Day 1 - Hong Kong
Hong Kong is a paradigm of contradictions. On the one hand, the city vibrates with modern commerce, soaring skyscrapers and sophistication. But at the same time, it is a land of ancient beliefs and intriguing local customs: small, gilded shrines glow with red lamps, joss sticks and fresh oranges; markets are heaped high with salted eggs, squid and every kind of medicinal root and herbal remedy imaginable; red-sailed junks and sampans ply the harbour.
Day 3 - Hue or Danang (Chan May)
Pass coastal sand dunes, verdant green hills and paddy fields en route to the historic Vietnamese cities of Hue or Da Nang. Explore the sprawling complex of temples and pavilions in Hue’s Imperial Citadel, glimpse ancient tombs and pagodas that line the shimmering Perfume River or explore the sacred caves found within the Marble Mountains.
