Tips from Oliver

I have visited Vietnam myself, as has my colleague Nicola. Between us both we can advise on the best options and piece together the perfect trip.

Vietnamese Grand Prix 2020

Race Day: 5th April 2020 

We are thrilled by Formula One’s announcement that a brand new Formula One Grand Prix will be staged in Hanoi, Vietnam in 2020. Packages are now on sale for this much anticipated F1 race in 2020!

In 2019, Formula One formerly announced that the city of Hanoi will host the F1 Vietnamese Grand Prix in April 2020. The race will be staged on the 5.57km, 22 turn Hanoi Motor Sport Circuit. Designed by Tilke Engineers & Architects in partnership with F1’s own Motorsports team, the circuit borrows heavily from iconic tracks like Suzuka and Nurburgring.

We are offering two standard packages for this event – a five night stay in Hanoi or a 8 night stay which includes 4 nights in Hanoi for the Vietnamese Grand Prix plus 4 further nights in Hoi An, on Vietnam’s east coast, with its palm-fringed and well-preserved UNESCO World Heritage ancient town.
