From the misty mountains of the north to the lush rice fields of the Mekong Delta, Vietnam is a beguiling destination which rarely fails to charm. The epic landscapes, delightful cuisine and tropical climate are perhaps the biggest draw to the country, but it is often the warm, inquisitive and positive welcome of its people that remain the abiding memory of those who spend time in this alluring country.
For adventure travellers, Vietnam has it all. Northern Vietnam boasts the headline-grabbing spots of Hanoi, Halong Bay, Sapa, and Ninh Binh, but trekking and biking through the stunning scenery of Mai Chau, Ha Giang and Pu Luong provide equally awe-inspiring experiences, especially combined with local market visits and homestays. Central Vietnam, home to the cultural capitals of Hue & Hoi An, offers a range of stunning coastal walks and rides, as well as the lesser visited highlands around Da Lat. Ho Chi Minh City, proof that Vietnam is Southeast Asia’s finest example of the convergence of old and new, plays the part of the hub for activity in southern Vietnam, with access to the idyllic Mekong Delta.
With such a wide range of activities on offer, awesome landscapes, and some of the most hospitable people around, Vietnam is sure to leave a lasting, brilliant impression on every visitor.
