Visit Vietnam

Lush tropical landscapes and electrically-charged cities are the defining impressions of this vibrant south-east Asian nation. Mystical temples and war monuments tell the story of a unique heritage and history, while the traditional life of the hill tribes has been virtually untouched by the passing of time. The country offers a feast for the senses where you can sample mouth-watering street food, get lost in the melee of local markets and ancient alleyways, and immerse yourself in local culture. From the ethereal beauty of UNESCO-listed Halong Bay and the peaceful waterways of the Mekong Delta to the buzzing streets of Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam has all the hallmarks of an exotic and exciting travel destination.
