A land of staggering natural beauty and complexities, of dynamic megacities and hill-tribe villages, Vietnam is both exotic and compelling. Vietnamese culture is complicated, diverse and reflects something of a history lesson.
Its ancient temples show Chinese influences in the north and Indian influences in the south. You will find unforgettable experiences everywhere you look. From gazing above a surreal seascape of limestone islands in the deck of a traditional junk in Halong Bay, exploring the world's most spectacular cave systems from Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park, to taking 10 minutes just to cross the street through a tsunami of motorbikes in Hanoi - Vietnam is a land of contrasts.
The gorgeous sandy beaches are home to picturesque luxurious resorts and restaurants, which make them ideal romantic getaways, while rice terraces around the hills make for hiking excursions
