Experience the charm, culture and chaos of this fast-developing country
Vietnam has it all: incredible natural diversity, dynamic cities and people who are extremely fun to be around. Visit the north, central and south for very different experiences of this endlessly fascinating land. No matter where you go, one thing is certain: you’re in for an adventure. Thanks to the country’s wide-ranging geography, visitors can explore a wealth of breathtaking landscapes. Hike lush green rice terraces in Sapa, climb sand dunes in Mui Ne and kayak amid limestone karsts in Halong Bay. The S-shaped country has more than 2000km of coastline, the region’s highest mountains and some of the world’s largest cave systems.
Sip strong, sweet coffee in the chaotic, enchanting maze of Hanoi’s Old Quarter or explore the French colonial museums of Ho Chi Minh City. See Confucian temples, dodge motorbikes and devour hot, fragrant broths filled with fresh noodles. Get a sense of imperial Vietnam in Hue, get a custom-tailored suit in quaint Hoi An and stay with one of the country’s ethnic minority hill tribes. The list of must-sees in Vietnam is long. Be sure to give yourself enough time to squeeze everything in.
