Experience Vietnam with just one stop from Prague
Hanoi, the ancient capital, still retains much of its French colonial charm amid the hustle and bustle of one of South East Asia’s largest cities.
On the other hand, Ho Chi Minh City (formerly Saigon) in the south is even more frenetic place, where you’ll be assaulted by the sights, smells and sounds of this hectic city of 8 ½ million people.
Here you’ll find some of the most luxurious hotels, fanciest restaurants and tastiest street food in the country.
As well as its daily Prague-Dubai-Ho Chi Minh City service, from 1 July Emirates passengers travelling to Hanoi
no longer needed to stop in Yangon before reaching the Vietnamese capital, which now saves up to 2 ½ hours of travel time.
When in Ho Chi Minh City enjoy the French Quarter’s wide-open streets, majestic buildings and high-end hotels, restaurants and shops, or take some time out to visit Hanoi´s Temple of Literature,
a place of study and contemplation dedicated to Confucius, and Hoan Kiem Lake, where just after sunrise you’ll find locals practicing tai chi.
For a more relaxing time, head to northern Vietnam and Halong Bay, a Unesco World Heritage Site whose collection of more than 3,000 limestone karsts jut out of a serene lagoon, interspersed with islands
where you’ll find some of the world’s most unspoilt beaches.
Even before arriving in Vietnam, passengers of Emirates can enjoy regionally inspired cuisine served on board with meals made using the freshest, locally sourced ingredients, with new menus updated every month.
