Overview for Vietnam
The far north is stunning, with jagged mountains and rice paddies, while the beach lined east coast extends to the south where the mighty Mekong flows to the sea. The country’s recent colonial history and colourful local traditions rub shoulders with a past filled with ancient glory and tragedy.
Each city has it’s own charm and sampling local dishes when travelling is the fast-track to understanding a country’s culture. The bustling chaos of local markets presents the opportunity to experience the true taste and smells of Vietnam.
