About Vietnam …
Vietnam is rapidly developing but holds onto the charming traditions and culture which make it such a fascinating holiday destination.
Northern Vietnam boasts some of the country’s most spectacular scenery with soaring mountains, forested limestone karsts and cascading rice terraces. The capital city Hanoi bears the traces of centuries of change in its wide Parisian boulevards and colourful Chinese temples. The seascape of Halong Bay is a magical sight; breathtaking rock pinnacles rise dramatically from the sea and floating villages sit languidly in the bay.
Central Vietnam offers historical cities and sweeping beaches – Hue, the old imperial capital; the UNESCO-listed city of Hoi An with its uniquely well-preserved streets; and the golden shorelines of the thriving modern city of Danang.
The Mekong Delta is blessed with lush fertile land where villagers in traditional conical hats work in vibrant green rice paddies and traditional boats with dragons’ eyes ply the murky waters. Ho Chi Minh City’s wartime past is displayed at the Cu Chi Tunnels and War Remnants Museum but this vast metropolis is also full of modern bars, shops and restaurants.
Head out into the rugged scenery surrounding Sapa to discover villages only accessible on foot. Stay in local homestays to experience the hospitality of the ethnic minorities. Dine on the local ‘hot pot’ specialty – a hearty meat stew perfect for the colder winter nights.
