Majestic and mesmerising, Vietnam is a destination totally unlike any other.
A country of magnificent scenery and poetic charm, Vietnam is a delight to discover. Visually stunning and spiritually inspiring, benefitting from an incredibly rich heritage, remarkable cultures, and an unparalleled culinary tradition, there's nowhere on earth quite like it. Playing host to no end of inviting beaches with secluded coves, untouched virgin rainforests, and rugged mountains with mist-wreathed summits, this is a place of sublime beauty, where extraordinary sights and experiences seem commonplace.
A land of profound contrast, the sheer scale of Vietnam's diversity is captivating. Relaxing, exciting, spectacular, and everything in between, here you'll find everything you could ever hope for in a holiday. A rich melting pot of culture, thanks in equal parts to its location and its historical background, the north’s proximity to China and China’s 1,000 year rule has left a great influence on the country, impacting its cuisine and much of its traditional architecture in the form of pagodas and royal tombs. In the south, Indian and Hindu cultures have left their mark through the Cham temples and spicy regional dishes.
Located in the north, the capital Hanoi is a charming city which exudes personality. Considered by many to be among the most beautiful cities in Asia, its bustling streets are full of French colonial buildings, and interspersed with winding rivers, lakes, and parks, which inject a peaceful element into an otherwise hectic metropolis. Life is lived in the streets, prepare to jostle through crowds, lose yourself in the Old Quarter, and fall in love with the atmosphere.
The southern city of Ho Chi Minh is far more frantic than Hanoi, with towering modern buildings starting to dominate the once traditional architecture. It’s a city growing with fantastic speed, and a place which epitomises the country’s rapidly changing fortunes. A walk through the streets can take you from quaint pagodas to sheer skyscrapers that house mega-malls; the juxtaposition of old and new Saigon is plain for all to see.
The wealth of experiences on offer is staggering. Whether it's catching some sun on the award-winning beaches of Da Nang, or losing yourself in the bustle of a Saigon night market; drifting down the legendary Perfume River in a dragon boat, or admiring the unforgettable colours of a lantern festival in the picturesque Hoi An Old Quarter; cruising romantic Halong Bay, or visiting the world-famous palaces of imperial Hue, every moment is precious, and utterly unforgettable. In one of the most unique and exciting countries on the planet, only one thing seems certain: this will not be your last visit.
