From the glorious white-sand beaches of Phu Quoc island to the tree-lined boulevards of colonial-era Hanoi

Start the holiday at Fusion Phu Quoc: a bright hideaway on the coast of Vietnam's Phu Quoc island, where all villas have their own swimming pool and tropical garden. During the eight nights here, zone out at the Maia spa, where two complimentary treatments are provided each day, including homemade scrubs and massages using oils distilled from locally grown ingredients. There's also a steam room and sauna, and a programme of yoga, t'ai chi and meditation classes.

The final two nights are spent at Essence Hanoi, a brilliantly located bolthole in the city's lively historic quarter. Explore its colourful stalls and alleys, take a tour of the Hoa Lu temples, then refuel at the hotel's restaurant with delicious dishes such as sautéed shrimp with tamarind fish sauce. This is a brilliant chance to experience some of Vietnam's most exciting locations.

    Hanoi city life

    Brown Cannon / Intersection Photos

    Hop on an internal flight from Phu Quoc to Hanoi. Check into Essence Hanoi, a bolthole brilliantly located in the city's lively old quarter. Explore the warren of streets full of colourful stalls, honking scooters and conical hat-wearing street vendors who balance baskets on their shoulders and power-walk their wares around.

    Each street specialises in a different type of shop: to buy good Vietnamese coffee try Hang Giay street, for silk scarves explore Hang Gai street and for traditional handicrafts and art galleries Hang Be street is a good bet.

    Hanoi's chaotic, characterful old quarter thrums with life whatever time of day so a stay here puts you right at the heart of the action.
