2010-06-18 (GMT + 7)

Virtuoso, a leading luxury travel network in the United States, has unveiled Vietnam and Cambodia as among the 30 Top Honeymoons because of their rich history, culture and romance based on the selection by its experienced honeymoon specialists.

Virtuoso also posts ‘Romantic Southeast Asia’ honeymoon packages at the luxury resort The Nam Hai in the central province of Quang Nam and the high-end hotel Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi in the capital city.
“We’re in the midst of a remarkable journey,” said Herbert Laubichler-Pichler, general manager of The Nam Hai. “From all over the world, people are dropping into this region for a distinguished honeymoon.”
The nine-night promotion journey to Vietnam and Cambodia including stays at The Nam Hai and the  Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi, and Hotel de la Paix in Cambodia’s Siem Reap cost US$8,096 per couple.
Available through December 19, 2010, the package includes nine nights’ accommodation, daily breakfast for two, experience a traditional Buddhist blessing ceremony performed by local monks that
reside in the beautiful pagoda of Wat Damnak that is said to bring good fortune to married life, sightseeing with local English speaking guides, all transfers.
The trip is arranged by TravelCorp International’s Luke Breaux, one of 24 featured Virtuoso honeymoon specialists and the U.S.-based consultant with 15 years of arranging memorable itineraries for visitors to Southeast Asia. Regional tour operator, Trails of Indochina, takes care of the ground transportation.
Laubichler-Pichler said Vietnam and Cambodia possessed a kind of cultural and exotic appeal that people were unable to find anywhere else. “Between its abundance of UNESCO World Heritage sites, dramatic beaches and world-class accommodation, the region has everything a couple could want.”
Located on 35 hectares of landscaped tropical gardens, The Nam Hai is a GHM-managed property featuring 60 one-bedroom villas and 40 pool villas ranging from one to five bedrooms, each with its own infinity pool.
Opened as early as in 1901, Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi reigns as the Grande Dame of Vietnamese hospitality and one of Southeast Asia’s most iconic hotels. Last year, the hotel became the first in the Sofitel portfolio to acquire Accor’s Legend brand distinction.
