Vietnam offers a sensory adventure like no other! The country’s allure is well earned with an exotic blend of history, culture, natural beauty and delicious food. Well known for its long historical struggle for independence on the world stage, there is much to explore as Vietnam confidently makes its way forward. Visitors can expect an amazing amount of variety and diversity across the country. Landscapes are dramatic with white sands beaches and the crashing waves of the South China Sea on the eastern coast to rugged mountains and green forests forming the country’s western border. In between sits the red delta of the mighty Mekong, the bright green lush rice paddies and the limestone beauty of Halong Bay. These spots of natural and rural adventures mix with the country’s deep heritage and exhilarating urban environments. Visitors to Hanoi or Ho Chi Minh City will encounter the buzz of growth and development as Vietnam’s cities move quickly into the future while continuing to honour their pasts. Here old meets new: Colonial charm, unique heritage, and age-old customs are experienced alongside whizzing motorbikes, cosmopolitan locals, and glittering skylines. It is this variety and mix of energies that makes Vietnam so special. Experience the calm of a venerable pagoda or the stillness of a monument to Vietnam’s era-defining conflict before stepping back into the country’s confident modern pace. Vietnam’s unique feast for the senses is epitomised by its flavourful and delicate cuisine, which can easily be sampled at any street side or corner. An intriguing blend of rough around the edges and highly sophisticated, Vietnam is an engaging and exciting destination.
