13 Days/12 Nights
Hanoi, located in northern Vietnam, is the capital city and home to most government complexes and embassies. Not the financial hub of its fellow city in the south, Saigon, Hanoi is known for its rich culture, maintaining traditions, and rich heritage. Hanoi is very unique to any other South East Asian city. There are hardly any skyscrapers, most buildings are old and have been maintained over time, which means there are lots of great places to see, have a bowl of Pho soup, relax at and have a coffee at.
The main parts of Hanoi are The Old Quarter and The French Quarter, both of which are side by side which makes it an excellent city for tourists. The area can be traversed on foot, and with so many small roads and different avenues, one could wander through Hanoi for hours and never get bored. In the evening, the area around Hoan Kiem Lake in The Old Quarter comes alive, with some excellent spots to have a beer, great dining options, and some festivals and markets that pop up.
The golf in and around Hanoi is spectacular, with the courses set in the forested hills on the outskirts of town. This provides lots of undulation, excellent vistas across the valleys, and challenging golf.
After spending some time in Hanoi, head 3 hours east to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Ha Long Bay. This is a must-see when visiting northern Vietnam. Spend some time on a boat cruising the bay, take in the sites of over 1,000 limestone formations coming out from the emerald coloured water, and relax under the stars with a nice drink. This is coupled perfectly with a round at the stunning FLC Ha Long Bay Golf Club, which has amazing views over the bay while playing your round.
