Bustling cities, welcoming locals, tropical beaches and world renowned cuisine, Vietnam is a country on the move.

Unforgettable experiences are everywhere in Vietnam. From the seemingly chaotic cities of Hanoi in the north and Ho Chi Minh City in the south with their thousands of mopeds flowing through the streets like water to the more genteel and relaxed atmosphere of Halong Bay with its golden beaches, clear waters and mysterious limestone rock formations to the highland country of Da Lat, peppered with fruit and flower farms - each region as diverse as the flavours you'll find in the local cuisine. With world famous attractions like the Mekong Delta, Hoi An and remnants of the brutal Vietnam War including the Cu Chi Tunnels, travel and exploration quickly becomes addictive in this country of contrasts.
