Unlike some other countries, Vietnam has a long, some would say troubled history. It is a place of tradition, which is evident in its diverse architecture, cuisine, and festivals.
In the city of Hoi An, or the city of lights, which is also a world heritage site, you can visit the Japanese Bridge, explore the old Tan Ky House or hire a bicycle and enjoy the place at your leisure.
From Hoi An you can take a day tour of snorkelling, visit the nearby city of Danang, or head further into the mountains to Ba Na hills and take the cable cart to see the hand of God.
Nha Trang and Phu Quoc are hotspots for families, young tourists or mature travellers with 6km of amazing beach coastline, rooftop bars and clubs, and restaurants to cater for all types of budgets.
From Nha Trang, by cable cart or speed boat you can access Vinpearl land which is home to amusement and water parks, plus high end 5* luxury resorts with private beaches – Nha Trang is a personal favourite of mine.
Regardless of your interests, there is something for everyone in Vietnam. From the sand dunes in Mui Ne to the stunning beaches of Nha Trang, Phu Quoc or Con Dao island etc. Vietnam has something for everyone.
