Dan Park, followed by a tour of the city’s lively food and flower markets. In the evening, get involved with Saigon’s latest craze for craft brewing with a visit to several microbreweries.
