Our tours start in Saigon (HCMC), with her million scooters, where simply crossing a road is a huge challenge. A stroll down Dong Khoi Street, with its alluring silk stores is sure to set the pace. We end our Tour in Hanoi. “Our tours are aimed at taking a glimpse into the French Colonial Splendor of an era, where clearly opulence was the order of the day. We’ll meet chefs, photographers, authors, bamboo boat makers, potters, get to stay in amazing 5* luxury French Architectural hotels – Park Hyatt, La Residence, Metropole Sofitel Hanoi, Ana Mandara Six Senses to name a few. Plenty of time for Spa treatments/ shop. Good morning Vietnam!”, said Mrs. Jean Wethmar – Co-founder of The Cape Club and a Colonial Romantic.
