Vietnam Yacht Charter / An Unforgettable Vacation
Steeped in history, a yacht charter in Vietnam can offer an unforgettable vacation. Bicycle-clad streets, rice fields, dusty cities, a postcard-pretty shoreline and delectable food.The east coastline of Vietnam runs for 3,260 kilometers (not including its islands) meaning it is a fantastic cruising ground. Starting in the bustling south and Ho Chi Minh City or Saigon as it was formally known, this city is a hotchpotch of old versus new; from a cityscape of high-end five-star hotels to the cheapest hostels; boutique designer stores to chaotic local markets and Michelin star quality food to street stalls. Ho Chi Ming City is a sprawling metropolis whose zest for improvement and enhancement is infectious. No yacht charter is complete without a stop in the party capital of Nha Trang. Set in the midst of forest-clad hills, a half moon-shaped beach and turquoise waters, this town is picture perfect for partying the night away and sunbathing the days away. There are also a few islands dotted around here perfect for diving or snorkelling day trips. Hoi An and the Lao Cham islands are a great place to stop for some quiet reflection. Dotted with shrines and temples, mixed in with high-end retreats Hoi An is perfect for some relaxation. The eight islands of Lao Cham offer paradise beaches and secluded coves.To the north of the country is Halong Bay. This bay is world famous for its outstanding natural beauty. Dotted with over 3000 limestone karsts and islands rising out of the Gulf of Tonkin, just sailing in this region is a marvel.
