Astonishingly exotic and utterly compelling, Vietnam is a country of breathtaking natural beauty with a unique heritage, where travel quickly becomes addictive. Since the bloody war ended, Vietnam has changed itself so much over within a short span of time. This resilient nation is beckon of hope. The days when Vietnam was best known for its conflict with America are long gone, now the country is known for its beaches, plodded rice terraces, bustling cities, Buddhist pagoda and floating markets on the Mekong River. From the temples of Hanoi and the island of Halong Bay to the beaches of Nha Trang and the places of Hue Vietnam is country imprinted in the travel psyche.
Many visitors find a vast number of places to visit that intrigue and excite them in Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City and the other major centres; but despite the cities’ allure, it’s the country’s striking landscape that most impresses. To the north and south of its narrow waist, it fantails out into the splendid deltas of the Red River and the Mekong, and it’s in these regions that you’ll encounter the paddy fields, dragonflies, buffaloes and conical-hatted farmers that constitute the classic image of Vietnam.
