About this trip

WELCOME TO VIETNAM
Exciting and compelling, exotic and unforgettable—all these words describe Vietnam. A complex culture with an even more complex history, this country is a fascinating labyrinth begging to be explored. The natural beauty of the landscape spans sensory-overloading cities, the backwaters of the Mekong Delta, and ancient towns and temples which evoke a bygone era. Vietnam will capture your interest from the moment you arrive. 


Our 10-night/11-day wellness vacation begins in the South Vietnamese city of Saigon taking us through the Mekong Delta, and ending in the ancient town of Hoi An. There is no better way to explore Vietnam than with locals, and the country is the maternal homeland of our wellness guide and Mindfulness-Based Psychotherapist Lena Franklin. Co-hosted by best-selling author and Pravassa founder Linden Schaffer, it will be our pleasure to have you join us for a #changedbytravel journey through Vietnam.

Itinerary

March 26 | DAY 1
Ho Chi Minh City (dinner)

WELCOME TO HO CHI MINH CITY

Saigon (as it’s known to the locals) is located in South Vietnam. Its rich history is influenced by the people, religions, cultures, languages, and culinary traditions of those who have inhabited the land: Cambodian, French, and Chinese. This thriving modern city is the largest in the country, with a population of 8.4 million (and an estimated 7.4 million motorbikes). Experience the charming chaos of Saigon as you explore markets, pagodas, and delicious cuisine.

Upon arrival you’ll be met at Saigon airport and led promptly through customs with Pravassa VIP arrival and visa service. From here, a private group transfer will take you to the hotel in District 1, the hippest center of Saigon. Check in and head to the local pagoda for evening prayers and the opportunity to get to know our fellow travelers with a mindful welcome. The group will sit together at the hotel for a first curated wellness dinner.
