Vietnam is a country of breath-taking natural beauty with an incredible modern day history that quickly becomes addictive. It has experienced war and a bloody revolution in the past 100 years, but the revolution now underway is peaceful and prosperous. The speed of the modern day changes is making Vietnam the absorbing and gripping place that it is today.
Everywhere you turn in Vietnam you will encounter memorable experiences, from the stunning limestone islands from the deck of a Chinese junk in Halong Bay to crawling through the Cu Chi tunnels: taking 10 minutes to cross the street in Hanoi to watching a moped over loaded with chickens wobbling along uneven country roads: tasting the changing flavours of Vietnamese cooking to sampling more western cuisine – with a Vietnamese twist.
Vietnam has something to offer everyone, so whether you are a culture vulture, thrill seeker or just looking to relax and take in the beaches, Vietnam won’t disappoint.
