Christina Tunnah, general manager of marketing and brands, World Nomads, says Vietnam has been a popular destination since the launch of World Nomads.

Founded in 1989, Intrepid Travel is the world's largest B-Corp-certified travel company and a leader in responsible, ethical small-group trips.

Louise Laing, Intrepid Travel's general manager of marketing ANZ, said: "Intrepid's 'Vietnam Express Southbound' trip is one of our most popular trips, taking travellers from Hanoi south to Ho Chi Minh City, visiting iconic places such as Halong Bay, Hoi An and the Mekong Delta. We're delighted to partner with World Nomads to offer this great prize. This 10-day tour is packed with adventure.

"You'll sail on a wooden junk across Halong Bay, take an overnight train to Hue and paddle a sampan along the Mekong Delta."

Ms Tunnah said: "This is a perfect introduction to Vietnam. Whether you are interested in Vietnam's ancient culture, want to immerse yourself in its vibrant cities or sample authentic Vietnamese food – it's all here."

The 10-day 'Vietnam Express Southbound' tour includes accommodation, tours and other activities, plus travel within Vietnam and some meals. The prize winners will also receive $US1,650 towards the cost of flights, $US750 spending money thanks to Adventure Travel and travel clothing from Toad&Co to the value of $US500, plus $US200 towards the cost of travel insurance.
