Dreaming of the trip of a lifetime packed with outdoor adventures, rich culture, fascinating history and gorgeous weather?
Then you might want to apply for our latest travel competition.
The lucky winner and one guest will spend seven nights in the luxurious surroundings of the Angsana Lang Co hotel in central Vietnam. The prize includes accommodation in the hotel’s junior pool suite for two people, as well as shuttle transfers to and from the airport (flights not included).
Nestled in the foothills of the Truong Sang mountains, Angsana Lang Co overlooks a gorgeous three-kilometre private sandy beach on a crescent bay, making it the perfect base to explore Thua Thien Hue Province and beyond.
For those who want to get out on the crystal blue ocean, the hotel offers a raft of watersports, from kayaking and windsurfing to sailboat rides and stand-up paddleboarding. The winner and their guest will be taken on a jet-ski safari, zooming past hidden lagoons and tranquil fishing villages.
Or explore the region’s stunning tropical scenery – think lush green hills, tiny villages and rice fields – on wheels. Bicycle fans can ride along the Hai Van Pass, an ancient highway spanning mountains, or take a thrilling ATV quad bike excursion.
Guests will enjoy a complimentary breakfast every day, plus a beachside dinner for two one evening during their stay.
And if you feel like you’ll need a fix of history and culture after all that exertion, guests can also enjoy day trips to two incredible ancient cities – both UNESCO Heritage Sites.
Wind your way along the canals and narrow streets of the Ancient Town in Hoi An, a former 15th century trading port whose breathtaking architecture reflects the city’s Chinese, Japanese and European influences.
Next, explore the Imperial City, a walled fortress and palace in Hue. The former imperial capital, Hue was Vietnam’s political, cultural and religious centre until 1945 – but it’s also a place of incredible natural beauty, lying beneath Ngu Binh Mountain and divided by the Perfume River.
To be in with a chance of winning this incredible trip, all you have to do is upload a photo of your favourite moment in the great outdoors to Instagram, follow and tag both @stylistmagazine and @angsanahotels in the photo, and use the hashtag #GreatOutdoors – the theme of this month’s Stylist Instagram competition.
We’ll post our favourite snaps on Stylist’s Instagram page regularly until the end of July. The Stylist social media panel will then choose one overall winner from the photos we’ve showcased to win the holiday to Vietnam at the end of the month.
The winner will be a standout, beautiful and creative snap that really captures the theme of the #GreatOutdoors.
Don't have an #GreatOutdoors snap handy? Don't worry, we'll be running the Stylist travel Instagram competition all this year, with a different travel theme each month. So whether you're a ski enthusiast or a die-hard foodie, there'll be an opportunity for you to win one of our fantastic wanderlust-themed prizes. Stay tuned on stylist.co.uk/travel for more details.
